About the Book

Talkatori is a story brimming with rich folklore, based on a rural region in the north-eastern part of Uttar Pradesh in India.

The tale narrates the extramarital relationship between Ramnaman and Phoolwati. The couple shares a profound connection based on the fertile foundation of love, devoid of any greed or materialism.

It holds that a woman’s sense of entitlement over her body is reasonable. Phoolwati preserves her calm and composure throughout and discerns individual aspirations in the social context.

Talkatori describes a new-age sacred companionship embodying selfless love, a sense of responsibility, and absolute devotion to each other. The small and subtle changes that take place in villages, whether at the social level, in terms of political ideologies or personal relationships are realistically portrayed.
