book of the week - under the Pipal Tree by Anjana Chowdhury
7 March 2017

A few weeks ago, an amazing woman came to Retreats for You on one of our writing retreats and wowed us with her rapping (yes really!) and told us about her new book now out inc on Amazon -

Under the Pipal Tree

Rohini, a wealthy Indian woman of Mumbai discovers a shocking truth about her identity. As she struggles with the truth and battles with periods of depression, Rohini develops a candid and supportive relationship with her therapist.

Maria, her childhood nanny, unravels their past. The stories of the two women merge and each learns something from the other. Indira, Rohini s mother, pragmatic and outspoken, is the tent pole of the three women s relationship.

In a tale of secrets, and social prejudices, the three redefine their boundaries with each other and the world..

Sounds good, I think! Especially if there's any of the magic of the tall tales she was telling in front of the fire each night!

" the portrait of three women in relation to each other in the complexities of contemporary Indian society.
A delicate way of writing from Anjana Chowdhury. A first novel with colourful details of sceneries and human observation of relationships.
A marvelous fiction taking place in Mumbai and Kalkota."
