Fiction

An arranged marriage falls tragically short of expectations. In a beauty parlour, friendly gossip unearths uncomfortable truths. In pre-independent India, a young widow fights to succeed in a profession that is an exclusive male preserve. And an ageing music teacher refuses to let poverty snuff out her dreams. Underlying Nandita Puri's tongue-in-cheek humour and buoyant tone, is a rare perception of human nature. Her protagonists are women with minds of their own, driven by motives that are at times comprehensible, and at others, baffling - as full of surprises as life itself. Nandita Puri has worked as a writer and journalist with several newspapers including the Telegraph, Statesman, Times of India. She currently writes a weekly column on cinema for Mid-Day.
