The plot revolves around Meera Mishra who is a medicine graduate. Her simple middle class life goes through a lot of ups and downs; when her paths meet the path of Aman Sharma, a P.G senior.
The story deals with the turmoil in Meera's living when she is pulled into a conflict which wasn't even related to her , her suffering because of the filth fattened up in the hearts of the corrupted doctors in authority and caste based politics.
Aman Sharma and Abhay Bharti, the two men who leave their footprints in her journey. One with her and the other away from her.
You just need to read and find out who is who.
In the beginning of the book, thete is a debate about educational system being based on merit or reservation. The readers will be able to relate to it because that's the current issue, whether we should be paying for something our ancestors did generations ago or is it time for it to stop .
The prologue creates the anticipation in the reader as he/she will stick to the end to find it out. The story is not predictable at all - making it a postive aspect.
The fact that Meera is in love with Aman is confusing, because how Meera developed feelings for him was never mentioned.
Despite being the re-edited version, the book does have errors.
The book at its start gives hope to the reader that the book has a cause, it isn't just a story about a girl, it is much more than that. Alas, it is just the story of the girl, beautifully written though.

The author has taken a great step to showcase one of the evils of the 21st century India – caste based reservation. It is a system that has been in place for years and even though it is now outdated, people still hold on to it. Politicians use it as a means to fill up their vote banks, officials use it as a means to earn some extra income and certain non-qualified people use it to gain employment. If you really think about it, the system is not helping those in need at all and at the same time causes a lot of people with merit to miss out on opportunities, which in turn is pulling the country back. I admit that I do not completely agree with the author about how she has treated the subject, but I cannot deny that it is one of the biggest problems of our present society. Thanks to the author for bringing it out in the open.
The characters in the story had some promise. Meera for instance, is a strong girl. She realizes that something wrong is happening and does what she can about it. But at the same time, this was in a way a journey of self-discovery for her and as such she did make some mistakes and then learnt from it – which made her more human and easier to relate to. I loved her parents more though. Her father is everything that a girl needs in her life; someone to count on for support and some to glean off some wisdom from. Her mother is what most mothers are like – loving, caring, overbearing, irritating and absolute darling, all wrapped up in one. As for Aman and Abhay, they are poles apart – yet they have an important role to play in Meera’s life. I do not think that Meera would be who she is at the end of the story without either one of them.
The book is not all doom and gloom and not all sunshine either. Lie real life, it has a bit of both just like it has things that I liked and things I did not like about it. Here’s the deal – I liked that the author has taken up a serious issue as the base of her plot for her debut novel. I truly appreciate that. But then the love triangle was overdoing it. The relationships seemed very abrupt and as such the growth wasn’t captured well enough. The plot, like the characters, held some promise too. Only it was not cultivated to its complete potential. The pacing of the story could also have been better as it really lagged in the middle.
This is a book that can possibly be either a hit or a miss, depending upon the individual reading it. If you are someone who is tired of run off the mill campus love stories, you can surely take a chance with this.
