Satya is a riveting Hindi romance novel, written by Satyendra Singh Apurna. The tagline of the novel means ‘your company is incredibly reliable and true’ (Tuhara Saath Hi Shashvath Hai). As the novel opens up, we see Shobha and Aniruddha in Agra somewhat in a denial mode. The bone of contention is that Shobha and Aniruddha were friends since an early age and later fell for each other. One of the strong reasons is that they share a common big house, under different parents. However, they are too early to decide the future of their love story. It becomes clear that Aniruddha’s parents may not accept Shobha as a new family member.
Hold on…the story has just begun. The time they are talking about marriage and future is just immediately after their school. Thus, in pursuit of good education, both departs, and choose different ways. They are from Agra.
Before Shobha could be seen back in the story, the author takes us to an engineering college in Pantnagar. And there the lead of the novel Satya is being introduced to all. He is handsome, NDA dropout, but heartbroken due to past love affair. Anyway, we found that Satya is just a way off any typical engineering students in a few ways; otherwise he is a chain smoker and lives on his own.
The author has focused a lot by showing Satya and his idiosyncrasies in detail. It takes some time to connect Satya with the main stream love story. Well, soon Sobha joins the same engineering college. She is junior to Satya. Here onwards, regular college difficulties and circumstances bring both close and together. Before they develop feelings for each other – a lot goes through in the form of prank, campus politics, and other unspeakable issues.
The novel is purely back dropped against the college campus. Shobha initially has tough days in the college from teachers and a few seniors. To her rescue when Satya intervenes, she learns a lot about acceptance and loss in life from him.
There is some dark yet mysterious aura around Satya. Why is he so weird and different and afraid of love? Why did he protect Shobha from many and what sort of inspiration he lays out for her? What happens to Satya in the end? Did their love story see happy days or succumb to the dark tricks of time and fate? To know the inside story, one must pick up this amazing Hindi romance novel. It’s beautifully set in those days when college used to be so fun with less modernity and gadgets around.
