Aditi Sridhar is trying to establish herself as a newspaper reporter in Bangalore while deftly evading her
mother’s matchmaking schemes. On her first major assignment, she goes to interview Purnima, the once
celebrated singer turned actress of the 1960s. Purnima’s sprawling bungalow in upscale Malleswaram is
vacant. No one knows her whereabouts nor cares about a woman who had the temerity once to elope with a
married man. Aditi resurrects the forgotten star in her feature article and is at once warned off by an unknown
caller. Intrigued and defiant, the feisty girl ropes in her friend Reshmi, a photographer, to help her track the
missing woman. Her detractors become bolder and more violent. To stop them and to save herself, she must
find Purnima quickly, dead or alive.
Join veteran journalist Ammu Joseph and the author in a freewheeling discussion revolving around Tracking
Purnima, crime and the city.
