About The Author: Murlidhar Srivastava is the author of the bestselling ‘Love Destiny and those two days’, a novel in which he took up a bold subjectof superstition and sensibly and interestingly handled it around a plot that revolves round the astrological predictions. The book has been appreciated as one of the most fascinating books and a different kind of a love story….

Review: The cover of the book is simple but Title and blurb attracts you to read the book. It is a story about three generations and their views and opinion and the Author had very nicely and in a simple language narrated it. It is all about loving your parents and follow their values and tradition. Similarly it identifies parents responsibilities towards their children. I loved the way the author had explained three generation love stories and what difficulties they have faced in choosing their life partner. The latter part of the story where Rittika had explained her values were beautifully narrated. I truly loved the way she had inherited the values of his parents and grand parents. The description given by each generation about their love story was beautiful and best suited to their era. As a reader I whole heartidly enjoyed reading this book. Once you started, I am sure every reader will finish it at one go without getting bored. This book had the grip of holding it’s readers till the end. Every one should read the book and enjoy the journey of Verma family of three generation. It sounds like a movie “Kal Aaj Aur Kal”. All the best Murlidhar for a nice book.
Drawback: There were some editing mistakes which needs to be rectified.
