Manoj has time and again proved that life isn't only about simple/worldly pleasures but it consists of various other components. This book is a revelation of the same.
The story revolves around Samar Bhatnagar, Sanjaneka and Varun Agarkar who comes to THC with various ailments - both physically and mentally. Each had their own woes and were not able to face it with the same intent, after they get treated in THC.
The book talks in detail about sex, desire to have one, gay relationship, expectations and betrayal in great detail. The surprise element of the story is connection between Sanjaneka and Varun through another person. Who that person is and what connects them is something you need to find out by buying this book.
The story is aligned real perfect with various incidents and it needs patience to read in full as it is not a thriller. The book still appealed to me for the simple fact that it talked in great detail about the human psychology which is the need of the hour.
The main characters of the story Samar, Sanjaneka and Varun came to THC to cure their ailment and become friends on a lunch table. The book unfolds their life story and reason of their ailment – physical and mental. They are running from their past, fighting with the present and wants peace in future. Surprisingly, Sanjaneka and Varun are connected to each other by their relation to the other person and the climax of the story is even more surprising.
The story runs in past as their ailment is the result of the choices they had made in their life. The story has erotic content. The book covers in length, how holistic centre works and the treatment they provide to their patients, which at some places seems stretched. The plot is intriguing and new, the narration is crystalline. The book talks about love, sex, betrayal, and expectations. From the cover, it seems a YA romance novel but the characters are near or completed half of the century of their life. The story is of life of three main characters and choices which land them into a wellness centre, to find the cure and looking for a closure and completion.
The climax came out as a surprising turn off, apparently. The way the story-line proceeded, I expected a better closure for the whole scenario but the way the story ended was amateurish and cliched. Major disadvantage is the price of the book. I couldn't find any reason to rate it for more than 300 or 350.

Each character had complex sexual relations reason behind their psychological disorder. These relations were covered through out story. While sharing or retelling or writing down those incidents gradually help them to break from their problems. An average read for adults.
