    1. Krishna didn t know much about how washed up, likely murder victims were handled, but he was sure just cremating them without a thought wasn t how it usually wentis is one of those zombie stories that is concerned with questions of humanity than questions of zombies which is nothing new zombie crisis as springboard for philosophical ruminations makes up roughly 45% of all zombie stories and i usually enjoy the use of zombies to explore or illuminate universal human concerns, but this one gave [...]

    3. He felt uneasy, not at the sight of the resurrected dead but at the roiling crowd he had to push through to witness this miracle, the street dogs biting and barking amid them to try and get to the corpses, only to be beaten back by the police Some people lowed like animals, spoke in tongues or pretended to, blabbered prophecy priests and sadhus and charlatans chanting to eager flocks of potential followers, many calling for the immediate destruction of these men and women who had been reincarnat [...]

    4. More than brains and rotting flesh, Breaking Water is an empathic zombie story with metaphysical themes set in India.

    7. Very quick read, but packs a real punch This story explores a different kind of world where the dead have risen instead of an apocalypse, this is a world where beauracracy has stepped in, where people adapt to the notion of checking a box on a form stating whether they want to be prevented from returning after their deaths The reality of trying to maintain a reanimated corpse is described in depth these aren t the desiccated zombies of 2016 s The Walking Dead , these are fresh, bloated with the [...]

    8. Since a few years, one of my secret ambition has been writing a zombie apocalypse novel taking place on the Southeast Asia region I have always dreamed about what would happen in such a post apocalyptic situation, whats with the huge number of population living in this area and the lack of weapons and other means of survival for the living Well, someone has finally taken this job hands on, but the writer Indrapramit Das does not focus on the survival issues nor on the horror and action elements, [...]

    9. You may read online at Thor.At first, Krishna thought the corpse was Ma Durga herself A face beneath sun speckled ripples to his eyes a drowned idol, paint flaking away and clay flesh dissolving But it was nothing so sacred as a discarded goddess The surface broke to reveal skin that was not painted on, long soggy hair that had caught the detritus of the river like a fisherman s net Krishna had seen his mother s dead body and his father s, but this one still startled him.

    10. This is a very quiet little story about what if there were zombies and they bit people but they weren t really violent and mostly just presented a public health nuisance for the governments to figure out and nobody really panicked or had to change much of anything except their viewpoints on the finality of death Yeah, that about covers it If that sounds fascinating, you will probably find this short fascinating If that sounds kinda dull and weird well, I m right there with you.Here it is tor 201 [...]

    11. This was a quick read with an interesting concept, but it never really gripped me in the same way other Tor shorts have It s a zombie story, but instead of dealing with survival and trying to defeat the zombies, it focuses on how the resurrection of some dead people impacts views of the afterlife, and whether the dead have the same rights as the living The dead do occasionally bite people, but they re inconvenient than dangerous.The story is set in India and focuses on a man who discovers a bod [...]

    12. .2 stars but not a bad two stars, though Its an indifferent two stars It was OK The writing was nice and interesting but very very strange take on the undead Like very strange.Some strangeness below In the morning air, flies clothed the woman Hesitant crows perched on her shoulders and head forming a feathered black headdress, bristling with flutter She gave no regard to her beaked guests nor their violence as they haltingly pecked at her flesh, somewhat confused by her movements, but not enough [...]

    13. This story really shook me The premise of the story is simple suddenly dead people come back, not as zombies, but as brainless shells The protagonist of this story is Krishna, a young man that is quite unsettled when he bumps into a woman s corpse during his morning bath in Kolkata s Hooghly River Initially he declines to do anything about it, after all, why should he take responsibility for a stranger But when the dead start coming back to life en mass, he rethinks his position and the debate a [...]

    14. Fantastic idea corpses come back to life, but the reaction is less apocalypse and bureaucratic in conflict with compassion , however, I just wasn t connected to the actual narrative I didn t quite understand the choices of the protagonist Perhaps this would be an idea best explored in a novel, or at least a novella.

    15. She looked at Krishna Was there recognition in her eyes No, she hadn t even awoken to new life when he found her And yet Shit, man This whole story is so intense and intensely thoughtful it s one of the few zombie stories I can say I like.

    16. Elegant and unusual take of the zombie story Almost horrific for its lack of a true apocalypse Instead there are just truly terrible choices to make Love to see a longer tour of this world.

    17. Zumbis, eu nao estava preparada.ZUMBIS novamente eu nao estava preparada ZUMBIS NA INDIA pelo amor de deus, leiam logo esses contos da Tor

    18. So, the dead were risen not because of some kind of viruses or fungus A zombie apocalypse never be this dramatic.
