Sushila is an affluent New Yorker of Indian descent disillusioned
with corporate America. She drops out of the rat race to find
herself but instead discovers her mother's hidden past as a
devotional Indian dancer who defied her family to pursue her
dreams. As Sushila uncovers the events of her mother's
extraordinary life, she comes to understand the indomitable spirit
propelling the woman who shaped her own character. What caused a
mother to mysteriously escape a prearranged marriage, defying her
duty to her parents? How did she become the first woman at
Princeton? Why does she so guardedly conceal her impressive
history? And is her daughter destined to follow in a mother's
rebellious footsteps? At once a celebration of mothers and
daughters and a tribute to the unacknowledged helpers who smooth
the paths of our lives, Ganesh spans decades, cultures and
continents, traversing the rise of Gandhi in India through
post-colonialist England into segregated 1950s America with
uncommon wit and inordinate sensitivity. fiction, Ganesh explores
the challenges faced by independent spirits breaking from the
rigidities of tradition and eloquently evokes the role of the
unseen hand in choreographing the dance of life.
