A Haunting Tale Of Abuse And The Quiet Strength Of Love

When Aniket Nair Bumps Into An Old Friend And Her Daughter In A Departmental Store, He Is Delighted At The Thought Of Being A Part Of Her Life Again. Still Susceptible To Maya S Easy Charm And Disarming Vulnerability, Aniket Slips Easily Into The Role Of Confidant And Guardian, Unaware Of How Deeply Life Has Scarred The Carefree Maya He Once Knew.

Years Later, Sifting Through The Journals In Which Maya Meticulously Recorded Her Troubled Life, Aniket Uncovers Answers To Difficult Questions That Had Plagued Him As He Witnessed Maya, Already Fragile From Repeated Betrayals And Constant Paranoia, Veer Dangerously Close To Breaking Down: What Exactly Did Go On Behind The Closed Doors Of Her Psychoanalyst S Clinic That Had Traumatized Maya So? Will The Other Victims Of The Unscrupulous Therapist, Whose Stories Maya Has Unearthed, Ever Get Justice?

Harrowing As It Is, Maya S Tale Is Yet Redeemed By Her Abiding Love For Mir, Whom She Considers Her Soulmate; The Succour And Calm She Finds In Sufi Thought; And Aniket S Own Passion For Maya, Which Remains Till The End Unrequited Yet Resolute . . .
