Read In Times of Siege Storyline:

At 52, Shiv Murthy is a New Delhi professor of history. He leads a mild, unremarkable life until, while his wife is away, things spin out of control. First, the young and passionate daughter of an old friend breaks her leg and moves in with him. Even as he struggles to care for Meena and ignore his increasing attraction to her, a group of religious extremists challenges one of his lessons on medieval India. His instinct is to apologize, but the voice inside his head keeps asking: "Do you imagine an ordinary man cannot be a hero?" The decision he makes will prompt readers to ask themselves the same question.From the Trade Paperback edition.
