These thought-provoking stories are documents of faith and treachery, displacement and trauma, anxiety and alienation, and recovery and regeneration. They dramatize individual aspiration, attachment, separation and division in the face of socio-economic constraints that force personal violence.

Though "Mother" explores tribal experience and ethos, the dialectic of dominant culture serves as the general backdrop. Pratibha Ray takes up ordinary lives caught in rather extraordinary situations. These stories have a contemporary look and perspective of social justice - a necessary fall out of development.

Their personal, intimate and topical nature combined with Ray's effortlessly lucid style offer a view from within that lead us to new insights.
