What would you do if you woke up from a gruesome accident, not knowing who you are or where you come from? How would you react if you get your memory back only in bits and pieces? Would you survive persecution by the most ruthlessly efficient organisation in the country? How do you know for sure whether you are a good person or evil?
For the first time in the Indian Blogosphere, bloggers will be able to review an e-book! We have 10 e-book copies of the Thar Express for review!
Overview of the book:
Am I dead? Is this how it feels to be dead……? Thar Express tells the story of a man who is rescued from the aftermath of a landslide near the India-Pakistan Line of Control. He is barely alive and appears to have no memory of his identity, his past or the circumstances that led him to a remote and sensitive part of the country that he was rescued from.
After initially being cared for in an army hospital, he is sent to a doctor who specializes in treating those afflicted by memory loss. Under the unconventional but effective care of this doctor, he begins to remember tiny fragments of his past and sets off on a journey of re-discovering himself that leads him across seven different states and brings him in contact with people who wittingly or unwittingly help him along in this journey.
The army intelligence, initially suspicious of his antecedents and intent but with no hard facts to act on, stumbles across information that pushes them beyond suspicion. They launch a relentless manhunt to re-capture what they now consider to be a dangerous insurgent. Will the authorities’ worst fears come true or are they just chasing an illusion? The story takes the reader through twists and turns, introduces characters who represent the eccentric mixture of mirth and cynicism that is twenty-first century India and unfolds the unexpected ending.
