Lauren is a young Polish woman who has a calling to music and the Harp .She is in love with Ashok and yet deeply rooted to her European heritage and torn between Ashok and her love for music .Meanwhile Ashok too is torn between his duty to his family but the oppressive Indian bureaucracy and his desire for Lauren keeps egging him to leave Indian shores and settle with Lauren .Lauren wants to move out of her oppressive communist country and chart a future in Europe .Of course there is the huge cultural difference too , they cannot make a commitment to each other as they are still unsure of their future together but keep in touch nevertheless .Meanwhile the attractive Lauren finds many suitors who try to sweep her off her feet and her parents too want her to settle with a European rather than an Indian boy .
As the story progresses,Lauren and Ashok find it difficult to keep this long distance undeclared love alive and an Indian girl named Aparna - smart , attractive and independent enters Ashok's life .
While Ashok was a well read and a lover of art ,dance ,theatre and all things fine which were resonated in Lauren's personality too , Aparna was attractive but did not share Ashok's love for the performing arts and books .Ashok's family meanwhile found it easier to accept Aparna,an Indian as their future daughter -in -law rather than a foreigner .
It does not help that Aparna too is based in California and here again distance plays a spoiler .
Matters are further complicated when a determined red blooded Italian painter Carlo starts to court Lauren .
The book has an interesting twist at the end .
Being a coming of age story, the book Harp, also takes the reader on a journey across various countries and in the midst of all these explores the social mindsets and the economic conditions in India and abroad, the challenges faced by the people and the revolutions that keep playing hide and seek with its existence.
Harp, may not be a regular love story, but it will hook onto you. It is heartbreaking for a few while comforting for others, it makes you believe in it while the simple essence of the story being truth and hope.The story of the book Harp is about the second chances one deserves, one longs for and the one wastes.
The book Harp by author Nidhi Dalmia connects the various strings of human life from love to music, travel, survival, countries, culture, reforms and existence in itself and how we humans try and hit the strings perfectly and probably that's why the name HARP!
