Boarding School Boy is a story set in the days of the British Raj in India about:
- A gifted boy, physically and intellectually blessed by nature, traumatized by events of his early youth-an unwilling witness to an incident evoking powerful human emotions he did not understand; abandoned as a child in a Boarding School and left to grow up on his own for eight years, with little guidance through puberty, which predictably left big gaps in the structure of his persona.
- A dedicated priest, masterful in his role as teacher and mentor, tormented by questions of his faith and the sacrifice of an abandoned love.
- On the periphery, the laundryman's daughter, a wisp of a girl, who haunts the pages of the book with her exotic allure.
- Five boys of varying circumstances, each with their unique blend of character and magnetism, drawn by Fate into a brotherhood whose lives intertwine in a complex filigree of events that hurtles inexorably towards its unexpected conclusion.
