Description

A modern classic about an independent young woman's struggle to hold on to her identity in a traditional world.

Inside the Haveli is the story of Geeta, an educated, vivacious Bombay girl, who marries into a conservative family and abruptly finds herself living in purdah in her husband's ancestral haveli. Faced with this and other traditions that threaten to snuff out her independence, the story unfolds how Geeta manages to carve out an identity for herself in the new and ostensibly stifling environment she has been plunged into.

The freshness of her prose, the simplicity and tenderness of her evocation of an ancient and traditional way of life, and the understanding she brought to it are the hall marks of this work.
