This is a short book so I would keep this review fairly short.
Undeniably love the cover and the blurb – makes me pick this book to start reading. The book deals with glaringly one or two thoughts which Jiya finds through the philosophical and profound conversation with a stranger Arjun in one of the pre-graduation parties.
What does Arjun say that makes Jiya feel alive again is the heart of this small thought-provoking book.
A dramatical version of a conversation so deep with background music that helps Jiya find her long-lasting Shangri-La – Utopia
Only let down is that there are some Hindi phrases in the book that may be a bit bothersome to Non-Hindi readers. If not, this is what I call a cute little book 🙂
Someone once said, a novel is an evolution and a short story is a revelation.
The authors are all storytellers in the best sense writers who know how to echo the truth and make it richer. They use fiction as a mirror to highpoint facets of our own lives. That is the revelation of short stories.
