Why was Ketaki abducted and trafficked? Where were her father and mother? Was Ketaki ever able to meet her real parents? Why did she attempt the suicide? Was it destiny that brought her back to Kolkata or did The Almighty have something else in his holy mind? After all, Joys and Woes are always woven fine!! Joys and Woes are woven fine… is a very emotional story about a girl who was a mistake. The story will leave you in tears and you will feel heartbroken at the end. Arkaprava De has beautifully used his words to spread many social messages in his novel. Even after rejected by many publishers he did not lose hope. The story is very nicely written and all the characters are interconnected to each other in one way or another. Loved it!
