Local by Jaideep Verma is an emotional, touching tale of a young,

upcoming copywriter Aakash Bhasin. However, it is not merely a story of

the protagonist rather it is a story of all those who must leave behind

everything- family, friends, home and  their soul- in their quest for

success and recognition.

Verma uses the Bombay Local as an

interesting plot device to capture the insecurities and conflicts

raging in the mind of Akash. Not only is it symbolic of his frenzied

state of mind but also the nomadic life that Bhasin must endure to

achieve his goal.

For a relaively small length, Local packs in

a lot, which makes it difficult to describe it in a short review like

this. But, as I mentioned earlier,  at its core, Jaideep Varma's debut

novel is simply a tale of delusion and sacrifice in the pursuit of

perceived'success' . It might be titled Local but this book is global

in its appeal and its heart.

A wonderful read and a must for those who love emotion and drama.
