The Other End of the Corridor is a fiction book written by Sujata Rajpal. It deals primarily with domestic abuse and one woman’s journey through it.
Our Chennai Bloggers Club organized the book launch event for this book, ‘Sense and Sensibility’, held at Odyssey book shop, Adyar, Chennai. The book launch was hosted by the author Sujata Rajpal and Sharada Vijay, author of ‘Make it 2’. In the photo you can also see Bragadeesh Prasanna, an upcoming author himself, and the Co-admin of Chennai Bloggers Club.
There was a brief discussion about domestic abuse in Q&A format, between the two hosts. They spoke on various topics including what leads to domestic abuse and how people (women and men alike) can cope up with it. Then there was a Q&A session where both the panelists answered questions from the audience.
From the book blurb:
“When your dreams are tainted with lies and deceit, you have no other choice but to walk to the other end of the corridor.
Leela has nothing extraordinary about her except the dream to become famous. Her desires take wings when she gets married to a handsome boy from a respectable family in Delhi. But her dreams are shattered even before they have a chance to take flight.
She happens to meet two friends from a long forgotten past, which infuses hope and opens new avenues to realize her dormant aspirations. Leela delves into previously unexplored paths of deception and forbidden passions that only make her stronger.
In an attempt to rediscover herself, she falls in love with life and with herself but her life takes a sudden turn again…
No matter what, Leela will continue to chase her dreams.
Where does this journey take her?”
PS: Odyssey Adyar is a large and an awesome bookshop. I went to this shop for the first time, you all should go there sometime too… 🙂
