Arijit is the Senior Sales Director in GenX Infotech. He gets an escort engaged to entertain a prospective client, Kris. Sparks fly when Kris meets Oindrila in a hotel. Who is Oindrila and what secrets is Oindrila hiding from the world?
Are we, the humans wandering around each other, really genuine? Are we real, in our intentions, actions, policies, and morals? Are we who we seem to be? Are we the manifestation of deception?
Masks is a short story that delves deeper into the psyche of human beings. It dissects our superficial layer to make us see through us. It makes us look beneath to fill ourselves with questions, guilt and perhaps, shame. Through the characters, the author points towards our inability to carry what we are with ease. It is this inability that compels us to wear a mask. We desire to satisfy our needs in the guise of a mask which could not be seen but tearing it apart would definitely bring us in light, naked!
The story has been developed really well. I loved how the plot was built up with an air of business ethics and takes a turn towards human values. The search for love forces Oindrilla to live a life reeking of lust and carnality. With the aid of a good language, the book turns out to be a hit on our heads bringing us to a point of contemplation and self-reflection.
MY RATING: 4/ 5
