Summary of the Book


The tale begins on a summer of 1947 when the fate of millions is forced to be changed by the Partition of a nation. However, in the Sikhs- and Muslims-populated Mano Majra village, that is located near the Indo-Pak border, the struggle of life is expected to remain the same. Things take a dramatic turn when a local money-lender is killed, the local gangster Juggut Singh is accused, and a train arrives with dead bodies of Sikhs. The village becomes a battleground, and it is on Juggut Singh to bring back peace while redeeming himself.
