A walk down memory lane. For those who have passed out from their college, this book is a nice nostalgia ride and for those still living it or yet to experience those days, this is a relatable one or the one to prepare them for the coming days of their life.

What I liked about the book:
—> It’s so light on the mind and relatable.
—> The poetic lines in between the dialogues and narrations.
—> Each memory and experience is and will be relatable for the Indian reader.
—> Tells us that friends and the moments spent with them are what school and college life memorable.

what I did not like about the book:
—> It felt more like reading someone’s personal diary.
—> There was a chapter about the current status of the characters which felt like it should have been continued later on and told us about what is happening in the lives of the characters now.

Quotable quotes:
—> He was quiet, but not out of painful shyness. It was a reservedness, like a conscious choice to observe the life of the land before he got involved.
—> Meeting someone new is a divine pleasure. Regardless of how things turn out, the most important idea is to be able to get a true feeling for who they are over a few weeks and months without ever forming an opinion of them.
—> It is the force of double ‘f’ that drives us towards the canteen. Food and friends.
—> Food does that, right? It feeds the soul, brings smiles and bonds, makes everything so much better.
—> When the night comes, look heavenward and be willing to see that the stars still shine; for the dawn will come.
—> Made with a melange of exotic spices and ingredients, Indian street food is one of its kind.
—> The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
