Sand Storms, Summer Rains

March, 2009

Asha's debut  work was a 450 page  novel, a daring act, one would say. The book portrayed two protagonists working the Middle East, where Asha has spent the past 22 years. Life in the Gulf has been a recurring theme in Asha’s stories, bringing out different shades of expat living here.  Sand Storms, Summer Rains was one of the first English novels to be published by an immigrant.

Hymns From The Heart / Poetry

December, 2015

Using simple language to impress profound thoughts on Love in its purest form, 'Hymns from the Heart' is a melody that will touch and heal the heart. Each verse appeals to the highest order of aesthetics in a unique way and gently taps into the poetry that lies slumbering in each of us. It works like a salve to soothe the soul hassled by modern, material concerns. It is a symbol of what defines our existence - Love and its spiritual magnificence.

Let it be, Love

October, 2018

There is a lot more to marriage than just living together. There can be yawning gaps between two people sharing the same home space or there can be a closeness that physical distance cannot wipe away. There is no one way to keep the relationship ticking. No set rules except the resolve to keep it, any which way.

In this collection of three stories, Asha Iyer Kumar teases out moments from the lives of three dissimilar couples and takes us on a ride that traces queer conjugal conundrums.

After The Rain - Stories that bind us

September, 2019

Is closure important in life?
Among life’s endless oddities, regret has a special place. The ‘what ifs’ and ‘only ifs’ assail us right from the childhood until the fag end of our lives. And closure is an elusive state that some of us receive, some of us construct, and still some of us never see it at all. When an aging actress re-examines her journey, a doting husband obsesses over the perfect gift, two lovers try to find privacy, a human statue looks for worth, and an old couple find friendship by chance—they are all hoping for closure.
