I knew exactly how many chapters I wanted, how they should each begin and end, etc. It then took me over a year to expand on them. The book is a bit based on my experiences when I was growing up in India, and the second part is based on what I saw when I came here.

It was a great experience writing the book. To me, it was taking a walk down the memory lane.

Description: …Suddenly, he saw something shiny at the bottom of the abyss. He squinted his eyes to see what it was. He ran back to his binoculars and turned them to see what it was. Sharp barbed wires that separated the two mountains came into focus. He had come as far as he could in his country. But she was standing in another country. He was in South India and she was in North India… Have you ever imagined India being divided into two countries? What happens to the millions of Indians who are from South India but are now residing in North India? Kaahi & Jai were two such people who got trapped in this situation. Everything was going smoothly for them and suddenly, their world turned upside down. How will they get together? Will India become one again? Take an exciting journey with them from their college days in Mumbai to their life in the US and back to India when they find out that India is divided.

“An Indian lies in the eyes of the beholder…what you choose to see.

You can travel the length and breadth of India, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Mumbai to Kolkota, and not see a single Indian. You will see Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Jains, Buddhists, etc. You will see Maharashtrians, Gujaratis, UPites, Biharis, Bengalis, Tamils, Telugus, Malayalis, etc.

Or you will see Indians.”

Arjun Rawat Dear Book-lover & author,

I viewed your profile and noticed you a good book-reader and penned various books. I am too a writer and recently penned a new fiction named MUGGER. It is focused on corruption, criminalization of politics and various others problems pertaining to society. Its Hindi version too awarded by NHRC for safeguarding human rights. I would appreciate if you read my fiction and apprise me about its deficiencies so that I can make further improvement in my writing. MUGGER is available on paper-back in :- Flipkart, Infibeam, Crossword, uRead, Power-publishers etc. MUGGER will soon be available on e-book through orders.india@partridgepublishing.com.
Regards.

Arjun Singh Rawat
