The travelogue is filled with different flavors as the character enjoyed lovely time with his beloved in Canada, a wonderful country in the world but Indian say it is second Punjab in the world.
This semi-autobiographical novel blurs the boundary between fiction and memoir. This is one of the art of the writing of the fiction which makes one believe that is the story of readers. The author has been able to keep readers spell bound throughout the novel. The use of simple narrative in the novel makes it enjoyable by all readers. The novel is a wonderful portrayal of the life and adventures of those in the global offshoring industry. This story will surely appeal to those interested in understanding the mind of an Indian immigrant, and to those interested in embracing Indian culture.
After reading the novel, I found it to be a fitting bounce back from harsh and cruel world of today. The author has written this novel in a vivid manner with due clarity. The short book is almost a metaphor for the life of the baby Surya, infinitely precious in its words but brief in its time. The author manages to show the idea that pain, while part of life, does not define us, and presents us with the opportunity to dig deep into the things which really matter - love, family, core values, etc. - to find the courage to be transformed, change, and persevere despite the scarring.
The reader will be able to experience the whole spectrum of human emotion -- humor, joy, love, hope, sorrow, shock, anger and ultimately revelation. These emotions are interwoven with fascinating revelations about various parts of the world, such as Switzerland, Canada, India, and parts of the United States in a form which makes readers keep his/her eyes glued to pages of the novel.
What I will like to conclude about this novel is that it is well-written, well-structured and apart from Raj and Priya’s story, it contains interesting facts about today’s world, as experienced professions who move from one city to other and even from one country to other spanning continents. This is a classical explanation of the joys and plight of youths working in multinational companies who move from homeland to other countries and experience different cultures and lifestyles.
Kudos to author!
