About the Author
Tuhin A. Sinha is a best-selling author and a politician. He studied in Loyola School, Jamshedpur, and Hindu College, Delhi, before doing his Post Graduate Diploma in Advertising and Communications Management (PGDACM) from the National Institute of Advertising, (NIA), New Delhi. Tuhin is acknowledged as one of the most prolific Indian writers with a maverick knack of experimenting with new genres. While his first book, That Thing Called Love (2006) was an offbeat romance, The Captain (2008) was a thriller that explored the underbelly of modern cricket. Of Love And Politics (2010) was a political thriller. His fourth and fifth books, The Edge Of Desire (2012) and its sequel, The Edge of Power (2013), can be called socio-political thrillers. Daddy (2014) was Tuhin’s sixth book and his first non-fiction narrative. It is India’s first parenting book that has been written from a father’s perspective and celebrates new-age fatherhood. Tuhin’s next book, Let The Reason Be Love (2015) was, once again, an offbeat romance. Other than these, Tuhin has also co-authored the book India Aspires with Union Minister for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping, Shri. Nitin Gadkari. He has also been a screenwriter for several popular television shows, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, being one of them, which he co-wrote in 2011-12. At present, Tuhin is involved as a special initiatives advisor to Shri Nitin Gadkari for his ministries, with a special focus on designing newer communication strategies for road safety and Namami Gange. He is also a prominent face on prime time debates on national television as a BJP representative.

Vihaan, the defense minister of India, receives an invitation for a book launch, a book written by her ex-girlfriend Zaira. In midst of security threat at the border near Kashmir, our young minister is thrown into a confusion so as to attend the book launch or not. As Vihaan tries to find an answer, we are given a back story about Vihaan and Zaira, starting from how they met to how they fell in love and ended up going separate ways, only to meet again and again.
But having a fling for the separatist’s daughter isn’t an easy job. As Vihaan faces the toll his decisions might take, he finds himself closer to finding the reason for his existence and his sense of duty takes him to Kashmir and solve crisis like never before. This story is all about love- for a person and the country. It takes a special kind of courage to pursue one’s desire in spite of all the problems and hurdles.
I had my issues with a few things, first being, the story starts with a very casual tone. We see Vihaan as a guy head over heels for Zaira, and we have absolutely no idea about his beliefs or political views. But towards the end the tone gets serious and we see a different Vihaan- one who would do anything for his country. This is definitely a surprise element, but I am left unsettled with the way the story ends. The plot was repetitive at places, especially Vihaan and Zaira crossing paths about a Zillion times. That could have been replaced by how Vihaan rose to power and what his ideologies were. Somehow, I found the plot unbalanced and weak.
I am happy with Zaira character because she has been kept constant throughout- a woman who is spontaneous, sensitive and has absolutely no clue about her whereabouts. This book can indeed be turned into a movie because it has drama, a sense of longing, romance and a political agenda, but as a book, it could have been better.
The story started off well with a piece of thrill but that was lost very fast. With the blurb I expected a perfect political thriller but this was more of romance, a matured romantic novel. Author amazingly delivered the charisma between Vihaan and Zaira. A failed relationship by and through time which blossomed again to a forever love by and through heart.
I admire the way author elaborated the side of Kashmiri people pain and love which we always neglect to notice. Author easily walked us through Kashmir with this story line. Hope one day I see Kashmir the way author has dreamed and written.
The romantic part seems to be repetitive. I started to skip the romance portion as my mind imagined that it would the same. The travel plan of Vihaan and Zaira was bit dragging but trust me its worth reading as we progress towards the last page. Author handled the relationship between Vihaan and Zaira with utmost decorum so as to give importance to the political revolution of Vihaan.
Overall “When The Chief Fell In Love ,the gorgeous and beautiful Kashmir happened to our country India”. Recommended to the readers who wish to experience a matured romance novel with social aspects.
It is more than a love story!
Vihaan is unbelievably too blind in love while Zaira’s behaviour towards Vihaan is very irritating when she fails to reciprocate his love even though she has feelings for him 😌 and distances herself more than once but at the end they are true couple goals!
While Vihaan goes on to become a politician and Zaira, a poet and a professional writer living their individual lives. Transcending all the turmoils of their personal lives they cross their path again after 13 years. As Defence Minister of India, Vihaan, along with Zaira, together they tread on a dangerous path of resolving the tensions brewing in kashmir, for which Zaira’s father is partly responsible.
A historical – romantic fiction, which starts as a plain love story in 1990, ends up with a political backdrop in 2030 which turns out to be very informative that you might just end up googling about the war in kashmir like i did, which is otherwise just another news for us in the grind of day to day life, living hundred of miles away.
What to Watch out for….
Poems!!.. i am not a big fan of poems to be honest but the stuff in this book made me go gaga…
War torn kashmir through a politician’s perspective.
Article 370 and its effects on kashmir!… Time to brush up your civic knowledge…
This Book is for Patriotics.. it revoked a sense of belonging and love for kashmir to an extent that i have become a bit possessive of the beautiful valley… KASHMIR OBSESSED so to speak!
I am now like… Damnnn youuu😈!!… That’s OUR kashmirrrr😎!!
Everything was perfect with the writing style, with the narration, even the plot and story was unique and it did choke me with emotions at times.. but i felt the end a bit far fetched though that is what we want to see Kashmir like. Though a work of Fiction i don’t want to compromise with realism. however far fetched it may seem, in a small corner of my heart i really want someone like Vihaan to come along and make Kashmir happen. 🙏
As Vihaan rightly puts it,
In a democracy, politicians are the only people who can actually bring change. The others – – bureaucrats, journalists, and the common people, they can only take that change forward, they cannnot really initiate change.
An empathetic politician is a rarity but if you would like to see how one, if he/she exist looks like and how it would impact our country, give this one a try.
because politicians like vihaan only exist in books!!
