Parrot under the Pine Tree is the powerful expression of love. In the girl’s heart; it’s subtle, sublime and eternal. But in the boy’s heart; it’s earthy, insecure and restless. The anxiety brings the two young hearts close. In the clean and tranquil environs of Kausani, Vedanta inadvertently meets Saranga under bizarre circumstances and both fall in love with each other. But Alas! Their happiness doesn’t last long. On one fateful night of temptation, the storm that blows up not only consumes his heart and soul, but also shreds that of Saranga into pieces. On insistence of her grandma Saranga agrees to give a second chance to a repentant Vedanta. But misgivings remain in her heart. Will Kausani rework the magic again between the estranged couple?

Review :

The book is a simple tale on love which shows the struggles, every people undergo when they are in love. The book opens up with the beautiful description of Kausani Village near Himalayas where Vedanta arrives in search of his soul mate. And that’s when Saranga enters his life as a guiding light who takes him on a journey of love. They both get married and moves to Bangalore where Dhruv born as an emblem of their love. Further, the story moves on disclosing all the ups and downs in every relationship even after marriage.

Parrot Under the Pine tree – a heart warming book with a poetic touch. This book remains close to heart just for the beautiful descriptions of those places which makes the readers to travel to that place. The author has painted the book with poetic feel with his narration. The book was upheld by the opening of every chapters where the author describes the scenic beauty of the location. The language was simple yet excellent. The story behind every characters were neatly weaven and the book also holds a real meaning to the word “love” through its coherent storyline which makes the book an interesting read. It gives an insight to love. This book proves that nothing is permanent in this world and also serves as a page turner from cover to cover. Though the book fails to satisfy the thirst for reader at some points, it serves as a light read to calm down the polluted heart with its mesmerising description of places. 

The cover is simple yet natural which depicts the backdrop of the Kausani village which plays a major role in the book. The title is unique yet remains unjustified. The blurb is more enough to give an insight of what’s hidden inside.

Verdict : A light read on love worth the money spent.
