ABOUT THIS BOOK
‘At a time when the world is obsessed with material goods, where ambition and the race to get ahead often trump human relations, this book serves as a timely reminder of the things that really matter.’—Navdeep Singh Suri, India’s Ambassador to UAE
Human beings have a tendency to build connections, to be understood and to develop special bonds—bonds that are sometimes ethereal.
Journeying back to the 1940s, this narrative brings to you a moving account of Bhushan, an officer in the British Army of colonial India, and his faithful ardali Shingara Singh. Shingara’s exceptional loyalty to his sahib costs him a death sentence for a crime he never committed. Almost two decades later, Bhushan’s fateful visit to Shingara’s village makes him establish a bond with his ardali’s family—a bond that is etched in time for generations. Years later, when Bhushan’s son, Rajesh, visits Shingara’s family in Punjab, he discovers the secret of the crime between the generous sahib and his loyal ardali.
Bonds of Destiny is a heart-warming rendition of the association between the two families intertwined together by this deadly secret across time and generations.
