About the Book

Inspired by true events, this riveting narrative traces the lives of Safeena Malik, Deewan Bhat and Bilal Ahanagar, three childhood friends grow up in an atmosphere of peace amity Srinagar, Kashmir, until the night of 20 1990 changes it all.

While Deewan is forced to flee from his home, Safeena's mother becomes 'collateral damage and Bilal has to embrace a wretched life of poverty and fear. The place they called paradise becomes a battleground and their friendship struggles when fate forces them to choose sides against their will.

Twenty years later destiny brings them crossroads again, when they no longer what is right and what is wrong. While compassion and injustice have the power to transform lives, will the three friends now choose to become sinful criminals or pacifist saints?

The Tree with a Thousand Apples is a universal story of cultures, belongingness, revenge atonement. The stylised layered formal paced narration and suspenseful storytelling makes for a powerful, griping read.
