The book Anon. by Bhavani Iyer starts with an introduction of two young lads who come from different lifestyles, economical and cultural backgrounds. The plot is set up in the beautiful city of Joy and the epitome of heritage, Calcutta during the years between 1960 – 70.
The author has captured perfectly the soul of the city during those rustic years of paradigm shift both in the economy and culture of the native Bengalis.
The journey of the two young boys from their childhood to their later years is narrated in a very interesting manner. They both come across each other in the heavenly destination, ‘Shantiniketan’.
