Description
About The Book

It’s September, 2002, One year after 9/11 and the us invasion of Afghanistan. A U.S. army medical technician is taken captive by Afghan rebels while on a recce mission, and thrown into an asylum with a dozen or so other inmates. Are they refugees from the war? Derelicts? Fugitives on the run? Men and women mad with grief and loss, or just exhausted by the repeated violation of their country?

This astonishingly powerful novel unfolds the tragedy of Afghanistan, as told by the captive narrator, in hauntingly beautiful prose. As the characters try to cope with their individual destinies in the asylum’s compound, the terrible madness of war is counterpointed with the poignancy of their lives and the narrator’s own peculiar predicament – the “victor” now a victim, his ambivalence a metaphor for everything Afghanistan symbolizes. In a stunning denouement the author makes clear that there is no winning this war, there is only a ravaged country and those who manage to survive its insanity.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
