\ i-kl-zhən \ the act of emerging from the pupal case or hatching from the egg. An obedient daughter. A dutiful wife. An affectionate daughter-in-law. A kind woman. Somewhere whilst playing the many roles assigned to her, Madhuri Shukla née Mishra had lost herself and relinquished the dreams she had seen growing up in an idyllic town near the Uttar Pradesh-Delhi Border. Her world comes crashing down around her when she learns she suffers from sexually transmitted diseases which her husband had contracted during his dalliances. Instead of sympathizing with her, her loved ones, to whom she had devoted every moment of her life, cast aspersions on her integrity and declare her as the culprit. Every time she ticked a box decided by those around her to assess her worth, she had lost a piece of her. But she had no qualms. The building blocks of a splendid future, or so she had thought they were. But when those blocks fall apart and those who had taken turns to define her identity abandon her, will Madhuri find her true self she had left behind or will she resign to the unmerciful fate?
