This book is harmonized in 1930’s Punjab, before partition time and was at first written in the Punjabi Language. Navdeep Suri has glossed this Indian classic artfully, preserving the unhappiness and poetry that waves through this exceptionally awesome work.
The writer, Nanak Singh has been outlines as the parent of the Punjabi Novel. It’s a tale of Kedar who works for the vindication of a sin for which he discover himself guilty. During this procedure, he absorbs in love with a chick but doesn’t get married due to his guilty moral sense.

If only individuals lived as unselfish way as the strength of this novel the universe would be something beyond beautiful, something else today.
The second most significant character in this novel is Veena, the teenage daughter of Panna lal, who has taken a center spot line in the heart of the young person, and who influences the reader with her sweet yet elegant grace, is a beauty everyone would applaud for. The way her sobs, and her dilemma and her feelings have been penned down in the book, you almost feel like getting into the plot and touching her shoulder to ease out her pain.

The tale is gripping from the initial phase, and not a single word is misused carrying the unwanted decoration other emo-writers would’ve devoted upon. Its smooth, its easy, its plain. Its words are not massive, and the lines are exactly the plain lines you’d have thought had you been in the persona place. The writer has narrated it so gracefully you’ll not identify a single error in the sweet storyline.
