The book paints a rather poignant picture of the impermanence of human lives as a terrorist attack claims several lives in a Delhi market. Carried out by Kashmiri terrorists, the tale follows the Khurana family as they come to terms with the loss of both their sons in the attack while another young boy, as a result of this attack takes up the radical line. A thought provoking book and one of the finalists for the booker prize but what makes this book stand out is that it mirrors real life terrorist attacks in Delhi. The book makes you wonder at how everyone is able to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives and move on
