    “The way you make an omelet reveals your character.” ― Anthony Bourdain ‘The colour of love’ is a book that has the potential to blow away the cobwebs and enchant the readers with love spell. With an appealing yet somber cover and a precise blurb the book outlook tells the readers exactly what they can expect. The genre is, no doubt, romance.

With an appealing yet somber cover and a precise blurb the book outlook tells the readers exactly what they can expect. The genre is, no doubt, romance. Sarfaraz, who is born and brought up in a middle class family and has been imbibed with moral values and orthodox customs, is our protagonist. With his flamboyant personality, he can make every girl weak in her knees. His search for true love is what the story focuses on. Meghna, a down-to-earth and humble lady, is our female protagonist. The love birds fall in love only to face the hurdles that lie ahead. With the increasing number of Romantic genre books in the market, somehow I feel my interest declining. But there are books that leave a strong imprint on your mind. This book failed to do so. Already bored of reading college romance, I could not relate to the plot this time because of redundant ideas and lengthy monologues. The book, however, addresses a very important issue of inter religion marriages and might serve as an eye-opener for all. Sarfaraz’s struggle to get his love interest and fight all odds like standing up for what his family feels is not right, has been portrayed beautifully. The author has been very thoughtful and has used good vocabulary in depicting the characters of Meghna and Sarfaraz. Not to forget the simple dialogue delivery and lucid narration, this book will definitely interest those who prefer College/ Teen romance. Somehow I feel that there was no need to include the scenes that described the physical intimacy. The title of the book could have been better. With predictable plot, the story does not offer anything new. But the author has succeeded in keeping the language simple and lucid. There are typos in the book and they can be spotted time and again. Best wishes to the author!

His joining college, dealing with annoying seniors makes the beginning of the book really interesting. Initially,his character describes well how one confuses infatuation with love. From the small things like, the way protagonist's mother responds to his passionate attitude towards college life, to those huge life transforming happenings associated with his life,the author has so beautifully created a perfect balance with the storytelling part. REVIEW The story is extended in an appropriate manner. Thus, making a perfect choice for beginners as well, just like author's first novel In Love And Free. The character development is such that the readers will be finding all the characters in their vicinity. The book under review has got a satisfactory ending too. As reflected in the title, a colorful theme of love is running across the book, depicted chapter-wise. So, just take a break with this tale of love, of growing up, of finding love and losing it again to the conspiracies of this universe. The title followed by a subtitle is surely complying with the genre of the book. However, the book cover could have been better. A book that's served with a twist to keep you spellbound;perfect onetime read.

    Let me sum it up in three words- fresh, perfectly stringed and above par description of places and events. The Colour of Love by Jagdish Joghee is a story which revolves around protagonist named Sarfaraz and his life. Sarfaraz who hails from middle class, born and brought by Muslim parents, he too inculcated strong values from his parents. Sarfaraz when hit his college he created canvas of memories, some turned out to be fun while few as a nightmare.

Sarfaraz who hails from middle class, born and brought by Muslim parents, he too inculcated strong values from his parents. Sarfaraz when hit his college he created canvas of memories, some turned out to be fun while few as a nightmare. The title of the book goes with the story, the cover could have been better. Whereas the book was mixture of teen romance and a thrilling one. Narration- Narration of the book was fast paced keeping the storyline together. Nowhere I felt being astray from the story, the book was tempting to be completed in a single sitting. Language- Being the second novel by Author, he kept the promise of surprising his readers; the language was simply beautiful and really fresh. A positive punch. Characters I enjoyed the most – Sarfaraz- Sarfaraz being protagonist keep it’s reader hooked. Boy who might not be boy next door but made girls turn on heels with his impeccable gesture and way of persuation. Sarfzraz, who keep seeking love in beauties but then end up being infatuation and when he realized his love; it was too late to meet the ends but then his life surprise him. Megha – Megha who one the other side born and brought up in an affluent family was just contrast of Sarfaraz, even they’re religion differs but she was different unlike other spoil rich brat. Megha was a down to earth girl and who kept protecting her friend Sarfaraz . Rest all characters were justified and enjoyable. Portions which I enjoyed the most – The book comprises many segments from a middle class boy life to the impact of political powers, from newbie crushes to intense feeling called love which is felt once and stayed forever. I thoroughly enjoyed from the being the way Author has described a nuclear Muslim family who lead a life like a Spartan and morals with all righteous upbringing and thought school. Other portion which moved me when Author folds the story to college life, while flipping the pages my memories were even flashing back. College crushes, hustle- bustle, the fest celebration and friendship for lifetime; all these perfectly described. Author has even mentioned the major gap between religions(Hindu and Muslim) but it diminishes by love and humanity. Book kept me hooked on a seat till last page, the suspense part was very well kept and written. Trust me, I don’t read the book but I lived. Negative Punch – 1. Book cover could have been better. Book Recommendation- Book is strongly recommended to those who believe in love, to those wants to cherish college-hood and it’s memories and to people who wants to read on friendship. The Colour of Love is compact of all these elements. Overall Rating – I would rate The Colour of Love 4/5 stars for being the gripping story with perfect story telling art. Book has entered to my favorite book list. Reviewed by Aditi Srivastava

    The Colour of Love by Jagdish Joghee is the tale of two communities which involves religion, love, politics and friendship.The book takes you to a journey where life is bitter as well as sweet. Lets analyse it: Cover- The cover of the book is simple where we notice two people standing holding their hands. The colour scheme is bit different.

Lets analyse it: Cover- The cover of the book is simple where we notice two people standing holding their hands. The colour scheme is bit different. Title- The title is apt as the story revolves around it and it definitely not digress from its mode. Blurb- Sarfaraz is brought up with a good value system by his devoted parents. With time, curiosity and adolescent growth pangs take him through many experiences. His first brush with girls starts with a friend, and slowly meanders into casual flirtatious affairs with girls at college. All through it, he realises that none of them have his undying, true love. A time comes when he realises who he truly loves, and in the midst of it all, he handles brutal enmity and takes on vile characters that misbehave with his friends. Sarfaraz grows up in Coimbatore where a series of bomb blasts occur. His identity is called in question, as his status as a Muslim makes people see him as an enemy. He loses something precious in the blasts and leaves to Sharjah, only for life to find him and surprise him. Plot- The plot is gripping and binds the readers till the end. This is a life story of Sarfaraz and his struggles in a new city. The sub plot includes the community issues and dirty politics. Theme- It is difficult to decide what is the main theme as all seems important. So, I start accordingly. Theme of Religion- We find religious differences between Muslims and Hindus. If one side we find violence, the other side shows love, care and harmony. Sometimes, it becomes bit controversial but yet settled. Theme of Friendship- As we know, friends are lifeline so here we notice Sarfaraz and his friendship with various people, some were fenuinely true while some betrayed him and acted mean. Theme of LOve- We notice Sarfaraz indulging in various love affairs but still his heart search for someone and when he finds it in Meghna, its magical. The readers expect a beautiful love story but the author's twists and turns in the story makes it look enthralling. Characterisation- The author has beautifully crafted his characters be it the protagonist, Sarfaraz or the antagonist, Sidharth or the heroine, Meghna. All three of them are complex characters and its difficult to guess whats going on in their minds. They are related to each other. If one is affected, the others are automatically affected. The trio share a relationship of friendship and animosity. Style- The author has used a simple style of writing which makes the work understandable. The events, the fun element along with the flashback technique followed by third person narrative is beyond appreciation.The realisation of love takes place in the end chapters whereas the other concept of memory loss acts like an icing on the cake.

The dialect utilized as a part of the book is anything but difficult to fathom and the novel qualifies as a delightful light read. The story plot is woven attentively and the turns and turns keep the gathering of people to the edge of their seats. His joining school, managing irritating seniors makes the start of the book truly fascinating. Initially, his character depicts well how one mistakes fixation for affection. As reflected in the title, a beautiful subject of affection is running over the book, delineated part savvy. Along these lines, simply enjoy a reprieve with this story of affection, of growing up, of discovering adoration and losing it again to the tricks of this universe. Dialect and Narration-Language of this book is basic yet great. Describing style of Mr. Joghee is OK and together with pace, story stream is easy. Storyline and Plot-Mr. Joghee have astounding narrating aptitudes which I am certain you'll feel while understanding this book. All the school scenes are composed splendidly. The harmony amongst over a wide span of time story is great. With all the unforeseen wanders aimlessly and smooth storyline, writer serves another splendid book and enthrall his perusers altogether. Pros: 1. The characters and their development are appeared in a stunning way. 2. Something new is offered to peruse. 3. Great read for first time perusers and a decent book regardless. 4. Extremely astounding tension thriller. 5. The peak is simply great. It lets us know that Love can happen twice. Cons: 1. The plot gets unsurprising on occasion and the story gets a touch of exhausting. 2. The vocabulary part could be somewhat better. 3. As our creator appears to be truly attached to south Indian states. I thought they are just so too much portrayed. It was not that necessary. A convincing and an energizing page turner that keeps you pondering about the profound shades of affection that stands on life tragedies. There's nothing I found not affable separated from the length of the book. I wished to peruse all the more yet it finished too early. I should say this book has touched my spirit. I cherish it

Sarfaraz, six feet tall, well-built and handsome looking from a middle class and simple family join college. As it was a kind of tradition, he too faced ragging in his early days but this ragging brought a friend and a friend with benefit in his life.

And in India, bei Story starts with the introduction of Sarfaraz and the Valentine’s Day, the dreadful experience he had a decade ago. Sarfaraz, six feet tall, well-built and handsome looking from a middle class and simple family join college. As it was a kind of tradition, he too faced ragging in his early days but this ragging brought a friend and a friend with benefit in his life. First year was difficult for him as he was in a relationship with a daughter of a big politician cum businessman. And in India, being in a relationship with a guy/girl of different caste/religions becomes one healthy issue. But later, he realized the fact that it was just an attraction towards Avantika. Later on, he found some bad company and indulged himself in all those he faced in first year. He became a bad guy and Meghana, his first friend insulted him in front of the college. Later on, he found that what he was doing was wrong and fell in love with Meghana. Will it become a successful love story? Or like another relationship, they would think about the society? Surely I wouldn’t let the secret out. For that, you need to read the book. This book was more like a journey to me. Starting of the book was complete and every feeling was attached to the words. Author puts his point rightly and it needs to be accepted by our society. Love should not just be confined to single caste or religion, even two different religions, two castes should not be forced to stop. Narration was simple and easy and I was never bored reading the story. Though there were some words errors but all that was covered by the ending which was totally unexpected. I was expecting it to end like any other love story but it was different and that was the emotional part of the novel. Cover of the book rightly describes the story and blurb could have been better. Many congratulations to the author for coming up with such a nice book and you are a fearless writer! I Like- 1) Moral of the novel. 2) Suhas as a friend, there are few in thousands like him. I dislike- 1) How Indian society differentiates on the basis of caste.

It's is a romance tit-bit that contains a myriad of emotions. To be frank, for me, the book was a blur of feelings, emotions and instances. The author Jagdish has filled the few 100 pages to the brink, almost to the point of overflow. The book begins with a young man Sarfaraz and we continue to follow his story through his adolescence to his adult life. We accompany Sarfaraz to his college where we see his college life bloom with drama. The college scenes and the description of his life for those 5 years is like a walk down the memory lane for those of us who have left our colleges behind. We see the lust between Sarfaraz and Avantica, enmity between him and Siddharth and lastly, blossoming love between Sarfaraz and our female protagonist, Meghana. We see all these characters realise and explore their sexuality, flaunt their youthful arrogance and suffer for their inexperience and mistakes. While we are dragged through the ever changing emotions of Sarfaraz and his lady loves (in plural), Jagdish has weaved the reality into the book with the help of the communal riots that changes the lives of the characters, forever. This plot arrives in the very end but it is a welcome change and diversion from all the college romance drama that may become a little too much. I have to admit that I was very surprised and yet impressed with the anti climatic end that Jagdish came up with. It is sudden and unexpected but it gives a much needed twist to the romance. This twist helps the hook from becoming a terrible cliché. The title could have been more expressive of the story, whereas it is a little too vague. I was clueless about what I was to expect from the book because the title didn't give me a story. Maybe that is the charm though! The language and writing style is simple and easy to follow. The frequent transport from past to present is so perfect the one need to battle no confusion at all. To conclude, The Colour of Love is a tiny, age old, love story that will make you reminisce your youth and your first love. Grab this book on a breeze evening and gobble it up in one night (much like I did!)

    Story in a nutshell: The story revolves mainly around 2 characters - Sarfaraz and Meghna. The Colour of Love is their love story. As the name of the characters tell you, Sarfaraz is a Muslim guy and Meghna a Hindu girl. They meet during their college days and become best buddies. How and when does this friendship blossom into love? Does their family accept this alliance? Do Sarfaraz and Meghna end up together and have a happy end?

How and when does this friendship blossom into love? Does their family accept this alliance? Do Sarfaraz and Meghna end up together and have a happy end? Review: The story is that of college romance and I was sceptical about reading it. Will this be a good read? I thought. Now a days, I have developed an aversion for college romances. But The Colour of Love doesn't belong to that category. I must say I enjoyed reading every page of this book. The narration is lucid and simple. Readers will instantly connect with the characters. The characters have been developed well. However, I feel that some characters could have been involved more. It was more like a character entered, played his role and left. I feel they deserved some more space. Also, this would have lengthened the story. The flow of the events have been very nicely done. The transition between the present and the past could have been brought out in a better way. This story proves that no matter what the time is, what the situation is, true love finds its way against all the odds. It teaches you that you cannot force yourself to love someone. Love just happens. Love has no boundaries. It doesn't care for religion, caste and creed. We mustn't bother about these differences and accept love the way it comes. The Colour of Love is a perfect book to spend time with on weekends. I am sure you'll have a good read. I rate: Cover: 3/5 Characters: 3/5 Story: 3/5 My overall rating for The Colour of Love is 3/5 stars.

The brilliantly depicted each characters and the changes they embraced over time, he also succeeded in creating the typical life style of a college boy with respect to the region they are from. There is high voltage drama and then there is guy next door feel to it. It contains all the essential ingredients of an Indian love story in right proportions, nothing is overdone which makes it effective. The flash back style of story telling is pulled off well. The highlight is its concept of love, it points out that impulsive commitment owing to the age, over times fades off and that it’s all about finding the right one. I found the element of terrorism with coherence to the lead’s background an interesting twist. In some places it was very much predictable and it in deed held low points along. Language and writing technique needs polishing. All in all its a delightful one time read. I will rate it 4/5

    The Colour of Love dabs a college life love story. It explores the life of Srafarisha, a muslim from Kerala how his life turns out at college; his perks in all aspects and his shot at finding his love of life adding more… how fate played with his life. What’s best about the book is that the characters are like people next door that helps in connecting well with the readers. The framing of characters with their regional influence was interesting. The turn of events were coherent and composed well. The Colour of Love dabs a college life love story.

The turn of events were coherent and composed well. The approach towards love is realistic, in a way pointing out the difference between crush, love and lust; a true meaning of what love is and how it is different from the other momentary forms of attraction.Towards the end there might be that high level dramatic moment that might make you feel “Not again! ” but then it takes a turn to end at a hopeful point, nothing tragic, which went good with me. What is off about the book is that it is a bit predictable in the first few pages itself, but how... is what to be read. Writing style and delivery can be improvised. I will rate it 4/5

    "The Colour Of Love" is the second book by Jagdish Joghee. After reading the book "In love and free", I had set my expectation for this book and Jagdish exceeded it. I'm falling for this author's work. The language of this book is simple but it has its unique way to keep you glued. After some chapters you'll feel strongly connected to the protagonists. All the characters are well developed and the author didn't exaggerate any scene.

I must say this book has touched my soul. This is a perfect book for avid teenage fiction readers. I'll give it 4 out of 5 stars for its wonderful binding of love, romance, sentiments, twists and turns.

    The protagonist is Sarfaraz, a Muslim guy who goes through a lot in his life, more of it on the romance/love side of his life. There are other characters who add different angles to his life and bring in new dimensions to the story. The story moves in a smooth flow. The end does surprise you as a reader though as a Bollywood watcher, it keeps to the happy-ending climax pattern. The descriptive and the narrative did manage to keep me reading!

These are the times when people come across the most sensitive human emotions all together and more often than not they are blank about how to deal with them. Sarfaraz is quite unlike today's child who predominantly constitute spoiled rich brats. On the contrary , he is an idealistic young boy next door every parents look upto for inspiration for their ward. He is armored with the deep moral values of truthfulness , sincerity , honesty and discipline that he has imbibed from his parents. But as they say , "life doesnt remain the same always and it hits you with the unexpected , unthinkable when you expected it the least" Even Sarfaraz was not an exception. He was smitten by the bug of infatuation during his college days but soon realizes that its not true love.His life takes a cruel turn when his identity is misconstrued as for being a terrorist mainly owing to his religion. The best thing that really impresses me about this writing is the characterization. Besides the character of protagonist , the way Megha is presented as a down to earth girl who always stands for her pal , Sarfaraz is truly commendable. The smooth turn of events , the thrill and the spill of climax , the way author has effortlessly switched from one scene to another and the artistic craft with which he has presented the college days reminisces one of their good old college days. I wish the cover page could have been a bit more sparkling . Nevertheless, my 3.5 stars for efforts of the author.

    'The Color of Love' is Mr. Joghee's second offering and a worthy addition to his repertoire after making an impressive debut with 'In Love and Free'. Love and more importantly, 'selfless love' is again given a central theme here and author builds up his story from two key geographical locations in Sharjah, Dubai and Coimbatore, India.

Love and more importantly, 'selfless love' is again given a central theme here and author builds up his story from two key geographical locations in Sharjah, Dubai and Coimbatore, India. Geography plays a key role in Mr. Joghee's work for I had noticed him using Sri Lanka's picturesque places like Kandy and Bentota for giving his story another twist in his first novel. Our protagonist, Sarfaraz, works as a senior sales manager for Michelin Tyre in Dubai and is a successful corporate personnel but he has got a rough past where he is not only labelled as a goon and thug but also loses (presumably) the love of his life, Meghna who he had come to recognize his true love after much deliberation and several confrontations with her friends and fiance. Sarfaraz's Muslim identity also gets questioned in the novel when a bomb blast in Coimbatore takes place but it's Meghna's love for him and her smartness that stops her father, prospective father-in-law and his fiance to have a crack at Sarfaraz. However, that bomb blast not only leaves the city of Coimbatore in tatters but also Sarfaraz's life as he discovers a gruesome truth immediately after this horrific incident. This truth gives birth to Sarfaraz's agony and he wants to live the city of his birth for good and one day, flies to Sharjah to start a new life but does he succeed in maintaining a harmless distance from his past? You have got to figure that out in the book!!!! The crux of the novel, given here, tells us a small story though and one albeit very simple. Mr. Joghee has worked tremendously well over his protagonist, Sarfaraz and given him a life full of contrasts. And then there are characters of Sidharth (Sarfaraz's sworn enemy), Mithun, Rameez (Sarafarz's so-called best friend), Vasudev (a friend in need), Avantika, Puja and Meghna (his true love). Each one has an importance here and they have all contributed to this novel's plot immensely. There is depth in the basic story line of Mr. Joghee's second novel and it's in stark contrast with his first offering which was much simpler in terms of plot but quite enriched in emotional and aesthetic values. 'Character development' is Mr. Joghee's forte and as described in detail above, he has again performed brilliantly. The book also scores heavily over all the technical points viz grammar, editing and proofreading that add to a reader's delight. Language used is simpler as compared to Author's first outing and it doesn't strain. The readers, with this book, will finally have a sense of fulfillment in terms of having a real, compounding work of literature.

Review: Jagdish sir has improved well in terms of storytelling and it is evident with his second book, The Colour of Love, which covers issues of politics, college romance, and the changes collegians go through in their love lives during their lives in college. Again, much of the story is given away in the blurb, but unlike In Love and Free, it doesn't hinder with the elements of surprise in TheColour of Love. Well done, Jagdish Joghee sir. The Colour of Love is the story of Sarfaraz who . Yeah, pretty much everything is covered in the blurb itself *laughs*. However, there are bits to be put together in order to understand the third part of the summary (blurb) where politics come into heavy play, like the beginning of the story when Sarafaraz is shown to be living abroad. Rating: The cover is beautiful and goes well with the story - 4/5 The blurb, again, gives away too much - 2.5/5 The story this time has been presented much better - 3.5/5 Hence, my overall rating is 3/5

    ‘The Colour of Love’ is a story of Sarfaraz and Meghna who are the protagonist of this novel. Jagdish Joghee has beautifully conceived this character who comes from a middle class family with its orthodox customs and so on. The protagonist as brought up around value systems falls prey to searching what he feels more essential to him and that is love. So that gives us the glimpse of the genre of the novel i.e. romance. The cover of the book is not that attractive but speaks for the genre. Languag ‘The Colour of Love’ is a story of Sarfaraz and Meghna who are the protagonist of this novel.

The cover of the book is not that attractive but speaks for the genre. Language of the author is comprehensible and simple. The author in this novel deals with themes of inter-religious marriages, terrorism, seeking for love etc. The story is simple though, it is predictable and given the fact that the industry is booming with romantic novels, this story stands no different except for the fact that it deals very interestingly with inter-religious marriages. I love romantic novels because they speak of love and that concerns it. But the author’s indulgence in getting obscene scenes looked artificial and unnecessary. Apart from it, I truly feel that this novel will win the hearts of the teenagers. As it is based in and around college life. The author could do better if he had given more attention to editing certain elaborate dialogues in the novel. Overall the story is good, interesting and expressed well.

    ‘The Colour of Love’ is Jagdish Joghee’s second novel. I had the opportunity to review his debut work- ‘In Love and Free’ a few days ago. If I compare the two books, I can clearly see the small steps taken by the author on the path to becoming a better writer. Though grammatical errors are still in abundance, the characters are etched in a mature way. The story has many twists and the climax is heart-warming. The author considers himself more of a storyteller than a writer. I have respect for Ja ‘The Colour of Love’ is Jagdish Joghee’s second novel.

He is passionate about the stories he wishes to tell us but needs someone who can fine tune the rough edges of the works composed by him. Here, the role of the publisher comes under scrutiny. The ‘editing’ and ‘proofreading’ of any manuscript is as much the responsibility of a publishing house as the author. But in this era of self-publishing, literary merit of many books has taken a severe beating. This novel, if edited properly would have been in a much better shape.
