Author Name: Annu Pillai | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

An innocent and naive village girl, Meenakshi, is full of expectations about her marriage with her cousin. Preparations are in full swing, and she is waiting on wings for the big day. Unknowingly, she trespasses into the secret world of the ‘rebels.’ She realises that her own brother is the leader of this group, which is dreaded and hated by the villagers. Revelations shock Meenakshi, and she relents to help them in a small way but is unwittingly absorbed into the vortex of their secret activities. Meenakshi witnesses the systematic annihilation of her friends by caste lords of the village. It is her turn, but she escapes. 

Meenakshi’s childhood friend disappears into thin air, and her well-wishers are seen no more. Forsaken by her lover and disowned by her family, she is riddled with questions that have no answers. Fate seems to play a crucial role in unearthing the lost treasure that she has desperately waited for.

Annu Pillai

Christened ‘Anna,’ Annu C Pillai was born to Sebastian and Rosy of Thrissur, Kerala. She was a teacher by profession and also the headmistress of a school until it was taken charge of by the Sisters of St. Ann.

Currently residing in Kerala, where she has been settled since the early 70s, she cares for her family and is a social worker. She is a fearless campaigner for women’s rights and hopes that someday society will truly treat women with the respect they deserve.

Annu was also a member and office bearer of a national political party for some years. However, she was happier spending time with her family rather than pursuing full-time politics.

She began writing at a young age, and her writings reflect her beliefs. Apart from her regular articles in leading newspapers and magazines, she owns a prized collection of poems and short stories.

She is also widely known as the author of the popular novel, Waltair Station – A Girl’s Journey.
