The Hand Of Destiny (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 16, 2021 11:57PM
Description: Rajalakshmi Meenakshisundaram, a traditional, god-fearing wife and mother, has led a sheltered life in India. Her happy world in Chennai is shattered when her only child, Venkat, dies on his birthday, the victim of a terrorist attack in France. She must now travel to Paris with her husband to claim Venkat’s body. Katherine Mary Flannigan, a mother of three, is a loving wife and staunch church goer. The Irish Flannigans have lived in the little town of Blue Hampton, outside London, for generations. Jonas, her eldest son has been missing for a week when she learns that he has blown himself to bits in France, having secretly converted to Islam just a year before. The village is split on accepting his body for burial in the church cemetery. Katherine and her husband James must now travel to France to claim Jonas’ body. What happens when the two women meet? How do the men in their lives battle their own vulnerabilities and inabilities as they come to terms with their loss? How do those around them deal with the tragedy? This is the gripping and poignant tale of going past the biases we all carry, the assumptions we make, and the guilt within when we have failed those we love. What links us? What separates us? What is identity after all? What remains of faith when it is put to test? What is destiny? Is there hope at the end of the maelstrom?

Who stands to gain if Anika dies? Jeet is seething with anger at being left penniless. Is he playing a lone hand? Are old Ayahs and stepmothers to be trusted? Why would someone want to kill Anil? Is Inspector Kumar to be trusted with the case though he loves Anika? But then, everyone loves Anika… Or, do they? As you enter into the world of Anika, Anil, Ajay, Jeet, Kajal, ‘Yah, Kailash and Vimala, the misty hills, and hot steaming pot of tea brewing away… you realize all it takes is a little bit of poison added ever so easily, to kill someone gently with love.

A Thick Fat Finger and other stories (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: How is one lovely moment different from another, except by the quality of savouring? This is a book of simple every day stories told with an honesty and simplicity that that would move the readers to think, smile, savour and fall in love with life and all its little moments all over again.

“You are truly home only when you find your tribe”
Srividya Srinivasan

“Be very very very gentle with yourself. The world is very very very hard on you”
Srividya Srinivasan

“Of all the deep longings, this ache for missing intimacy, cuts through sharply, like a scream in a silent room, like the last gasping breath under a stifling mask, like the huge lump in the throat that one is unable to swallow. This deep ache to be held, to know touch both the casual and intense variety, to catch an eye in answering laughter, to merge into oneness, to sing through existence in resonance with another, to simply be in deep love in openness. to live and die in intimacy and vulnerability in a loved one's arms. And, you ache alone...”
Srividya Srinivasan

“He could not take his eyes off her. Would she recognise him? Were their destinies linked this time? He had begged them to allow him this last chance. His seventh attempt. If he failed, their destinies would be severed forever.”
Srividya Srinivasan

“She did not care what a ludicrous picture she might be painting, a fat happy old lady in her night gown, swinging on a small little swing in the dead of the night.”
Srividya Srinivasan

“They prised open the door in the morning. The beatific expression on his face was exactly what one would find in a temple deity or the just dead - an unsmiling smile. The absurdity and humour was there if one could just see it, the question and answer staring one in the face”
Srividya Srinivasan, A Thick Fat Finger and other Stories

“The nights and days had merged, trapped in that little house held captive by a stubborn old woman.”
Srividya Srinivasan

“May every man find the softest and most fragile expression of his personality with the right woman who would treasure and honour the beauty of his femininity and not misuse it and may all women find empowering and supportive men who would exult in her self expression and success without fear of being overshadowed by the power of her masculinity and in that beautiful new world, shall we enter as partners, equal and empowering, supporting and caring, vulnerable and strong.”
Srividya Srinivasan
