The Habit of Love

This book of short stories is about women and the strange workings of their heart written over a period of two decades. It brings out the threads that have bound women throughout history - exploring emotions as contrasting as loneliness, love minus riders, motherhood and a woman`s need to find her words and voice in a society that has overlooked the mindspace of the other sex for centuries.

The stories are both everyday and exotic like that of journalist Madhu Sinha, who strikes a quaint kinship with a man as young as her son, a swan which acts as the narrator of the tale of Nala and Damayanti and pert young miss Vatsala Vidyarthi, who suspects her one night stand of stealing her money.
