About The Book

In a middle- class Calcutta neighborhood, the lives of four recently retired men take an unexpected turn when they stumble upon a crime. Will the unlikely detectives be able to catch the criminal? Or will they unravel something even more sinister? The protagonists grab this exciting opportunity to rise above their mundane existence. They defy the ordinary, stretch their boundaries and in the process discover something precious

Meanwhile, a lot is going on in the paara (neighbourhood) – a rather difficult match-making process for a wheatish complexioned daughter, rivalry between two neighboring clubs over Durga Puja, Squabbles between the outdated seniors and the younger members of the local club, attempts at an impossible romance by a road-side Romeo…
