About the book-
What if the course of your life, and your love, is determined by just six evenings? Atul Shukla, a young, successful executive, has been arrested by the Gurgaon police. As he attempts to find some comfort in the dark confines of his cell, Atul revisits his life and the six evenings that changed its course. Eight years ago, while working in Bhopal, Atul had met the beautiful and intelligent Priya on a train, DDLJ style. When it turned out that she was in his city for only six days, he decided to woo her in that fleeting period of time. But fate had other plans in store, and Atul and Priya were torn apart by lust and betrayal, seemingly forever. Years later, Atul and Priya meet once again for six days, while they are both navigating the murky underbelly of the modern corporate world. And this time it’s not just their love at stake, but their careers, and their future as well. Will Atul and Priya manage to give love a second chance? Or will corporate greed destroy their chance for a happy ending? Just Six Evenings is a modern-day tale of love, lust and ambition in a corporate India that shines at the expense of the dreams it tramples under its feet.
Language is very simple but effective.The story of Just Six Evenings is combined with love and emotions perfectly. While reading I was able to connect with the characters. The pace of the book is also amazing.
The story starts with a person Atul Shuka who was arrested by the police. Then he suddenly starts thinking about his past life. He was average in studies and some how he manage to got a job as a sales man in Tectronics . Atul met an attractive and beautiful girl Priya on a train and suddenly he fell in love,and he mange to got the e-mail addresses of that girl. Then He created an Industrial training for Priya and Rakhi(Priya’s best friend) with the the help of his friend Ramakant in Bhopal. Then the most awaited things happens in story the girl came to Bhopal just for Six days and Atul have only six evening to impress the girl. And one evening he proposes Priya and she accepts his proposal.But their relationship ends very soon.
And after these incident there is amazing twist and turn in the story. They both met again for some business work after eight long years in Delhi and Atul becomes a very person successful in these years. They both fell in love again, and again history repeated itself. But there is an emotional and happy ending.
I like the small but effective role of Guruji in the story. The book will show you the reality of corporate world. Writing style of the author is very nice. While reading you will not feel for single time that the book is written by a debut Author. No doubt narration was fantastic. The grip was very nice and I competed the book in one go. Chapter number 9 Six days and ‘six evening ‘and chapter number 12 ‘The game begins…’ again were my favourite chapters
The book goes very deep into the technicality and some times it may irritate you. Over all a great effort by the debut Author. A must read for the fans of Indian literature. I will highly recommend it.
