Book Listings

• "India was One" is a page turner that I wasn't able to put down. – Reader comments on Amazon.

• From the first page to the very last, I was glued to the book. – Reader comments on Amazon.

• Superb illustration seamlessly depicts the essence of the developing plot! Loved the book.... – Reader comments on Amazon.

• The author has now managed to put India on my bucket list of places to visit. I wish all my geography books had been written like this - I might have learnt more. – Reader comments on Amazon.

• If you are an Indian-American who was born in the U.S. and grew up here, you will also understand a bit more about how your parents and other extended family members from India think. Those who grew up in India will relate to the story and the characters in the story immediately. – Reader comments on Amazon.

• Reading India Was One, was like entering through a hidden portal, the reader is introduced to the rich heritage of India – Reader comments on Smashwords.

• There is growing popularity of South Asian culture and spirituality as evidenced by the growth of Bollywood, Yoga, Curry and Kirtan in the US. Bestselling books like Eat, Pray Love and The Life of PI have capitalized on that interest. In India Was One the author provides the reader with an inside view of that culture. – Reader comments on Smashwords.

• I was touched by the utterly simplistic narrative – both in style and content. It comes straight from the heart and the message is not camouflaged in a verbal cloak. – India Post Review.

• Ultimately, “India Was One” makes a statement about national identity and unity. In an age of separatism and faction, this message is becoming increasingly relevant for both Indians and NRIs – India West Review

• In places the book made me smile and in others it brought tears to my eyes. It evoked my emotions and isn't that what a good book should do? – Reader comments on Goodreads.

• I am Indian by ancestry and though I have never visited Mother India, this book paints very vivid imagery of India. – Reader comments on Goodreads.

Where I Live
Cypress, CA, USA
…Suddenly, he saw something shiny at the bottom of the abyss. He squinted his eyes to see what it was. He ran back to his binoculars and turned them to see what it was. Sharp barbed wires that separated the two mountains came into focus. He had come as far as he could in his country. But she was standing in another country.

He was in South India and she was in North India…

Have you ever imagined India being divided into two countries? What happens to the millions of Indians who are from South India but are now residing in North India? Kaahi & Jai were two such people who got trapped in this situation. Everything was going smoothly for them and suddenly, their world turned upside down.

How will they get together? Will India become one again?

Take an exciting journey with them from their college days in Mumbai to their life in the US and back to India when they find out that India is divided.
