‘….a story of love as compelling as it is doomed’

In a society governed by strict marriage rules and the diktats of the Khap panchayat, Jugni knows love is not an option; her beloved uncle, whose unspoken favourite she has always been, will die if he ever learns of this betrayal of family honour, her brothers, her grandmother who has brought her up, their social standing in the village, everything will be lost; she could end up a corpse hanging from a tree. She cannot– must not – meet Raakha again.

And yet…and yet…

Set in the Rohtak Division of the erstwhile Punjab Province in the year 1909 – but as relevant today as a hundred years ago – Come, Before Evening Falls paints a poignant picture of a young Jat girl torn between family loyalty and the undeniable impulse of love.
