It is the story of 2 Indian women who are childhood sweethearts in an era when queer love was still illegal in India. Their love for each other is so beautifully described and emphasized in the book. This book has so much Bollywood masala in it. I feel such books are really needed in present times. Many people in India still think queer people to be ill. It is time to open their eyes and see love for what it is irrespective of gender.
