The book Corridors of Time by Vinay Krishnan tracks the story of a sensitive young man who grows from carefree childhood to eventful manhood — one who stumbles before learning to stride through those dark and dense passages.
This non-fiction is set in Bengaluru, a city of paradoxes; of gardens and garbage heaps; of technology and traffic snarls; of friendly people and failing infrastructure; when bungalows had gardens and pavements were meant for pedestrians. This is a narrative of the human spirit.
Rohan, an idealistic young sports-lover, experiences rejection, dark dejection and isolation and hurtles down the path to self-destruction. Shyla, attractive and successful is everything his heart yearns for and his body desires, except, she is married!
Chandrika, simple and devoted fails to understand the man she loves. The Shuklas long for justice denied by the system. And Khalid fears nothing and no one… anymore.
