Where is life conceived? What is the source of existence? What bears excruciating pain and power at the same time?
In this collection of twelve stories Asha Iyer Kumar tells us how people are inevitably bound to what they create. This binding will make them despair, expect, and hope for their progeny’s future. It will push the creator and the creations to make unusual choices fraught with risks and retribution. They make these difficult choices because beyond all fear is freedom.
Through these stories of angst and hope that carry Kumar’s distinctive soulfulness and insight, you will live the positive frustrations of the characters who find the power to change their fate by taking the most unusual paths. To them, individual freedom is better than accepted ‘correctness’.
