Love, romance, thrill, devastation, intrigue and many more emotions are encountered as you flip the pages of this unique compilation of exaggerated
episodes of Suketu’s life. Five is a real near saga of nostalgia. The mother and her sacrifices, the tragedy of the lunatic cousin, the half expressed love story, roller coaster of Karans struggles and more.
The mixed platter of Suketu’s experiences thrills, mystifies, and stimulates the appetite of the reader for more.
The diverse stories of this book are enjoyable for their structure and their characters, and they are the fruit of Kapadia’s ability to observe the people around him. They are real people, and real lives, and for this reason their stories will live on for long and readers will enjoy this book many years from now.
The stories are also shot through with a sense of mystery and wonder about the human being and about the modern world. Kapadia extends to fiction the thinking of the early 20th-century writer Alexis Carrell, whom Kapadia has evidently read with great attention.

About the author:
The author has written articles in his mother tongue Gujarati which were published in local and Mumbai based dailies (Janmabhoomi Pravasi, Divya Bhaskar & Gujaratmitra). He is a first timer, a debutante for his this fictional work in English language. An English fiction work “The Deadly Invitation” is in progress.
The author feels any great creator has to be a first timer, beginning is inevitable.
