In 1980s New Delhi, former nurse Mrs. Ravinder quits her hospital job to set up her own clinic, caring for poor pregnant women. Supported by her vocation, she, her husband, and her children, Naveen, Priti, and seven-year-old Harsh, live a comfortable life, surrounded by finery. But this pleasant image is a façade: Mrs. Ravinder harbours sinister secrets, secrets Harsh is forced to keep hidden, secrets no child should have to burden.
After their life of comfort is suddenly ripped away, Harsh and his sisters must adapt to life in a strange new town. All the while, they slowly begin to realise that the roots of Mrs. Ravinder's secrecy go even deeper. Everything that Harsh believes about himself and his family is thrown into disarray as he and his sisters work to unravel the twisted web of deception, mystery, and fraud that they have been blind to their entire lives.

I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful daughters. In 2011, I was an editor/member of the university journal. When I graduated from the college of languages and translation, KSU, in 2013-2014, I worked as a language trainer. I obtained my master's degree from Teesside University in Creative Writing. I have also been a freelancer in writing and translation. Traveling and living new experiences; Fresh air, walking under the rain or gazing out the window of my favorite cafe are my happiest moments. Talking to a stranger on a train or enjoying the little talks in cozy places, writing, reading, drawing, and listening to music is my way to release my stress since I was a little girl. Attention: I'm addicted to the smell of the papers when it's mixed with the aroma of the brewed coffee.
