Ranikhet Express: Role Of Fate In A Love Story

The novel is a love song, which also carries the pain and equal bounty of uncertainty

Connecting India’s plains to lower hills further up North in Uttarakhand, the Ranikhet Express has a popular train route many visitors have fond memories of. Revolving his debut novel around the melodic rhythm of this night train to Pantnagar, author Dr. Piyush Baindara weaves a love story, in the time of PCOs and no internet.

Dr. Baindara is an emerging research scientist at the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, School of Medicine, University of Missouri, Columbia. Before moving to Columbia, he served as a research associate at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock. ‘Ranikhet Express: The Love Track’ is his first book.
