Description

In the wake of her mother's death, Shalini, a privileged and restless young woman from Bangalore, sets out for a remote Himalayan village in the troubled northern region of Kashmir. Certain that the loss of her mother is somehow connected to the decade-old disappearance of Bashir Ahmed, a charming Kashmiri salesman who frequented her childhood home, she is determined to confront him. But upon her arrival, Shalini is brought face to face with Kashmir's politics, as well as the tangled history of the local family that takes her in. And when life in the village turns volatile and old hatreds threaten to erupt into violence, Shalini finds herself forced to make a series of choices that could hold dangerous repercussions for the very people she has come to love.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Sneha Mathan voices the first-person narration of Shalini, who experiences a political and emotional awakening as she unravels the mystery of her mother. She journeys from her comfortable Bangalore home to unfamiliar Kashmir to find the man who can show her her mother in a new light. Initially, Mathan's voice sounds too grave to fit Shalini's disconnected description of herself. However, this seriousness reveals its purpose as Shalini is drawn into the secrets of the man's family and grows in her understanding of their world and her own. The richness of Mathan's voice gives the sinuous story weight. She enlivens each character's part with subtle inflections that reflect a range of speech ranging from British English to Hindi accents.
