Alka Saraogi won the Sahitya Akademi Award in 2001 for her very first novel. Fourteen years later, she is out with her fifth novel—Jankidas Tejpal Mansion—set in Calcutta during the 1970s. In conversation with MARWAR, Saraogi talks about her protagonist’s need to protect his roots and identity, and her own desire to look for the extraordinary within the ordinary.
