Part One, India Reunited – An Excerpt

India Reunited

A short except from my novel, on which I’m currently working…

“More likely, she thought, she’d hang the very next corner and find the Devil himself, standing at some street side roti shop with a bag full of battered souls in one hand and a lassi in the other, sipping to his heart’s content. What devil would not be content in a place where there were so many people dying everyday, that the living stepped over them on the street-sides like bricks slipped out of the wall, just sitting there waiting for you to stub your toes on them, just lying there with frozen faces, wickedly waiting to trap a foot, a hem, a glimmer of remorse, a sliver of empathy.”

    • Hi Ashok,

      Thank you so much.

      The book is about the dualities of the human condition. Depicted through a girl in her mid-twenties trying to find emotional and psychological reconciliation after a traumatic experience. She journeys to her mother’s homeland: Calcutta, India in the hope that reconnecting with her roots and her heritage will help her find herself again. Part of the story is set in India and another part is set in her homeland, Guyana. It’s aimed at being a study of choices and the brutal realities of life.

      I’ll share a few more pieces from it, as it comes along. 🙂

  1. Ridiculous. It doesn’t take more than a few paras to know stuuuupid talent when I see it.
