About the Book
Young Bharat finds his life living in a small, far-flung town, in a community that fiercely holds on to all regressive ideas and beliefs, so far removed from what he imagines for himself.
Bharat dreams of becoming a man of some stature, and when a crisis in his life threatens his dream he flees to a big city, hoping that he could lean on some arm of the government and the country and realize his dream one day.
But what his life in the big city – through his adolescence to adulthood – teaches him is shockingly different from what he had imagined and hoped for.
At every stage in his life, he finds the very guardians of the country turn his nemeses, and throw hurdles his way and thwart his dream.
Then he faces the biggest hurdle of his life, Kansakumar, the Chief Minister of the state, who wrongs the love of his life and makes his whole world turn topsy-turvy. Can he take on this challenge?
