White Mughals captures a romance that blended cultural, political and religious spaces, considered taboo in eighteenth-century India. James Achilles Kirkpatrick, a British Resident in Hyderabad, fell in love with Khair un-Nissa, a Muslim Indian princess and the great-niece of the Nizam's Prime Minister, in the late eighteenth century in Hyderabad, India.

The Lowland written by Jhumpa Lahiri is a novel rooted in emotions, against the backdrop of the Naxalite Movement of the 1960s in West Bengal, India. The story of two brothers - Subhash and Udayan - bound and separated, like two poles of a magnet, is about the conventions and contentions in a relationship between brothers, between husbands and wives and between parents and children.
I failed, but I am happy I tried.

One Part Woman touches upon tradition, taboo, and conformity, while also throwing light on concepts like gender identities, relationships and marital struggles that are constantly in discussion in the present day scenario. That’s what makes it relevant. And it lets you understand that you really aren’t alone in your triumph or your struggle.
