When Colonel Vikram Rathode of the Indian Army calls Dr. Nisha Garg in New Delhi from Drass after 13 years, his carefully-constructed world of ‘missions impossible’ and honor stripes crumbles. Vikram has to make a choice between love and duty. And, with the Coronavirus pandemic raging across the world and threatening to bear down on India, Vikram stakes his career to leave his post to pull Nisha out of the mire into which she was sinking at the isolation ward in Delhi’s prestigious Safdarjung Hospital. Vikram elopes with Nisha from the hospital, braving the Covid lockdown – for he cannot go wrong in life again. He had made a mistake 13 years ago when he left her for the Army. He has to make it up to her. Entwined around a debate over whether army officials are entitled to leave on personal grounds in times of national emergencies, Lockdown Love explores the daring frontiers of personal compulsions against the call of duty – and military commitments. A passionate and nail-biting drama that begins in the icy mountains of Drass and moves to New Delhi, ending at the army post in Udhampur. A thought-provoking and delightful novel. A true page-turner!
