Neelum Saran Gour (Author)

Allahabad, Rehka and Amina meet after what seems like an eternity. They have shared much in their days as young neighbours in Bulbul Kothi: dolls, gossip, bits of adult-only knowledge. Perhaps things would have been different had Rekha’s affair with Danish-Bhai not ended in bitterness and heartbreak all those years ago. Now in their fifties, they would like to put certain details behind them. If they could.

A new age of cell phones, communal tension and terrorism forces out the past they buried, leaving them with a brutally clear understanding of what they once considered a simpler time. Now, all they are certain of is that Amina’s visit will leave them forever changed. Neelum Saran Gour’s assured narrative explores the changing relationships between two friends and their communities, seamlessly bridging the past and present.
