Shashi Tharoor says,
“In writing of Indian culture, I am highly conscious of my own subjectivity; arguably, there is more than one Indian culture, and certainly more than one view of Indian culture.”
I was intrigued and excited to be a part of Ukiyoto’s Stories from India for this precise reason. Because, I feel that there’s so much to India that the world does not know about. For my story, I chose a topic which talks about my favorite city, Mumbai. The infamous red light district of the city of dreams has had its fair share in literature via books and movies, but I wanted to present a different angle. So, that’s what my story ‘The Walls Have Ears’ is about.
A girl ventures out into this district one fine day and what she learns from her experience, is what ‘The Walls Have Ears’ is all about. This story is a part of the second title out of the Stories from India series released by Ukiyoto in 2019 (total 6 books and 40 short stories). Here is a look at two trailers of the series released by Ukiyoto.
So far my story from the book, besides winning the best story award out of all the 40 stories which are a part of this project, has also amassed some great reviews.
Here’s what my co-author from the book, Proma Nautiyal had to say about ‘The Walls Have Ears’.
