About the Book
Working as a wedding planner in upmarket Mumbai, Shaista one day discovers that tying knots is neither the beginning nor the culmination of a relationship. Human relationships often challenge or break free from conventions and social institutions. Krish, a young gay man moving into an apartment with his partner Kabir, and Mrs Banerjee, announcing a new man in her life soon after her daughter’s wedding, only extend the boundary of the bold new world. Pared off by Shaista’s keen eyes, urban life has rarely been chronicled in so many shades and nuances.
