"Parabaas" is a novel about a Sikh family who settled in Kolkata, after leaving Lahore because of the partition, and the Delhi after the Sikh riots. The story explores an age-old conundrum - where is one's homeland? Can a Sikh boy growing up in Kolkata be a "bangali"? Or will he always be a "sikh" or "punjabi"? This story about mistrust towards a "foreigner",  and equating religion with terrorism, is especially relevant in today's world.

The novel will be presented in several parts. Read by Smt Maitreyee Chakraborty.
