    Story
    (255)

    Debut novelist Shilpi Somaya Gowda pens this compelling tale about two families, worlds apart, linked by one Indian child. After giving birth to a girl for a second time, impoverished Kavita must give her up to an orphanage. The baby, named Asha, is adopted by an American doctor and raised in California. But once grown, Asha decides to return to India.

    What made the experience of listening to Secret Daughter the most enjoyable?

    The story


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story of the Indian diaspora.


    What didn’t you like about Soneela Nankani’s performance?

    Below par. Being an Indian she mispronounces Indian words. An insult to Indian listeners.
