A haunting novel of love, passion and betrayal, set in the Second World War era with a thematic reference to India's freedom struggle was launched in the Capital on Monday evening.

Titled "The Wrong Turn: Love and Betrayal in the Time of Netaji," the fictional tale has been authored by Sanjay Chopra and Namita Roy Ghose. Barkha Dutt launched the book at Zerruco- Kitchen and Bar. 

Shivani Wazir Pasrich, Tisca Chopra and Nasir Abdullah read from the book during the course of the evening.This was followed by an interesting discussion on the book by Sanjay Chopra, Namita Roy Ghose, and Tisca Chopra.

"I was clearly excited about this critical piece of Indian history couched in a fictional narrative. A great story told marvellously. In fact, I am delighted to say that this great kahani was launched in Mumbai by none other than Vidya Balan. Clearly one of the best books Om Books International has published," said Ajay Mago, Publisher, Om Books International. 

"The Wrong Turn: Love and Betrayal in the Time of Netaji", is a sweeping tale of passion set against the freedom struggle.
