The Rabbit and the Squirrel by Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi

Category: Fiction
Publisher: Penguin Random House India

The Squirrel’s greatest joy is dancing in the forest with the Rabbit – her beloved friend and equal of heart. While the duo is inseparable, fate has other ideas: the Squirrel is married off to a wealthy boar and the Rabbit enlists in a monastery. Years later, an unexpected reunion finds them both transformed by personal defeats. And yet, to each other, they are unchanged, and their private world ─ where sorrow registered as rapture and wit concealed loss ─ is just how they had left it.
