A sense of achievement runs down my whole being at the completion of this book..introduced by R.K. Narayan. Tremendously captivating, about a tender love story that flourished during the struggle to attain freedom. A young, confused and aimless lad brought up by his grandmother falls in love with a naive, orphan girl. The desire to own her chalks out his dstiny… and unwittingly he involves himself in the political movement. How finely the thoughts have been conceived during the times, when people noticed the national leaders and overlooked thousands who attempted in their own capable ways to free our country from the clutches of british rulers.

I salute and shall respect all of them who have left no stone unturned, pained themselves and sacrificed their loved ones to enable us a free nation.
