THE GUILT IS ALIVE by HEMALATHA GNANASEKAR


An eldest daughter who failed to weigh the cost of pleasing her much-loved father . . .

An eldest son burdened with his father’s expectations . . .

A change in perspective wrought by a horrendous tsunami . . .

Ego, pride, anger, revenge, guilt . . .

This raw memoir of an impoverished Indian family explores the fateful decision to send the oldest son to Jamaica to work.

Short chapters with intriguing titles such as “The Temporary Wife,” “Disagreement Over Bikinis” and “The Nude Island” help the story flow.

“The author’s emotional narration of the family dynamics that materialized while they struggled to make ends meet and the heartache of her brother’s long separation from them was both touching and insightful,” says Florence Osmund, the American author of Regarding Anna and Nineteen Hundred Days. “This was an interesting story told from the heart.”
