What is your novella, Half a Home, about ?

"Half a Home" aspires to be "The Great NRI Novella" - a story about family relations vis-a-vis the diaspora before and after 1991 - when economic reforms revolutionized India both materially and socially. Rishi, the main character, is of an age where he is caught in between - remembering the India of old - and unable to deal with the new changes that slowly take hold. It's a story of nostalgia, naiveté and the heartbreak associated with losing one's "Imaginary Homeland". It's also a love story.
