An intense but not angsty take on being caught up in a non accepting world
To be a lesbian is to be different. It s to be like the green rose amongst the red.
Growing in the posh confines of south Delhi, the beautiful and accomplished Charu is a coveted match. However, all the matchmaking seems to fail when no dream marriage with a foreign-posted groom seems to materialize much to the amazement of speculating, fat Punjabi aunties of her neighbourhood and of her middle-class Bengali parents. Only Charu knows the reason. A reason which till now she s hidden from everyone, even herself that she s a lesbian.
But one lesson in love from the lady in the neighbourhood, and Charu knows there is no turning back on the truth. Not even when she wishes things were different, for her parents sake.
