Book Review : Gandhi With The Gun by Divyesh Dutta

Ever since I published my first Book on short stories : Journey from Guwahati to Machhiwara : I try to read mostly the new Authors .

I came across this book in one of the libraries in USA . And  when I read the Authors name & his home town Jallandhar , I was eager to read this book . In fact Jallandhar ( Punjab ) is my home town & I also did my Post Graduation in English from DAV Jallandhar years back from where this theatre artist studied .

The book has 24 chapters & 187 pages . I completed the book in less than a week & I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book .

Its a story of You , Me & Love : Jihad .

A lover is separated from the girl he loves in the name of religion . Raghav is the hero & Smyra is the other character . Their love story is weaved in an intrinsic way . There are lot of twists in the story . Gandhi with the Gun is another  character in the novel set in Varanasi .

Highlight of the book : Simple narration & unusual story line .

Tactical detail : Cover page , font size & quality of printing of book : Thums Up

Overall verdict : A Good Read : 4 Stars
