Author Pratima Kapur’s book Tapestry was launched on Saturday at Landmark by celebrity music composer Vishal Dadlani.
Tapestry is the story of four women in modern India, who were fortunate enough to have lived life on their own terms, and with the freedom to make choices for themselves – good, bad or indifferent. The story revolves around the experiences of each of these women and throws light on life in an army-based family.
The event saw a large audience turnout, who wanted to know more about the book. The author read out an excerpt, following which, she took questions from an enthusiastic audience. “Unlike traditional tapestry, which is textile art done with wool, the art on the book cover is done using images of people. Every person you meet has an impact on your life and defines who you are. That is what my book is about. It is an amalgamation of people and experiences,” Pratima said.
Vishal added an element of humour to the launch, with his witty remarks, and went on to read a paragraph from the book. He said “Tapestry is an amazing read. It is a non-pretentious take on life in the army. The book is a reflection of the author and all the observations are true to life. I hope everyone enjoys reading it.”
