Shlok Kulkarni, an architect by day and an Assassin's creed junkie by night is being bombarded with eligible girls by his matchmaking mama. In a bid to escape her and maybe check out a few hot girls while he’s at it, Shlok flees to Delhi, where a massive protest for the Lokpal Bill has been building up.
Kaveri Gokhale has been searching for a cause her whole life. When the winds of the Lokpal blow through the country, she eagerly catches the next train to Delhi to witness history.
When Shlok runs into Kaveri at Jantar Mantar, the sparks are undeniable. As their relationship blossoms, Kaveri discovers a dark secret that leaves her devastated . . . and endangers the fate of billion others. Will Shlok and Kaveri’s love wither or will it withstand the uncertainties of the corrupt politics? Can love truly conquer all ideologies?

I'm not interested in politics at all, though I did take part in Lokpal protests last year which is why I was curious when I heard of this book. Thanks to RC team, I received my copy in two days.
What I loved about this book was the flow in Pooja's writing style. As soon as I read the first line I couldn't stop. The ease and the fluency made me complete the whole book in one go! Hats off!
About the story, umm, the character of Sholk I can relate with as our thinkings are somewhat alike. Plus the lokpal movements and the entire scenario of politics has been described well. Being a guy who is not into politics at all, it gave much insight. Too good a story, I must say!
