Sudnya Shroff, a Pune-based fashion designer, launched her debut novel, Unraveling, a story anchored around the time of the 2008 Mumbai attacks, on December 18. The novel is the story of Shalini, the protagonist, facing up to her life of self-deception and a meditation on the theory of how choice, as unselfish as it may seem, can cause collateral damage. Through her story, the author highlights how people are
victims of their own circumstances. The son of the protagonist, Aarush, is of the same age as the terrorists involved in the attacks. The author puts across the importance of the situations around us in molding our personality and behaviour. "I had watched a documentary on these attacks by Dan Reed, which was made out of the tapes in the Taj Hotel. I was shocked to see the age of these brainwashed terrorists who were ready to kill for some promises made to them," says Shroff. The book takes the reader through various shades of the life of Shalini, which includes her choices and struggles.
