Through Rea, who was his childhood friend and Mr Sen’s daughter-in-law, he had met the dynamic person whom he addressed, as Uncle Sen.Sen had not only assisted Rahul to settle down in Mumbai but also had always been forthcoming regarding any help. He had in fact met Anjali through Uncle Sen and had finally fallen in love.

When Subhankar rushed to India for the cremation of his father, Rahul stood by the family for all possible assistance. On Subhankar and Rea’s insistence, he agreed to occupy Mr Sen’s residence for three months, until his departure. This would give the family the interim time to plan the final disposal of the property.Rahul gets to know more about Mr Sen after his death. All was perhaps not too well with the elderly person. He had his own secret world beyond the visual reach of the city lights. The book covers chilling details of a man attempting to fill up his emptiness on ashes of memories, which ideally should have timely been disposed.
