Fault Lines

Admitted to the hospital with  severe injuries from a gas explosion, Anjan keeps meeting Savio, a friend from his childhood. In the interactions, Savio holds up the moral mirror for Anjan to come face to face with the private demons from his past.

The explosion unearths a long lost letter which explodes his relationship with his wife Jaya.

“From Jaya’s diary: What do you say when all that which gave meaning to your life lie broken and anguished in the space-time continuum which was once your own?”

Fault Lines is part of my forthcoming book, ‘The Chronicler of the Hooghly and other stories’. Should you wish to receive exclusive previews and the chance of winning a free copy of the book, do write to me @ author.esgee@gmail.com

    1. Dear Bela,

      It is such a pleasure to hear from you, after quite some time. I do miss your posts; to me, their poetry and philosophy had always brought in nourishment for the soul.

      Do keep in touch. Stay safe, stay well.

      1. Thanks, Shakti! I will get back to writing, but it may be the winter before I do it. This move has taken so much out of both of us, and we are finally settling in to our mountain home. There was quite a bit of remodeling to get the house looking the way we like it, so that’s what we’ve been working on. We have had project houses before, so that is nothing new. And this one will just be a matter of a short time. It already looks fantastic. I hope you and yours are well, and wish you all the best in your writing career! Blessings. 🙏

      2. Hi Bela,

        I am delighted to know that you are settling down well. As and when you get fully settled, I would love to see some pictures of your new environment. Knowing you, I remain certain it would be heavenly.

        Look forward to you getting back to blogging.
