About Book

This story, set in the nineties, is about two individuals, Vasantha, a temperamental young woman, trying to come to grips with the world after annulment, and Sakthivel, a deserter, artist and social worker all rolled into one, whom she chances upon during a visit to an artists' village in Madras or what is now Chennai, who then goes on to become her friend, philosopher and lover.

Being the youngest one from an orthodox family of four, Vasantha, influenced by the free spirit that Sakthivel is, struggles to break free from the fetters of typical middle-class conformity that she feels are as outmoded as her overbearing father is.

Impressed more by Sakthivel's candidness than his zeal for pro bono social work, she is invariably attracted to him and gets drawn into a relationship that is neither well defined nor satisfactory. Sakthivel's many endeavors take him to villages in the south, sometimes with Vasantha in tow. One takes them to a drought-ridden village whose elders are engaged in a huge power struggle, as a consequence of which, many inexplicable calamities besiege the village.

Despite a veiled warning from the village sarpanch's phlegmatic wife, Vasantha and Sakthivel keep visiting the village until disaster, swift and deadly as a scything sickle, strikes without warning....
