The Intruder – a Nocturnal Interlude, the novel, is part myth and part fiction and moves across boundaries of time. The story explores a mundane sequence of events that can precede any event of great consequence. It also explores moral and ethical dilemmas which can arise out of well- intentioned actions. It deals with the inherent tensions between an average person who spends his or her life amidst routine surroundings with a capacity to suddenly shed the outer persona and change into a character with enormous powers not seen in ordinary human beings. When is this going to happen? How will people react to the change? And most importantly why does the character mask his/her powers? This story is about the courage ordinary people show in extra ordinary situations.
