One day, Basanta hears that his house in the vill is about to be demolished. Overwhelmed with nostalgia, he goes back to his vill to see the house one last time after 16 long times. And also begins a trip to his history-- a history that he has always wanted to forget. And therefore unfolds the story of his fellowship with Pawan, who falls prey to vill politics and superstitions, losing his memory in the process. This story is multilayered with the stories of the loving Jethiaama, the snake killer Chilgadi, the gorilla Rocky Dada, the vill shaman Kohinoor-- all various characters who delight and surprise compendiums in equalmeasure.Written in a sweet, flowing language, Firfire brings back the polychromatic recollections of our individual histories.
