Four teenagers disappear from their calm lives of playing cricket and singing Bollywood songs by the riverside and find themselves on the opposite side of the border, in Pakistan. There, they become a part of the movement against the Indian army, disillusioned with the Indian Army s attempts to secure peace. The harsh reality of war and the toll it takes on the people drive them to join the separatist movement, to find a better peace for the valley. Truly evocative and artistic in its ability to stir readers emotions, this is a coming-of-age story rooted in the stark insensitivity of humanity s desire for war and conflict.
