English translation of a moving tale of affection and unfulfilled love in Gurdial Singh's Punjabi novel Marhi Da Deeva by Ajmer S Rode.

Long ago, Dharam Singh's father had brought Thola to his village. He treated him as his own brother and had even gifted four bighas of land to him. After Thola's death, Dharam Singh took sole responsibility of his son Jagsir and his mother Nandi.

Over the years, however, things changed. Dharam Singh's son Bhanta took no time to grab back the land gifted by his grandfather. The tragedy of Jagsir is not confined to this only. Through his long years of loneliness, it is opium which somewhat alleviates the storm raging inside him.

TRANSLATOR: Ajmer Rode is also a poet and dramatist with several publications to his credit. He writes and translates both in Punjabi and English.
