An excerpt from A Twist of Fate

Hi folks,

I’m sharing today an excerpt from A Twist of Fate. In this, Charulata is meeting her father before her wedding, and he sees her dressed as a bride ready to commit the wedding vows.

*

Oh, my lovely daughter.’ He pinched her cheek. ‘Can I bear to send you off?’

‘Don’t send me then,’ she half pleaded.

‘Charu!’ he chided gently.

‘Why does a girl have to leave all that is familiar to her?’

He sighed. ‘Fathers have been asking this of themselves since eternity. And will continue to ask this. It’s the way we have made for ourselves. We have deemed one hand dearer than the other and every father must pay the cost for the decision he upholds.’

She said softly, ‘I will abide by your decision then, pitashri.’

‘Proud of you.’ Her father kissed her forehead. She hugged him, a constrained one, because of her coiffure and ornaments. He grinned and she half joined in, pretending not to notice the moisture in his eyes.

A Twist of Fate is a historical romance set in early medieval India, focusing on the vulnerable position of women in the society.
