“A book that captures the aspirations, emotions, passions of a post-liberalisation middleclass India. A story well told through the journey of three talented individuals and their society.”
– D Shivakumar, CEO, PepsiCo India More
Take three friends from boarding school.
Add up their loves, their passions, their careers.
And you’ll have a peek into their zany, crisscrossing lives.
It’s their last year in St. John’s, a boarding school nestled amongst the misty hills of Darjeeling. Rahul is an introverted kid from a troubled Bengali home. His only hope is his relationship with Piu, a girl he met on his last visit to Kolkata. Ajay is the quintessential handsome Delhi boy aspiring to be a movie star. Sundar comes from an academically illustrious family. He is gunning for six points in his ICSE exam to prove a point to his father. The boys have plans for their final year in school and not all are by the rule book.
Life beyond their alma mater is not what they bargained for. A promising career cut short brutally, a costly indiscretion, a bitter rivalry where everything is not what it seems to be. Spanning thirty years and spread across six cities, Crossing Over is a riveting saga of the life of the three boarding school friends. A story of love and rivalry, of hope and despair but above all of loss and forgiveness.
