Take a deep breath before you are born here, my child!
You take birth in a land where I struggled; gave it my sweat and blood. A land
that I thought belonged to me..…unbridled, uncompromising.
Krishna is a Dalit boy from Bihar who struggles too verthrow the chains that
hold him back. Chhavi is a high caste Brahman girl fighting for the rights of
others, propagating equality in a politically charged Lucknow University
campus. After Krishna saves Chhavi from getting torched during a protest
against reservation, love slowly blossoms, only to be ruthlessly crushed by a
society that thrives on divisions of caste and religion. From student politics
in Lucknow to the interiors of Bihar, from the corridors of power to the glitz
of media and the film industry in Mumbai.
A Broken Man is the quest of a deprived Krishna to redeem hope from
despair, love from separation and success out of repeated failures. From the
bestselling author of It Happened That Night and Three Times Loser, this is a
story that reinforces our faith in what love can accomplish as it pushes us to
achieve the impossible, making us tap our true inner potential.
