About the book-
Would you give up your high-paying job and comfortable personal life to drive ten thousand kilometres across India? Just for fun!Three twenty-something’s dare to do just that! While the two boys take turns to drive, the girl gives voice-over as they record their entire journey on a handy cam.Ab, Sasha and Unnati are ordinary youngsters, rendered special by the feat they accomplish. As they recount their adventures, I crave to live their journey. They look at each other with a glint in their eyes, as if refurbishing those memories while narrating their spooky time at Bhangarh Fort, strange escapades at Wagah Border and Sundarbans, car breakdowns, wild animals, near-death experiences and highway robbers! It’s nothing less than crazy.
I doubted if I’d ever have the gumption to create such experiences. So I did the next best thing – I penned a book about them and their road trip.
Colorful Notions is a journey of three young hearts on the Indian terrain and into the inner recesses of their souls, giving a new perspective to relationships, love and life.

The book was perfect from start to end. The chapters were short, clean and named very well, and yes most important thing chapters were interesting too.
