“Manjima Misra masterfully crafts a novella that tugs at the heartstrings while offering a thought-provoking exploration of the challenges women face in modern society. It is a must-read for anyone seeking a gripping story of resilience, family, and the pursuit of one’s dreams amidst the trials of life. It is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and a reminder that, even in the most unexpected circumstances, one can find the courage to chart their own course.” ~ Jitendra Dixit, Award-winning Journalist and Author
“The Ocean Is Her Title by Manjima Misra is the closest that any Indo-Anglian author has come to the sensibility of Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. No one can miss its poignancy, thanks to the tragic sense subsumed in Poulomi, transfixed between poetry and pathology, struggling through a welter of feelings, incapacities, and anxieties to shore up her beleaguered existential coherence. Here the poetry of a fractured existence is sung as sincerely as may be expected only from one who has seen it all from within. As a result, the narration is distinguished by sincerity. The novella merits a read, perhaps more than a read, especially by those who regard the human condition with creeping anxiety as to where we are headed, what we are out to achieve, and at what cost.” ~ Valson Thampu, Former Principal, St Stephen’s College.
