i'm not twenty four... - sachin garg”Ooho.. I want those shoes” was what I had in my mind looking at the cover, lovely read shoes!  I am done with reading IIT-ians same old love stories. After Chetan Bhagat’s Two States hit the bestseller level, every student started writing about his own love story and publishing. I wanted something good in Indian fiction to remember the good old days where I had enjoyed reading books from Indian authors. This book was totally refreshing!

India is a small country but every state has it’s own tradition, so normally people from one state will have problem adjusting in another state. Language, food, life style is totally different all over. Now about the book, Saumya a north Indian (Delhi) girl gets a job in South India ( Karnataka). Very rural place in Karnataka indeed, where she meets Malappa and Shubhro. Shubhro is a Indian hippie kind of person always smoking pots and roaming in Old temples of Hampi. It was supposed to be a love traigle but it’s not! There is no space for love when you are surrounded by dying people, Saumya was welcomed by blood, riots, violent bosses and cut limbs of labors. Which girl will like to stay there? But Saumya did! Will soumya survive there? What about Malappa? Will Shubhro can show who is he when he is surrounded by smoke and drinks?

I just loved this book, amazingly story sets through the end by leaving a strong feeling. I will recommend this book to people who want to read some good Indian fiction. My ratings are 4 out of 5.
