This is a beautifully written lyrical story of not just India but a young couple whom we follow throughout the storyline. While each one of the couple, Jai and Kaahi, come from different parts of India, they fall in love, have a fabulous Indian marriage ceremony and eventually leave for the US to work.

I truly enjoyed the way the author laid out the cultural aspects, helping me to understand and enjoy Indian culture through the eyes of an Indian. Having the language dispersed throughout the storyline was ingenious and made you feel closer to the country. Also, the drawings were priceless and added a great deal of depth to the storyline...

The author has a wonderful writing style, very lyrical and flowing and I hope he/she will continue to write, as the talent is obvious...

Bravo on a good read!!

Enjoy the essence and fragrance of Indian land

India is a topic that is far too emotional for any genre specific writer. Be it a historical one or a fiction writer all have their persona reflected in their writings.

Generally speaking, writers till date have sprinkled the shower of romance in their stories with patriotism only by detailing falling in love with owns motherland. Here comes an innovative story teller who has actually managed or should I say dared to amalgamate lovey–dovey romance with patriotism.

As the title suggests, the story is about an era when OUR India was one! The story is developed on a fictional plot wherein India again succumbs to the pain of partition, one more time. This time, it is not about love across borders or across India or Pakistan; it is between North India and South India!!! The story develops around this backdrop and discusses how it affects the fate of the Indians, both residing in and outside India.

You will enjoy the essence and fragrance of Indian land, family bondages, college freak outs and ambitious future plans. You will feel the pain of separation and partition. The author’s simplistic writing style keeps you down to earth.

Though, repeated mention of Hindi translations of English words made it a little redundant but then, with such an interesting theme, it was not too hard to be ignored. Nevertheless, a page wide list should have been a smarter alternative.

I liked how he remained anchored to the basic romantic theme despite of the political ramifications which would have made the story more confusing. He laid emphasis on love angle with no distractions and he managed it fairly well.
