After a long gap of more than ten years, renowned writer Priyendu Hazarika returns to the town where once he was inspired to begin his journey as a writer. An aspiring young female writer keeps him company on his visits, while she faces treachery from a crooked publisher who has promised to publish her first manuscript. Priyendu’s creative mind keenly observes his surrounding world. For him the cries of a lonely Keteki bird at midnight echoes human anguish. A book at times imitates the author’s life. Memories stir and he remembers people he loved and lost. He admits to lacking the courage to weave a painful, harsh truth into his stories.
