Shobhan Bantwal's compelling new novel is set on the streets of Edison, New Jersey's Little India, where a young businesswoman rediscovers the magic of love and family. . . Since becoming a widow at age twenty-seven, Anjali Kapadia has devoted herself to transforming her parents' sari shop into a chic boutique, brimming with exquisite jewelry and clothing. Now, ten years later, it stands out like a proud maharani amid Edison's bustling Little India. But when Anjali learns the shop is on the brink of bankruptcy, she feels her world unraveling. . . To the rescue comes Anjali's wealthy, dictatorial Uncle Jeevan and his business partner, Rishi Shah--a mysterious Londoner, complete with British accent, cool gray eyes, and skin so fair it makes it hard to believe he's Indian.

And the feeling is mutual. . . Love disappointed Anjali once before and she's vowed to live without it--though Rishi is slowly melting her resolve and, as the shop regains its footing, gaining her trust.

The Sari Shop by Rupa Bajwa Summary

Young Ramchand rushes through the dusty streets of Amritsar, once again late for work. Chastised by his boss, he takes his place among the cottons and silks of the sari shop, selling yards of cloth to the wealthy and fashionable women of the town. Offered a glimpse of a more opulent world, Ramchand is seduced by the idea that he might somehow better himself. But making dreams real will come at a price that a poor shop assistant might not be able to pay ... Funny, compelling and unflinchingly honest, The Sari Shop is a heartbreaking story of a young man's struggle to be someone else and a brilliantly clear-sighted debut.

The Unexpected Son by Shobhan Bantwal Summary

What happens when a woman who's realized her dreams wakes up to a shocking truth? Shobhan Bantwal's poignant new novel weaves a captivating tale of one woman's return to India: the place where she lost everything--and now has everything to gain... It is a morning like any other in suburban New Jersey when Vinita Patil opens the battered envelope postmarked "Mumbai." But the letter inside turns her comfortable world upside down. It tells Vinita an impossible story: she has a grown son in India whose life may depend on her... Once upon a time, a naïve young college girl fell for a wealthy boy whose primary interests were cricket and womanizing. Vinita knew, even then, that a secret affair with a man whose language and values were different from her own was a mistake. He finished with her soon enough--leaving her to birth a baby that was stillborn. Or so Vinita was told... Now, that child is a grown man in desperate need. To help her son, to know him, Vinita must revisit her darkest hours by returning to her battle-scarred homeland--and pray for the faith of the family she leaves behind... Praise for Shobhan Bantwal and her novels...

Été 1845. Après des années de débats politiques, New York crée son département de police. Timothy Wilde intègre malgré lui ce fameux NYPD. Ancien barman, il a tout perdu dans un récent incendie : son bar, ses économies et une partie de son visage. La nuit du 21 août, pendant une ronde, Timothy est bousculé par une petite fille terrifiée. Elle porte une chemise de nuit couverte de sang. Au milieu d'un tissu de mensonges, elle finit par lui révéler qu'elle fuit un homme au capuchon noir qui découpe les enfants en morceaux. Le lendemain matin, le corps d'un petit Irlandais est retrouvé dans une poubelle, une large incision sur le thorax, les organes à nu. La fillette disait vrai, un fou s'en prend aux enfants, mais pas n'importe lesquels, les plus démunis, les immigrés. Timothy se lance dans une traque effrénée pour démasquer cet assassin et éviter que ses sinistres desseins ne mettent la ville de New York à feu et à sang...

F-rated: Being a Woman Filmmaker in India by Nandita Dutta Summary

What does it mean to be a woman filmmaker in India? One famous director suffered from depression, unable to take on film projects because of her young child. Another was asked in an interview if she drinks and smokes to deal with the stress of filmmaking like men do. Some faced cinematographers who refused to listen to them. Almost all of them struggle to raise money for films with female protagonists. But they are also cool and sassy. One attended film-school with her two-week-old baby. Another stormed the once all-male bastion of the 200-crore club. They can make a hit film about a middle-aged housewife, as much as a bisexual teenager with a disability. F-rated brings together diverse stories of eleven women filmmakers in India: Aparna Sen, Mira Nair, Farah Khan, Meghna Gulzar, Nandita Das, Shonali Bose, Tanuja Chandra, Anjali Menon, Reema Kagti, Kiran Rao and Alankrita Srivastava. A celebration of their womanhood as much as their work - this is a must-read.

A very angry bus driver, abandoned by his wife and going nowhere in his career; a sanctimonious conductor; a hijra, or eunuch, a remnant of India's Muslim glory days; a nervous, half-Indian businessman clutching a briefcase-full of cash; a right-wing Hindu matriarch; a young boy returning to his village after robbing his employer . . . They meet – and witness a tragic event – only because they are all travelling on the same bus, in the same direction, on the same day. With exceptional poise and beguiling simplicity, Khair introduces a range of voices, thoughts, ideas and identities, allowing each individual’s story to unfold gradually. ‘A novel that reflects deeply into the nature and circumstances of human mobility in our modern, unforgiving world’ Siddhartha Deb, Outlook ‘There is much to enjoy here . . .

Band Baaja Boys by Rachna Singh Summary

BA-pass Brajesh sold bras in Manphodgunj. Perhaps his destiny was sealed the day Babuji named him Bra-jesh. Under normal circumstances, Brahmins were not supposed to be businessmen. But Kumud Bajpai had brought along a hosiery shop as dowry and there was no looking back. Only front. One glance and Brajesh could estimate, ‘Madam, 38D will be perfect.’ Together, they had produced and raised Binny, their twenty-year-old daughter who they lovingly called a ‘happy-go-lucky’ girl: happy to spend her father’s money while different fellows got lucky. Binny was now an undergraduate student at the University of Allahabad and classmate Gajendra-going-bald was besotted with her. He would smile in her general direction throughout the entire lecture. One day at the lab, she had leaned over his workbench, letting her dupatta slip to allow a peek at her cleavage and had pouted, ‘What is in your hands?’ A lot was in his hands later that evening. Now, Binny was in love with Rahul, or, to be more precise, his situation. You see, Rahul was a rich man’s son and stayed in a palatial bungalow with an army of alert minions. When they yelled, ‘Ramu, Tiwari, Jagdamba’, servants would jump out of the pores of the house in an instant to serve them. But, unknown to Binny, Raja was in love with her and had won over Brajesh’s heart by eliminating goon Ramlal from the encroachment next to Kumud Hosiery and Bedding. To complicate things further, her parents were looking for a suitor. She had asked best friend, Manjul with feigned exasperation, ‘Marriz… marriz… why human beens need to do a marriz? Why?’ But Manjul was a pious girl, easily outraged into calling out to God. Let’s help Chumki elope with Azhar. Hey Bhagwaan. Let’s eat two-two ice-creams. Hey Bhagwaan. Binny’s latest plan was so alarming that Manjul was compelled to summon all possible gods, some even borrowed from other religions, to express her utter and complete shock. Will Binny choose ‘gorment’-job-holder Tarun or Sanskari-N.R.I Harsh? Would Raja be able to win her heart? How long will Brajesh be able to keep the suitors on hold with excuses like: ‘My mother’s death-birthday is coming’,’Kumud’s chacha has became a widow’, or ‘Our family pandit himself is in Planet Saturn’? Will Binny execute her dangerous plan? Band, Bajaa, Boys! is here to take you on the laugh-o-coaster of your life!
