      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description
    It is 1990, Raghu is in the final year of an all-boys school in Delhi. The monotony of attending school is broken by escapades with Aadi – his best friend and the rest of the gang from school. High on hormones the boys are knocking hard on the doors of adulthood! A slew of blank calls and a mystery caller bring intrigue into Raghu’s life. He is surprised when one fine day Shalini, a girl from his study group turns up at his doorstep. Raghu and Shalini join forces to nail the mystery caller and soon find themselves falling in love. A coming of age fiction set in Delhi of the early 1990s, Eighteen: The End of Innocence traces the lives of three teenagers – Raghu, his girlfriend Shalini and his best friend Aadi. It is a tale about the choices young adults make, often blurring the line between fun and felony in the name of love or for the sake of friendship. Eighteen: The End of Innocence is a journey from turning an adult to maturing into one.

    Eighteen The End of Innocence

    Very nice read ... I like the way Sudham has built the main characters - aadi, Shalini and Raghu .... I couldn't keep the book down till the very end wanting to know what was coming In next ... The building of Raghu/ Shalini & Raghu/ aadi relationship is awesome man ... The only part I would be critical about is the ending which I felt was abrupt especially after the Kuljeet episode ... Don't want to spoil the read for the others with specifics but nice light fiction after a long time ... I ...

    eighteen the end of innocense

    The beauty of the book “Eighteen, The end of innocence”(by First time author Sudham), is its simplicity.
    It’s a story with which teenagers (or those who are old-agers!!!!) will relate very easily…just like next door girl, this is next group story.
    The story revolves around a group of teenagers in Delhi and how some very small, seemingly uneventful things (which is what young adults think they are, in that age) can slowly change the course of life either of the group itself or of some of the...

    Addictive!

    Just cant put this book down! The story is seamlessly told while shifting between different character's narratives. And when you see if from different lenses, you don't blame anyone for anything anylonger. Sudham captures youth, nostalgia and emotions (career decisions) very well.

    Beautiful Read!

    this book is simple yet beautiful! i got completely immersed in the story and could not put the book down. i love the way Sudham has built the characters and the story. there is not a single point where you feel a drag in the story... it enthralls you completely. One can relate to every thought, every moment and every action!! its set in a "no mobile and landline only" era. Took me down the memory lane!

    Lovely First Sudham!!

    It is def..MAKE IN INDIA

    Awesome book by the author...I really enjoyed this story. I could relate to in a few ways. The storyline was easy to follow, and after a turning point in the story, I found it hard to put the book down as I wanted to see how everything was going to turn out. I wasn't disappointed.

    Great work by the author

    What a brilliant first book !

    An excellent read. I couldnt put it down once I started. reminded me of my college days. From the sound of it, it appears that the author might write a sequel or a part 2 - looking forward to that. I wont be surprised if this gets made into a movie.
