This book is based on the true story of a woman, torn between tradition and her wish to live. Her grandmother was widowed at 24; mother was married at 11 to a 39-year-old wrestler. Priya, the third-generation girl, is an angry witness to their trauma. In search of Identity and Love, the conventional girl encounters various shades of hypocrisy and sexual starvation and is completely transformed. Conjugal love is marred by unemployment and interference by in-laws. Marriage and pregnancy are not free from patriarchal politics. She feels liberated with the death of her husband and rejects the conventional value system, which denied happiness and love to her and her mother. If ultimately the body is to be burnt, then why not live it?
But would she be able to find love?
