Set in Mumbai, this novel traces the political maturation of Pervez, a young parsi woman whose marriage to a Christian has fallen apart. A Novel that looks at contemporary issues while giving an insight into the Parsi way of life.
A thought-provoking work, written with compassion and the conviction of belief.
Coming from an affluent background, Pervez is drawn into the activist movement in the months preceding the demolition of the Babri masjid, to find herself confronting fundamental beliefs regarding social privilege, justice, religion and secularism. Her outrage is tempered by a survival instinct that propels her into action and eventual catharsis.
