A young nanny fends off her employer's sexual advances and steps out into a world where she has no place to call home. A smug newspaper editor faces a shocking reminder of his mortality. A sex worker cruising the streets saves a journalist from her kidnappers. A cop gives an industrialist's wife some unexpected help to confront her past when she is caught shoplifting. An NRI makes sense of his chaotic life by inciting his students to read Marx's Capital. A housewife morphs into a deadly suicide bomber when a gunshot shatters the rhythm of her life. A baby gives a 53-year-old father a new lease of life. A car crash unites a pair of star-crossed lovers on Delhi's mean streets. A much married scriptwriter runs into the woman of his dreams and inks a new beginning on his skin. In A Happy Place and Other Stories, Vineetha Mokkil presents Tales that examine modern life and pulsate with the hunger of a teeming metropolis, the beat of the human heart, the ache of broken dreams.
