…Suddenly, he saw something shiny at the bottom of the abyss. He squinted his eyes to see what it was. He ran back to his binoculars and turned them to see what it was. Sharp barbed wires that separated the two mountains came into focus. He had come as far as he could in his country. But she was standing in another country.

He was in South India and she was in North India…

Have you ever imagined India being divided into two countries? What happens to the millions of Indians who are from South India but are now residing in North India? Kaahi & Jai were two such people who got trapped in this situation. Everything was going smoothly for them and suddenly, their world turned upside down.

How will they get together? Will India become one again?

Take an exciting journey with them from their college days in Mumbai to their life in the US and back to India when they find out that India is divided.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

The spirit within the storyline itself, combined with the overall style of the author, make this fast flowing book into a bit of an emotional whirlwind for the characters, and for the readers. When the novel ended, I was a little disappointed! I was not ready for it to end. I wanted the story to continue for many more chapters.


The author has now managed to put India on my bucket list of places to visit. I wish all my geography books had been written like this – I might have learnt more. This book is quite a little gem.


I was captivated by this book. The author tells the compelling story of a man, the woman he marries and their friends, starting out in Mumbai. India Was One is a unique book, one I highly recommend to anyone interested in love, friendship, loyalty and suffering, no matter what their culture.


Reading India Was One, was like entering through a hidden portal, the reader is introduced to the rich heritage of India, it is a story that unfolds with descriptive colorful characters that become like a family to the reader.


As a way to learn of another culture, India Was One wins hands down. As always it is a shame how we let small differences separate people. I really am glad I read this book and recommend it highly.
