Product description

Product Description

Someone wants Kratu's whole family dead. Is it personal vendetta? Or is it because they have access to Kratu's grandmother Kubha's stories, which conceal perilous secrets? The eventful lives of Kubha and her family span a hundred years and encompass turbulent phases of Indian history. From her ancestors, Kubha inherited a basketful of stories. Kratu, a graduate student at Stanford mentions Kubha's stories to Afsar Fareedi, a linguistic palaeontologist, in a casual conversation. Afsar quickly figures out that the bedtime tales contain rich linguistic fossils and layers of history. Afsar, Kratu, and his best friend Tista travel across continents to trace the origin of her stories. Their journey also leads them to discover one of the oldest civilizations of the world. But will their efforts also unearth the causes behind the series of murders?
