The land where i flee

The novel elaborates on the story of 4 siblings, raised by their matriarchal grandmother in Gangtok, but flee the country in search of their own identities. The book begins as all 4 now return to celebrate the 84th birthday of their intimidating grandmother. Each sibling hides a sensitive secret from the other, and especially from their grandmother, who is a projection of society in spite of being progressive. It touches relevant social topics of caste, religion, sexuality, freedom and the lack of it. A journey where each individual tries to flee from the society that has shackled them from being who they truly are. The predicamets in the book, are strangely so real, and actual, that it is rare to find any other book that speculates on the same with immense clarity.
