NOVEL (Chakra Publishing, 2004)
This is the story of a boy who is forced by circumstances to leave his
quiet village for a small town before he makes the journey to Calcutta.
The novel is set in British India - at the time prior to and after the
Indian Uprising or 'Mutiny' - and on the high seas.
The novel deals with themes rarely explored in fiction. It is a story
assailed by tragedy, by man's inhumanity to man, but it is also evocative
of incredible courage and endurance, love and romance, revelation and
self-discovery, as Rama moves closer to his destination.
