Qabar by KR Meera
As a temple is slated to rise in the site of Babri Masjid, voices rise from a qabar in a small town in Kerala. A judge presiding over the property dispute is hypnotised. Is the petitioner the jinn-summoning sorcerer he is reputed to be? Or is she having a mental breakdown from loneliness? Why else would the spectre of a long-forgotten ancestor and his handmaidens appear before her? How is she supposed to make a ruling when her self is profoundly divided? A hypnotic novella from KR Meera full of the dizzying knowledge that verdicts are not solutions.
