Annotation

Much of the story seems to be about the relationships within and Indian family. Then, it is gradually revealed that some of the people have been “enhanced” through an implant that counters negative emotions. From the viewpoint of the protagonist, the results are entirely positive, but what happens within the story suggests the opposite.
