It marks the battle of goddess Durga with the shape-shifting, deceptive and powerful buffalo demon Mahishasura, and her emerging victorious.

The plot is based in Kolkata and moves along hand in hand with the beauty of Durga Puja. What makes this book special is how precisely each and every detail of the festival is connected to each other. Every event takes the story to another level and you can't predict what's coming next.
