“Patna Blues”, as the name says it all. The story revolves around the city of Patna and the people of that city. The city which is famous for many things, which includes IAS aspirants. This is not a story of IAS aspirant but a story of a middle-class boy who is just like us. A boy with dreams in his eyes to be an IAS officer so that he can make his parents proud and support his father in his old age. It is a story of falling in love with a girl just like any other person of that age. It is a story about 80% of the people of our country who works day and night to meet ends of their lives along with handling the burden of natural calamities, bomb blasts, riots, corruption, elections etc.
Author narrated ordeal and triumph of our lives through Arif and Sumitra. One can feel that these characters are not part of a book but we have met them somewhere at some point in our lives. The storyline has a flow which is beautifully maintained till the end. Mesmerizing poems and use of Urdu Shayari along with an intense yet simple translation of the same will make you fall in love with every character.
To know more about Arif and Sumitra and the city of love, Gyan and tasty food “Patna”, I would recommend “Patna Blues” by Abdullah Khan.
