About this item

As the middle child of an Indian family from Delhi, Divya survived her first trial by fire as a baby, but there were times when she wished those flames had consumed her.

When her father left for England to become a surgeon, her mother Tara struggled with the potential threat of never being reunited with her husband again - neighbours and relatives revelled in the worst case scenario.

With an extroverted elder sister and an ‘apple-of-her-parents'-eyes' younger brother, Divya was the reserved, serious one, the ‘good girl', who was obedient and couldn't stick up for herself. However, she yearned for her father's stamp of approval, but time and again felt inferior to her siblings. After having her own family, she makes sure she never subjects her daughter to anything but love. Unfortunately, when her husband is diagnosed with a debilitating disease, she struggles to keep things together. The healing power of an unexpected love gives her the strength to carry on.
Based on real life experiences, this story is an account of simple honesty...of negotiating ability and disability, of embracing joy and sorrow, of being fallible...and not.
