1946, Dehra Dun, India. The Radcliffe line is drawn and the largest mass migration in history is taking place. 1960, Nairobi, Kenya. A young man is starting a new life as an immigrant Indian with his young family. 2017, Halifax, Canada. A society wedding is bringing family, friends and foreigners together who have not seen each other for years. Three countries, two rivals, two female abductions. Set against a backdrop of post-partition India and Pakistan, 1960s' Kenya and modern-day Atlantic Canada, this tale follows the story of two families, united by heritage, torn apart by hatred. It retells the tragedies of partition violence and the fight to restore human dignity when all is lost. The story of families ripped apart and long-lost buried secrets finally culminate in an outpouring of pent-up grief and injustice that must be avenged. The plight of two women, bound together by history, yet torn apart by time. Sareeta desperately trying to reunite her family against the tides of bygone generations and migration. Gori trying to claw her way out of a poverty, inflicted on her by circumstance and revenge. Women so similar and yet so wildly apart that the idea of any reconciliation seems to be beyond reason. Accented with family recipes handed down through three generations, Sanjog - A Novel will take you back in time to one of the most turbulent events in human history and bring you through a story of love, malice and redemption.
Reeta Singh was born in 1974 in the United Kingdom. The daughter of first generation, East-African Indians, she grew up in an idyllic market town just outside of London. She studied at an all-girls secondary school before completing Bachelor of Science in genetics at Newcastle University and passing out with 1st class honours degree. She then went on to study medicine, at Leicester University, and embark a career in pediatrics. On meeting her husband, she opted to become a GP to serve a deprived community in North East Lincolnshire. It was here where she had her first dog closely followed by two children. She practiced clinically for her own community and helped serve patients who were difficult to doctor, and she also taught medical students for a number of years before leaving the NHS and emigrating to North America. In 2015, she moved with her own family to Canada where she took a career break to raise her children, have two more children and embark on a new career as a writer. Sanjog, her debut novel, was written overlooking the Atlantic waters of her new home, Halifax, Nova Scotia, where she now lives with her husband, four children and a dog. Her first novel is a tribute to her father and mother.
