NIRBHAYA
Gautam Kumar

Life was not easy for Nirbhaya even before she was born. Her mother’s in-laws did whatever they could to stop her from coming into this world. She was kidnapped when she was just five. But life made ways for her. Now Nirbhaya is a teenage girl. She is friend to Baba, Aysha and Sheela, and is in love with Kishore. Baba is fighting the case of his late granddaughter, who was criminally assaulted and killed. Aysha is a free-bee but her freedom ends when she meets with a local goon, Sarju, in her college. Sheela is French, and came to India in search of justice for her late husband. They all take the same bus every day. But what happens on the unusual day? Based on the true story of the notoriously tragic 2012 Delhi gang-rape incident that shook the entire world, this unputdownable novel of Gautam Kumar tells the breathtaking tale of Nirbhaya, the fearless, who has become a symbol for every woman who wants to live.

Gautam Kumar studied Mechanical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, India. He teaches Mathematics and has written some books on the subject. Nirbhaya is his debut novel.
