The Other End of the Corridor very subtly brings out a lot about the true condition of a Mangalik girl, and women in general not in some hinterland but at the heart of our country, Delhi. Leela, a Mangalik girl from Patiala is raped by her husband and also his brother-in-law and the reaction of her mother-in-law is, "chalta hai". She's a victim of rampant physical violence by her husband. She's despised at her home too, first because she's a girl and more because she's a Mangalik. Still she has always had a dream which she never allows to die.
The overall story may be cliched - a small town girl, ignored by parents and oppressed by in-laws, never cowers down and finally fulfills her dream, all with dollops of exciting twists and turns, illicit love and passion, sex and glamour. It has become a favorite subject for Bollywood too and who can forget Queen? But where the novel stands aside is the subdued narration of many things which are actually gory and grotesque. The author Sujata never appears preachy or "Nari Shakti Jagaran Morcha" type which most writers of this type of stories tend to become. Her writing is crisp, brief and still evoking and compassionate.
Another Punjabi-girl-weds-a-Tamil-boy, but no Punjabi excesses which has been in overdose in Bollywood lately and neither any South Indian cliches.
The author has managed to get me glued to the book for a few hours and finish it with a smile on my face! At times, I would talk to the book and tell 'Leela' what is the next step she should take.
