Mohammed Zaid is a boy in his early teens who lives in Old Delhi with his parents and younger siblings. His father, Farooq, never accepted his family as his own and blindly follows his five brothers in both his personal and professional matters. His mother Hajira Khatoon is devoutly religious and submissively discharges her marital duties, even though she is looked down upon by her husband?s family since she is illiterate. She has astronomical expectations from her eldest son, Mohd. Zaid, to become a gem of a man and vindicate them all. When working for his father in his business doesn’t work out for Zaid, he starts looking for independent means to earn money and support his neglected family. However, there is a big secret only known to the parents and elders, one that might bring irrevocable damage to the foundation of this family and split them apart. The Sin of Omission is a story of struggle that births from forceful misinterpretation of the holy diktats under the influence of money and desire. Through the lens of the young Zaid, a reader will find himself in a small house in Azad Market, living the everyday struggles of a family that continuously suffers under the shadow of the terrible Triple Talaq.
