The eight stories in this collection have common threads running through them: each of the main characters is on a journey. This may take the form of a train journey such as the one from Kolkata to Mumbai, a journey on foot to a family wedding, or a journey through time itself. Each of them is a journey of discovery. In all of these stories there is an event that becomes a significant turning point on the journey: the unexpected return of a family member, a mislaid address, a judge who didn’t get the justice he deserved when his wife filed for divorce, a police officer who catches his finger in a door jamb, a young girl entering a train compartment.
