Description

A riveting story of love, revenge, and retribution across continents and generations. Antony from Cochin, India lands in London in the thick of the Fuhrer's wrath on Britain. He has the strange company of Ali Abdulla from Kashmir, brought to the island nation by Peter Scot, a racehorse tycoon. The stage is thus set for an era of intense intrigue, passionate love, and bloody revenge leading up to the bombing of the high-speed Channel train connecting London with Paris. How an award-winning British born young engineer's mind works to wreck the ambitious project lends an explosive end to the novel. Alternatively set in India's greenest state of Kerala and the most beautiful place on earth Kashmir and London, the hub of the remains of a superpower that once ruled the world and ruled the waves. Story of an ethnic minority's yearning for survival in a melting pot of many cultures that is the UK.

As predicted the police were not so pleased about this news and decided to plan a trap for him. They conjured a false police case against him connected with Naxalite group and had him arrested, beaten and tortured at the Mavelikara police station. This was his first punishment for bringing out the love and truth that he had towards literature writing. The police and his parents threatened him to stop writing or leave Thamarakulam/Charumood.
