Dandekar is a routine bound government clerk who is able to provide his family with a confortable life. But his ordered existence is thrown off course when, one day, he comes home from work to find his wife, Sarojini, missing. On her return she gives him an excuse for her disappearance, which he realizes, is a lie, further rousing his suspicions. Doubt and mistrust plague him and he puts his career in the jeopardy when he begins to trail Sarojini in the hope that he might find her with another man. But when he stumbles across the truth he gets more than he bargained for. In A Silence of Desire Kamal Markandaya explores the tension between the East and the West- between superstition and science, faith and reason, tradition and progress- in a profound manner. vi+186 Yr. of Pub.2009 Paper Back English
