This Novel speaks of a day of a girl on the verge of adolescence in a tropical town of Malabar. But the very day contains many fractions of time-days, months, years or even centuries of past and future. It could be said that the story is about a girl who called herself 'R ( not 'ar but 'err') and the things which grew inside her like wild parasitic vines, but the very story is entangled with those of some others who bore heavy things inside them including lamps which burn them out.
