Nagina, the beautiful and ruthless daughter of Rai Sahab Hukam Singh, is driven only by a consuming passion to inherit her father's sugar mill in Majhauli. Anmol, son of the loyal family retainer, is driven only by his consuming passion for herů Hoping that his special equation with the sugar cane farmers will help her win control over the sugar mill, the sultry Nagina lures her ex-flame Anmol out of middle-class Lajpat Nagar torpor with the promise of rekindling the relationship they shared fourteen years ago. So, largely indifferent to the raging agitation brought on by the Mandal Commission Report, and insensitive to the havoc they are creating in the lives of those around them, Nagina and Anmol set about pursuing their personal agendas. Anmol deserts his family and finds himself embroiled deeper and deeper in the caste-ridden politics of the sugar industry while Nagina plays every underhand trick in the book to stay on topůSet in part against the riot-hit streets of New Delhi in the early Nineties and then in the villages of the sugar belt of western UP, where feudal sugar lords continue to brazenly exploit the poor, Loveleen Kacker's novel is as much a comment on the entrenched mindsets of India's exploiters and exploited as a feisty novel of ambition and lust. Printed Pages: 288.
