Description

About the book

One dark and stormy night, Dalpathado unexpectedly crosses paths with the narrator at Meenambakkam airport. The faceless, middle-aged man from Dalpathado's past is there mourning the unexpected death of his daughter in a plane crash. After they spend a dangerous night in each other's company, lashed by rain and reminiscence, neither man remains the same.Ghosts of Meenamkbakkam is a meditation on the violence that detonates human lives and the idea of love that endures all mayhem, even in death."
