What motivates men and women to seek love outside the marriage fold. Is it the indifference of husband/wife, sons/daughters, marital discord, lust or plain boredom. There is a line from the book which goes like this “What could be more intoxicating than what’s forbidden”.

This is the story of Trina and Debashish who seek solace in each other’s company and decide to stay together. Debashish wife has died leaving him with a son and Trina’s husband and kids ignore her at home.

Its is a poignant tale
A widower and father of a 6 year old son and an unhappily married mother of two fall in love.On the spur of a moment they decide to give up everything and live together only to realize the power of the ties that held them back all these years, This beautiful novel captures the thoughts of the two during this fateful single day of their lives.
