I once changed the history of this state with a gun and a finger.
One shot, one man. Right man, wrong man.
But that was thirty years ago.
I shot people through their heads then.
I pack jeera in a basement now.
THIS IS ME, AND HERE IS MY STORY.
He was the best sharpshooter in the state. A true bullet artist. But he gave it all up to lead a happy, normal, stable life . . . with his loving wife and dear son.
And that proved to be his undoing.
Resonant and deeply affecting, The Jeera Packer is the gripping tale of a man who after three decades of playing the happy family man returns to his profession of old for one final work—to shoot the chief minister.
Convinced that this is his raison d'etre, will he manage to pull off this one last act, as his concluding hat tip to the man he could have been? Will he be able to brush away the jeera dust and rediscover himself? Or has the middle-aged family man already throttled the sharpshooter in him?
