What happens when the political drama that unfolds in the country’s corridors of power, spills over into the complicated personal bond that three young Indian politicians, from three different political parties, share?
Aditya Samar Singh, like the Congress party he belongs to, tends to be aristocratic even as he roots for inclusiveness; Brajesh Ranjan, like his party the BJP, projects an overtly nationalist, swears by the underpowered.
In this page turning book, set against the backdrop of India’s nuclear deal, amidst increasingly frequent and ever-more vicious terror strikes, Tuhin A. Sinha writers a compelling story about conflicting ideologies and passions that comes to a head with the Mumbai attacks in 2008; forcing his young protagonists to confront that dark space between party loyalty and personal belief.
