The story at a glance.
The book revolves around the story of Radha Deodhar and Adi Mehta. Adi is the son of a billionaire while Radha is the daughter of a socialist and comes from middle class family. Adi is quiet, introvert and unassuming while Radha is spirited and engaging. They meet each other when they were in their teens in a very unusual circumstance and fall in love. But both of them refrain from admitting it, but every time either of them is in danger, they protect each other.
In-spite of being there together like guardian angels, they are not together because their worlds are completely different. Their goals, pursuits are different. They encounter with the different faces of life over the course of two decades emotionally and they live through hope and despair, joy and sadness, and try to decipher their relationship. As the truth of their bond is revealed, they must confront the true nature of love, and ultimately, their destinies.
To re-live the lives of Adi and Radha, to know what the destiny has in its hand for them. Get a copy of yours as soon as possible and enjoy the journey filled with deepest emotions in purest form
My View .
Before moving further with my views, I want to reveal that I have read this novel twice.
Moving on, I don’t usually read a novel based on a love story. If ever I want to read one, I always pick a Ruskin Bond because according to me he is the only author who can write love stories beautiful and filled with pure emotions. But I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Guardian Angels by Rohit Gore in the same way as I used to feel for Ruskin Bond’s books. The story has a depth and it continues throughout the book uncovering the pure layers of personality of the lead characters, slowly and steadily, in such a beautiful way that I fell in love with the characters. I must say that the ending is predictable for sure, but while flipping the pages you will indeed make a wish that it would not end the way you think and that much is the effect the book gives you. The maturity and commitment shown by the characters is worth applause. Some moments made me smile while some were filled with emotions. I always loved Rohit Sir’s work and I must say the way the characters converse with each other is brilliant and humorous. I liked the chapter where Adi and Radha communicate through e-mails. But the most important chapter I liked the most is the chapter named Radha’s Journey which is the core part of the story.
Actually I can write a complete novella describing this novel. So to be short and sweet ‘The Guardian Angels’ is a perfect novel with a wonderful and nostalgic story. If you haven’t read it yet, then get set go and grab it. My rating: 4 on 5 .
