About the book:

A book that’s going to be a bestseller: seems to have vengeance and pathos etched out of the very heart that was once docile and innocent to the cunning ways of the world- the running praises of the book, and even my pixie ears told to give it a try. Time to time chat with the author- Nitya Prakash and the stunning cover made me do something only reserved for more dearie books. Yes! The trotter carried the book along with her, tucked safely in her backpack. Each time the co passenger dared to peep- I grew super possessive of Nitin, then of Toolika and then of Shenyl and Divya. Kicking off my addiction to bound papers (read books)- lets plunge into Nitin’s life and predicament- for every tear has a story to tell.
First of all the commoner lines. The story starts with an accident of a young man- and there is also a lady looming around- keeping me guessing- will there be chemistry between the two. I tell my athletic brain, “dude! halt- it’s got to be flashback!” and yes my voice was right. Dear, I hate you- is a story of a man craving inwardly for love and like most of his fellow “men” is confused when his heart wins over his senses. The “tin yaari “/ the three musketeers- Kabir, Manav and our Nitin seem to be tied from their days spent in cradles. And the ties thin out only when schools days bid them melancholic farewell. Life takes a full swing when Nitin encounters with his college life and becomes a soft victim of ragging. But is Dear I hate You about student abuse? No! it’s about a journey of a boy growing into a man- winning hearts, accolades and committing the mistake of not telling a white lie to his childhood crush. A death marks a black hole in his fate-making me thinking- stories of our lives or most original than the fiction we urge to pen down.
Nitya keeps telling me- Dear I hate you is based on real incidents. So there was one Toolika who loved one Nitin perhaps like Eustacia Vye- and also a friendly Shenyl  and a Divya—Keeping questions unanswered for readers to judge. Honestly Nitin, seems quite an emotional being- man of the world- not a playboy- but a playful boy- who grew up only when life was too eager to write down his ending chapters.
