Author: Abhimanyu Jha
Published By: Srishti Publisher
From The Book:
2008- The year in which the world became poorer and India less safer, there was a coupe passionately in love, Aniruddh and Apu.
Aniruddh, a Ducati riding, economics loving dude studying in St. Stephen’s college and Aparajita a.k.a Apu, a girl from Goa who loves roadside food and super large ear rings. Opposites in a lot of ways, they fell for each other the instant they met.
But then on a pleasant November night, when India was going to sleep, Aniruddh’s love for his Saanwli Memsaab met a terrifying enemy.
I would start my review with a very personal note, this book is one of the best I have ever read. Thanks Mr. Abhimanyu Jha for gifting novel readers with such an awesome gift.
This book isn’t about the love of a Delhite with a Mumbaikar but this book simultaneously speaks of the things happening at Delhi and Mumbai. The Author has deliberately built the story describing the things of his past (at Delhi) and the things happening at present (Mumbai)
This story begins with Aniruddh falling in love with Apu, more or less, it was like love at first sight for both of them. Every couple have fights and arguments and their story wasn’t an exception. But the experienced Aniruddh’s Gill uncle helps the couple in many ways to make their relationship perfect and stable. Then the couple decides to get marry but Aniruddh’s father rejects Apu as she is of different religion. Aniruddh tries his best to make him agree but fails. Having no other way, Aniruddh then decides to leave his home for the lady whom he loved more than anything else and with that story continues…
The book has a complete mixture of love and emotions which will make you laugh and even cry sometimes. Once you start reading it, you just can’t put it down until the end.
There are some twists and the climax will certainly make you cry (what will be the use if I say it here, read it to know)
On a personal note, I am disappointment with the author using Hindi words and love being replaced with the symbol of heart. It takes away the flow while reading.
Anyways, I suggest all to must read this book.
My Rating: 4.5/5 (A Must Pick)
