Bridges and Crossings Meeting to Part and Parting to Meet

Author Name: Meera Sundararajan | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Life, they say, is like a journey that takes us through different phases. But sometimes, a journey by itself can translate into experiences that remain with us for life. Each one of us can remember at least one experience from a train journey.We run into people–faces—from the past whom we may want to avoid, new faces, strangers that seem attractive, unknown hands reaching out to help and unbelievable relationships that start to unfold.

 This book carries eleven such stories about people like you and me. Lives that are brought together on rails by the Indian Railways; the past, present and future converging like the tracks that intersect and diverge, moving towards different destinations, keeping that journey called life unbroken.

Meera Sundararajan

The quintessential traveller, Meera, has spent a large part of her childhood on trains, travelling across the length and breadth of India with her family. Almost every journey had her sitting by the window with her face pressed against it, the wind in her hair and thoughts chugging through her head in rhythm with the chugging train.

 A dreamer and a doer, Meera—the adult, has been working with the non-profit sector in India for over three decades, trying to bring about social and economic change. Much of her work involves travelling across the country to villages and obscure towns and interacting with different communities. An observer of people, their interactions and social dynamics, she began writing about her reflections on her blog Chronicles of an Unknown Indian (http://meerareflections.blogspot.com) in 2009 and later moved on to writing fiction in a second blog, Kaleidoscope (http://meeratales.wordpress.com).

This is her first publication where she has put together some of the stories from her fiction blog in the form of a book.

An avid reader and a music lover, Meera is a middle-aged mom with a ‘teenager’s heart’. She lives in Chennai with her husband, daughter and her cat.
