A still, dense, ancient forest. A dark cave deep within. And in it a woman-child whose beauty can move the most pious to sin. Who is she and why did she jump from a moving train to land in the biggest cremation ground teeming with aghori sadhus?


In this story spanning generations and redolent with Gothic imagery, Shivani urf gaura Pant tells the story of a woman's life, her moral and mental strength and her resilience. She also examines the choices women have in her beautiful, descriptive prose.


With an erudite foreword by her daughter and scholar, Mrinal panda, and a preface by the translator, this book is Shivani for the 21st-century reader.
