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.
