The Plot:

Raj Shekhar Subramanian and Manasi are the perfect couple, in tandem with each other in all areas of life. Raj Shekar has big dreams and Manasi works towards making them come true. Dance is what brought them together and their passion for it is the glue that keeps them united.

One of Raj Shekhar’s wishes is to open a Dance Academy in New York. It seems to be finally coming true, thanks to Vatsala Pandit who decides to help him make this dream come true and sets the wheels in motion.

There is a catch though.

Vatsala dreams of learning dance from Raj Shekhar. She also wants Raj Shekhar as badly as he wants this Academy.

One man. Two women. One dream.

What will Raj Shekhar, Manasi and Vatsala do? Will this be the dance of new passion for one and a swan song for another?

My Thoughts:

A man and two women. Passion, desire and longing. You’d think these would make for a clichéd love story, right? Wrong.

The  artistic and aesthetically appealing cover should give you an indication of how different this book would be.

A refreshing storyline, with dance making a strong base for it. Well etched characters and moral dilemmas that you could find yourself resonating with.

Varied shades of human behaviour, and love, that set you thinking and questioning. The imagery her words create in the parts about dance had me watching the dance on stage as an audience. This book will surprise you at every turn. As just when you think things are going to go a certain way Koral will assure they won’t.

Rasia – The Dance of Desire by Koral Dasgupta is one of the finest books I have read in recent times. Koral’s writing is confident, intelligent and exquisite. I was sorry to see this book end. Click To Tweet
