Bookmarks | The Waiting by Dipavali Sen

  • The book “The Waiting” by Dipavali Sen is a mystery that spans Jurassic and modern times.


  • Beginning with a fossilized egg, the novel takes up the live issue of bullying or ragging and connects it with mythology, magic, historical research, scientific experiment, contemporary attitudes, and mystical practices.


  • School children Anit, Bimal, Chandan, and Deeksha (The ABCD) interact with the elderly and the young around them and find out that over-strict parenting and schooling can disturb psychology and persistent bantering can lead to violent consequences. Like an egg waiting too long to crack and burst out with the force within.
