Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Two idealistic lovers are leading the life of a Bollywood film script - until the real world encroaches in this modern retelling of the mythic Ramayana.

Like Rama and Sita, the mythical lovers of Indian history, a young couple set themselves the ideals of fidelity, faith and family. But in modern times, lines drawn in sand are easily obliterated by the drip feed of stress and the wet patch of temptation.

When the monsters of management consultancy rear their ugly heads, Chita fights to resist the demands of lust, money and loneliness. But her devilish US boss is utterly beguiling, and her husband Shyam is righteous and sulky in their Docklands loft.

As time unfolds, they discover that demons can catch you unawares. And that knowing the rules doesn't always mean you do the right thing.
