The Silver Stallion
"There is an old legend that on the night of the full moon, if you float a lighted wick down the waters of the Pushkar Lake until it reaches the temple in the middle, then whatever you have wished for comes true. On one such night, Bishen and his father, after travelling 100 miles from Neelkote, arrived in Pushkar for the biggest animal fair in India to sell Moti, their only remaining stallion. Bishen had always had a special connection with Moti, their half Arab, half Kathiawar horse. And he would have liked anything but to part from him.

Heart-warming and crafted with tender care, 'The Silver Stallion' is a fine example of Nergis Dalal doing what she does best: tell powerful short stories. Read on."
