We endeavour to explore the effect of recoil of heavy flavor jet due to scattering with light quarks. Earlier, neglecting this recoil we have observed a radiationless region along the direction of propagation of heavy quark jet, known as the dead cone. once we allow the heavy quark jet to bend, the dead-cone region is deluged by radiation. Hence this study, on one hand, is a step towards removing the prevalent eikonal approximation in jet-quenching models and on the other hand revisits the notion of dead-cone within the non-eikonal region.
