Why are you still alivewhy didnt you die?

Years on, Sarita still remembers her mothers bitter words uttered when as a little girl she was unable to save her younger brother from drowning. Now, her mother is dead and Sarita returns to the family home, ostensibly to take care of her father, but in reality to escape the nightmarish brutality her husband inflicts on her every night. In the quiet of her old fathers company, Sarita reflects on the events of her life: her stultifying small town childhood, her domineering mother, her marriage to the charismatic young poet Manohar (who turns vicious when he realizes his career is going nowhere and that his wife has overtaken him professionally), her children. As she struggles with her emotions and anxieties, Sarita gradually realizes that there is more to life than dependency on marriage, parents and other such institutionsand she resolves to use her new found truths to make a better life for herself. The Dark Holds No Terrors is a tremendously powerful portrayal of one womans fight to survive in a world that offers no easy outs.
