Zombie sighting:
His hands rose, zombie-like towards her, as if he couldn't resist touching her.
-chapter 35


First sentence(s):
The sun hung like a molten pendant on the horizon as Akash rolled away from his sleeping wife.

Sometimes we can't escape the webs we are born into. Sometimes we are the architects of our own fall.

Akash Choudry wants a love for all time, not an arranged marriage. Still, under the weight of parental hopes, he agrees to one. He and Jaya marry in a cloud of colour and spice in Bombay. Their marriage has barely begun when Akash embarks on an affair.

Jaya can't contemplate sharing her husband with another woman, or looking past his indiscretions as her mother suggests. Cornered by sexual politics, she takes her fate into her own hands in the form of a lit match.

Nothing endures fire. As shards of their past threaten their future, will Jaya ever bloom into the woman she can be, and will redemption be within Akash's reach?


My two-bits:

This story sweeps you up into an Indian family drama with a melancholy tinge. It was interesting to learn about various ways of life in Bombay especially in regards to street living.

  1. I would love reading it for the backdrop and setting, but cheating... that always grinds me.

  2. Ooh a "a melancholy tinge"? Sounds good.
