Blurb from the book
Would you give up your high-paying job and comfortable personal life to drive ten thousand kilometers across india? Just for fun!
Three twenty-somethings 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 roadtrip.
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.
This is a travel story revolving around 3 friends, Abhay, Sashank and Unnati, who have decided to go roadtripping across India, covering 25 states. During their journey, Abhay recorded their entire journey on a handy cam and Unnati gave voice over for his short film.
This is very adventurous, yet lighthearted and funny. The characters are beautifully drawn, relatable and realistic.
The details about different places seems like the author did his part of research pretty well.
As they move on with their journey, they go through difficult and mesmerizing experiences, such that you would want to go on a trip just like this one!
As we move forward, we discover things about the characters, and how their story will come to conclusion keep the book interesting.
All in all, this is a short book, perfect for travelers, or basically anyone who loves to read a light, yet fun filled story with the right amount of humor in it!
