This is a story of a village girl - Maya who fights her fate in a traditional Indian family. She makes steamed pancakes with turmeric leaf fragrance and skips school. Her fate is tied to Ravindra in an arranged marriage that falls apart when Maya meets the poet, Krishnarao. This is a tale of snakebites, separation and liberation. Kiran Khalaps novel is a poetic work, in which prayer, spirituality and reality are interwoven.
Born in 1958, Kiran Khalap juggles three passions (writing, rock climbing, spritual evolution) and one career (he is ex-Lowe Lintas; ex-CEO Bates Clarion; co-founder Chlorophyll Brand Consulting).
