And We Remained started as a story which needed to be told. The story though, wasn't a short one. How it needed to be told had to be very different as well. And We Remained then turned into a 51,000 word, experimental fiction novel. It has a compelling storyline and a unique narration style. In the 1990's, India is going through tremendous socio-economic changes. Set in this era, it is a coming of age story of five engineering friends-Sahir, Sandeep, Gopal, Anand and David-and the women in their lives, especially the beautiful Wardha. Their intertwined story is told by these friends through first person accounts of events in their engineering college contrasted in alternate chapters with their lives a few years later when they keep in touch, narrate events in their lives and share their experiences in India and abroad through emails. And We Remained takes you on their entertaining journey through college, love, heartbreak, prison, politics, drunken binges, strip clubs, US and Europe as ... See more

  1.  Wistful and Nostalgic!!! 29 December, 2014 On
    “And They Lived…” was the series finale title of an American TV show, ‘Once Upon A Time in Wonderland’ that I’m familiar with. The title similarities was primary reason why I was interested in this book as the title ‘And We Remained’ evoked a similar feeling of absolute completion. And then I began to read this book….

    ‘And We Remained’ chronicles the lives of Sahir, Sadeep, Anand, Gopal and David during their college days. Grade troubles. Lecturer crushes. Cultural fests. Canteen food. A villainous college head. Elections time. Girl trouble and heart aches. All the drama surrounding a college life is described realistically so well along with the bonds of friendship that are nurtured within the walls of ECVU. These past events alternate with the current events in their lives that is narrated in an epistolary format. As these friends exchange their lives’ happenings with each other, you realize that grades and degrees not only solely help you in the real world. Persistence goes a long way. Not all of life is perfect for anybody. But a bunch of dependable friends who have your back will certainly help you get through life with witty remarks and a pat on the back.

    The one thing I didn’t care too much about was the boys’ comments on sex, strip clubs, nude pictures and virginity. But then I’m a girl, I’d probably never understand!

    Many of us grow up clichéd perfect versions of ‘love’. And the author has also aptly stated that we all fall in love at least once in life. But whether it works or not, whether it lasts for a moment or for a lifetime, love is love and the lessons that we learn from it are the ones that truly matter. ‘And We Remained’ shows us this in a ‘different and entertaining’ manner.

    Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for Junaid for sending me the book :-)
