A story set in the calm before a storm 

In A Long Way From Home the Adhikari brothers follow their dreams while re-discovering their relationship with one another. Mitali Meelan weaves a contemporary perspective of love while keeping true to the traditions of an Indian middle-class family.

About the book:

The Adhikaris are a regular, happy family – or so they will have you believe. But at the dinner table, a silence hangs heavy over the three children, especially Arihant and Ishan.

Twenty-two-year-old Arihant possesses a secret talent and a shattered heart. He yearns for his muse and ex-girlfriend, only to surprise himself when they finally meet after a long and difficult time apart. If only Ishan could share some brotherly advice rather than sneak about, aloof and increasingly suspicious.

Ishan twenty-eight, seems to have the job of his dreams – or at least, his parents’ dreams. But how long can he stay torn between two worlds? How long before someone finds out about his evenings: about the place he goes to and the woman he sees.

A novel set in the calm before a storm – after which nothing will be the same for this seemingly happy household.


Mitali Meelan works for Shemaroo Entertainment. Mitali is the author of Coffee and Ordinary Life and The Guest. She was first published by Ravinder Singh under the Black Ink imprint.
