A Bowlful of Butterflies

This is the heartwarming story of an inseparable threesome, Chandni, Amrit and Soma. The girls are an exciting bunch, but have a rather uneventful life in the sleepy town of Majhi Nagar. They are completely focused on their impending Class-XII boards, until Chandni’s handsome cousin Jogi comes to live with her family. His presence brings to the surface many hidden truths the girls must deal with, like Chandni’s attraction for her cousin, her jealousy when her best friend and cousin fall in love, and the fact that her eldest brother is gay. The story spans a period of four months, in which Chandni and her family deal with many complex modern day relationship issues. A Bowlful of Butterflies deals with serious issues but is written in a lighthearted vein. It is an engrossing tale dealing with the transition of Chandni and her friends from schoolgirls to womanhood.
