The kind of romance this novel has is unique and different — it is build on tears, realistic separation, cultural clashes, and most importantly on the conflict of interests between Maya and her father Professor Vishnu.

Also, the story has been narrated in favour of women’s point of view, it is likely that no sooner than later it is going to be an Amazon Bestseller in the romance genre.
“Maya is a powerful character — though silent, yet unforgettable! The length and pace of the novel is just optimum, no burden, no boredom! Even if you close the book, the story of Maya will not leave your memories so easily. Ketan has delivered a fantastic romance novel, that too, from the female point of views.” — Kevein Books and Reviews
