After Kunal’s mother dies, he is sent off to a boarding school in the hills. Till he has a hostel room, he stays with Tara, his father’s cousin, who teaches a special music programme in the school.
Teaching music helped Tara after her best friend died—that, and perhaps the company of the enigmatic figure known as Death, whom she sees everywhere.
Tara and Kunal must try to live together, their lives entwined by their separate losses—which neither is comfortable talking about.
This is a tale of love and loss, of the healing and illuminating power of friendship, art and music.

Nandita is a comic-book artist and a musician. She loves to daydream, eat gummy bears, play music and draw. She likes to have conversations with animals and children (in that order) more than adults. She has had many great adventures in life, which she doesn't like to disclose because some things should just remain that way. The Piano, her first book, received wide critical acclaim.
