Life After MH370 : Journeying Through a Void Paperback
by KS Narendran
There are at least 239 stories waiting to be told at length - those of the families of 239passengers of MH370, how their lives took a turn on March 8th 2014 when MH370disappeared. This is the story of one person, Naren, who lost his wife, Chandrika on that flight. The probability of survivors diminished with each passing day.
As the months went by,Naren remained pre-occupied, wrestling over what to believe.
Some friends arguedinsistently against doomsday conclusions and spoke of their dreams as the basis tokeep up hope.
Many others, including Naren's daughter, preferred silence overpredictions.
The one argument against which there was no counter was: Where is theevidence?
Where is the debris? Where are the passengers?Life After MH370 documents Naren's experience with loss, grief, trauma and sorrow. The struggle with `ambiguous loss' morphs into a ceaseless search, for the scent of acover-up, for the truth, for that explanation that satisfies and helps one move on.
A lossthat meant critically resizing shared dreams, reconfiguring relationships and attemptingto find a purpose that anchor him in the present. There is the hint of a promise in KS Narendran's story - of existential truths about livingand dying that might help anyone who comes upon this book.
