About The Book
Covid-19 Pandemic breaks out and a young couple has to cancel a much-needed holiday flight. Ananya and Chintan, disappointed as they are, take a different flight altogether – the flight of imagination into ancient times. They tell each other stories about characters whose voices have remained unheard through centuries.Like a dinosaur , an alien , a concubine from the Indus Valley, a single mother from the Upanishads. the Apsara who gave birth to Hanuman, the Rakshasi who married Bheema, the physically challenged but mentally alert palace-maid Manthara, the deserted princess Damayanti, the dying prince Duryodhana, and the neglected wife of an elderly sage. Their voices have never risen above mere mentions in recorded texts. In this novel, they get heard by Ananya and Chintan , a couple from contemporary times.
