In Blind Alley, Yogesh presents stories about gender norms, social norms and social taboos. The stories challenge the social norms that go unquestioned most of the time as people live a life that society dictates.
After publishing 500 Miles, I built on the stories that dictate social mood with more questions. Do we have answers to all the questions from these stories? We might not, but at least it will create a doubt in readers’ mind. All the stories in this collection take place in central India, but I hope the emotions and doubts they create, are universal.
