Title: Twenty Three Summers (Amazon Kindle, January 2019; Ukiyoto
Publishers, January 2020)
Author: Shrutidhora P Mohor
Logline: The protagonist in this long story is a troubled soul, in love with a
person of the same sex but more crucially a very different personality. The
forever burning Kashmir question in India is the inevitable background to their
relationship and one seems to be as doomed as the other.
Pitch summary: Set against the backdrop of a conflict-ridden Kashmir valley
and spanning twenty three years of unfinished love and longing, pain and
sublimation, this is a story of refracted love between ambitious and competent
Sudarshan and quiet and tender Farooq, two human souls who bleed and cry
together but on two different notes. For tormented Sudarshan, love is about
being unambiguous in its proclamations, aggressively possessive; for helpless
Farooq, it is about stepping back, letting go, nurturing, caring, attending,
renouncing. The personal currents of a turbulent relationship and the political
dynamics of Kashmir cross-cut and fuse in this political love story.
