About the Book

17 Tomatoes is a series of lined stories that revolve around two Sikh boys coming of age in an Indian Army Camp in Kashmir. Each story takes a minor character from the previous tale and builds a new tale, weaving a collective portrait of the border community. In addition to the boys, Adi ( A student of garden) and Arjun (a budding chemist), We meet a boatman’s daughter, a celebrity crickets umpire and Parachute Aunty. From modern missiles to cricket matches, from religious miracles to the sumptuous gardens of Shalimar and Nishant, Singh treats beauty, politics, and religion in a gentle and humane manner.
