Domestication of Munachi is the story of a woman who rebels against an arranged marriage and transits from her awareness of the familiar to the adventurous ways of the world. Her action exhumes long kept family feuds and secrets as she liberates herself from cultural hegemony and finds freedom in the same bag with treachery, deceit, and sex and money. The story throws light on the Diasporic economy of arranged marriages and betrothals, the angst for non-conformity and the rage between tradition and modernity.
