Drop – A Novel
Author: Youth Wing of Chinmaya Mission
the journey we hesitate to take…. Here is an impromptu trip with four young adults. As we read their every quirk and fear and join in their madness, we see a deep side to them as they subtly seek, then find, direction to drop their unwanted baggage… Andy : The rocking “tough” guy from the USA who’s trying to let go of a painful past . Nitya : A breath of fresh air who puts a smile on everyone’s face. In zigzags of life, she’s trying to find direction. Pragnya : An inquisitive and persistent journalist. The story is her goal, and she won’t stop until she gets it. Swaroop : The silent and conflicted seeker who constantly questions the mystery of life. Yatri : The enigmatic photographer. You’ll think about what he said long after he said it ; and you’ll think about what he didn’t say even longer. Join the gang as they take a journey within. Follow them as their backpack full of questions and discover a treasure trove of answers on an adventure filled road trip. Whether it’s having a jallebi-eating contest in Varanasi or white water rafting in Rishikesh, each place presents its own challenge, showing each of characters what they need to drop in life in order to move forward… Dare to question… What do YOU have to ‘drop’ in order to evolve?
