I have received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review so at first I would like thanks him. India is often termed as a country having ‘unity in diversity’. This is the only country which has multiple religions and languages. Each region has its own significance. Where all these makes India, a multicultural country. However many a time this becomes the main reason of riots and disturbance. The author has weaved the story around this issue. Let’s dwell more into this book.
The book starts with Jai and Kaahi. Both are standing in different India a north India and a south India. They are trying to convey their love and profusely yearning for each other.
Then the story moves to the past where Kaahi aka Kahani meets Jai in the college canteen. Jai’s friends are from all over India. They all have a very good bonding. Soon Kaahi and Jai and starts loving each other and after the graduation, they got married.
Jai’s father told him to settle in the US for some time as they have a company over there. Jai and Kaahi move to US and thing were swift and perfect. They visited many places and get to know many cultures. Jai meets various Indian citizens and understood India more.
Everything was like a fairy tale until the news comes that the India has been separated into two countries. North India and South India. Kaahi and Jai get terrified as both of their parents belong to different newly formed India. Panicked, they fly back to different India to meet their parents.
Then something happens, which makes Kaahi and Jai apart from each other. The only enemy is now the border.
Will India ever become one? Will Kaahi and Jai able to meet each other? If yes then How? Read this book to know further.
The language is easy and narration is smooth making you read this book in a pace.
The concept of this book is very good. However, I think the story could have been stronger. Almost 70% of the book talks about Kaahi, Jai and their places to visit whereas the main part of this book is wind up abruptly. I didn’t feel any connection with any of the characters, which I always look in a book. I wish the author would have given more account of the separated India because that part is really heart throbbing and hooked me till the end.
Witnessing the current turmoil in the country, India need to be one otherwise the day is not far when such thing can occur in reality. The author has tried to give a very neat message through this book.
