ABOUT THE BOOK
Anand is a suspicious, slightly obsessive, eleven-year-old child who thinks that adults are more often than not more crazy and irresponsible than children. He is at heart a bureaucratic little boy who feels safe when bound by rules and regulations, which his happy-go-lucky parents fail to provide, leading him to feel extremely vulnerable and insecure. He dislikes adventures or unplanned trips but he is forced to travel to a distant village with his documentary filmmaker parents who want to ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“shootÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ ghosts. Along with their driver Kammu who is an ex-con, they set off to explore the story behind the ghosts that haunt ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“Saheb BaganÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢, a mysterious country estate close to the border of West Bengal and Bangladesh.
