The day Mayadevi turned sixty-eight, seventy or seventy-five (her date of birth was an ever-changing fact linked to her moods), she decided to go to London … One bright, warm morning, sometime in 1908, Anima decided to wash her hair on a Wednesday instead of the usual Monday. This ordinary everyday decision changed the course of her destiny … When Gita s husband disappeared one night quietly, leaving only a smudged one-line note saying he was renouncing the world to become a holy man, she too suddenly decided to break away … Eleven eccentric aunts, eleven delicious stories of waywardness, obduracy, adventure and rebellion by those from whom it s least expected women who ve been trained to conform. Bulbul Sharma s fictional aunts refuse to do so, and end up in situations that they handle with aplomb. They keep you guessing till you put the book down!
