Caring for his adult ward, who has broken her leg, middle-aged history professor Shiv Murthy struggles with his feelings for the young woman, a situation that is complicated when one of his lessons on medieval India is challenged by religious extremists.

Blackwell North Amer
Shiv Murthy, a meek middle-aged professor of history in New Delhi, has become caretaker to a friend's passionate and outspoken daughter. Meena, recuperating from a broken leg, moves into Shiv's home, even though they barely know each other and even though his wife is away in the States. Over the next six weeks, the life to which Shiv has grown accustomed is thrown into perilous turmoil. As he struggles in his dealings with the intelligent, self-possessed, sexually aware young woman, a class Shiv teaches in his medieval Indian history course is challenged by a group of religious extremists. Unexpectedly caught up in the whirling of politics, Shiv, even more unexpectedly, now takes a stand.
