Description

These stories explore the complexity that is modern India: past and present, tradition and change, city and small town, idealism and greed, duty and individuality.

Kusum's writing brings to mind an often sad, often mysterious or desolate, Indian version of 'The X-Files'. She takes the seemingly ordinary fabric of life and tears it a little, raises a corner, or just shows us that we wrap ourselves in falsity and in grossly inadequate social garments. This writer shrinks from nothing. Her gaze takes in the obscene reality behind the cover-up as well as the para-normal and plain simple heartbreak.

But she brings us back again and again to a sense of our true humanity - with all our warts. She can shake up the precipitate at the bottom of all our social test-tubes and shows us what our shallow, seemingly clear self-image is finally sitting on top of it.
