One of India's leading novelists Romen Basu has yet again written for a cause, the plight of the Israelis and the Palestinians looking for a just solution. Through fiction this work is more true to life than any historical novel. This is Basu?s fiftieth novel and twenty nine published work. This novel has pained him say the author for decades in which the two sides are not finding a compromise solution rather than settling their disputes with swords. Fatima a Palestinian and Emanuel a Jew, the two principal characters, are in the middle of the dispute. They continue to search for a solution and in the process lose their lives in an accidental death. The underlying message of the novelist is to strike a compromise for a lasting peace. Political characters living or dead mentioned are purely fictional. Any resemblance to the real characters is circumstantial.
