The story, brilliantly narrated in the voice of a young boy, gives us glimpses into the boy and his family's relationship with the sea. The success of Rao's narration is the seamless juxtaposition of the past and present, of the 'before and after' of the tsunami. There are some deeply moving moments in the story… A special mention to the photographs that accompany this story - Karuna Seth and Pervez Bhagat bring real people and faces into our midst, reminding us gently that life is never far away from fiction, and vice versa.
