    Description

    By Mistake, written by Viveik Pandit, is a book which portrays how destiny determines the way certain life events pan out.

    Summary Of The Book

    The story takes places in Lucknow and gradually moves through other parts of India. Shantanu is the protagonist of By Mistake. Upon completing his MBA in Munich, he returns to India, but not before being dumped by his longtime girlfriend. After reuniting with his friends, he heads to Delhi where he unexpectedly meets his childhood sweetheart Kavita, throwing the plot of Pandit’s book into motion.

    After their college years, Kavita had married Rajeev who frequently physically abused her. Eventually, she leaves him with her two year old son in hand and settles in a teacher’s position in Nainital. When Shantanu rediscovers Kavita, he begins to spend more time with her, even helping out a few of the students where she teaches. Eventually, Shantanu’s feelings reignite for Kavita and he proposes to her, but she declines him. Heartbroken but not losing hope, Shantanu commits himself to getting Kavita back. He supports her as she completes her divorce from Rajeev and also in retaining custody of her son, Adi. As Shantanu gets more and more involved in helping Kavita, it leaves readers wondering if this would bring the pair back together?

    Although Pandit’s story is deceptively simple, his portrayal of the characters brings this simple storyline to life. Through Shantanu, readers will get a glimpse into the protagonist’s “mind speak”, which is a rare territory explored in the modern literary era. By Mistake was published in 2012.

    A SUMMER SURPRISE

    “By Mistake” positioned as the ‘un-official bestseller not-by-mistake’ on a pre-launch promotional exercise has surprised critiques and readers alike. No, no, no—not readers just critiques. The critiques had written-off the ‘rather-slim’ novel as a ‘chicklit romance’, ‘another Chetan Bhagat masquerade’ or even the high-voltage, as-honest-as-it-gets write-up on the book—‘it’s a Mills & Boon from a male perspective.’
    Truly, it doesn’t get as pretentious as that. With just sixty days into the ...

    A Refreshing Breeze

    If you are looking for a book with an incomparable storyline and landmark idea, this book is not for you. It does not take you by storm. But it takes you slowly and surely like the autumn breeze, calm and relaxing...and often refreshing. The characters gradually take you in their clutches just as the vibrant depiction of an Indian lifestyle does.

    The realistic depiction of Lucknow, the portrayal of the contrasting wave lengths between the generations, the clashes in Kavita's mind and the po...

    A well crafted endearing tale

    A boy meets a girl and they become friends
    Boy falls for the girl, who doesn’t understand.
    When girl ties the knot, the boy is distraught.
    He flees to foreign shores to nurse his broken heart.
    Only to have it once more shattered.
    With emotions in tatters, his feelings are all battered.
    But this is just the beginning,
    There is so much more happening.
    A roller coaster ride of human emotions
    In crests and troughs of undulating motion.
    A tale mesmerizingly narrated
    By a writer who is top rated....

    A tantalizing tale

    The beauty of the book lies in the story telling. Words have been weaved magically into the story. The amazing portrayal of characters and the witty liners keeps us awe struck. I salute him for the wonderful piece of work he has given to hungry readers like me. In the last few years, we had seen less of the beauty of English language, the act of playing with words is something we get to see in ‘By Mistake. There’s one really amazing section of ‘Shantanu speak’ in every chapter where we get to...

    'By Mistake' is as refreshing as the morning mist. The riveting narration stirs your deep inside and strikes a definite chord, with its unassuming characters and nostalgic love it takes you down memory lane on a subtle humorous ride and before you realize you find yourself relishing the joy of eternal love and undying hope.

    Viveik Pandit comes across as a remarkable writer who has carved a niche for himself in the contemporary Indian English writing space.
