As she talked of her rotting marriage and painful separation, Suma explored the typical Indian lack of understanding in society when a couple separates. Family and friends usually have two questions for the separating wife, whether her husband was abusive or was he unfaithful.
Most Indian society does not want to understand the loss of love and connection in marriage, so they judge as a culture. Moving from bench to bench in Goa, Suma’s lonely character tried to find closure.
Sushil’s character was drinking incessantly, just short of the tipping point, remembering the darkest time of his life. “What lures you the most always holds within it, a bit of terror,” said Sushil Rattan.
As always, Silences and Echoes was a well attended event, echoing KVP Entertainers’ deep-rooted commitment to bringing the best of South Asian culture to Metro Vancouver.
