  • Description

    The Edge Of Desire is a fast-paced and gripping book describing Shruti Rajan’s life and ordeals, and boldly addresses topics like the flaws in the Indian judicial system, gender crimes, the angst of the victims of rape, and many others.

    Summary Of The Book

    Set in the 1990s, The Edge Of Desire commences with a description of the VIP cell at Tihar jail, where Shruti Rajan was being detained. Shruti, the newly-married wife of Rohit Verma, the Deputy Commissioner of Kishanganj in Bihar, was a journalist who was the victim of a ruthless rape. Her assailant was Salim Yadav, a notorious man with strong political backing.

    Determined to seek justice, she encounters only dismissals and postponement at the hands of the corrupt state government. She joins politics to ensure Salim’s conviction and slowly grows to be a champion for women everywhere. She slowly refocuses on improving the nation’s security for women, and works towards changing the rape laws in the country. Throughout her crusade, she faces many emotional and marital problems, and is eventually deserted by her husband as well. The one person who stands by her is Sharad Malviya, a leading politician who takes her under his wings. He serves as her guide and mentor during her foray into the complex world of politics, and supports her steadfastly.

    A poignant and inspiring read, The Edge Of Desire chronicles Shruti’s troubled and heartbreaking story, and her fight against the outdated rules of the society and the machinations of politics. Published in 2012 by Hachette India, this gripping page-turner serves as a motivation for all women to stand up for themselves.

    Not for the faint of heart.

    Anyone who knows me would know that I don't read much of Indian writing, not because I have something against it (which obviously, I don't) but more because I can't relate to the writing style. However, after reading the synopsis, I started reading The Edge Of Desire, not just with an open mind but also with a lot of interest because the plot seemed to be deep and powerful.

    Let me begin with this - Tuhin Sinha's writing is nothing like the stuff I've read before by Indian writers. It's simp...

    The Edge of Desire - An incredible novel!

    The Edge of Desire is a marvellous read. It may be dealing with politics, rape and other issues, but at its heart, it is a beautiful exploration of relationship dynamics. Be it mentor-protégée, live-in partners, estranged lovers, father-daughter, husband-wife, leader-opposition leader, individual-society, victim-tormentor...and pretty much the entire gamut of relationships that a woman’s life can be influenced by, Tuhin Sinha effortlessly weaves them into an interesting story that makes you w...

    Too political... more like a documentry

    Tuhin A. Sinha has done a wonderful job in creating this novel. The journey of woman from no-one to someone is awesome. I enjoyed reading her journey. But my enjoyment was short lived.

    After about 150-160 pages (half of the story). The turn of events seems irrelevant. The first half of the story is a treat but the other half is like reading Indian history via some documentary files. I had to force myself to finish this story, I lost interest after I finished like 60-65% of it. Most of the th...

    A good read for fun... who has at least some interest in politics...

    Nice book to read. Yes, it's more like a political documentary and it seems some of it's story is related to an Indian politician. The hardliner approach and patriotism, policies, strong approach to protect country, but still don't want to hurt innocent etc etc..

    In all, a good read just for fun.

    The Edge of Desire

    I have loved reading Tuhin Sinha’s books and I’m eagerly waiting for his new book, ‘The Edge of Desire’. The book talks about a lady who is physically abused and how she decides to fight back when no one is willing to stand by her. It shall describe all the problems and difficulties that she faced. I feel this book would encourage women to be strong and fight for her justice come what may.
