ਓ ਪਹਿਲੀ ਪੰਜਾਬੀ ਨਾਵਲ ਹੈ ਉੱਚੀ ਕੁਆਲਤੀ ਵਿਚ ਛਾਪੀ, ਜਿਸ ਵਿਚ ਚਿੱਤਰ ਹਨ ਅਤੇ ਬਹੁਤ ਖੂਬ ਕਹਾਣੀ ਇਹ ਕਾਪੀ ਇੰਡੀਆ'ਚ ਨਹੀਂ ਮਿਲ ਸਕਦੀ ਹੈ

O is a collector's edition and the first edition of a beautifully crafted and illustrated Punjabi novel, the first of its kind, quite unavailable anywhere else. It contains 6 unique illustrations to accompany the text, all in high quality colour.

O is the story of a man cursed to live until he finds his true love, roaming India at night as a man and at day as a beast that hunts for food, and is also hunted for its pelt and bones by a gang of poachers.

It is the tragedy of a man who has witnessed Punjab being given to the British, the massacres of 1947 and the brutal horrors of 1984. A man who has seen his language and culture attacked and water downed over the years.

It is also the story of a girl sold cruelly by her father for the promise of wealth, the treatment of women in Punjab and the vanity of modern India...

As such it is the first Great Punjabi Novel ( In the same context as the Great American Novel), as it deals not only with the personal relationship of the cursed hero and the girl he purchases, sold like some chattel, but deals with the themes of God, Feminism, Partition, Caste, 1984 and morality. And it does so as the first true Punjabi Gothic novel...
