Product description

Product Description

What happens when a hot-blooded young man and a beautiful older woman from diametrically opposite backgrounds are thrown together in a violent situation? The confrontation begins with a misunderstanding. Anger gives way to repentance and understanding as circumstances take over.

But it is not as simple as it sounds for the couple who are slowly drawn together. They must overcome the barriers of religion, culture, language and socio-economic background that threaten to pull them apart. Not to forget the burden of societal norms, their traumatic past and the age difference between them.

This is the heart-wrenching tale of Cindy, a 36-year old Anglo-Indian beauty trapped in an abusive second marriage. The result of an English captain’s affair with a beautiful Indian girl, Cindy represents the dilemma of the Anglo-Indian community in post-colonial India of the 1950s.

Shunned by the Indians who viewed the community as being British loyalists and not being Indian enough to be part of the mainstream, the Anglo-Indians felt a sense of loss of identity after the rulers left India in 1947. While many members of the community migrated to foreign shores, there were others who were left facing a future with little hope because they were not seen to be foreign enough to be accepted by the west.

This is the story of Dilip, the local hero who must overcome his traumatic past. Disowned by family and exploited by the local politicians, Dilip – fondly called dada by friends and well-wishers – is a hero to many who see him as a modern-day Robin Hood. Yet, there are many others for whom he is the despicable local toughie. Who is the real Dilip?

The path of love is never easy. There is Cindy’s abusive husband Bert who thinks nothing of challenging Dilip to a fight unto death for trying to win his wife’s affections. What will happen to Dilip’s childhood friend and sympathiser, Liora who knows Dilip better than Dilip himself? And what does Cindy’s wise aunt Gloria feel about her niece’s love for an outsider like Dilip? Does she believe that there is a future for Cindy and Dilip together?

Set in the Calcutta of the 1950s, the former capital of British India serves as a fitting backdrop to the tensions and undercurrents that existed between the representatives of the erstwhile rulers and the ruled.

Is Dilip able to redeem himself? Can Cindy make a clean break from her past and begin life anew? Will the two be able to break through the several hurdles that threaten to pull them apart forever? Read the story if you believe in true love being causeless.
