This is the second book I am reading of author Mr. Vikrant Khanna and currently, I like his story narration style and waving. The author has done a marvelous job here by creating a new type of story concept. The use of language and story plotting is far better. Few lines are there which touch me, like “Thousands of good deeds makes a miracle”. Once again someone convinces me that when you are in love you can do anything. At initial stage may be you found a little bit normal story but keep patience and go through the book, the more you move into the character the more it holds you. This is the potential of an author how he holds the reader to complete the book. Thanks again to bring such a lovely story in front of us.
