Descrizione

This short story, naughtily titled as Winking in Wunderland, is a caustic satire that mocks at the duplicitous wink-and-nudge goings-on in the world of media and mass communication, banking and business. Understandably, Winking in Wunderland jabbingly alludes to the politics of winking and goes out audaciously to link winking to the business of media, particularly of print publications and television.
As you read this short satire, you can feel the plot taking a potshot at the unmistakable pretensions by lifting the curtain of winking. This short story, you will be surprised to appreciate, lifts the veil on how mediamen wink their way to construct their winky ‘stories’ for broadcasting and publishing. This satirical short story happens in Wunderland, a wink-wrapped dystopian state, where winking is business as usual.
If you say this short caricature is all about ‘winky’ journalism and ‘winky’ movies, you would not be far from being right.

Informazioni sull'autore

Harish Kumar is a former business and financial journalist with an exposure to the printed word for more than two decades. Committed to sharp writing, editing, analysing and commenting, Harish Kumar has served most of the leading business dailies, fortnightlies and dot-coms in India.As an Indie author, Harish Kumar is noted for his rare insight into Indian linguistic quirks and eccentricities, language thoughts and philosophy, linguistic attitudes and approaches. As a keen observer of the English language and the interesting twists and turns it takes in modern-day journalism, Harish Kumar has ended up becoming an Anglophile himself, a lover of words to begin with and now a commentator on words and their idiosyncrasies.Harish Kumar loves writing on transformation of words, new avatars in usage of words and the rampant abusage of simple words today, particularly when the writer-speaker tries to employ them as word-metaphors. Thus, you can say Harish Kumar is an incorrigible metaphorist. He is also an accomplished commentator on journalese of the times.Harish Kumar also loves writing fiction on human interest themes, besides authoring original works in areas of business, banking and finance.As a relentlessly pen-pushing scribe, Harish Kumar has authored more than 1,500 stories, many of them dealing with path-breaking and trend-setting themes in the domains of business, banking and finance. He has even produced some globally-acclaimed ranking lists. Some of these lists have taken him to the pages of the prestigious International Who's Who of Professionals (1998) and the Baron's Who's Who in Global Banking and Finance (1999).Harish Kumar is now a self-publishing author on the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing and on the Smashwords publishing platforms. Launching his second writing career only recently in 2013, Harish Kumar has authored and self-published as many as 11 titles already.These are: Metaphoric Madness, More Metaphoric Madness, Much More Metaphoric Madness, Not the End of Metaphoric Madness, Who Took the Orange from my Rainbow? Mega Projects Mega Realities, Canons of Corporate Surgery, Conspiracies of Colours, Politics of Eponyms, Winking In Wunderland and The Post-Pandemic Planet.All these titles are available as e-books, on Smashwords, Amazon Kindle stores, D2D stores and Google Play Books, and also as print-to-order paperbacks in Amazon and Google Book stores around the world.
