THE CROOKED SHADOWS IN HEAVEN

Author Name: Babu Chathur | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

The Crooked Shadows in heaven is based on an actual incident, reported in Chathur’s local newspapers on 19th January 2005. It’s about Sindhu, a home nurse attached to Jayan family and who, under strange circumstances, was implicated in the murder of her beloved husband (‘Yetta’) and jailed. The author’s curiosity in this case was kindled by Unni, his friend and well-wisher, who happened to know her. This book is a culmination of a series of interviews with Sindhu, who is currently serving her life sentence in Kannur Jail. Another interesting element is the addition of short but crisp extracts from Sindhu’s personal diary, which was safely preserved by Sushma Chechi–Jayan’s wife.

The story speaks about how Sindhu, a highly religious, god-fearing, innocent and kindhearted yet adamant woman, was very attached to her lover-turned-husband. She was so blindly in love with him that, even years after his demise, she refused to believe that her ‘Yetta’ was unfaithful to her. The enthralling events of her life are captured in this rather long but interesting book, written in the first person-exactly how she would narrate the events of her 37 years long eventful life. This book is dedicated to Sindhu with the hope that someday, she will read it-her own life story.

Babu Chathur

Babu Chathur (pseudonym) is an expatriate UK resident of Indian (Madras) origin, now living in Chathur and locally called ‘Writer Babu.’ An economist in London, he found himself in Chathur* looking for his ancestral home and landed property which he bequeathed from an obscure uncle. Initially, he intended to dispose of all his properties and return back to the UK. However, he later changed his mind and stayed back in Chathur, to write his memoirs, when he fell in love with Geetha, his uncle’s adopted daughter. The love affair landed him in a huge scandal and he was forced to flee back to the UK, out of shame. Upon returning, he wrote about the bitter experiences he had with certain individuals from Chathur, who were part of the said scandal. This was published under the title Big Frogs of the Small Well of Chathur—by Authors Online. Around two and a half years later, the people of Chathur realized their folly and welcomed him back with open arms. Subsequent events and his unique experiences were recorded and published under the title Big Frogs of the Small Well of Chathur–Part 2 which was also published by Authors Online.
