Twin Tales From Kutch
Twin Tales from Kutcch is a family saga with a strong ethnic flavour set in the colonial era in India. It is the poignant story of two courageous women, orphaned at a tender age by the tragic loss of both parents. Had they not been separated by a large age gap, they may well have been twins, so uncanny are the parallels in their young lives. Yet the two are separated by the force of circumstances and they grapple with their loss each in their own way as their lives play out side-by-side, unknown to each other. The new century dawns and sweeping changes take place in their personal lives as well as on the national stage with the steady march towards independence. Will their paths cross again? Through a compelling and immersive narrative the book offers a fine blend of nostalgia, historical detail, ethnic traditions and family lore and at the same time touching on subjects such as the status of women, communal co-existence and the plurality of religious traditions and cultures, issues so relevant even today.
