Twenty five years worth of 'what ifs' and 'if onlys' have haunted and tortured Vinay. He cannot help but go back in time again and again to that one moment that changed his life forever. A chance encounter with a person from his past, and a journey through the majestic hills of Kalimpong lead him to some of his answers, in the form of an elusive woman, who bears a striking resemblance to the woman he loved and lost. Will he finally get his happily-ever-after? Or will his story, tarnished when he was nineteen by the gotra system, forever be punctuated with too many fullstops? Read on to find out more.

But the love affairs having become known to Manu, Manju’s repressive brother and through him their families, the issue became serious and arrangements were being made for Manju’s engagement to another guy whom she disliked to the core. At this point of time, Vinay and Manju hatched a plan to elope to Delhi. Vinay’s mother was the only soul, who stood by her son’s decision, but she was not bold enough to voice her views openly. They met at the railway station, but to their dismay, Manu and his team were after them. Though they put up stiff fight with courage, luck was not in their favour and in the melee both of them were parted and travelled to different destinations. Fortunately their lives were spared, thanks to the intervention of people travelling in the same trains.
After long twenty five years Vinay and Manju met quite unexpectedly in a hill station and they tried to pick up the lost threads of their life. They returned to their village and saw that the people opposed to their union were old and frail and found repenting for their mistakes. Thus Vinay who went to the hill station to write a story ended up inventing his own life story.
The invisible walls built by men in the name of religion, caste, creed etc, are maddening people. The message is clear and the positive ending gives the readers a good feel. The transformation of Vinay from a frail, shy village lad to an accomplished writer is told brilliantly and convincingly. The portrayal of characters in the story is distinctive. The story teller in Neelam makes the readers gripped in the amazing story line, twists and happenings with simple narratives. Nowhere the author employs jargons just for the sake of it. ‘In the Flickering Of An Eye’ is a book worth your personal collection of books.
The adolescent love of Vinay and Manju undergoes a lot of hurdles to achieve their love. They lived in Dhanoi where a boy and girl of same gotra were not allowed to marry. The protagonist have freshness in their approach and are not sterotypical. Vinay is not a male chauvinist and on the other hand Manju is confident and courageous. Even in rural ambiance, modern sensibility has been exposed by the author. In the end its vinay and manju's love which finally unites them expressing love even lost, lasts forever and has enough strength to find it back.
Various shades of life has been knitted by the author in a single story. The beautiful narration keeps the readers engrossed and engaged till the end.
It stirs your mind and compels you to think, why can't two persons who love each other can lead their life according to their own wish ? Why it is so that those people who are not at all concerned with the happiness of the young hearts get to decide their fate?
It's such a mesmerising narration of the tale of two hearts....!
Separation follows elopement . A separation of twenty five long years ! Then the circumstances conspire in their favour ,consequently , they again meet in the sylvan surroundings of Kalimpong .and smiles again come back into their lives .
The characters are finely delineated, the story line taut , the language impressive . Sprinkled with many twists and turns , the novel makes for interesting reading . Through the book , the writer has managed to cock a snook at all regressive mindsets
.It is indeed a captivating read . Waiting for more from the prolific pen of the author .
