Description

Nine finely nuanced stories that explore the themes of desire, intimacy and love... A contractor at a dam site develops so obsessive a desire for a tribal woman that he brings home and holds captive another man’s wife; a kathak dancer trapped in a marriage of convenience with an older man talks scathingly of fidelity; an accidental step into an occupied bathroom changes a young Delhi servant boy’s life forever; a young married couple beleaguered by infertility desperately tries to reignite the romance and passion of their honeymoon on a houseboat in Kashmir. Set across India, each of the stories in this collection unerringly locates the defiant undercurrent of individual expression in a world shackled by societal norms.
