    FASTING, FEASTING by Anita Desai The main characters who struck me the most are Uma and her brother Arun; to them are dedicated the two parts of the novel. Personally I think they have a lot of things in common and I’m not only considering the fact that they belong to the same close-knit family: they are somehow subjected to a reality from which they both want to escape.

The mother "lay on the string bed on some old grey sheets"...
