Down the Road, 28 Campus Tales By 16 Authors, published byGrey Oak Publishers, India, is a refreshing and pleasant read. Edited by Ahmed Faiyaz, author of two previous novels Love, Life and all That Jazz and Another Chance, and author Rohini Kejriwal, the book is a beautiful amalgamation of a variety of different flavours of writing. Written by a few first time authors, many still students living on campuses, the book effortlessly takes you back to the fun and formative years of school and college where life was primarily about friends, first crushes and yet some embarrassing and painful moments as well.

Ranging from best selling author Ira Trivedi’s forbidden love story “The Music Room”, which follows the innocent relationship between a spirited school cricket captain and the coy music teacher, to Ahmed Faiyaz’s humorous account of a British school master in “Reason”, all these stories have the ability to provide a momentary, yet polite, glimpse into the lives of their characters. Like each of us, they experience emotions such as the joy of love and togetherness, or the pain of loss and grief, and struggle with anxiety, guilt and homesickness.
