Sujoy Banerjee has been a man 'untouched by sin'. There was a time when his hands were dedicated to a life with paint, canvas and brush. But then, the same hands began to orchestrate one murder after another. Were these killings really necessary? And did Sujoy Banerjee commit sin through these acts? He took it upon himself to rid the world of 'filth'. To destroy darkness with a missionary zeal and the suaveness of a master craftsman. After all, was it a sin to kill in self-defence? In the course of time, Sujoy stands facing an unimaginable moment of life when his own flesh and blood - his daughter - breaks social norms and passionately desires him. How does he tide over that agonising chapter? Like the hero of a classical tragedy he lays bare his heart, his sinews and soul as the world around him crumbles to a sorry heap. In this soul- searching novel, Tilottama Majumder deftly traverses the various dim and dark alleyways of human psychology and analyses the existence and nonexistence of love and sin in a world of crime and lust.
