Echoes of Om

 
Rohini Bhatia-Singh (Author)
Synopsis A warm time-travel tale. Three women – a man’s sister, a daughter and a granddaughter – chronicle a story that will touch the hearts of women of all ages. The story begins in 1946 in Shekapura (now in Pakistan) and travels to Amrtisar in India via Canada. Through three different time frames. The women witness and record the loves and struggle of Dhiren Ralhan. In the process, they discover a journey which unravels an intricate search and definition for a identity… a unifying thread that weaves three different women’s lives together in a common pursuit of discovering themselves, their womanhood and understanding the time and country they live in (be it 1946 or 1971; present-day India or Canada), crossing cultural, societal, ethnic and gender boundaries. A struggle within themselves and their country which, during the brief passage of time, is pulled apart within the seams of a boundary dispute; the geographic rifts tracing back and transcending a common diaspora and identifying indefinable common mosaic that forms Indian and Pakistani society. Finally, in a present-day context it’s a search for belonging as an Indian in the global stream lost in the consciousness of generations past and yet having to strive to cultivate and shape a vision and identity in the worlds of all tomorrows.
