Jasoda : A Novel by Kiran Nagarkar

“A novel that stops your breath and doesn’t let go until you get to the end. Jasoda: mother, murderer or saint? You’ll want to put her down. But she won’t let you.” —Manjula Padmanabhan

Kiran Nagarkar, the Sahitya Academic Award winner for his epic novel Cuckhold, represents ‘Incredible India’s’  miserable side through his innovative character ‘Jasoda’. The story’s melancholy tune camouflages a deserted village called Para, deprived from any culminating cultivation it suffers a disastrous drought resulting most of its inhabitants departure to other places in the virtue of ‘Struggle for Existense’ including Jasoda. The story’s undercurrent climax can underpins a ‘parallel harmony’ with other mythological jinx likewise Mahabharata, Odyssey, Iliad etc. With the passage of time, Para reconciles it’s posthumous stature. Will Para return forbidding her newfound accustomed happiness? The story speaks of the tedious hardship, the lonely battle as lead by Jasoda.

So before the bookstores run out of stock, go and get a copy of your own as early as possible since .
