Of what I remember from this book is a failed attempt at Lesbian romance, a pedophile romance, a pervert classmate and another pedophile man. In contrast to this scenario is Animika herself, a budding intellectual who devours books—among other authors, she has read DostoevskySartreKundera and Bradbury and reads Nabokov ‘s Lolita during her trip to Kasauli—and at school excels at maths and physics.


She’s also cruel, manipulative, and severely self-absorbed. She let out a howl.

In her breathless moans and her cries of pleasure I owned her more than I owned myself and was immersed in her more than I had ever been immersed in my own self. Anamika uses sex as a means to investigate life’s chemistry and her autonomy outside of rigid Brahmin mores. If the unusual secondary characters occasionally seem as gratuitous as pornographic movie extras, Anamika’s ponderings and emotional reversals are lavished with as much attention as a year-old girl would demand.

With the world of adulthood dancing before her, Anamika confronts questions that would test someone twice her age.

Anamika resists all advances by men, in particular those by her classmate Vidur’s father, who, at their first encounter, asks vy she call him Adit rather than Uncleji and wants to meet her again, alone. That her best friend is a boy is also one of the taboo ways in which our heroine snubs her nose at the outdated patriarchy of her society.

The protaganist is one of the vy interesting characters I have ever encountered. But this is not a morality tale about the girl who tried to have it all and was left with nothing.
