Fated to do and to die,
only to remember,
then forget -
Mrs S. Pankajam has always lived two lives: one of ordinary fulfilment in her experiences as a wife to her husband and a mother to her two daughters, and the other a life of desires and observations that only her mind is privy to.
When Mrs Pankajam starts losing her memory, her doctor recommends she keep a diary to maintain a semblance of continuity in life events. At first, Mrs Pankajam is reluctant. What is so spectacular about her life that warrants its story being recorded, she wonders. But as she sets pen to paper, meticulously documenting her daughters' unexpected eccentricities, the chance discovery of her husband's hidden side and guilty admission to indulgent illnesses, she finds her childhood persistently wrestling into the present as a marked reminder of a past she cannot run away from.
Now, Mrs Pankajam must discover herself anew, confronting her long-held beliefs about the world, ask herself questions she thought she had left far behind and make amends while still possible.
