    Description

    This is a story that was meant to be told. Also, the story is not short and had to be narrated in a different way. Here is the story of the lives of five friends who started off as engineering students.

    Summary of the Book

    And We Remained is a gripping story with a unique narration style. It is a 51,000 word novel, and the story is set in the 1990’s when India was going through major socio-economic changes.The story is about the lives of five engineering students who have been friends for a long time – Sahir, Sandeep, Gopal, Anand and David. It also speaks of the women in their lives, especially Wardha. The story is intertwined and is told by each of the friends from a first person perspective of the given event. The events that had taken place during their college years are a contrast to the lives that each of them live in their later lives. Even after years, they have kept in touch and narrated their experiences in life both in India and abroad through e-mails. This is an amusing story of their individual journeys through college, love, heartbreak, prison, politics, alcohol, strip clubs, US and Europe.

    Abso-f***ing-lutely Amusing!!!

    The cover is definitely captivating and so are the pages inside. The book makes for a light-hearted, delightful read that keeps you smiling all the way through. A good travel companion. It makes you go back in time if you are through your college days reminding you of your own goof-ups and fun times!!!! Relish it.

    Nostalgia attack!

    The picturesque cover could be misleading, it just takes you back to all those crazy college days of irresponsible fun, purposeless wanderings and aimless days filled with lots of emotion.
    Told in a novel way of email trails, it guarantees lighthearted humour and reminisce of your college days.

    And We Remained

    The cover design did draw my attention however I's skeptical about the story. As I began to read, it was way different than I'd imagined. I do admire the way the writer describes and captures the moments. Its awe inspiring. A very thoughtful way of narration. The reading was indeed joyful.

    A uniquely narrated not so uncommon tale !

    A very light read. Style of narration is the icing on the cake for this short novel. You feel as if you are one of the characters of the story that is unfolding in front of you. At the end, you even feel it would be nice if you knew the characters personally. The transitions from flash-back to present are so well timed and elegantly managed, that you hardly feel any discomfort adjusting to the settings. With the language easy to comprehend, you can easily finish it in one sitting. A decent de...

    Interesting story told in a different style.

    ‘And We Remained’ is a debut novel by designing professional Asad Ali Junaid. I loved the cover of the book because the cover says everything about the content of the book. Designed obviously by Asad Ali Junaid. This is what happens when a designer, design for himself.

    The story is described in a different and unique way. At the very beginning it struck to me that the narrating style is a bit confusing but as the story goes on I find this style unique and innovative. This story is narrated i...

    A light and refreshing read!

    'And We Remained' tells the story of not just 5 friends, but the story of every college student..studies, love, breakups,the raging hormones (at least in the case of guys), occasional but inevitable tiffs with the college authority etc. It describes every kind of emotion that a person goes through in his/her college life. You are neither a teenager or a complete mature adult (emotionally and mentally). The many challenges that you must face to achieve your goals and dreams and the happiness ...
