Description

This fictional novel probes the universality of feelings of love and desire among people of various races and religion under varied circumstances. For Radha, it is love at first sight when she sees Prakash and the fact that Prakash is a married man is dismissed as a minor detail. Prakash is attracted to Radha’s sensuality even though he is very much in love with his wife. As youngsters trying to make a place for themselves in the world, Phillip and Gomi have to make a sense of their yearnings for each other. Prakash’s wife Kathy sensing her husband’s betrayal uses the same approach partly to pacify herself and partly to radically transform the life of someone she cares for. For Kathy’s friend and soul sister Maya, sex is the culmination of companionship.

The story is spread across Asia, Africa and America. In many ways, Kama, the dance of love, lust and desire, is the main player of this story, ripping apart the lives of seemingly staid, mostly middle-aged characters and forcing them to re-examine their beliefs. Pick up the book and find out how Kama dances through the cast of characters leaving a hurricane in its wake!
