Six Yards of Silk
By Mallika Krishnamurthy

This narrative flows between India and New Zealand, through memory and loss, tastes and sensations; as Sharmila seeks to understand the mysterious disappearance of her brother, Ramesh. The arrival of her aunt, Meenamma, deepens Sharmila's journey exploring what we take with us and what we leave behind if we weave a life between one end of the globe and the other. Like a sari folds and wraps around a woman's body, this story intertwines and unfolds Ramesh and Sharmila's lives in a story that resonates as a deeply human search for redemption wherever we are.
