Down-the-road.jpg

28 Campus Tales by 16 Authors!! This the first interesting line to catch your eyes.Edited by Ahmed Faiyaz and Rohini Kejriwal, the book “Down the Road” is a collection of  28 Campus Tales by 16 Authors.If this is not enough to read, the book provides 2 essays on Campus, Fiction on Campus by Sonia Safri, and Bollywood on Campus by Aseem Rastogi. When I first laid my hands on Down the Road, I for sure had a quick flashback of my childhood memories.This was a reason good enough to indulge myself reading this book religiously from page to page. When I flipped through the content of this book, I was more than assured of the flashbacks I will have of my childhood while reading these stories. This medium thick book is a mixture of emotions, all combined in this bundle of papers.There are moments of sweet memories, sometimes remembering your childhood’s bitter moments,sometimes laughing on an old joke or just sighing over the days…Gone with the Wind. The first feeling of butterflies, when that someone “suddenly” special passing by you, or coming in your vicinity.The newly developed feelings of having a crush on someone.The biggest sorrow being a teenager, Heartbreaks! This brings down few very tangy memories, which are both sweet and sour. Reading Down the Road by Ahmed Faiyaz, I remember my 1st every crush in life.The mixed emotions of happiness, nervousness and fear all jumping in my belly as if having a circus. Suddenly this puppy love become serious.You have heartbreaks, cheats, gossips, the hot buzz and rumors.Some are to laugh at, some are to gross at, and some become history.The feelings are multiple but the heart is one.All this has been well said in Rishi and Me by Ira Trivedi.The feeling of being loved and feeling special, the hatred of being cheated …
