a, to Rungthung and finally to Kanglung in east Bhutan to escape ethnic clashes, unrest and himsa, the omnipresent and many-faced violence which follows her. Set in the small, scenic hill town of Kanglung, much of the story is told through a dialogue between two women: Sukurmani and her Memsaab. Through her Memsaab s eyes, we get glimpses of Sukurmani s life, past and present. We witness her struggles to make ends meet as a single mother, an illiterate labourer and uninhibited tribal in an alien land. We also see her as a self-reliant, resilient woman living her own life with willful little Surju, who trails her like a shadow, a participant in all his mother s joys and sorrows. As the narrative unfolds, an unusual bond forms between these two different women: two Indian expatriates, one legal and one illegal. A poignant and thought-provoking story simply told, it lingers even after the last word is read.
