About the Book: Custody
A great family drama about a custody battle by Manju Kapur
Raman is a marketing executive with brilliant prospects at a multinational company; Shagun is his alluring wife. Along with their two adorable children-Arjun who looks just like her and Roohi who looks just like him-the couple seem to have the perfect life.
But when Raman's new boss-the older, urbane Ashok-enters the picture and Shagun decides her marriage is over, husband and wife become locked in a bitter battle over their children. While the children's custody is thrown into question, with them torn between homes, parents and countries, the childless Ishita is drawn to Raman and a chance at familial fulfilment.
Custody is a captivating story of love and loss. Gently satirical, it is told with quiet restraint, honesty and clear-sightedness, once again confirming Manju Kapur's reputation as the great chronicler of the modern Indian family.
