Autumn Raga

by Jaskiran Chopra

Autumn Raga

Attempting to put the unsavory experiences of her life behind her, Sunaina returns to the Doon valley. But the once idyllic valley is now a bustling metropolis, its old world charm eroded by the harsh realities of modern day life. Drawing upon the constancy of her childhood friend Tanuja, she begins her journey inwards, following the light and shade of the many hued classical music ragas.
Delicately and sensitively, Jaskiran Chopra guides her protagonist in her search for inner strength as she accepts both the beauty and the pain of her past and one day at a time, begins to build a future, symbolized by her daughter, Roop. Ultimately, Autumn Raga is not only a wistful sigh for the past, with its warm and comfortable shadows, but a powerful argument for the hope of
a tomorrow.
