What happens when a gung-ho-nothing-can-stop-me 21-year-old girl returns back to her country as a weary middle aged woman with a somewhat reluctant family in tow? How does she go about setting ghar-grahasti in a place she always thought as home, but which had unknowingly become alien to her? What happens to her picture-perfect idea of a close-knit family when she gets close enough to see the frayed edges? After years of following the corporate rat race in her pursuit of the American dream, can she deal with the challenges of being a housewife in a small Indian town? Can she slay the demons that have pursued her for life, now that she has more time on her hands? And finally, after years of touting India as home, how Indian is she really? This book captures fresh off-the-boat observations and insights of an Indian woman as she observes her country and her-self with the eyes of an adult. Back to Pavilion is loosely based on what the author, Poonam Mulherkar, and her family experienced as they started their journey of settling back in India.
