. . . he is the son of a billionaire, she is the daughter of a socialist. . . . he is quiet and unassuming, she is a firebrand and spirited.
However, the unexplained phenomena ties them forever – whenever they are in peril, they are each other’s only saviours. Over the following two decades Adi and Radha live through hope and despair, joy and sadness, and try to decipher their relationship. As the truth of their bond is revealed, they must confront the true nature of love, and ultimately, their destinies.
Review: The story is about Adi and Radha and their journey of their lives divided into 4 age sets. Adi and Radha meet during their childhood days and an unusual bonding brings them close. Their first meet remains cherished. Adi is rich and Radha a middle class person. They live in analogous world with chalk and cheese ideas. Radha inspired by her father finds interest in socialism. Adi sees himself playing for the Indian cricket team. The relation between them is real and dealt well. Both the characters have put in well. They stand for each other in every phases of life. With unanticipated twist and turns, the author has made the book very out of the ordinary read. The ripeness of Adi and Radha in each segment was well realized by his writing.
The book was received as part of Reviewers Programme on The Tales Pensieve.
