The wheel of time is a fascinating force.
Author: Sujay Malik
The Sameness In A Consistent Change by Sujay Malik is a story of Ramanuj, a boy from a small village. How Ramanuj’s life changes after he meets Mr Shrirangpure.
The plot of the story is interesting with some twists. The narration of the story is good but could have been much better. It’s a story of 42 pages. I wish the author could have been some more details. one can relate to the story from the very first page.
I liked the way the author sequenced every event. The plot switches between the past and present which sometimes made it a bit tedious read. The pace of the story is good. The flow of the story is smooth. I liked the message that the author conveyed at the end.
The language used by the author is simple and easy. The writing style of the author is crisp. I liked the cover and the title of the book. The blurb is too long. The author added various themes like loss, frustration, anger to made the story more interesting.
I wish the story could have been more developed. The story has a good message. It’s a light and a quick read.

The wheel of time is a fascinating force. Sometimes it seems to only crawl along, while at other times it simply hustles. And when you tend to look behind, you expect that most puzzles would fall in place. But do they eventually?
Ramanuj, a village boy is confused about most things. He shares a strange rapport with his father, who, despite financial issues doesn’t stall his education. But Ramanuj has no idea what to do with himself.
Then one day things change and change permanently. There is no looking back from this bend; there cannot be. He meets Mr. Shrirangpure, through a chance meeting in a hospital through his daughter Pallavi. Something prompts him to appear more ambitious than he would like to have been.
Impoverished and submissive, he manages to rise above the shackles with time, even though everything is still stuck to his past. But now he cannot get back. He doesn’t want to. Until a revelation, prompts him to go back to his roots again. To the same tree, with which he shares a bond; to the drain water, with which he has shared many a memory; and to the same surrounding, which formed his core once.
This is a story of a boy who tried to end his life once. He loved as well and tried to rise to a level to become worthy of it. A boy, whose journey is all about mostly looking back.
‘The Sameness in a Consistent Change’ is a story of this interesting journey. A journey, devoid of a destination, perhaps. But the fun, sometimes, lies only in the journey.
