Cricket is more than a sport in India. It is considered to be a religion and the players who represent the national side are worshipped as living gods. Life in the Sunshine is a fictional account which traces this passion for the game through the lives of 3 youngsters Sat, Trib, and Sam. The trio has one common goal, and that is to don the national colours and play cricket for their country.
The book talks about how the 3 teenagers fall in love with the game and cherish the moments they have on and off the field. The author vividly describes all the fantasies that run through the minds of these youngsters, their imaginary alternative versions of matches and even disappointment they suffer as they watch India being defeated continuously by their arch rival, Pakistan.
