10/3 Rash Behari Avenue is a story of one of those palatial houses, which once adorned the city
of Calcutta (now Kolkata). And yet, ironically, these were the very houses which most owners
were too willing-even eager-to destroy, for monetary gains.
The story of the house revolves around an upper class Bengali Brahmin, Gour Mohan, whose
children defiled all the values he stood for: destroying joint-family system, family relations…
10/3 Rash Behari Avenue is also the story of a city, Calcutta, starting from partition to Singur – a
city which has witnessed Naxalite Movement, rise and fall of the Left Front’s rule; a city which
has been entranced by Uttam-Suchitra’s chemistry, as also, enamoured by Shah Rukh Khan!
Enchanting is the city, and so is the house that tells the tale, that this novel is!
A house narrates the story, that 10/3 Rash Behari’ Avenue is, reflecting just one thing: “Change.”
