‘The Captive’ By Shrutidhora P Mohor

A storyteller’s narration bears uncanny resemblance with his professional life and as he gets interrogated and penalised by powers that be, he discovers himself to be as trapped as his captors are in the web of unreliable narratives.
The Captive is an unsettling tale of hegemonic discourses, entrenched normativity, and the rage of a misfit soul.
