Gist of the story:

Salil loves a shadow which transforms into many characters to reveal the secrets of life. Aalya, his neighbor, is doing research in English literature. Her guide Seema is a childless lesbian. Paul, husband of Seema, is a drama director. I am the protagonist, who coins philosophies for day to day events and my wife Sulekha is the second protagonist who makes coincidences happen with her artful manipulations. Read on to learn what happens when....

My view: 

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is really a great story and good book. Actually the author has just mustered all his philosophical ideas, various thoughts about relationship and society through this story. I think the story is interesting and is plotted in a surprising way. At the same time it's little bit mysterious.

I love this book :
. All the characters are impressive.
. The story is thought provoking and that's why I found it interesting.
. The finishing is excellent. When all were ready to put down the screen, suddenly the author came with a creative motif and it completely changed the story. At the same time he left with another subject(Coincidence) for all the readers to think about it.
I love those books and the authors who come with different angles for a subject and suddenly leave for the readers to ponder on it and have their own views.
. I liked various thoughts and ideas of author for society, youth, relationship etc. I love the way he depicted the deficiency in marriage life.

It's a good story. So you will enjoy it without any doubt.
