Description
Back of the Book

That day was eleventh January...Suddenly Mandira wanted to break open the window and jump out of the room. But the very next moment the herself was puzzled. What made her long for this? Why should she die now? … A little later mandira discovered she was running from one room to another; but why?...She tried to restore herself –composure as she remembered that she was staying indoors that day only to relax … Than she lit another cigarette. She hoped that the book, cigarette, TV and the snug feeling of the bed would come together and compensate for the loneliness within her;

From the Jacket

Mandira, a girl from Calcutta, goes to London to pursue higher studies. Within a few months of arriving there, she marries Thomas Brockway, a promising young aristocrat with enviable political lineage. By the time Tom (Thomas) has been elected M.P., Mandira finds herself celebrating the silver jubilee anniversary of their marriage. Her grown-up children, Robin and Liz, are well settled in life. Suddenly at this juncture, Mandira experiences a strange emotional crisis. All at once, she brings down the curtain on her twenty-six years of married life and opts for a different way of life—of self-imposed solitude, initially in England and then in India. But to what end? What is this crisis that has compelled middle— aged woman to forsake the certainties of a married life? Does she attain what she has yearned for or does life still have surprises in store for her? And is her filial affection, particularly for her daughter, reciprocated? Do her children attempt to find her and reconcile with her decisions?

The protean nature of this novel evades typecasting. Many socio—pohtical, moral and feminist issues crises-cross the fabric of the novel, at the heart of which lies its enigmatic protagonist. She embodies the underlying tension of the offbeat storyline and shifting that keeps the reader spellbound.
