A powerful story about one man's refusal to give in to the barrenness of modern life.

The novel tells the story of Kundan, a labor officer, at a sensitive defense project in a remote desert town. A section of the workers at the site are prisoners drawn from different jails. While recruiting them, Kundan detects an innocent villager who has taken on the identity and sentence of a ruthless killer and joined the project in his place. This becomes the starting point of a series of revelations.

Writing with gut-wrenching honesty about the terror and the plain which haunts the citizens of modern society, the author has produced a stark and disturbing novel about the nature of human existence.
