The Cover Speaks
The blue-green cover of the book with three male silhouettes sitting under the sky with twinkling stars depicts of their inner selves pondering over their dreams. The upside down angel-like shadows of each of them try to say 'SOAR'. Fly high ,when you have wings. Afterall wings of dreams gives you the strength to soar high..as high as you wish to.
The author being an IT professional has set the beginning of the story amidst an unsatisfactory job life which pays you hefty but keeps you aloof from your life. The story starts from Newark, US ( yes, that's the name of a city, don't confuse it with New York) and finds its roots rooted back in Bangalore, India. An abrupt phone call,rather say voice message, on a hectic day urges Adhyayan to immediately fly back to his very own city, Bangalore. The things have changed a lot after he went but have they really changed?
SOAR is a story of three colleagues Adhyayan, Uday and Rajasekaran who wish to jump into the trending startups world. They have an idea and a plan to execute it but nothing is so apparent. They take baby steps, stumble at first but hold each others' hand to launch their dream site. Besides, sinking day and night into their dream project, they start veering away from their personal life. Shrishti, Adhyayan's wife foresees their relationship shrinking to office only. She tries to make a balance but things don't fall in place and she takes a stern step. Other fellow Rajasekaran falls in love with an outrageous spoilt rich girl, Sneha and fears of their caste difference. While the mastermind Uday keeps himself away from all the woos to nurture his dream project.
Amidst all the success, an expansion to their dream site causes the team to break apart. Uday gets under the net of legal proceedings against him because of false charges. Will his two partners come to his rescue spitting out the bitter animosity. What will happen to their dream project. Will it too end or will thrive? Will Shrishti and Sneha proceed for a happy life with the young strivers? And how Uday will come clear of all the charges against him? Find the answers to all these questions with a light read of SOAR.
