Dariyo Ek Tarasno-1
by Kajal Oza Vaidya
માનસશાસ્ત્રના પ્રશ્નો પર નવલકથાઓ ગુજરાતી ભાષામાં ઓછી લખાઈ છે. ‘પર્સનાલીટી ડિસઓર્ડર’ ઓછાવત્તા અંશે બધામાં હોય છે. ‘દરિયો એક તરસનો’ વિક્ષિપ્ત-વિખંડિત-વિખરાયેલાં વ્યક્તિત્વોની એક એવી જીગ્સો છે જેના કેટલાક ટુકડાઓ ખોવાઈ ગયા છે. આપણી ઇચ્છા અને સંબંધના સત્ય વચ્ચેની ખાલી જગ્યા એટલે ‘દરિયો એક તરસનો’.
