For reasons inexplicable, I’ve always found the Bengali word for twilight mellifluous, intriguing. It’s called ‘godhuli’. The love for the word is what caused me to name the book what I did. The stories are reflective. Some mystery, a few happy, a few sad. In short, a sum total of life. Why ‘twilight’ you may ask I’ve noticed it’s the time when thoughts take seed and thereafter becomes a story. The myriad colours in the sky are what depicts ‘life’ for me. The protagonists are women. Some may reflect me, my life. I’ll let you decide. In some, you may feel you’re reading about yourself. The stories which leave you searching for an answer, are perhaps left the way they have been left, for you to interpret.
