“They say you can always see a faint light at the end of
the tunnel. All you need to do is follow the light and you
will be out of darkness. The corridor, I was walking down
didn’t have a trace of illumination. I couldn’t see the other
end. But I kept moving and now, when I have reached the
other end, I realize that more than the light, you need the
determination to keep moving, keep struggling for your
dreams, for your existence, for your survival.”
I said give me a break...then do you have time for yourself...i remember you use to write poems in college days...what happened to that....and then the same kind of excuse...
This is not my only friend's story...this is a story of every women next door...who gives their entire life to their children, husbands and family. At times they give up their careers, passion, dreams what not the list is long and by end of their life they are the ones who are standing empty hands....
But the hope is still there because, there always, 'The Other End Of the Corridor'. I am proud and glad to say, there are some women who are not sacrificing their lives for family and others...along with taking care of family and kids they are taking care of themselves and their dreams & passions. They are making work and home life balance and giving their 100% to both.
' The Other End of the Corridor' by Sujata Rajpal, tells a story of a very simple and common woman Leela, who comes from a middle class family. Ordinary looking girl with simple dreams from married life. With hidden passion for radio jockey....but the life has planned something else for her...there comes a point when she breaks the patterns and changes the direction of her life....
The author has woven the story very beautifully and told the untold story of every women next door. Inspiration for many women....
Yes, the story is common and we hear a lot about such stories even today... While we are becoming a liberating society and have people like Priya and Harleen, there still is a Leela living in our neighbourhood !! While the world progresses and we mortals tend to change our mindsets to being modern, people like Vishal and his Maa still prevail... There are parents who still feel girls to be a taboo and there are marriages which are done on the pretext of lies, deciet, breaching the trust and ruining lives for the brides and her families... Such is the value system of our society, that we still tend to look for every possible solution to keep the marriage relationship going, no matter how hard the days become with your marital partner...
Sujata weaved Leela's life very well... She had some great characters to support her story line, portrayed both the extremities of our society - the narrow minded culture to an ultra modern society... The story is crafted very well, giving a good background to Leela's pre-marital life, her dreams, aspirations and 'her never to be perfect' marriage...It fits in some vicious characters like her brother -in-law , mother-in-law , and also the fantasies to have the prince charming in one's life... Narrated in a simple language, I believe it to be the author's intent to have her book available for all age groups to read...
Am glad that the Other side of the Corridor had sunshine for Leela, making her achieve what she wished for, successful Career, Motherhood, recognition within the society and the respect from her family...
Pls keep on writing many more books, Sujata...
