The Mobile Phone is a story of connecting to the child within us. The story is set in Delhi and deals with the lives of Rohit, a tutor, and Prabhu, a child he teaches in the city. The author uses 'the paper mobile phone' as a symbol to connect with someone who is absent; someone we seek or someone who could hold us in our helplessness. The novel makes an attempt to understand death and deal with mourning. It looks at child's play and fantasy life. It also looks at adults who are evolving in relationship.
