As youngsters in Bulbul Kothi, Allahabad, Rekha and Amina shared much: dolls, gossip, bits of adult-only knowledge. Perhaps nothing would have changed if Rekha's affair with Danish-bhai had not ended in bitterness and heartbreak. Now, after what seems like an eternity, they are back in each other's lives and they long to put the past to rest but can they? The age of cell phones, communal tension and terrorism exhumes the secrets they buried, revealing the brutal truth about what they once considered a simpler time. Neelum Saran Gour's loving narrative traces the journey of two friends in their search for closure and for a place 'where things are slow to change, where one could still find someone unchanged' for one thing is clear: their lives are now irrevocably altered.
