About the book
Shanthamaaya Sthalam in Kerala is nothing less than the Ironman of ayurvedic spas. Here patients have to undergo daily shots of ghee laced with cow’s urine, and being purged both by leeches and the world’s most powerful laxative. Anshu, a regular, is a firm believer in the powers of Ayurveda but on this visit she finds it harder to rebalance herself. For among the milieu of new patients is a familiar and unsettling one – her ex-husband. In the serene sanctuary of Shanthamaaya where food is rationed, sex forbidden, and emotions centered, Anshu finds herself awash with old memories – and she discovers that even as her body is being rejuvenated, her mind remains a wasteland.
