Harp by Nidhi Dalmia
Nidhi Dalmia (Philosophy, Politics and Economics (Hons) 1972) has written a romanic novel Harp
Set in the context of the zeitgeist and idealism of the late sixties, Harp is about love, longing and coming of age.
The three main protagonists - a young man travelling in a Europe-less-travelled including the Iron Curtain, a young woman who has a calling to music, and another young woman who has loved and lost once - provide the frame of this narrative about journeys we make across countries, even as we embark on a private quest within to know ourselves better, and to seek what it is we really want from life. Moving through India, Europe and USA, Harp follows the lives of these three young people even as they engage with the cultural, sexual, student revolutions, and the music of the sixties
