The Motorcycle

A Novella by


The Motorcycle by Shobhaa De

Litizen Shorts by

Pesi a quintessential Parsi bachelor boy falls blindly for Mohini and leaves the community scandalised. None more than his 'Mama' - for Mohini is not only half his age, but also a 'hundred percent Hindu'. She feels the relation will never work out for they're as different from each other as a vintage Harley Davidson (which Pesi proudly owns) is from a bright red colored scooty (Mohini's ride of choice). 'Mama' is a staunch Zoroastrian, who fears as much for the future of their fast dwindling community, as for the company her overgrown son keeps. In this drama, Shobhaa De has juxtaposed the two communities and their cultures in a satirical way, as Pesi goes around convincing Mohini, his Mama, and finally himself that the marriage will work. But will it?
