Book Description

50-year old Rama is a chapati seller living in Patparganj with his 46-year old wife Rachel, 18-year old son Rohit and 16-year old daughter Renuga. Before leaving for work every morning, he patiently prepares chapatis and chickpea curry for his family’s breakfast. Despite Rama’s honest work ethic, steadfast devotion to the family and kind heart, Rohit is thoroughly embarrassed that his father is only a chapati seller and repeatedly disrespects him. This deeply saddens Rama but he takes it in his stride.  One day, Rama encounters an enigmatic stranger from out of town, who goes by the name of Paul Reaper and claims to be in need of temporary lodging. After a brief conversation, Rama invites the stranger to stay with him and his family in their modest brick house. None are aware that the stranger is actually the incarnation of Death – who has shown up at their doorstep to escort Rama into the afterlife and, in the process, reveal what is worth treasuring.
