A Place Called Delirium by Avaantika Kakkar
Meera walks along the esplanade outside the Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, planning her suicide. She enters the Hotel minutes before terrorists attack its premises. When she sneaked out of office on the morning of 26 th November 2008, she did not know that she would be forced to consider the answer to a most fundamental question: Is drowning the same as being shot at? In the shadow of the economic slowdown and the imminent Mumbai terror attacks, in the crowded streets of Mumbai, Meera stands alone, lost in a deadly battle against herself.
