Description

Falling in love can be a dangerous thing especially if you’re a young, attractive British girl in a conservative Indian town… Toofani Days, Valentine Nights is a contemporary, multicultural romance set in Agra, city of the Taj Mahal. ‘Toofan’ is the Hindi word for ‘Storm.’ The story centres round the tumultuous love affair between Jennifer Gayle, an English Research Student, and Sanjay Rana, a rich young Indian businessman.



The Story Behind This Book
Indian society is in a constant state of flux and, very often, there's a clash between traditionalism and modernism. Events such as Valentine's Day are becoming increasingly popular but these also bring young Indians into conflict with right-wing elements that oppose 'Mall Culture', 'Pub Culture' and Western festivals like Valentine's Day. This year the Police was out on the streets to protect young lovers on the 14th of Feb! I believe firmly that we must hold on to the freedom that we so love; it came at a heavy price. It's this turmoil that inspired me to write TOOFANI DAYS, VALENTINE NIGHTS, a fast-paced, multicultural romance. It's now available as an ebook on www.abook2read.com

Praise and Reviews
Happened upon 'Toofani Days...' by chance and was surprised to find it unputdownable. Very interesting story, completely new theme. I hope the novel achieves the success it deserves. I loved Sanjay Rana- part rake, part lover, flawed and believable. Sharon Gupta, I wager you'll hit the big time before long. Congratulations. Roger Bates (review on www.abook2read.com)

  3. Good Theme Review by Joseph Mathew
    Rating

    The theme is good and current. But as it is a novel and not an essay , readability matters. I wish the author all success and hope she will read ," The God of Small Things" by Arundhati Roy to find out how we can make a serious story more readable.A little bit of humor is always good. But I congratulate Sharon Shefali
    for taking such a bold subject for her novel. Greetings from Kerala. (Posted on 09/08/2009)
