We are often so appalled by the acts of terrorism happening around the globe we don’t delve deeply into the minds of the terrorists? What purpose are they working toward? What outcome do they expect? What events led up to their becoming terrorists? In this novel the terrorists are not radicalized islamists but political activists They have tried peaceful demonstrations without successThe story sets out in Dehli with the Kurana boys both Hindu and their Muslim friend Mansoor at the market when a small bomb goes off The Kurana boys are dead however Mansoor survives with an injury only to his arm He walks off not with m

The book is an interesting examination of how terrorism affects the victims and by proxy those closely associated with them or the crime When a small bomb explodes in a marketplace in India two boys are killed and their friend is injured The aftermath dissects the various ways the survivors cope The paths taken by the families involve
