Summary

1967, Calcutta. Unnoticed by his family, Supratik has become dangerously involved in student unrest, agitation, extremist political activism. Compelled by an idealistic desire to change his life and the world around him; all he leaves behind is a note. His family begins unraveling as the society around it fractures. This is a moment of turbulence, of inevitable and unstoppable change: the chasm between the generations, and between those who have and those who have not, has never been wider.

Subjects India -- History -- 20th century -- Fiction.
