Blue Eyes

by Hema Macherla

This is the story of a young widowed Indian girl's escape from the fate of 'Suttee' and her search for independence after fleeing from her family. Told in basic language with an easy literary style, it is set in the 1920s against the background struggle for Indian independence. Will appeal to readers looking for a pleasant and undemanding read with a happy ending.

Remembering, Anjali flinched. At the age of eighteen branded a barren women, her life was about to end. Leaning back against the wall, she tried to brace herself for the inevitable. Resting her head on to her knees, she closed her eyes and tried to block out all feelings and pain. Where would her spirit go once her body was burned? To heaven or hell, should either exist?
