Every moment of Rahul Gite’s childhood has been etched with strange stories; untold stories from the dark and dreary lanes of thriving Shantinagar slum in Bombay. Written by nameless faces out of the thrust for survival these are stories of hate, love, greed and belief. But everyone hates them; they bring us face to face with life – off guard and will-less.
Then there is Ryan Davis enjoying the ancient stories of myths and legends from his parents, sitting in the drawing room of a well furnished apartment in Sagamihara, Japan – the land of hope. Life in Sagamihara has been nothing short of a fairy tale; streets bathing in the beautiful pink cherry blossoms, autumn leaves floating at the mystical Lake Sagami and gigantic kites magnificently soaring in skies during the Sagami Giant Kites Festival. Life has become a story soaked in fantasy leaving Ryan longing for more. One day by happenstance, Rahul and Ryan meet each other at the crossroads of life. Will they have to let go the stories they have cherished?
"...I was curious to explore more as the story progressed. The poems seemed to be raw and fresh from crude thoughts which is felt close to one's heart in its most unrefined form before all the decorative elements are added to make it 'look' like a poem.
All in all the book had nice twist and turns and plot beautifully explained. The writer has a subtlety in his narrating style like a seasoned writer, in his representation of thoughts and combining both which appealed to me the most.
Thank you so much for this beautiful gift I definitely take away a lot of wonders and perceptions from it. Cherish it a lot...definitely a heart-warming read."
