When Sunil Kakkar, Tim Benson’s partner in a thriving retail business, passes away it brings the handsome middle-aged Englishman into contact with his late partner’s younger wife, Sreelatha. Being something of a snob, with an attractive wife of his own, Benson had kept his dealings with his partner on a strictly business footing, finding Sunil’s wife –on the few social occasions where he had been forced to interact with her- uninteresting as well as unattractive.
However, when he goes to his former partner’s house with the intention of buying the wife out of the business, he comes under the influence of a strange tea, the young widow herself, and her disapproving and sadistic housekeeper, Abhaya. Now, seven months on -via the permission of a hypnotic command- he finds himself able to remember certain events of his life since the first taste of that “Strange tea”.
The same events explaining the destruction of his marriage of twenty-five-years and the gradual erosion of both will and self-respect that would ensure he became…
The servant of Sreelatha.
