Hailing from a middle-class family, Pankaj believes that his life is all sorted - get an engineering degree; marry the love of his life, Riya; and settle down for a happily ever after in Delhi. But when Riya decides to go abroad for further studies, his plan goes for a toss. Still determined to keep to the plan, he promises to wait for her.
After settling in Jamshedpur, though, he becomes close to his boss' daughter, Kajal, and starts assisting in her social work. In the midst of the changing economic and religious environment of India in the 1990s, he undertakes a journey which gives him not only a peek into rural life but also a new and focused perspective on life and love.
Love Side by Side not only gives a glimpse of India in the '90s but also demonstrates why sometimes the failure of a well-laid-out plan can be the best thing to happen in life.

Love and loving

This is a sensitively written book about a young man’s recognition of his real love. But more than that I liked the way this story wove in wider social economic cultural and political issues in an otherwise quite short story — novella really. Well done!
