Sultry Days

Shobhaa De
Select Preferred Format

On a sultry, rainy Bombay day, Nisha, an impressionable teenager, meets God in the college canteen and falls in love with his ragged, bearded looks and crude, streetwise manners. God patronizingly accepts her in his ‘group’ and it is in this way that their long and passionate romance begins. God’s driving ambition leads him into the unreal world of pseudo poetry, art for hire and compromised journalism while Nisha lands a job in advertising. Sychophants, court jesters, whores, dirty old men, fixers, pretty boys and party girls drift in and out of their lives as their careers take off with dizzying speed. And then, abruptly and harrowingly, everything about their lives goes wrong.
