Well done in first attempt. This book takes you in lesser known world, transition camp. Vikrant ji unfolds this story so nicely that you get engrossed page by page. Fact Note after every section is brilliant idea, it gives insight of ground reality. Although I was expecting the end on similar lines it evolves through unexpected twist. The story ends on positive thought and leaves you with moist eyes.
