Walking into the Gale
The first story Platonic Imprint describes a lonely love. A rapid and perfect recovery from a near-fatal injury in the lower spine of a beautiful young daughter in New York led the entire family in Bangalore into a quagmire of questions, distrust, and infidelity before pure and unflinching love offering the answer. The daughters mission-truth later trace the fact surprisingly to a remote village in rural Bengal.
The second story Walking into the Gale revolves around the intense struggle and fighting spirit of a standard VII pass girl in the second decade of the last century in East Pakistan, now Bangladesh. A widow at the age of only 16 with two kids, followed by losing her teenage son in a freak accident, and a harsh mother-in-law, the luckless girl had enough reasons to break-down. However, her grit, determination and love for life saw her take over the responsibility to run the Zamindari and then an extremely successful NGO, setting in the process a silent social revolution about hundred years back in rural Asia. Later she joined the liberation struggle and helped millions of poor and displaced refugees. In her untimely departure in sleep a few weeks after a violent military coup, an untiring empathic soul bid goodbye to an unsung torturous life.
