Description

This volume is English translation by Sujata Patnaik of Balivada Kantha Rao’s Telugu novellas Love in Goa and Matsyagandhi.

Monsoon Showers in Goa is a gripping saga of two star-crossed lovers thrown together by destiny in Goa, the last Portuguese bastion in India. The Goan way of life, their Portuguese legacy, festivities and cuisine, adherence to honesty, coupled with their happy-go-lucky attitude finds expression in this romance.

The Mythical Mermaid is a poignant tale of human frailties, love and betrayal woven against the backdrop of the lives of the Koli fisher folk living in the west coast of India. Soni, the protagonist who is torn between her passionate love for her impoverished lover and her unflinching duty towards her father, faces a tragic end when the truth of her father’s last moment’s dawns on her.
