Kalal Kavalal (The Soldier who is the guard)

The narrative is swift and the depiction very dogmatic. The brisk narration creates a world of emotion. You read her story, the Kalaal, Kavalal, you will feel a spasm. The story is about an old spinster, a pensioned teacher being strangled by an old ex-military man, a neibhours. A scientific plot, which capitulates at an inevitable end. .The author Vatsala is talented. The exclusive narration creates a fearful atmosphere. Like a musician, she builds up the tower of story. She mixes the various components, skillfully; the sudden evolution of emotions reveals the tragic end which may contain a tinge of melodrama, yet I count it a great story
