THE SECRET OF MORE by TEJASWINI APTE-RAHM
INTO THE BEATING HEART OF BOMBAY, a city that spins cotton into gold, young Tatya arrives to make a living in the city’s famed textile market. His bride Radha, raises the family in the traditional yet rapidly modernising city. Set against the backdrop of bustling colonial Bombay, the novel is about relentless ambition, steadfast love, and grim betrayal, as Tatya strives to unlock the secret of more - of having more and being more. The story travels from the clatter of textile mills to the glamour of the silent film industry, from the crowded chawls of Girgaon to the luxury of sea-facing mansions; one man and his family learn that in the city of Bombay you can fly - but if you fall, it is a long way down.
Writer, journalist and environmental researcher, Tejaswini Apte-Rahm will join us today to discuss her first novel – ‘The Secret of More’.
