Perfect Eight tells a story that travels from Lahore to Kanpur to an Assamese cantonment to Patiala to Ambrosa to Bangalore, through floods and fires and communal riots proving that what began with Partition continues to play itself out decades after Indias soul and its people were divided.

The protagonist - who has learnt from her mother to smell grief before it struck lives out her own history, carrying with her a part of her mothers partitioned spirit and her fathers indestructible love for life. As she grows up, the one constant in her existence is the sanctuary of the beautiful tea estate of Annaville, her beloved Anna aunty and Samir.

Beautiful, unattainable Samir, who is always just an arm`s length away. The country is meanwhile besieged by fresh separatist movements. Against this backdrop and with the demolition of the Babri Masjid, her own story reaches a turning point as well, when her love for the aristocratic tea planter reaches its just conclusion. And Perfect Eight, a road in Ambrosa, twists on like a never-ending story about the cultural skeins that outlast violence, and our enduring connections with people long dead and memories that outlast death and destruction.
