Towards the end of the 20th Century, the Indian sub-continent witnessed a period of transition. Peace and cordial relations gave way to mistrust, turbulence and disharmony, leaving life and love gasping for breath. The story is of two friends who grew up in Lucknow, a city of cultural harmony and romance, and then they moved out in pursuit of their respective vocations.
While they were still struggling to develop their careers, bilateral relations with the neighbouring country gave up all pretensions of friendship or cordiality and rapidly sank to a low abyss. As a result, one of the friends became a victim of indiscriminate action and the other lost his lady love due to the hostilities generated by bilateral differences intermixed with communal alienation.
How the survivors come to terms with their shattered lives, as depicted in the novel, is characteristic of the survival of mankind after catastrophes.
The narration incorporates the ethos of the city of Lucknpw and the scenic beauty of picturesque Goa.
