Niyati is young, curious and full of hopes and dreams. The process of growing up in a dysfunctional household, however, is proving hard. Her life is becoming like a jigsaw puzzle, the pieces of which never seem to come together. Her days are clouded by parental conflict, the hypocrisies of a philandering father, the seething silences of her mother and her own personal uncertainties. The presence of her cheeky neighbour Chandan riles her no end, while the sight of her sister Nisha warms her heart at once. Nisha, ten years her elder, is Niyati s touchstone for everything in life. Until here too a revelation jolts her into finally taking charge of her own life. Set in Delhi of the 1970s and the 80s, Broken Melodies is a deeply moving novel about the search for beauty in our lives.
