Translated by Jean Anderson 

Indian Tango is set in 2004 Delhi against a background of monsoon rains. It occurs during the general election that would see Sonia Gandhi briefly head a coalition government. A visiting writer becomes obsessed by Subhadra, a woman glimpsed on the street, and an unconventional relationship develops. This story explores the cost of pursuing passion and desire in a vibrant but deeply conservative society. It is a moving meditation on the limitations that convention has placed on women's lives, and the ways they overcome it.

The work of Ananda Devi is both tragic and poetic. Haunted by the issues of exclusion, of otherness, deviance and suffering, it denounces the stifling climate of a society...it stands against any form of rejection and offers a genuine commitment...for the recognition of otherness.

                                                                                   – Véronique Bragard

Indian Tango is a hymn to female sensuality, to individual freedom, to understanding and companionship between sexes, cultures, religions.

                                                                    – Livres Hebdo, Jean-Claude Perrier
