    Summary Of The Book

    Ravi is a young man with a bright career ahead of him. He is at the start of his life, with a woman who loves him, and a research position offer from Princeton University. He is set to have everything a young man could desire.

    But, that dream is destroyed when he has an illicit affair with his stepmother. Ridden with guilt and shame, and filled with self-loathing, he abandons everything including his family, his career, and his love. He decides to lose himself in a new life, away from familiar things.

    He ends up in the small village of Khasak, near Palakkad. It is a place that is rich in myths and legends, and filled with colorful characters. Ravi starts a school there, and while he tries to bring the outside world and expand rational knowledge into the little village, he himself is in for an education.

    Super

    It is one of the best books

    Just one word to describe "AMAZING"

    But flipkart needs 'least 200 characters'.

    So a small review

    The characters of this novel are super. Language wise this novel is a marvel also the slang's used in the novel makes us feel a real story rather than a fiction
