Book Review for October2014 (I): I was there by Saptadeep & Mamta


Maansi, a simple village girl, trapped within the boundaries of family and honour, is in search for the answers to the queries that haunt her life. Reyaz, a medical intern, living under the burden of a complex relation, tries to understand a world that has failed to understand him. Their paths cross, but so do their stars and death seems the only escape. But what if death isn’t the end, but just the beginning of a journey that changes everything you know about yourself. Unfold the pages to embark on a soul-stirring journey of love, magic, hatred and spiritualism that winds its way through the dusty lanes of Haryana, leaving behind answers that humanity have always sought for.

Women University in 2013 and is presently in search of a new story.
