The story revolves around six friends namely Kabir, Kashish, Nijo, Rajat, Samar, Anika. The six of them met first during their college days and since then they have been friends for life. After graduating from college they get settled in their respective lives. However, they all get a chance to meet again after years in Samar and Anika’s engagement. What follows next is the true essence of the story.
A short story with clean, crisp storyline; lucid writing style; the author has played his cards pretty well. In the starting, it seems to be a casual romance, however, the end was surprising and acted like an icing on the cake. Also, the most powerful tool of the story lies in the bonding shared by the friends. Simple yet powerful story weaved with the plethora of emotions. Also, the story makes one reminisce about the good old college days and this makes it more interesting. Overall, a short story with a blend of emotions, friendship, love, and much more. Recommended to all romance lovers.
Negatives– First, I wanted to read more of romance between Kashish and Kabir. Did they got married or not? Second, the point when Kabir cancels his flight and plans to go to Mumbai along with Kashish, they stop at a certain place on the highway to talk about their relationship. This, however, according to me didn’t fit into the square as for what if they didn’t stop at that certain point? Then how could others would have reached before Kabir and Kashish.
Rest, no flaws. !!
