Pyjamas are Forgiving will make you love, laugh and, cry.
19 September 2018
The book is narrated by a woman named, Anshu who is in her early 40’s (divorced) and is childless. To take a well-earned break, Anshu is in a Kerala Ayurvedic Shanthamaaya spa, where food is rationed, sex forbidden, and emotions cantered, whilst on her journey to remove 'Dosha,' Anshu is met with a familiar, yet a deeply unsettling sight- her philandering ex-husband, Jay, with his much younger wife, Shalini- who is quite opposite from her, both in physical and emotional term. Initially, Anshu is shocked and feels indignant, but slowly she is ready to balance and accept the sheer emotion of facing her ex-husband who left her for a younger looking woman.
Apart from the daily regime of drinking ghee, to performing the physical discomfort of Yoga poses, Anshu revisits the memory of her broken marriage in the ashram where she and her ex-husband were frequent visitors. As what the author has said in one of her interviews, the book ‘Pyjamas are Forgiving’ is reverse, a flip-book store where you start from the end where you have fallen out of love instead of the beginning. What would that look like?
