Dawn to Dusk is a compilation of fifty-eight articles, published in prominent newspapers by the author from time to time.
These representative stories, which are the outcome of the basic human impulse to give meaning to one's experience, and to share it with others, deal with the quintessential ethos of the social milieu that the writer comes from To be sipped and savoured by the readers with the first cup of morning tea, these spoonfuls of life add some sweetness here and spice there in one's otherwise predictable routine.
This collection is a mélange of wit and humour on the one hand, and pain and pathos on the other; a mixture of light-hearted anecdotes, nostalgic recall, pertinent issues, as well as some reflective musings. With the sole aim of eliciting a smile or a nod of endorsement from her readers, Narinder Jit Kaur writes with passion, in a prose that is precise and nuanced, and a style that is perspicuous and eloquent.
