Fanish is the name of the central character and is a novel about Vanita and Gazal who are vulnerable girls abused and neglected by their families. They are befriended by Fanish who uses his hypnotic charm to draw them into his web of international drug and sex trafficking. He becomes their confidant and companion and as so often happens with defenceless children, they blossom in confidence. They are caught in his web of deceit and subsequently realise that his intention had only been to exploit their feeling of powerlessness and wounded trust in adults. Fanish highlights the realism that without concerned adults, children can easily be trapped and exploited and illustrates the trauma the victims undergo; the scars they leave which in turn inflame reprisal.
