2. What did the Vadera business house want to build in Ranchi? (Clue: Read Chapter 14 carefully)
Meet Somu. His days are divided between tackling physics problems and the taste of fresh parathas and alu-gobi. He is in love with Sangeeta, the girl next door. She is seven years older than him - and a doctor.
Sangeeta already has a boyfriend. An odd fellow named Jatin who says he will change the world. Then there is a shooting and Jatin disappears. Slowly, Somu and Sangeeta unravel a story of murder, betrayal and ultimately an act of unbelievable cruelty that is `Operation Johar.'
Who is the mysterious woman that Jatin meets in the forest? What is Jatin's strange obsession with conquering the power that she calls the `Guardian of the forest'? And will Jatin really push Sangeeta over the edge of the waterfall to her death?
In 2003, the state of Jharkhand and its capital of Ranchi have become a playground for the forces of hope and the forces of fear. And a bit of love. This is that story.
