A feminist superhero epic, Shakti is a story packed with magic, darkness, pain, dreams, superpowers, laughter and light. Your Power. Our Rules. Amid a political climate of right-wing, Hindu nationalist leadership, three very different women in the city of Calcutta, India, find th...emselves gifted with magical powers that match their wildest dreams. There is just one catch- the gifts come with a Faustian price. With unforgettable heroines and at an irresistible pace, Shakti unfolds a world of as much courage as there is darkness, and a journey across a country in the throes of profound transformation, bringing to light the incredible secrets, longings, wounds and strengths of many human hearts. 'He revels in the kind of noir-ish realism which works brilliantly for a Murakami or an Auster, while sharing their predilection for the surreal . . . Since his dazzling debut, Chakraborti has embarked on one of the most interesting career trajectories seen in recent times.' - The Sunday Guardian, India. 'Chakraborti possesses the gift of good storytelling.' - The Telegraph, India.
