The Association Of Small Bombs
When brothers Tushar and Nakul Khurana, two Delhi schoolboys, pick up their family’s television set from a repair shop with their friend Mansoor Ahmed one day in 1996, disaster strikes without warning. A bomb – one of the many ‘small’ ones that go off seemingly unheralded across the world – detonates in the Delhi marketplace, instantly claiming the lives of the Khurana boys. Mansoor survives, bearing the physical and psychological effects of the bomb. Karan Mahajan writes brilliantly about the effects of terrorism on victims and perpetrators, proving himself to be one of the most provocative and dynamic novelists of his generation.
