This is a Bengali novel set against the backdrop of the biggest exodus in human history - the 1947 Partition of India. This novel is a record of the tumultuous times in East Pakistan as well as in Indian Bengal. But their problems were vastly different.

The story, revolving around two college friends, both Bengali though one Hindu and the other Muslim soon takes into its expanding orbit other characters, families, issues. The two friends drift apart, separated by the political division. Under the deceptively simple surface are hidden deeper and more complex human issues.
