Following the Light Home (Lakshmi’s Story) Novella by Janaki Murali; Book cover; Bangalore
In this story, readers are taken through the lazy town of Nilambur & the old worldly neighbourhood of Basavanagudi. The central geometric motif is an abstract and modern symbol that references the traditional South Indian Kolam. The background artwork is a combination of a blackened ocean pattern - symbolic of the central character’s dark despair - and a vivid yet subtle display of leaves; the path she must take to follow the light home. The ebook is available online at amazon.com and www.janakimurali.com & the hard bound at Gangarams & Goobe bookstore.
