Earlier, I did find it tough. Well, this month, this year has been a tough one. I am picking up more light reads this month and I am enjoying them.
Taking readers down the memory lane, with a backdrop of Shimla, the Rugged journey is a story of Friendship, love and nostalgia. It’s the story of Aayush who fell in love with Anantya, the new girl in the class.
To be friends with her Aayush finds ways and he found one when the trip to Shimla was announced. Can he convince his parents for the trip? Will he be able to express his thoughts to Anantya?
It’s a sweet little story, a quick read that will remind you of your college days, and your first love. A saga from an Indian family, with siblings’ love, lots of drama, and a tale of love and friendship.
With a simple and interesting plot, Abhiraj takes us to the life of an Indian Family, sibling’s love and college days. The narrative is good, descriptive and to the point. The simplicity in his writing style makes one relate to the book more. I loved the friendship part most where Aayush’s friends helped him in every way, Anantya and Sucheta’s bond and of course everything about the trip.
The characters are good but would have loved it more if there were some more twists and more fun. I liked Anantya’s and Sucheta’s characters the most. And of course Aayush’s efforts too!
It’s a good, easy read that will surely remind you of your college days and the time spent with friends. A light, delightful read.
The Sun peeped through the window, it was not cold, but I felt. A little later but sooner, I discovered that I was in love. But with whom? I knew it; it was Anantya, a new admission girl in our school. Her eyes, eye brows have turned me up crazy. But the question still stay, how will I say that to her? didn’t have any friends who are experts and would guide me on my way to propose her but I had two losers with me. Both are always giving me taunts at every moment of my life. But one person who supported me on this journey was my didi (sister) Wouldn’t it be so desperate if go and directly say “I love you” or would she feel comfortable? These questions scratched my mind all day. Now what have to do is to go and express my feelings. Would I be able to tell her in this bright moonlight of Shimla, this deserted road beside these closed shops and these voiceless footsteps?
