From The Book:

What happens when Jai is stranded at the Metro station with an irritating stranger called Iyer & a mysterious Pathan???
How will the tale from Iyer’s past affect Jai’s future??
And why does the mysterious Pathan keep staring at Jai??
What happens when inside that small room of the Metro station??
Nobody believes Jai when he claims that ‘He was there!’ people think he is crazy. But is he???

My Views:

“When Strangers Meet” is a story about two stranger; a boy and a girl who bumps into each other at a metro station and from being stranger they fall in love with each other…

This was the first thing that came to my mind when I picked the book. And perhaps this will be the first thought for many who judge book looking into its cover or title. But this novel by K.Hari Kumar is an exception.

This story is about 3 strangers;
  • A poor Pathan who sells tea for his living with his elder son, somewhere near the highway.
  • A teenage kid, Jai who runs away from his home because his father had decided to join him in an engineering college while he had dreamed of something else.
  • Third and perhaps the most important character of the story, “Iyer, Krishnaprasad Iyer” who is regretting for the things which he have done in his past.

The three of the strangers meet in a small resting room of Ghittorni Railway Station, somewhere near Delhi.
The story moves with Iyer narrating his past to Jai as Jai’s present was more or less like Iyer’s past. After hearing Iyer’s story, Jai realizes the mistake which he was trying to commit and decides to not repeat the things which Iyer had did in his life.

This is not the end, the story has a twist, page.180 might make you confused and speechless. (Read it to know it. What will be the use if I tell it here..)

This Author has presented the entire story in a simple yet beautiful manner. He has also described the love and affection bond between a father and his son.

If you are thinking of any love story or something on lust then this book might not attract you, but if you like something different to read then this is, “Must a Pick”

“ Three men, One fateful day,                   
                  A small room, And a story of lifetime….”

My Ratings : 4.5/5 (A Must Pick)
