Is closure important in life?

Among life’s endless oddities, regret has a special place. The ‘what ifs’ and ‘only ifs’ assail us right from childhood until the fag end of our lives. And closure is an elusive state that some of us receive, some of us construct, and still some of us never see it at all. When an aging actress re-examines her journey, a doting husband obsesses over the perfect gift, two lovers try to find privacy, a human statue
looks for worth, and an old couple find friendship by chance—they are all hoping for closure.

These men and women are so identifiable with their secret sorrows, open wounds, misplaced emotions and a niggling sense of regret that they spring into life, look in our eyes, and ask, ‘Haven’t we met sometime, somewhere?’

What do they do when the conflicts and contradictions of life overwhelm them? Do they accept their fate with resignation or fight it to finish?

After the Rain – Stories That Bind Us is a poignant collection of stories about these characters. It is an insight into the hidden strengths and weaknesses that decide the course of their life.
