While enjoying the new-found freedom and confidence, she completely immerses herself in her work and her new life. Till one fateful day when she finds herself embroiled in a passionate affair—with an online lover. And then everything falls apart!
Will she give it all up for the elusive mirage created by the stranger? What turn will her life take next?"

Vinita has exceptional writing skills, and a remarkable ability to capture how others speak and behave. These skills - among others - can be seen in her forthcoming novel, "31," which will be published by Rupa in 2016. I've read an early draft, and was mesmerised. Vinita also has other novels forthcoming, this time in Hindi. Readers are in for a huge cornucopia of literary treats.Pranay Gupte (Bestselling author, historian, biographer)
31 Miles has strong reverberations of the twin forces of the contemporary life in Indian cities - the scientific and the mythical. Mansa, the protagonist, bounces on the limits of both in her journey to discover her secrets. This is a very relatable story set in the magical world of a real Indian woman. It is an exhilarating movement from belief in the known to trust in the unknown.Imtiaz Ali (Director, Actor, Writer)
