Come, Before Evening Falls

In a society governed by strict marriage rules and the diktats of the khap panchayat,  Jugni knows that love is not an option. She must not meet Raakha again. And yet....
Written in simple, spare and elegant prose Come, Before Evening Falls is an unflinching look at the price paid for love in a land where all romance is viewed as an unforgivable trespass. Set in the Rohtak Division of the erstwhile Punjab Province in the year 1909 – but as relevant today as a hundred years ago- the book paints a poignant picture of a young Jat girl torn between family loyalty and the undeniable impulse of love.
