When Bhima swung her hips gracefully as she walked, every male within a hundred yards would turn his head to stare. Bubbling with vitality, her eyes brilliant and her skin flushed, the men couldn’t help but be jealous of Madhu who had managed to get a wife as bewitching as Bhima.

Just as the men were jealous of Madhu, the women were jealous of Bhima, for none of their husbands was as generous, as loving as Madhu. In fact, the day that Madhu had got her those silver anklets, she’d proudly shown all the women, and that was a day they’d still not forgotten. The gentle music of the anklets that sounded whenever Bhima walked would never let them forget.

However, things are almost never as they seem. And as Bhima would soon find out, there are consequences to everything, even seemingly harmless actions. A story that is as much about human behaviour as it is about relationships, ‘The Silver Anklets’ is unexpectedly brilliant and typical Nergis Dalal.
