Fall in love with India and the bustling city of Mumbai in Ajay Kaul’s book of short stories, Mumbai Matinee, truth-based fiction that acts as both memoir and travelogue.
Orange County, CA -- Fall in love with India and the bustling city of Mumbai in Ajay Kaul’s book of short stories, Mumbai Matinee, truth-based fiction that acts as both memoir and travelogue. Mumbai Matinee portrays the veritable feast of the commerce, people, and danger which make up India’s most populous city and financial capital. Filled with eight interconnected short stories based on Kaul’s life and work there, this charming book is a terrific pleasure read and highly recommended if you plan to visit.
“This is one delightful book – more than just a fine memoir: this book speaks to the oneness of mankind in the finest manner. Ajay Kaul has created a credible contemporary love song to Mumbai and cordially invites us to join him.”
– Grady Harp, Amazon Top 100 Hall of Fame Reviewer
“The events and stories captured in Mumbai Matinee are a reflection of my own experiences in and around the city,” says Kaul. “What stands out about Mumbai is that it is perpetually open for business. Even occasional acts of terrorism have not been able to create a dent in the commercial mindset of the city. People can look for opportunities and count on them. There is huge encouragement everywhere.”
The tenderness of humanity also abounds. “During bomb blasts, people were volunteering their vehicles to get others to the hospital,” says Kaul. “And on a train, men will stand to give children seating. In Mumbai, life gets shared. You are not alone.”
The stories traverse love, danger, and the compassion of strangers in a city that never sleeps. Meet Sawant, a street vendor whose kiosk serves as the area’s gossip and information network; Ashok Pawar, the cop who becomes entangled in bombings and global terrorism, which Kaul experienced first-hand during the 1993 bombings; Rajat and Roohi, the interfaith couple who touch and change Ajay’s life; and Smita, actress extraordinaire, who steals his heart in a tragic love story. And what book on India would be complete without a compelling tale of the sport of cricket?
“One of the true gifts and pleasures of reading is its ability to transport us all over the globe and into new and sometimes very different ways of life. Such is the case with Ajay Kaul’s mesmerizing memoir, MUMBAI MATINEE.”
- John J. Kelly, Detroit Free Press and Cincinnati Beat book reviewer
(Available on Amazon )

He fell in love with the city’s energy and people, and his book of short stories, Mumbai Matinee, is based on his experiences there.
An extensive writer and blogger on the subjects of management and leadership, Kaul plans to write his next book on these topics. Mumbai Matinee is his first fiction book.

Sanity Lost & Found: A true Story of Brainwashing and Recovery by Tarra Judson Stariell
Nov 15, 2017
(Memoir, abuse, cult, personal growth, inspirational) How do we become victims of our own irrationality? What makes us vulnerable to the predators among us? Why would an otherwise sensitive, intelligent woman allow herself to return again and again to her abuser? How do we stop the erosion of our self-worth?
Simultaneously recognizable and horrifying, we see parts of ourselves and our own vulnerabilities in this compelling story of one woman’s descent into and climb out of the abyss.
For anyone who has ever allowed themselves to be victimized, for anyone who has ever doubted their value, for anyone wanting to protect their children from such vulnerabilities, SANITY LOST & FOUND is a compelling, informative, and inspirational read that weaves together the how and why for such vulnerabilities and the components necessary for recovery and transformation.
Tarra Judson Stariell is a licensed Marriage, Family Therapist with private offices in Escondido and San Diego. She is a local trainer with the Southern California Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis and previously Faculty Chair. She has been working in the field for 16 years and specializes in working with trauma, auto-immune and dissociative disorders.
Tarra believes in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship, incorporating Bioenergetics and other mind-body approaches in her work with clients. She believes in empowering the individual in the therapeutic process, facilitating the discovery of one's true potential, with all their abilities, wonder and mystery.

ABOUT David Miles
Many people have urged me to write this book now for decades. I’m not writing it out of reservation, just with the hope that it is taken seriously and with the understanding that nothing I have written has been made up or embellished.
Please take to heart the things that I have brought to light, and, I pray, that you would absorb them into your heart to really be honest with yourself, so that on the day you confront God, you are found to be one of the accepted.
