The Harbinger:Patchwork

By Neerja Gaurie

A solitary woman (milieu 21st century India … an educated, trendy, modern and apparently free spirited one at that) describes her passage through life by jottings that reflect her moods … travails and happy moments, intricately woven that emerge as ‘patchwork’. A story unravels with a day to day account of life managed and lived while she goes through a tumultuous divorce proceeding. The setting is in sylvan and pristine, forested and mountainous surroundings, a solitary figure leading a soulful solitary life. This could be the story of any woman anywhere
