About the Book

This is the story of Mark Hansen, a psychiatric doctor attached to the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Center in the local hospital, and Satee Guha, a psychology student at the local university. It deals with the psychological foundation of a certain personality syndrome, which eventually leads to desperate remedies at escape. In several analysis of drug culture, the blame has been laid on peer pressure, economic problems of the ghettos, poverty, lucrative aspects of business, or the failure to live up to the professed standards. This book discusses the causes of drug abuse such as institutional breakdown and collapse of cultural defense mechanisms. It also suggests solutions for a drug free society.

It is not a violent and sensational sex thriller, but an accurate portrait of a generation frightened, distraught, confused, and betrayed by their creators/guardians. In a cross cultural love story, the author has tried to create a larger context.
