So here’s the thing about Krishna Udayasankar’s characters. They are not perfect; they are not knights in shining armours. They are not the goody-good stereotypical Adarsh people. Most importantly, they are neither stain-free nor flawless. And that, my friend, makes her characters relatable. They are so engaging that the readers find themselves stepping into the characters’ shoes more often than ever. Plot: Prithvi is a Saimha – a were-lion, who continually struggles to tame the beast within him and troubled by the demons of his past.
