Braids is about old-fashioned romance in today’s day and age. You cannot choose the person or the path, but you can choose the person you want to be. The book talks about a tussle between love and duty that tests the mettle of each character and how they come through the inner conflict that rages within us all.
The story is about a love that is lost, an impossible dream that could never be real. The distance between wanting and having is what is called real life. Often, a person has to choose between love and duty; the crossroads that determines the path our life is to follow.
The swath of the book extends from the metropolis of New Delhi to the rural interiors of the desert state of Rajasthan with a sojourn to the backwaters of the coastal state of Kerala.
Braids is a novel, somewhere between fictional romance, and a tale untold. A book dedicated to old-fashioned romance of yesteryears in today’s day and age, was a challenge in itself. The completion of this book has been a journey; an endeavour to show how people can control their actions, even if the situation is beyond their reach.
It is my hope that you, dear Reader, experience the book as you read it. As a fellow human who feels, thinks, believes, hopes. I believe everything begins and ends with the mind. Once it reaches the heart, it just stays. Hope Braids touches a chord with you too; for, to reach you, this is the only path I can pave. Enjoy what you hold. Enjoy what you have.
