The Abandoned Daughter

Hyma Goparaju



It is the year of 1871. The first-ever census has commenced in the subcontinent of India. It throws up a puzzlingly statistic of young girls in a province. A newly appointed officer of British India and his upright Indian clerk set out to rectify the error of omission in the enumeration. They encounter a fiercely patriarchal and wily village head who is on a mission to thwart their investigation. Will she succeed in misdirecting their inquiry? Or, would her heinous doings, masked for long, emerge from graves?
