This book is about the life and culture of the Hindu migrants from Dera Ismail Khan, a city by the Indus River, a commercial hub on the trade route from Afghanistan. The Hindus fled the city in 1947 when India got divided. They left their homes empty-handed but carried with them a rich legacy of an unwritten culture, memories and an ancient language. With the passage of years their language, Derewali, is rarely spoken in India and most of the traditions and customs forgotten.

The author has been witness to the culture through life's journey with her parents, who were natives of Dera Ismail Khan.
