About the Book

Anupam, a middle-aged professor with a meagre income, is taking a vacation with his family in a little-known mining town where his student has arranged for a stay. An unexpected meeting with his childhood love interest, Anjali, at the local farmers market rekindles his passion. This chance encounter turns their lives upside down, mainly because things have changed greatly in twenty years. They are now able to meet and speak freely to each other and realise that their love has remained constant. The families come together and Anupam’s teenage son falls for Anjali’s daughter instantly. It looks as though history is about to repeat itself...

But is life all that simple? How deep and dependable is unspoken and unfulfilled love? Does physical proximity necessarily bring one closer? Do values and outlooks change when one considers one’s children? What is love’s ultimate goal? These are some of the questions the readers find themselves asking as the novel explores the myriad shades of love.
