It is a sultry summer afternoon and a police officer in plain clothes, carrying a gun, is waiting for Dibakar Roy to leave a bank. The sights and sounds keep transporting the officer to another time in another city, to an evening that changed his life forever when he was a child of twelve. Is his hunt going to end today?
The Hunt is a short tale describing the characteristic complexity of human behavior. Written in a simple manner, the story expresses how a person borne out of his circumstances could behave.
There is a young boy in the backdrop who came to the airport to receive his father. The father promised to get him a special gift. Alas! Neither the father nor the gift ever comes to him. Today, after 15 long years, he remembers each detail of that fateful November evening clearly. It breaks his heart to reminisce the face of her mother which turned ashen, the chaos that prevailed over the airport all of a sudden, and everything that came after in the subsequent years. He experienced confusion then, he feels the fire of vengeance engulfing him now.
The book points out the slack judiciary of India and how a mere dearth of evidence against the wrongdoer sets him free. It also emphasizes the negligence of a person at responsibility resulting in a catastrophic situation and him, slipping away from the clutches of law easily.
Being a short book, it would be a breezy yet heart touching tale.
