The book is a meticulous collection divided into three segments. Aruna's story is brought before all of us by a journalist Pinki Virani. She introduces the book to the mass by saying that "I report on events in order to fulfill people's right to know." Readers mailed letters to the KEM hospital showing enormous concern to the extent that true account of rape and its aftermath has been lifted and printed in several languages, namely Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu. Brain dead for sight, speech and movement yet hopelessly had been alive for years to pain, hunger and terror for over 24 years, her rapist walked a free man after a mere 7 years in prison for robbery and attempt to murder. This is a story which gives a true account of rape and its aftermath. It is a comprehensive biography of trauma stricken nurse Aruna Shanbaug described in three segments i.e. Into the Twilight Zone, Out of Konkan Land and Towards an Elusive Mukti.
