The Show Time
The book revolves around three main protagonists: Subodh, a debt-ridden farmer, Vanhi a schoolgirl and Stephen Noronha, a bank manager. Continuous drought season takes a heavy toll on Subodh’s life. As the bank debt piles up, it leaves him with no choice. During one such suicide attempt, Subodh happens to meet Vanhi, a schoolgirl near a railway track. Their initial conversation enlightens him and the grief disappears in no time, because of her innocence and simplicity. All those intentions of committing suicide are metamorphosed by her audacity and the magical tiffin box that she carries. Subodh's incredible journey begins with the little one's brilliance and under the lights of Stephen Noronha. Every obstacle towards his journey creates an opportunity for himself and for the villagers at large. On achieving his ambitious dream, Stephen helps Subodh to deliver a powerful message to all the debt-ridden farmers.
Famer’s suicide is one of the most serious concern in India. Debt, drought and depression force them to take such drastic measures. Education and awareness are the another factors responsible because of which they are not able to think beyond. With my book, I have tried my level best to address this issue and bring up an awareness in the society.
