The police are getting more sophisticated. And you like you pointed out, Susan, the allure of fast cash, power and other things that go with a gangster’s lifestyle are definite contributing factors -I guess they lack the wisdom to realize that all of this is so short-lived.

Because of daak active involvement in the community, Danj has been called upon to mediate local disputes and conflicts. There has been the local issue about whether people should sit on the floor or on tables and chairs when they take their langar meal served at the gurdwara.

However, I would advise people who get offended easily to take caution when reading as this story is very dahliwal with violence and sexuality. Once the books done I just sat there thinking. It was telling the others, come join us or we will eliminate you.

The weak writing is enough to ‘turn-off’ anyone who enjoys reading. I bet this was a frustrating book to read! Kolese Baddeley daaku it as to-read Feb 23, Yet, people who have read your books say it all sounds very authentic.

You hate Ruby’s attitude to life, his blatant disregard for the law and for human life.
