About the Book

 

Ek Chadar Maili Si, originally written in Urdu, is an extraordinary tale of ordinary people thrown together without choice. Rano, the heroine goaded by an inner psychic urge to survive, is forced to marry, Mangal, her brother-in-law, who is a good ten years younger than her and whom she had looked upon as a son, a son who had protected her all along from the wrath of his elder brother Tiloka, who was a sadist and a social misfit. She is ashamed of and in a peculiar way also happy in the new relationship. In this passion we find the traditional combination of the mother, sister and the prostitute.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
