Book Description

 Crushed by successive crop failures and the burden of debt, Sudhakar Bhadra kills himself. The powerful district committee of Mityala routinely dismisses the suicide and refuses compensation to his widow. Gangiri, his brother, makes it his lifes mission to bring justice to the dead by influencing the committee to validate similar farmer suicides. 

 
Keyur Kashinath of the Democratic Party first-time member of Parliament from Mityala, and son of Vaishnav Kashinath, the partys general secretary is the heir to his fathers power in Delhi politics. He faces his first crisis; every suicide in his constituency certified by the committee as debt-related is a blot on the partys image, and his competence. 
 
The brilliant farmer battles his inheritance of despair, the arrogant politician fights for the power he has received as legacy. Their two worlds collide in a conflict that pushes both to the limits of morality from where there is no turning back. At stake is the truth about inherited democratic power. And at the end, there can only be one winner. 
 
Passionate and startlingly insightful, Shoes of the Dead is a chilling parable of modern-day India.
