‘Ghar Wapsi’ is the story of a generation, uprooted from its homes in search of a better future, but never stops to think of its society. It’s the story of inner and outer struggle of several young people from states of Bihar, UP etc. The constant thought of ‘what if I were there’ keeps bothering them as they feel helpless when they are pitted to choose between their immediate future in metropolitan cities and a possible return to their roots. It speaks about the flawed education system and ills within the society of past decades which forced parents to send their kids to bigger cities. Apart from protagonist’s inner conflict, emotions and relationships flow in this novel. From the individual relationships like father-son, husband-wife, teenage lovers and friends, to the bond that human and society form between themselves make this a book worth reading.
