About the Book

Chasing the mirages of life in the sands of despair, one tends to set upon a journey of disarray, exemplified by Chandra’s self-perceived ugliness that stymies his adolescent urges, Nithya’s plight brought about by Vasu’s jilting, Prema’s dejection occasioned by Sathya’s juvenile delinquency. Unfolding the possibilities of life in the oasis of hope in Chandra’s self-discovery and Sathya’s atonement, the novel depicts the pitfalls in ‘stalking ways’ through Nithya’s retribution and pictures the poignancy of poetic justice in Kala doing a ‘Sathya’ to Sathya.
