Sneha Mathan voices the first-person narration of Shalini, who experiences a political and emotional awakening as she unravels the mystery of her mother. She journeys from her comfortable Bangalore home to unfamiliar Kashmir to find the man who can show her her mother in a new light. Initially, Mathan's voice sounds too grave to fit Shalini's disconnected description of herself. However, this seriousness reveals its purpose as Shalini is drawn into the secrets of the man's family and grows in her understanding of their world and her own. The richness of Mathan's voice gives the sinuous story weight. She enlivens each character's part with subtle inflections that reflect a range of speech ranging from British English to Hindi accents.
