Som Bhaskar is a millionaire-industralist, married to a woman of his choice who has borne him two children, yet relentlessly driven by undefined hunger which he unsuccessfully seeks to satisfy by possession of an object, a business enterprise, a woman.
His search takes him from Bombay to Banares, at once holy and repllent with its narrow, dirty lanes, dancing girls and a mystical aura. Amidst this contrasting juxtaposition of locales, the novel explores the meaning of life and death, illusion and reality, desire and resignation.
