Accompanying him on this journey are his personal demons, some ghosts of the past and few random memories of the near future with his loved ones. One day he reaches a stage where he doesn’t know if he will be able to live or not. Can the world be a single country? Will they be able to take this mission from a closed room to a goal post? What circumstances are they going to face? How will their journey be?

SumitOfficial’s Review:

It is a great story I read after a long time which is completely based upon revolutionary concept; Can the world be a single country? We have heard and talked about it a lot but couldn’t do anything about it. We think, there is nothing in our hands. Isn’t it? The book is based on that only with loads of twists and turns. And also it a unique topic because it is always easy to describe the things which we can see in our daily life, but it really takes guts to write about something which is not in existence.wp-1492772406145.

I can describe the story or scenes here but that would be an injustice to your imaginations when you will read the book. All I can say for now is, the entire book will make you remember the thing you and I have been doing so far in our lives. The book is an amalgamation of innocent love, politics, suspense, motivation, and the most important part is the climax. Did he able to make the mission complete? Well, I’d suggest you find out by reading the book.

Favourite Quotes from the book-

You don’t get motivated when you see all the people are lethargic around you or people around you skip or linger in their work. You do not get motivated when the people, despite having resources, fails to go ahead and achieve their dreams but when you see an old man having a bucket full of bricks on his head and walking on the street to earn livelihood despite the heat of the weather with his feet burning, you get motivated.

There is no crime as heinous as killing. Unfortunately, almost everyone does it, Some kill time, some relationship, some beliefs, some trust, some people, and some themselves. You should try and not be a killer! Mark it! You should never try to be a killer, and when you are not one, whatever you will become, everyone will be proud of you.
