People on our Roof

Author: Shefali Tripathi Mehta
Publisher: 

Award Category: Creative Writing in English (Fiction & Poetry)
About the Book: 

In a once-grand, now down-at-its-heels bungalow in a South Delhi colony lives Naina with her mother, sister, and the
stigma that madness ‘runs in the family’. When a woman’s face peeps in from the mists of her childhood memories, Naina
sets out in search of the truth behind her father’s disappearance. Then comes a call that begins to unspool the past.
People On Our Roof is a portrait of one woman’s undying commitment to her kin; her struggle with relationships and a
heart-wrenching story of indestructible love between two people.
A coming of age story, it also explores the world of people
whose minds are wired differently.
