Every face has a story behind it. In her collection of seven novellas like the hues of a rainbow, Archna Pant gently lifts the veil and allows you to see the dreams and tragedies of ordinary lives and, as gently, lets it fall again.

An innocent lively girl child is married off to a much older man. She manages to create rainbows even in the desert. An orphaned boy craving for love and home leaves his beautiful valley to chase an elusive dream. An ayah of a college is regularly beaten and finally murdered by her husband. Will she and her daughter find justice? And more…

She is a storyteller who makes you want to grab the person sitting next to you and say: ‘Read this!’
