AABHAL By Shankar Patil
The Sky The name Shankar Patil is now well recognized in the world of Marathi literature. His savour dialogues and language with its rural touch binds together perfectly well giving it a definite touch and freshness. He very aptly combines the various changes in the nature, the social changes and the combined effect of it on the rural life and culture, in his stories. Memories are like the clouds, full of rains, ready to pour anytime, endlessly. Sometimes, they pour lightly and sometimes very strongly. But the memories have the strength to evoke the deepest cords, tenderest moments. The meanings of memories change from person to person yet they fill the mind with the resonance of the monotonous rain and the cloudy mind merges into the cloudy sky.
