About This Book

Semi-apes is a story celebrating life and death, homogeneity and diversity, belief and disbelief. It is told from Heera's perspective as she comments on the pursuits of people who surround her, and how they struggle with that against their own psychological make-up. Heera takes us to the darkest corners of Alif's life, the oppression and injustice that she endures; Khosrow uncle's experiences, and his struggle in finding meaning to life; and Layla aunty who is juggled between her psychiatrists and a disloyal husband. But Heera is not only an observer. Like others, she displays her own inconsistencies, her prejudices, and her misgivings. In the end, Semi-apes is about everybody's attempt to be unique and different, to strive to lead better lives, and in the process, by the working of an arbitrary law, succeed and lose at times, and lose and succeed at others.
