Set in Chandigarh, India, the stories of different voices from diverse places and characters draw intricate patterns of relationships from the pre-independence to present day. The events take place in India, Pakistan, San Francisco, Boston and Edinburgh.
This is a wonderful tale of Aakriti, a daring writer, who keeps on fulminating against the unjust and seeks for a positive change in the society. Raghu convinces Aakriti to put aside her disappointments and be a literary voice of her bereaved lover, Anees, and her best friend, Nezat. Unaware of the bizarre consequences, Aakriti exposed the traitors through her short stories. Her book attracts divergent opinions – the young author has to flee India to escape the wrath of some people. At last, despite a possible life threat, she seems determined to take part in the Delhi Literature Festival.
