Lessons in Forgetting
Anita Nair
The story   unfolds through the telescopic eyes of Meera   , through whom we come to know of various others persons in the periphery of her life. It   is interesting that Meera , the successful corporate wife tries to cope with the desertation by her husband Giri . she encounters Kitcha who is trying to find the reason behind the   current predicament of his   beloved daughter , Smriti.

Meera   had always thought of herself as Heera   ....
The story is also about Kala chithi who   has bravely walked out of a mirage of a marriage to the shock of her parents ... presenting her long hair cut at her nape to her husband for keepsake. The rebellion in Kala chithi is way beyond her times , her ability to assert herself in the face of such opposition   wins our hearts.

Smriti is kitcha’s daughter   , a rebel who has   pricked her body at every conceivable place   , but a girl who   is ignorant of the conventions of Indian society . she   , is however , a reformer at heart , a fighter , and is bent on taking up   the cause of female infanticide in a remote village in Tamil Nadu , though she is aware of the dangers hidden within.   Perhaps she underestimated the   efficacy of the brute force   which she was setting   herself up against.
Jak or Kitcha  
In his childhood   he   faced the rejection of a father who decided to take up sanyas at the prime of his life , calling him and his mother a bandhanam.

The numerous sub-plots weaved into the story of meera blend seamlessly   .. and the story moves from Bangalore to minjikapuram to America with ease   allowing the reader a peep into the   lives of kitcha ,Nina, Vinnie, Kala ... and many more ..what is interesting is that the more i spend time reading the book the more the book grew into my consciousness and i found myself thinking about smriti , nina   Meera’s disenchantment , smriti’s stubbornness, Kala thai’s rebellion ...
