About the Book and the Author :
 
'Caught in two winds' breathes fresh air in the oft told story of transitions. Author,Monika Pant, manages to give a clear insight into the complex emotions that compose the metamorphosis called life. She impresses with her ability to reach inside a teenager's mind and present every detail of the roller-coaster ride of emotions that goes on in it in its transition to adulthood and maturity. Sayoni's story unfolds in contemporary India,the juxtapositioning of her pride and vulnerability,her confidence and guilt captures the essence of contemporary Indian culture. Complex emotions summed up succinctly and beautifully in simple sentences like those found only in Tagore's work leave the reader basking in the warmth of good literature. It is these very sentences that leave the reader hungry for more. I wish the chapters were longer and I hope the author will give us more of her detailed descriptions in her next novel. Overall, I highly recommend this book to those who wish to explore the marriage of classic style with modern literature
