Colours In The Spectrum

Jayant Swamy





Aristocratic parents, academic brilliance, shouldering romance with the prettiest girl on campus, a God-given gift that enables him to perceive people with an aura of color -- growing up in the garden city of Bangalore in the sedate seventies, teenager Karan has everything going for him. At thirty-five, swept away by the unforgiving culture of Los Angeles, Karan's life is in shambles.

The women he loved have deceived him; Dolly, the child he parented is taken away; his God-given gift is gone. Karan is penitent he once humiliated Danny, a friend who wanted to be much more. Seeking atonement, Karan returns to Bangalore, the burgeoning silicon megalopolis of the post-liberalization nineties. Living in the ancestral house, haunted by memories of the debacle death of his parents, he faces a new fear-- of being afflicted by promiscuous Lila's unfulfilled wanderlust.

Karan reconnects with Arjun, Aarti, and Indus, rekindling the flames of friendship and love, trust and betrayal, and hope and despair. When tracing the whereabouts of Danny leads to a startling discovery, Karan must confront the truth through a complex interplay of agony, forgiveness and grief. Can Karan redeem himself? Does the love he always chased find him?
