It is a very good book and the content reflects the real situation. I wish all students or children living away from grand parents should definitely read this book. It consists of a love story that I have not imagined in my life. Such a pure and heart touching story which is very different from all contemporary love stories, filled with romance and lust. I'm myself studying away from home, felt an urge to visit my grandparents while reading the book --By Tejasree on 27 November 2017
An emotional book. Also depicts the difference of love of yester years with current. A generic read.... wants to integrate present generation of thought with the old one and minimizing generation gap. Every one will love the the character Gopal Shanker and the noble lady Rohini. An emotional touch --By Partha pratim bose on 10 January 2018

Excerpt from the book – A Hundred Little Flames
Shivani and Ayan now had a nice little chat going back and forth. It was more than two weeks that they had been doing this. She would reply to his queries within minutes of receiving his messages. He would do the same. He learnt that she was applying for a job as a senior features editor at an architectural magazine, as one of her areas of interest was interior design. She shared pictures of a friend’s house that she had designed. It was chic and contemporary, and Ayan liked how she had done the house up. She sent more photos of a store that she had designed. He wanted to see the place where she lived. She sent him pictures of her flat which she had styled with beautiful colours and modern furniture. Her flat overlooked an empty field where donkeys grazed.
‘Donkeys, in Pune?’ he had typed.
‘Haha. They keep increasing,’ she typed back.
He sent her pictures of Thekke Madom and she admired the natural beauty of the place. She wanted more pictures. Ayan began looking for photos to click, so he could share them with her.
One day his grandfather noticed him clicking photos and typing away on his phone.
‘Ummm ummm … sending messages to your girlfriend, are you?’ he asked.
‘Isn’t she the same friend who you stayed over for, when you went to meet her?’
‘I didn’t meet her alone, muttacha! There were other people too.’ But he didn’t meet his grandfather’s eyes when he said that.
The fact was that he looked forward to his phone buzzing these days. Shivani and he were gradually developing a very good friendship over text messages. They sent each other interesting things that they came across during their day.
One evening, when Ayan returned from football, grubby and drenched in sweat, he was surprised to see a car coming up the driveway to Thekke Madom. He wondered who it could be. Velu had certainly not announced any visitors, nor had his grandfather mentioned anything.
The car stopped and the door opened. Ayan stood there, wide-eyed, gaping.
Getting out of the car was his father.
