Synopsis

The untimely demise of Sardar Pal Singh leaves three women scarred – Biji, his mother, Nasib Kaur, his wife, and Preet, his college-going daughter. The novel examines their lives in minute detail for almost a week beginning from the day of death.

Bhog ceremony on day four formally ends the period of mourning. Abuzz with activity, these days are never dull. Important and difficult decisions have to be taken, priorities finalized and relationships nourished. Life without him they had never imagined before but his death strengthens their resolve to survive in the choppy waters of life.

Will these women act as a source of trouble or try and help each other to make a smooth transition? Will their paths cross and drift them further apart? Or will they cast away individual egos to settle themselves in exciting roles and make a fresh beginning?

Biji ultimately quits petty domestic politics and gives up control. Nasib plans to join business to carve entrepreneurial identity and keep her husband’s legacy alive with the help of her brother, Monty. Preet decides to pursue higher studies in another city after Abhisek gets engaged to a Bengali girl on realising that the conservative Sikh family would oppose inter-caste marriage.

My dear Devraj, have you read a book? Reading through your manuscript, it seems that you have not. I suggest you go out there and purchase a published book because this is certainly what you will not find in them:
1. Extremely lengthy chapters. You manuscript seems like a small book.
2. The word Mrs. should have a full stop after it, because Mrs is not a word - it is a short form for a longer word
3. Replies like "Hmmm". This is a sound which can be ignored. You have to write the sentence in such a way that the reader gauges what you are trying to say without actually using the word.
4. Unwanted apostrophes, dividing sentences when not actually required
This manuscript needs a lot of work if it has to get somewhere.

The story seem to be going nowhere. Language and grammar needs attention. Better pacing of chapters needed.

Dear Geetha, please rectify the grammatical errors in your review. You cannot write three simple correct sentences in the review.

Well to be honest,it took me 2 hours to read the first chapters, which was unnecessarily lengthy. You severely need to break down the chapters. I could not start with second chapter. Anyway all the best.
