About the author: Nikhil Kushwaha, an engineer, poet and a novelist, has already entertained his readers in his first book Six Teen Mistakes. A Ranchi boy, schooling from Bishops School and Kendriya Vidyalaya, is a graduate from NIST Berhampur, as an electrical engineer. Being author by chance and a full time author now, he says that it is not necessary to have experience, degree or talent to be an author, but what’s required, is a story, passion and some patience. Believing in realism, his novels are based on what he witnesses around the people he knows, the things he has experienced and a story he wants the world to tell.

Sometimes, nothing could be done when fate wants a payback. Explore to experience the clouds of love, soft, beautiful but dark in the waning phase, when fate interrupts.

Review: Priya comes to Nikhil’s hometown to attend her cousin’s wedding and also to know the rest his love story. We are aware that shreya died in the first part of the book, this book talks about the timeline of events and how shreya dies.  This story gives a feel of happy ending but the tragic end is surprising. There are many hearts touching moments in the book. The author pace and craft, above all content of the fiction, made us feel it’s a very close to all of our hearts. It is a must read for the people who believe in true love. The poems again but are used less, the narrative as in the first book was, very simple and easy to understand. If you are eager to read the continuation of the first book read this book just to know what happens after first part.

About the Author

I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
