Also worth mentioning is that Indian Marketing situations and corporate office descriptions are very close to authentic.
They meet in a corporate situation: Ragini, a musician is to create a piece for the silver-jubilee of the organization headed by Andrew. Sparks fly even through they’re very different people, and the book goes into lovely interludes about music, and poignant tales from the past.
A simple yet moving story, this romance will pull at your heartstrings, make you smile at the banter between the leads, the atmosphere in a corporate office and finally, make you wonder at the transformation of the two characters. Would make a lovely romantic movie.
Wonderfully written tale reminiscent of Nora Roberts, in an authentic Indian setting. Highly recommended.
A sweet, simple romance that weaves music into the corporate world, Our Song is a fun read and took me back to the days of the good old Mills & Boons that formed a large part of my TBR in the past.
And yet, what a revelation “Our Song” turned out to be! Milan weaves total magic with her words, storyline and her amazing characters. As her characters navigate complex emotions you feel the magic of a symphony unravelling. There is deep thought interspersed with rapidfire exchanges. There is a pontificatory, zoomed out view of the world along side the sheer thrill of the here and now. Milan offers a story where her characters choose words carefully and their ruminations are interwoven, ever so beautifully, with nuances of Hindustani khayal. Both Andrew and Ragini are people - real yet complex, authentic yet troubled and bold yet terribly reserved in ways that are so so human. As you go through the chapters, you not only live their chemistry, you smile, your heart wells up and you can’t put this book down. In telling this beautiful story Milan takes you through parts of Bangalore and then almost magically and suddenly springs Shimla and Kasauli upon you like it is your own whimsical little retreat. For good measure there is a little bit of London too but this story is still about these two wonderful people. Places and characteristics are props which expertly provide an amazing context to the complex relationship between Andrew and Ragini.
For me this novel is about the glorious music of life and whether you are familiar with the lilt of Jhinjhoti or not, you will find yourselves immersed in Ragini’s quest of a resolution via Bhoopali, you will experience the joys of long-winded thought, of Khayal. This novel is about the romance of hope intertwined with the pain brought by past experiences, the anxiety of the here and now and the curious conflicts of what most of us would call culture. But in all of this, we experience love and realise why it is still our biggest blessing. Ragini and Andrew, latticed with the motley characters of Angel, Annie, Naidu and Anand all inform us why we need a world where there is less steadfastness and more camaraderie. They gently persuade us to believe that the joy and ebullience of free thought can almost seamlessly blend with onerous responsibility. And that is truly living, being alive.
Milan Vohra’s “Our song” is a triumph. It is not just a romantic novel, it is an ode to our untethered spirit and is a symphony in honour of love and life. An absolute triumph! Thank you Milan.
A great cosy weekend read with your chai!
