A River Sutra by Gita Mehta
Random House Group 1994

A Sutra is a thread or string, but also a literary form, in Gita Mehta’s hands a bright necklace flashing with the religions, philosophies and fables of India. The narrator, a retired bureaucrat, escapes the world to run a guesthouse on the bank of India’s holiest river. Many lives converge at this place of pilgrimage and the bureaucrat hears many tales - some ecstatic, some heartbreaking.
Gita Mehta was born in Delhi.
