More About This Book

Overview


Hermosa y melancólica, sutil y elocuente, la primera novela de Anuradha Roy narra las vicisitudes de una familia bengalí en la primera mitad del siglo XX por medio de una cautivadora historia que ilustra la inmensa diversidad social y cultural de la India, de sus paisajes y sus gentes, desde la fragante exuberancia de sus jardines hasta el hacinamiento y la miseria de las grandes ciudades. En 1907, el joven matrimonio formado por Amulya y Kananbala se instala con sus dos hijos en una amplia casa con jardín en la ciudad de Songarh, antigua cuna de sabiduría ancestral y lindante con la jungla. Allí, Amulya funda una pequeña fábrica de medicinas y perfumes confeccionados con plantas silvestres, y se entrega a las comodidades de una vida plácida y rutinaria, sólo perturbada por las tensiones que la insularidad del enclave genera en la familia. Años más tarde, cuando la inocente complicidad de su nieta Bakul con el joven Mukunda —un huérfano sin religión ni casta reconocibles acogido en la casa desde niño— amenace con convertirse en algo más serio, éste será enviado a una escuela de Calcuta, expulsado del único hogar que ha conocido. Sin embargo, con el transcurso del tiempo, los distintos hilos de la historia convergen de nuevo en Songarh. Mukunda, convertido a su vez en empresario, regresa para reencontrarse con el mundo perdido y compartir el incierto destino de la familia.

    She nods. "She doesnt seem to care about you, Dear. Do what makes you happy." She grinned and yawned. "I must sleep now. Goodluck! If you need me, just summon me. Sage will explain if you truely need me again." She kicked off the ground and flapped her massive wings, within seconds she was gone.
