9789385436451: Blueprint for Love

Haunted by memories of her dead sister and childhood home, Reva meets her sister's then-boyfriend, Suveer, every year for a day in a friendship that seems to offer each of them a way to come to terms with the past. Suveer is reporting an election story of 'dishousing' on a bungalow belonging to a Muslim businessman in a Hindu-dominated area of Gandhinagar. Unable to remain objective when the mob turns on Mahnoor, a young Muslim woman, he is beaten up and hospitalised. Without a second thought Reva leaves her husband and goes to him. Suveer and Reva seek shelter with Mahnoor and her husband Zahyan, who find the life they'd painstakingly constructed is slowly unravelling. This gripping story asks the question: where is home? Reva and Suveer, Zahyan and Mahnoor, be it in circumstances of love or loss, ever seek a path to return by.

About the Author:

Review:

Chatura does not bother with sifting fact from fiction, she just sifts true from false. And this is a true story. It beats straight from the heart. -- Kalki Koechlin A Blueprint for Love takes an unflinching look at the personal and political tragedies of our times while retaining the promise of the title. It is, above all, a story of love and of the struggle to stay true to oneself despite the odds. -- Annie Zaidi
