Soul Seekers by Neelam Chandra brings forward a collection of emotions through this book. As it simply unfolds, readers come to know about how the lives of simple people engaged in day-to-day responsibilities and frivolities manage and look over their love fates.
Pia, a modern girl, has everything handy to say that her life is comfortable and good going. However when her exploration for love and its allied affairs commenced, she begins getting the jolts of depression and failures so much that her past becomes start haunting her. This debilitates her confidence in life and as an upshot she becomes wary of things that look like love affairs, stuff like love-at-first-sight or infatuation.
But that is not going to be the case for always. Thus, Yatin once a favourite guy in her life, as they were ready to take off in the plane of love, the gentleman disappears abruptly, for that he has some quite serious peculiar reasons of his own in life. Modern love stories are always devoid of veracity – because people don’t wait forever – they move on. But then she meets Mita – she proves to be a friend in need. That eases off some gruesome anxiety but doesn’t eliminate the pain. In a nutshell, Yatin and Pia were doomed to part away.
The book makes a love triangle entwined among three characters when Pia meets Atul, another good guy, after Yatin’s disappearance. It’s a good take on romance and relationships – and most importantly how destiny plays around love to test it. Unarguably, Pia, ravishing and with unforgettable past, is the cynosure of the plot. Her running into Atul and Yatin, over a broken stretch of time not only befuddles her but also impels her for something extraordinary.
The poignant notch about this book is the coverage of the grim realities of the Indian societies. When Pia loses her parents, her brother refuses to help and support her, rather discards her as a burden. The book is lovely with credible, lonely characters and later forms a very interesting and concerned plot. Above all, it is a compelling read.
