This is a story of a middle class Indian with a prosaic career who manages to get a breakthrough and migrates to US in 2023 at the age of 35.

The year now is 2078 and the date is 31 December. Today is his 90th birthday and last day before he undertakes the vow of peaceful slumber.

As he sits to pen down his flashback stories chronologically in his dairy, he starts to unfold series of breath taking and chilling events which occurred around the world in his time. ……..….. Neither the world nor the world order remained the same.

Each Death must be full of life. And so be it in the life of Jeevan Malhotra

Read to know how and why the concept of taking peaceful slumber at a certain age has got the acceptance of one and all……….…...

A thrilling work of imagination peeping into the near and far future of the world. Though a work of fiction today may come on to become a reality someday€€ If reality bites today €.. you never know the reality may engulf us tomorrow..

The moot questions which the author adds in this crucible are :

* Will the moral values of the younger generation ( Youngen- as author likes to call them in the book) will not change in the coming twenty or thirty years?

* Will the social networking sites not unite the Youngen for their cause and make them a force to reckon with?

* Will the older generation not be be pushed to the corner in the political arena? How will they react to this uncalled for show of indignation by the Youngen.

* Will the denizens of earth be able to thwart the onslaught of a cyber assault from other planets? Will the world be able to make a protective cyber shield around it?

* Will the developments in the field of medicine and gene mapping not give us a disease-free life . If yes, will we be able to conquer death?

* Since birth of a is an artificial process and not a natural one then why not death? If human being has the right to give birth why it does not have the right to die? If yes, then why voluntary death peacefully is no longer a taboo and has become an acceptable norm across the world.
