The Future Is Mine
A girl embarks on a train journey to obliterate old memories which have destroyed her childhood; a young girl is transformed into a veritable Krishna to destroy a modern day Kansa; an unmarried surrogate mother readies herself to give birth to a child; a young civil servant stops believing in miracles when she is abducted and kept captive in the hills of Manipur; a young woman visits Munnar and discovers her family?s best kept secret in the hills. ?The Future is Mine? by Vandana Kumari Jena is an eclectic collection of stories, some humorous, some serious and yet others suspenseful. The underlying thread running across the stories is women, their resilience, their infinite compassion and indomitable courage. These stories are hard-hitting, yet soul- stirring and will strike an emotional chord with the reader. ?The Future is Mine? makes for compelling reading.
