Short stories

Diamonds are not forever,' eulogized a diamantaire on the sudden departure of the Tobi family of Surat from the diamond business. The Tobi family, among the first Baghdadi Jews to settle in the western shore of India, had successfully carved out a niche in the highly competitive diamond industry... achieving greater height of success when the mantle of the business was taken over by Hannah Tobi, though she was not from a business clan - daughter of a rabbi of Cochin synagogue. The road to her success was but not scripted by her alone; a secret three-member alliance known to the members as 'liaison' worked in her favour from behind. Before her death, Hannah bequeathed her son Ezekiel Tobi with a last wish: to find out her godfather, the man behind the secret liaison. Ezekiel encountered with various odds and dangers in his endeavour to fulfill his mother's last wish... to the extent of orchestrating a plan to kidnap an underworld don of Mumbai. His mission could be successful, or eventually end up in a great disappointment.
