The Onus of Ancestry
Destiny's Mandate
by Arpita Mogford

‘It was believed that Dwita was born out of the confluence of three rivers of ancestry: the Takshaka (the king of snakes mentioned in the Indian epic Mahabharata, from her maternal grandparents), the Surya and the Chandra (the sun and the moon dynasties, from her paternal grandparents). Dwita was told by her mother in no uncertain terms that she had to live by family traditions and expectations.
That is how life started for Dwita.’

The Onus of Ancestry: Destiny’s Mandate is about Dwita’s journey through life – her birth, special circumstances of her emergence, ancestry and heritage, and the people around her – those who loved her and those who did not, or could not, as destiny was not always on her side. She was pursued by her personal dreams, ancestral shadows, quiet aspirations and moral values, all of which denied her the irresponsibilities of youthful abandonment and fearless laughter.

The book is also about the demands of ancestral norms and values, ending in privilege of heritage, destiny and karma. It is a challenging and mesmerising novel, leading to impregnable depths of romance and adventure – a victory for human spirit.

The Onus of Ancestry: Destiny’s Mandate is a gripping novel, a fiction with historical links, that will be enjoyed by fans of both romance and adventure.
