The Shame's On You

Khyati Kohli

There isn't a pain as excruciating as watching your mother die in front of your eyes. The only thing that makes it worse is not knowing what could have caused her to end a perfectly normal life. As events unfold, Sheena finds out a harsh, impalpable truth about her saint mother that makes her question everything she'd grown up observing and helplessly believing in. The big bundle of dark mysteries slowly begins to unravel, and Sheena's highs and lows are finally put to bed when she finds out the twisted circumstantial reason that drove her mother to end her life.

Through this novel, the author asks questions that we're too afraid to ask and initiate suppressed conversations that have the potential to uproot the ingrained gender biases. Women who often try to look for a life partner in their husbands but end up finding a dictator instead will relate to the story on another level. Global exposure gained from living in cities like Los Angeles and Sydney forces the author to challenge the limitations of the misogynistic Indian society. By the end of this heart-wrenching story, readers are forced to rethink right versus wrong and reshape practices that have become the soul of our Indian culture.
