The Temple Stop is not just a story of love and romance. It is a story of all those soldiers who have sacrificed their lives in the service of the nation. A story of their helpless families who are forced to live a life of poverty and oblivion waiting for some divine intervention. It is also a social commentary on the evils prevailing in the society. But nowhere are the social messages forced on the readers. The treatment is very subtle. The story has a natural flow like that of a river and the messages are like the silt it carries along its course which helps make the land fertile and rich. l intend to do the same to the minds of my readers. My novel also boasts of a novelty and that is the introduction of poetry in contemporary fiction. My book starts with a poem and ends with a poem. Throughout the story l have expressed strong emotional scenes through poetic verses. The style is simple, the language colloquial but it is the profundity of thought and some soul searching poetry that makes The Temple Stop a rich work of literature.
