A very good attempt of an emotional saga which was thrilling to the end.
The journey of the protagonist, Atharva Rathod through the stages of love is akin to the journey of Philips in Somerset Maughan’s ‘ Of Human Bondage’.
Like Philips, Atharva’s conviction in his love towards Meher transcends the repeated betrayals by her. However, the perseverance of Atharva brings out the reciprocative action on her part.
The early romance at the school level between Atharva and Rathod is quite commonplace and yet, that it could have been a sustainable factor in shaping up the plot in an espionage saga was wonderful,
Another interesting factor of the story was that even though the protagonists were of different religious background i.e., Atharva was Hindu and Meher was Muslim, yet the religious barrier was not the cause of their separation. In fact, there has been no role-play of Artharva’s parent in this matter. The objection of Meher’s parents to the continuance of this relationship was more on ground of practical incompatibility as they wanted her to pursue her career rather than getting stuck up in an unproductive relationship. On these grounds even Meher’s short-lived romantic feelings got evaporated as she chose to write-off Atharva so completely.
The quick turn of events sustained the interest in the story
AN OVERALL GOOD READ.
