If you are looking for a tale of hope, then this is definitely not one for you. The narrative is slow and dragging and I could not wait yo get to the end of it.
When one day Nanda receives a letter from her daughter Asha asking her to take care of her great-granddaughter Raka, a feeling of anger, disappointment and loathing arises in her. She doesn't feel like conversing again, she doesn't want to make sure of another's life and comfort, she doesn't want to get involved anymore.
Upon Raka's arrival they work out means by which they can live together and each feels she is doing her best at avoiding the other. Nanda is a recluse out of vengeance for a long life of duty and obligation, Rak is a recluse by nature and instinct. Her parents have long given up to try to socialise her. But slowly the child has the capacity to change things and Nanda discovers new needs within herself. When finally violence explodes, she has to face the truth.
An original novel full of delicate observations about human nature and parental relationships.
for ME this was an excellent book, which doesnt mean u will necesseraly like it. if ur looking for some meaning, maybe this book could help u find some. it surely helped me.
