Overview

Summary of the Book

29 years old Tara’s monotonous routine is interrupted when a strange man enters her life and claims that he will cause bomb blasts and terrorize the religious city of Schedoty in order to exterminate those who believe in the creator and have blind faith. When Tara ignores his claims, the strange man goes ahead with his mission. Will Tara feel guilty? Did she commit a crime of letting the terror attacks occur by not taking an action against the warnings given to her? Or will nihilism prevail and crime she has not have committed as she perceives that imposing religion is in itself a grave sin.

Simultaneously, Tara is tormented when her past surfaces in the form of emotions and a close one gets affected with schizophrenia. Can Tara’s philosophical attitude pave way for survival? This story attempts the exposition of existentialism, religious fundamentalism, nihilism, finding what is real in the unreal, and the wrath of sanity and insanity.
