    Shadow Play

    Aru and Rohit get married and settle down into the life of a working couple in a big city. Aru, still coming to terms with her mother Sumis death in a road accident and her father Gopals desertion of the family prior to that, remains the force that binds the lives of her sisters and her aunts. But tragedy strikes the family again, in the form of a devastating act of terrorism and a heinous crime, and Aru has to face some of her lifes toughest moments.

    Shadow Play is a masterful meditation on kinship, marriage, ambition and the changing face of urban India. Filled with a memorable cast of characters, it also tells the story of Kasturi, trying to find understanding and peace after enduring extreme cruelty and heartbreak; Kalyani, who atones for the wrongs society deals its women by an act of generosity in her death; and Gracy, Tressa and Ramu, a family torn asunder by a senseless act of violence.

    In Shadow Play, one of Indias most respected and accomplished novelists has produced a work that is deeply humane and contemplativeas much about the ephemeral nature of human life as it is about the enduring relationships that give it meaning
