about book

‘Love’ is a strange emotion. It inspires a person to take on even impossible situations. Until You Come Home depicts this intensity of love, of devotion towards the country and the difficult and trying conditions of life in the defense forces.
It underlines the immense courage that it takes to lay down one’s life for the country; the endless wait for a beloved who never comes home from war, and also the never-ending wait of a sister for her brother.
At the core of this novel is the story of Captain Uday Sharma, who lays down his life for the country, and his beloved, Jaya – who endures tremendous pain because Uday never comes back home. Intertwined with this is another story – that of Major Dev Sharma, posted in Kashmir during OP PARAKRAM, and the love of his life, Mrinalini.
The backdrop of the war prevailing in the two situations is very similar, but will Dev come back to his Mrinalini? Just like Uday was deployed at the North-East Frontier Agency (NEFA) in the China war of 1962, Dev is now deployed in Kashmir during OP PARAKRAM.
Will the story of Dev and Mrinalini turn out to be different from that of Uday and Jaya’s?
