"A good mother is a dead mother," according to one of the characters in the novel. What is it like to be "diligently loved"? Can one stay sane through self-analysis? What will it take to make this world a better place? To reduce that "anxiety of influence," of civilizations? How to make the dispossessed, contented? What does it mean to be a woman? You get the answers from two girls. Anarkali and Anna.Their stories. A million thoughts/theories. A postmodern look at the world through the eyes of these Nazrani-- Malayali, Syrian Christian-- women. The personal becomes political in the lives of these mothers and virgins. A multi-layered, multi-voiced story that spans two nations. And one (or more?) slippery narrator who wishes to, and thinks that s/he controls it all. Welcome to the Nazrani show!
