Overview: A Song for I
Before Ira knows it, she is sucked into his world of searing aspiration, as he makes desperate attempts to preserve his musical legacy through his daughter. A Song for I is about Ira, an amateur sitar player and freelance journalist born to a mother, who chose to die rather than live under her husbands shadow, and a father who abandoned her at birth. Ira grows up in an emotionally wracked household with her grandparents, the Samaddars, and an enigmatic aunt, Mrinalini fighting to not let the latter write her destiny. Driven by the yearning to move towards the greatness she believes she is destined for, Ira confronts the challenges life throws at her some cordially, some others grudgingly. Thats when she meets Vishnu, an aspiring rocker. Ira spontaneously embraces Vishnus exciting and dark universe, until she realises she cannot settle for the ordinary. With Indian classical and rock music as the dueling backdrops, A Song for I is about love lost and found, spiritual music, sensual experiences,...Read more »

About the author: Chandrima Pal
Chandrima Pal has been a journalist for fifteen years and has interviewed political bigwigs to cultural stalwarts. When she is not writing, she is usually in the kitchen, where she perfects her brand of culinary alchemy under the watchful gaze of a couple of pigeons and three roving sparrows. But she likes nothing better than travelling with her guitar-playing husband deep and high in the Himalayas and Europe being her favourite destinations. A Song for I is her debut novel. Chandrima can be reached at www.chandrimapal.com
