The Point of Return

3.2 based on 62 ratings & 5 reviews on


A story about home, family and country, written with searing honesty and insight.Set in the last decades of the twentieth century in a remote and hilly part of India, this is the moving and beautifully written story of a father and a son. Dr Dam and Babu have lived for years as strangers; strangers tied by blood, strangers in the same home, both puzzled and resentful. But as his father weakens and wearies of life, Babu is drawn closer to him. Before long he finds himself embarking on a great journey, an odyssey through the memories of his father, his family and his country. From the great tides of violence and fear that sweep a land, to the delicate core of one man's being, Point of Return traces with great delicacy the many hidden stories of India.
