Koral Dasgupta’s third book talks about changing power equations in the backdrop of an ambitious cultural show to be held at Manhattan. It narrates the captivating journey of a self-made and self-assured protagonist, behind whose success lie the contribution of two very different women – one who makes his home, and the other who believes no one better can compliment him better on stage.
“Two women wait for him at two different ends of the crossroads. He knows which path is his, but he can’t walk that path till he has attended to the other.”
One perfect couple. An obsessed seductress. A Bharatanatyam show in Manhattan, New York. One hell of a love story.
Raj Shekhar Subramanian and Manasi, both Bharatanatyam dancers, are made for each other. Till an obsessed fan, Vatsala Pandit, enters their lives, testing the man’s character and his wife’s patience. But then why does Manasi invite Vatsala to her Bharatanatyam show, for a dance of passion with her husband—the very man vatsala wants to take from her? Why did Shekhar agree to take in Vatsala as his student in the first place? This singular love story deftly explores the many facets of love—mutual trust, obsessiveness, the arrogance of passion, the need for self-fulfillment, the yearning for the beloved and the complexity of modern relationships.
