The Hidden Letters : AN ARTICLE

Ahona Das Book reviewer and editor


When you look at a woman, what is it that you peek at? The flesh behind the well clad dress? Ever tried peeking at the soul beneath the flesh? Ever wondered what her life must be like? What might make her smile? Or what secrets she might have been bearing beneath those layers of dress and flesh? 

Purba Chakraborty’s second novel will take you on a trip to a woman’s soul. You’ll explore it all: her secrets, her passion, her priorities, and her regrets. You will know what makes her a woman, phenomenal as she is. You will know what disintegrates her, and what rebuilds her up. You will get to know that a woman isn’t all so complicated as you assume. This book celebrates womanhood in a way, unique on its own.

What would you do when you were in a dilemma that involved having to choose between your guilt conscience and your daughter? What makes a writer? How long can you balance the tussle between your guilt conscience and your requirements? How long can you keep running from the truth, and the inevitable? How do you react when time serves itself as your worst enemy? What would you chose if it was an option between ‘living the life you’ve always dreamt of’ and ‘digging up the past to correct things that you did wrong back then’ ?

Are you a human, first? Do you celebrate humanity like the way it is supposed to be celebrated? Or do you get scared and opt for the easier way?

This book will help you rediscover yourself, in a way different to self-help books. In a way, more humanly. Place yourself in the shoes of the protagonist, and question yourself. Your true answers to yourself, will lead you down the road of self discovery.

The Hidden Letters will tell you a tale of a successful author and how she dealt with the adversities. Go through this book, for a series of self-realisations and rediscoveries about your ownself. The practicality of the situations will lead you to explore humanity in a way you had perhaps never thought of.

Yet, she is devoid of inner peace. In the wee hours of the night, her slumber is disturbed by horrifying nightmares. All her harmony is abducted and lost amidst the bunch of hidden letters kept in her cupboard. Those letters were written long back by her cousin, presently a patient at a mental asylum in Kolkata.

Haunted by her inner demons and tired by the long-time secrecy, she decides to put end to her misery by surrendering to her husband and daughter, The Hidden Letters... 

Will she lose her husband's love and daughter's respect? Can she forgive herself for her own selfishness which rendered her cousin's fate malignant?
