The Family from Padma Vilas

By Padmini B. Sankar

Biography & memoir, Hybrid & other, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook

From a small village in South India to the august offices of South Block in New Delhi, this is the incredible journey made by three generations of a Tamil Brahmin family during the last century: a herbal healer, a doctor practicing against the backdrop of Gandhi and the Freedom movement, and a senior bureaucrat representing the aspirations of a young, newly-independent India. Chronicling a tumultuous era, "The Family from Padma Vilas" is a literary memoir which recaptures a past that is fast receding from our memories. An intensely human story that reads like the best generational sagas.

Padmini B. Sankar is a Dubai-based freelance writer and author who contributes regularly to local newspapers and magazines. "The Family from Padma Vilas" is her first book and first foray into non-fiction. When she is not writing, Padmini spends her time travelling between Dubai, Delhi, Chennai and New York or else spends time with her dogs.
