Summary Of The Book
Anirudh Hirani is an economics graduate from St. Stephen's College, Delhi, and Aparajita Pinto is an IIT graduate from Goa. Like a typical Delhi boy, he is rich and rides a Ducati, while she hails from a middle class family and belongs to a different religion.
The differences hardly matter, though, as the two meet and instantly fall in love. They get married and their life together runs smoothly and happily, till the 26/11 Mumbai attacks happen.
Aparajita is trapped inside the Taj Hotel with a friend. Anirudh is devastated when he tries to maintain contact with her and, when he can no longer speak to her, tries desperately to get some news about her. The story switches between time lines and goes back and forth, and readers are exposed to their happy past and their life together, along with the terrifying present that unfolds through the eyes of the media.
The author has written the story in an easy and contemporary style, and the characters and situations are realistic.
