In an inordinately turbulent time, two lovers succumb to the dogmas of religious and cultural prejudices, and eventually separate. Years later, languishing for the unrequited love, they weigh their decision and reconsider. To bring closure, a meeting is scheduled on 26 November 2008 at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel- Mumbai, oblivious of the deadly terror that was to strike the city on the same evening. Caught in between merciless terrorists and years of suppressed anguish, will they survive and get a final chance to reunite?
This is a fast paced romantic thriller in the backdrop of a critical and turbulent period of the post-independence history of India that axed the peaceful co-existence of Hindus and Muslims and set the political stage for the next two decades. The book focuses on the ignorance, prejudices, mutual distrust and yet a borderline co-existence between religious communities, politely and optimistically termed as- ‘harmony’. It raises important issues that stay long after you have finished reading the book.
