Eyebrows, by Kavita Bhanot

Episode 3 of 3

Jaya, her mother and her grandmother slowly come to terms with one another. Read by Lyndam Gregory, Deni Francis and Najma Khan.

Under the Skin is a celebration of the second ever South Asian Literature Festival, which is staged in London and across the United Kingdom.

The relationship between the English language, its literary tradition and writers from South Asia has become an exciting and enduring part of British literary life. The Festival celebrates writers from South Asia and British Asian writing, equally, reflecting the diversity of themes, subjects and literary forms that constitute South Asian writing in 2012.

Under the Skin features three stories by British Asian writers. Kavita Bhanot's Eyebrows introduces us to three generations of women seen through the eyes of Jaya on her weekend visits to her grandmother.

Lyndam Gregory, Deni Francis and Najma Khan are the readers.

Producer: David Roper
A Heavy Entertainment production for BBC Radio 4.
