Haunting BombayBook - 2009
As the supernatural weaves into the narrative of family life, the Mittals must struggle to come to terms with the secrets that had been locked away behind a mysterious bolted door. Themes of hidden shame, forbidden love and a call for absolute sacrifice enrich this beautifully written novel. Agarwal unfolds the story against an intense portrait of Bombay, delving into the world of the slum-dwellers, prostitutes and hermaphrodites who survive on the peripheries of Indian society.
