The early 1980s: A fiery preacher has outgrown his mentors and is raising an army of radicalized young men across Punjab. In Moranwale village, young Fareed is emerging from adolescence, uncertain about his future in an increasingly divided and violent society. In Delhi, Sikand, a middle-aged journalist, struggles to keep a grip on his life even as news from the land of his childhood becomes alarming.
As terror spreads through Punjab, Fareed and Sikand find themselves in the Golden Temple in Amritsar, among armed men primed for a holy war. The two men are on opposite sides—but after the Indian Army storms the shrine, their fates are twinned for ever.
Kanwaljit Deol’s compelling debut novel, as intimate as it is political, is a work of rare power and sensitivity about a turbulent period in Punjab’s and India’s history.
