Storizen Magazine - - What's Inside -

A story set in the calm be­fore a storm

- Mi­tali Mee­lan

The Ad­hikaris are a reg­u­lar, happy fam­ily – or so they will have you believe. But at the din­ner ta­ble, a si­lence hangs heavy over the three chil­dren, es­pe­cially Ari­hant and Ishan. Twenty-two-year-old Ari­hant pos­sesses a se­cret ta­lent and a shat­tered heart. He yearns for his muse and ex-girl­friend, only to sur­prise him­self when they fi­nally meet af­ter a long and dif­fi­cult time apart. If only Ishan could share some broth­erly ad­vice rather than sneak about, aloof and in­creas­ingly sus­pi­cious.

Ishan twenty-eight seems to have the job of his dreams – or at least, his par­ents’ dreams. But how long can he stay torn be­tween two worlds? How long be­fore some­one finds out about his evenings: about the place he goes to and the woman he sees. A novel set in the calm be­fore a storm – af­ter which noth­ing will be the same for this seem­ingly happy house­hold. In A Long Way From Home, the Ad­hikari broth­ers fol­low their dreams while re-dis­cov­er­ing their re­la­tion­ship with one an­other. Mi­tali Mee­lan weaves a con­tem­po­rary per­spec­tive of love while keep­ing true to the tra­di­tions of an In­dian mid­dle-class fam­ily.
