CORRIDOR OF QUEENS
Days revolve around college applications, school projects, and Halloween parties like any teenager. As temple trips conflict with her daughters parties, Mrs. Mehtas worship takes longer than usual, and Kittys diet is thrown off, things get too much for her during the holidays. Compelled to break away from the chaos, Kitty chances upon a museum exhibition of portraits of stellar women from Indian mythology, called Corridor of Queens. In spite of herself, she feels drawn to the exhibit and discovers an entire world that is charming as it is dangerousfoggy islands where babies grow to adulthood in days; mothers taking on many creatures forms to keep an eye on their daughters; fisher girls bartering in magic; supernatural beings who can lend you their gender; and women forcing heavenly rivers to end earthly famines.Follow her as she navigates her world, trying to find herself, with the wisdom of the ages from tales that come alive at the Corridor of Queens.SHEFALI SHAH CHOKSI is Coordinator of the Writing Centre at Broward College, North Campus Academic Success Centre, in Florida.
