‘Celebrating India – Love Without Borders’ is an Anthology of Prose & Poetry, published by Nivasini Publishers in January 2015.
Anita Desai’s short story ‘Epileptic’ has been featured in this anthology that brings together budding and noted writers across different states of India.
‘Epileptic’ is the story of two young people from varying religious backgrounds who come together breaking through the barriers of social parameters. The author narrates the tale of Adwita and Jared from the time they first meet as adolescents, fall in love, separate and meet again as young adults. The story is unusual as it does not reflect on religious differences but highlights other social pressures that hinder acceptance of love.
The proceeds from the sale of books have been donated to Glow Tide, an organisation that feeds healthy food to the orphans.
The book is available on Amazon.in:
