The Girl Beyond Love

Archana Abhishek

About this book

This is a love story of a simple and shy Aarti, who falls in love with Karthik beyond her marital vows. But she has to make a choice - love or responsibility, self or family, freedom or condemnation.
An unorthodox, yet realistic love story, which unveils the dark instincts of life and the discovery of inner desires. The book attempts to emphasize the untouched angle of feminism, which is often termed as being bold and undaunted.
Aarti very beautifully depicts that a timid woman is a feminist too, and does take a stand for her identity and dignity, only to define and complete hers

The Golden Staircase

Harsh Vardhan Khimta

About this book

The stories in this book take you through the different worlds inhabited by their characters and coloured by their destinies. While 'Sobs from the Attic' results in the complete surrender of the woman to her helpless situation, 'Tashee' culminates in the supreme grit and determination of the character of a woman who puts her everything on stake to protect her honour in an alien land, under unprecedented circumstances. The worldliness of 'The Deal' is contested by the other worldliness of 'The Golden Staircase'.
The stories cover a wide range of human emotions and situations, from the fickle minded protagonists and the lighthearted environment in 'Gado' and 'In Love, That Year' to the sombre and macabre darkness in 'The Ghostman of Annandale' and 'Morgan Lane'. The texture of the prose is woven into the reality of human existence in a way that sinks the reader into its vastness with every next page.

Beyond Bodies


About this book

Dhubri, a small border town. During her initial struggling years, her mother, Arpita's forlorn face and her parents' conspicuous incompatibilities torment Meera. She is intrigued by the fact that her beautiful and intelligent mother is married to her vile and repulsive father.
Soon, she comes across her mother's closely guarded secret past, where Arpita and her beloved Krishna were madly in love with each other. Circumstances replete with conspired betrayals separate them, which seem prophetic.
Years later, after her father's demise, Meera discovers an emotive bond between Arpita and Krishna that craves for a definition. Despite their advanced ages, she tries to unite them. Arpita relents, citing a prophecy that seemed to have befallen. Finally, the old lovers agree to marry while on a visit to Meera in the US. On the eve of their much-awaited marriage, Krishna goes to attend one meeting with an important client with a promise to return, while her old mother waits.
