They are best known as lizards that can change color to camouflage into their surroundings. Pranava Tripathi’s, 15 Chameleons, brings to mind, the famous lines from the timeless classic by Mohammed Rafi, “Is rang badalti duniya mein, insaan ki neeyat theek nahi…”
We’ve all known them, worked with a few, maybe even lived with one. They are human chameleons. Through guile & cunning, they know just what to say & do, to please the powers that be, along the way, as they make their way up the professional ranks to reach positions of power & then there are others who play the game of deception in their personal life. Human chameleons make a fascinating case study and it never ceases to amaze me that people fall for them, all the time.

Dark satire seasoned with a dash of humor, 15 Chameleons, is a brilliantly crafted collection of hard hitting & impactful short stories, by a remarkable writer, that will prick your conscience & compel you to think. In Pranava Tripathy’i stories, I came across, all kinds of people, who are morally corrupt, scheming, foolhardy, ingenious, crafty & naive; characters & situations that most of us will be able to relate to. People who are too wimpy & weak to be real, to be honest with others about who they are, might get away with it for some time but eventually they are exposed & their magnificent house of cards come tumbling down. This book awakens the mind to the realization that there is no alternative to honesty and it is better to be known for our honesty & integrity, as no heritage is so rich as these.
A master storyteller, Pranava Tripathi’s writing is characterized by evocative intensity and he tells it, exactly like it is.
A book not to be missed!
