Overview

In the sleepy, North Indian town of Amarpur, a young boy named Baba Singh Toor secretly murders a moneylender in a moment of blind sorrow and rage, setting events in motion that will shape the coming generations of Toors.

Hardened by a life of serial misfortune and loss, many years after the murder for which he was never caught, Baba Singh infects his son, Manmohan, with the misery and guilt he was unable to overcome. Two generations later, his grandson, Darshan, the most loyal and unassuming of the Toors, finds himself dragged to the center of conflict as the family demands that he correct past wrongs. How will a chest containing a collection of Baba Singh’s numerous life tragedies allow Darshan to free himself from the dysfunction that has amassed over three lifetimes? And will he live up to his name—meaning one who is blessed with clarity of sight—to finally bury the shame of a long-ago concealed crime?

Spanning continents and cultures, chronicling three generations of Indian men—traveling from the Punjab to Fiji to San Francisco—Darshan is the story of one family’s great capacity for forgiveness, learned after nearly a century of heartache.
