  • Characters (Leads):

2. Megha- Raghav’s love

  • Blurb:

Every journey begins with a chase. We chase success. We chase love. We chase happiness. But what happens when that chase is suddenly interrupted by a long wait? Will love endure that wait? And will that wait ever end? Will all roads be closed? Or will an uneasy path open up somewhere?

Rainy Days is the story of Raghav and his pursuit of love in the midst of success, of Megha and her own world of wavering thoughts. It’s a journey that begins with a chance encounter. It’s a journey that takes them through sweet meetings and doleful partings, through long drives and silent walks, through the endless rain of joy and melancholy — a journey that inevitably brings them to the crossroads of love and life, more than once. It’s about the choices that life gives us, about the paths that we take, and the ripple effect that it has on our lives.

  • Review-

“Rainy Days”, a love story, revolves around Raghav and Megha. They meet during a cricket match in a stadium and Raghav falls in love with at first sight. He follows her, finds out her work place and so on. Then follows a series of cute love episodes one would expect in a love story. And one day Megha leaves, suddenly, leaving just a letter behind, promising to meet Raghav after 5 years. She does keep her promise and meet him, only for the story to take a sudden turn and rip everything apart.

The book also involves Raghav’s work, RS3, a social website, which is his and his friends’ invention. The way they start from scratch, searching for investors, and finally become a 500 employee company. Their core value of doing only the right things, is followed throughout, but once Raghav has to surpass it for Megha, and he does so. The end will leave you shocked.

  • Appreciations:

Great philosophical thoughts have been portrayed which will make one understand themselves and know the right things in life. Perfect grammar was a treat while reading. The flow has been maintained pretty well and the sudden twists and turns in the plot are a delight to the reader.

  • Let-downs:

Nothing to be criticized. Good work Samarth 🙂

  • Verdict:

Not a surely recommended one, but definitely a good read. (3/5)
