Since you’re here; you already know there’s a book, called ‘Kathputli’ and that it’s been written by somebody with a name that is rather a mouthful. But perhaps you’d like to know more in a nutshell rather than go through the whole website to get the picture; time is of the essence nowadays, is it not? Then read on.
First about the author. Ushasi Sen Basu (to be henceforth referred to as ‘me’ or occasionally ‘I’) is a professional editor and writer who lives in Bangalore. This is her (my) first book.
‘Kathputli’ is about a girl called Chitrangda, who goes in search of a story for her Great Indian Novel, and finds it when she travels home to Kolkata and attends a family reunion. She hears about the mysterious disappearance of her grand aunt, Mala, in the 1940s ; a few years after the brutal murder of a young freedom fighter at the hands of her family. Chitrangda is immediately drawn to the mystery and decides to get to the bottom of it. What emerges teaches her that nothing is ever as it seems, and some secrets are best left uncovered.
