  • Description

    Halfway up the Mountain, by Kiran Khalap, is a simple and poignant story of a village girl who wishes to discover happiness outside of her mundane life.

    Summary of the Book

    Maya hails from a village and belongs to a traditional family. Although she comes across as a simple girl, Maya fights adversities and many-a-heartbreak with conviction and an unassuming courage. The men in her life that she gets the closest to abandon her but she lives through all these trying times as an independent, free and successful human being. What strikes the most about her is the humane side and how she manages to live in a society which doesn’t appreciate the integrity of single independent women. While unravelling the story of Maya, the author subtly brings out other elements like homosexuality, sexual politics, painting, poetry and music, and all this in an Indian context. Although we like the idea of a modern India, certain insensitive practices and mind-set still seem to prevail in our society and the book deals with them all in a brilliant story-telling elegance.

    Not this, not this.

    If you read this book superficially and take it at face value, you’ll get a very good story.
