Products / Colour Me Confounded: A Tale of Two Tales by Poulomi Sanyal
Previously featured in Indie Book Box - now available for individual purchase!
Author Poulomi Sanyal draws upon her own experiences as a woman in the modern professional world to tell the stories of two women struggling with finding balance in their lives. In the first of two stories, teenagers Rupa and Minerva think they will be friends forever. The two high school girls are virtually inseparable, despite their many differences. Years later, Rupa looks back on that relationship and the dramatic incident that ended their friendship. While she writes her memoir and travels the world, she comes to a realization about her connection with Minerva and the experiences they shared.
The second story centers on Ariana, a Canadian Iranian engineer. She is happy with her work in Toronto, but a friend’s surprise career move brings back old memories of a previous job in Montreal. She hated that job and felt isolated and unappreciated. There was one person, however, who made it worthwhile.
As both Ariana and Rupa look back on their pasts, they come to startling discoveries about their current lives. Will these insights lead the two to choose different paths—or just fill them with more regret?
