Would you give up your high-paying job and comfortable personal life to drive ten thousand kilometres across India? Just for fun!Three twenty-something's dare to do just that! While the two boys take turns to drive, the girl gives voice-over as they record their entire journey on a handy cam.Ab, Sasha and Unnati are ordinary youngsters, rendered special by the feat they accomplish. As they recount their adventures, I crave to live their journey. They look at each other with a glint in their eyes, as if refurbishing those memories while narrating their spooky time at Bhangarh Fort, strange escapades at Wagah Border and Sundarbans, car breakdowns, wild animals, near-death experiences and highway robbers! It's nothing less than crazy. 
I doubted if I'd ever have the gumption to create such experiences. So I did the next best thing - I penned a book about them and their road trip. 

Colorful Notions is a journey of three young hearts on the Indian terrain and into the inner recesses of their souls, giving a new perspective to relationships, love and life.


The mere word 'Road trip' excited me and all I wanted to do was dive into this book as soon as I received it. Right from the first page to the last, my enthusiasm or excitement remained intact. Colourful Notions is an exciting read. 

The story, as the blurb says, is about the road trip the three friends - Abhay, Sashank and Unnati take. The story talks about their journey, the fun moments, the adventurous escapades and the gloomy times. I loved the way the author has named the chapters. The chapter names make you want to read the book. I finished reading this book in one seating. Colorful Notions is like a mixed fruit jam. Each incident contributes evenly to the book. The narration is in first person narrative and steals the show. It seems realistic and is engaging. The itinerary is well planned. The author has done immense research before penning down the book. 

The book also teaches a few life lessons. It fills you with motivation towards the end. 

  • The friendship between Abhay, Sashank and Unnati. 
  • The lovey-dovey couple: Unnati and Sashank. 
  • Abhay's innovative ideas. 

  • The description about the places which the road trippers visit is very less. Reading experience would have been enhanced had the description been more. 

I rate: 

Cover: 4/5 
Characters: 3.5/5 
Story: 3.5/5 

I rate 'Colorful Notions - The Roadtrippers 1.0' with 3.5/5 stars.

You can buy your copies on Amazon.
