What makes a man stand by and watch violence being done to another? What drives a family to attack neighbours whom they have lived with in peace for as long as they can remember? How does a woman react to her husband’s brutal killing of a pregnant stranger on the street? Attempting to understand what happened in Godhra in 2002 is to try and comprehend the extremes of human behaviour, the triggers and consequences of violence—and loyalty. And that is exactly what the author sets out to do in this brilliant and unforgettable narrative built on several years of research and interviews.
