`No Way Home` (Penguin) by Amarjit Sidhu offers an offbeat theme.

As the separatists and the government threaten peaceful Punjab in 1980s, another group, the more feudal, looks West to escape. Away from this, Dave, a young Sikh is searching for a place he can call home.

Unable to complete his doctorate in the US, he returns to India without a green card, much to the disappoitment of his parents. He moves from Chandigrah to Delhi in look for a job but is trapped in the 1984 Sikh massacre. Scarred, he moves to Canada, shuns his life of affluence and is faced with choices that change his life for ever.
