As India awakens in its struggle for freedom, the brave and beautiful Ela Sen must fight her own war: a war in defence of a forbidden love. Decades later, in modern-day India, fiery journalist Oona Roy lives life on her own terms, wielding her pen against the corruption around her. But then her world begins to crumble, and a desperate Oona embarks on a quest that leads her to the discovery of the life of a woman who had lived long ago and who had been as unhappy as herself. Little does she know that her leap into the past will be the making of her future. Spanning centuries and cities, Two Worlds explores Bengal's rationalist movement, the murky Hindi film industry and the nexus between the glamorous world of Bollywood and the quiet anonymity of London and Wales. It is the confluence of two worlds, of two world-views, and above all, of two strong-willed women, both far ahead of their time. About the Author Nandita C. Puri made her literary debut with Nine of Nine, a critically acclaimed collection of short stories about the urban Indian woman. She is the author of Unlikely Hero, the best-selling biography of her husband, actor Om Puri. A columnist with major Indian publications, and a screenplay writer, Nandita wrote the Bollywood film Mera Dil Leke Delho. She lives in Mumbai with her family.
