People on our Roof
Paper Type: | Size:

In a once-grand, now down-at-its-heels bungalow in a south Delhi colony lives Naina with her mother, sister, and the stigma that madness ‘runs in the family’. When a woman’s face peeps in from the mists of her childhood memories, Naina sets out in search of the truth behind her father’s disappearance. Then comes a call that begins to unspool the past.  People on Our Roof is a portrait of one woman’s undying commitment to her kin; her struggle with relationships, and a heart-wrenching story of indestructible love between two people.  A coming of age story, it also explores the world of people whose minds are wired differently.
