Product description

Product Description

Love is poison that kills you. Love is elixir that keeps you alive. An unreciprocated love keeps you alive, but kills every day.

Heartbroken Sunny lives a reclusive life, trapped in the past, living in his memories. He has no complaints about his life, but refuses to embrace the present.

Saloni is a prostitute who is desperate to earn money by any means. She does not care about exploiting others to fulfill her purpose.

Fate unites the loner and the prostitute to embark on a life changing journey of retribution and self discovery.

Lovelorn Sunny turns misogynistic after Sandy, the only girl he loved walks away from his life, unannounced. He suffers painful solitude for almost two decades with the relentless haunting of her thoughts. A distressed friend Imran, vows to change his life forever. A surprise planned for his birthday turns into a tragedy that claims the life of his dear friend, triggering a series of unbelievable events. As Imran gets killed by a stranger, Sunny’s calm life suddenly turns into a turbulent storm. With nothing left to live for, vengeance becomes his ultimate mission. His reluctant alliance with a prostitute to trace the killer sets him onto a nerve racking adventure of life and death.

Both are bound to a common goal with different motives, but destiny has its own motive.

A walk in the rain is an intricate tale of intense emotions, driven by hair raising twists and turns.

Presenting Mr. Udai Yadla's debut book A Walk in the Rain. A simple and moving story.Simple narration of the story. No fancy lines or drama to depict the plight of prostitutes or devdas life of Sunny.The characters are well etched. I liked that the female protagonists are strong spirited.The way the locations are described give them an old small world charm. The description of the way friendship and lives evolves in small towns make them last a lifetime.
For a debut novel, its a good one time read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love redeems! 27 February 2017
By Indywrites - Published on Amazon.com

A WALK IN THE RAIN is a love story with revenge, lost love and second chances. It is the story of Sunny, who having lost his first love from his school days is still living in the past. His girlfriend Sandy is also missing as we try to learn of what is going on in their lives now. A bit of flashback and a bit of present-day take the story forward.

His friend Imran who is a goon himself, along with Sunny gets them both in trouble and is killed. Strangely, of the lot of his friends, Sunny is the only one who seems to be doing an honest job. I was also interested in the parallel story of Saloni and her prostitute friend Pooja who has a sort of love affair with Sam. The book, A Walk In The Rain is about second chances and not judging. No one wants to become a prostitute wilfully. Yet, our attitude towards them is full of scorn and disgust.

Sunny too feels very angry with Saloni, a prostitute. She is the only one who can lead sunny to Imran’s killer. He asks her help to track down Imran’s killer in lieu of payment and she agrees since she needs the money. The premise was a bit farfetched since an ordinary person would not be able to locate seasoned goons especially within a day or two. The police are also on their hunt, looking for the persons involved in the fight that killed Imran.

The two of them need to stay together and help each other even though they don’t want to. Slowly they discover the truth about each other and end up helping each other. A relationship based on money turns into friendship.

The story has a couple of subplots, Pooja and her friend, Imran and his brothers, the evil goon Victor, the sick parents and the past stories of Sunny and Pooja. They work well into the story. It could improve with tighter narration since few parts seemed repeated from another point of view. The book needs a good round of editing since the language is a bit awkward in places

“Sam stood where he was, with his jaws dropped in disbelief and eyes wet.”

“He knew that she was trying to ease him despite her pain.”

“Yes… Imran was a rare fun.”

“Find me tomorrow and propose me.”

The climax is especially heartwarming as both Sunny and Saloni meet their true selves. The author made their reunion special with the rain and tied all the threads and subplots together with a credible ending. Love triumphs and freed from the shackles that held it. The ending left me with a smile and I could visualise the lovers walking down the beach enjoying the rain.
4.0 out of 5 stars Bollywoodish! 28 February 2017

Udai Yalda makes his debut with the novel named, "A Walk in the Rain'. As I turned the pages, I have no clue why the I suddenly remembered the movie Baaghi. Though the protagonist Sunny has no resemblance to Salman Khan's character in the movie, but the feel of a prostitute running with the guy from the villains, in this case, had a very Bollywood feel. I cannot say that is an original story but the execution wise, yes it's different. There is a certain rawness in this story. Characters are not sugar coated or made larger than life. They are downright normal humans in a bad situation.

The love story between Sunny and Saloni are not a simple boy meets a girl story. The layers are well formed and the author has brought out the chemistry between the characters well. The emotions are build up between Sunny and Saloni due to them falling in love irrespective of the fact that they hated each other.

“Sandy Candy.” Now he called louder, which was unmistakable. She couldn’t fool herself this time. After a brief attempt to defy the eventuality, she finally gave in, deciding to embrace her everlasting dream, tantalizing her for some time, testing her endurance. She abruptly stopped, still hesitant to turn around to face him."
You get the picture?

While this being a debut novel, many readers will overlook a few errors but having words oft repeated is regressive to a reader. And the adjectives used in a few places need to be looked into. "Obnoxiously stubborn punk" "obnoxious look" "obnoxious stare" and again "obnoxious look" can seriously be avoided. But nothing a good editor cannot rectify. While this is one downside in the novel the upscale would be an interesting story. Mr. Yalda does know how to tell a story and there is no doubt about that.

And a sense of humor. A very subtle, mocking sense of humor.

It was a Nepali kukri knife which he won from a ludomaniac Gurkha during one of his rare gambling successes.

Ludomaniac Gurkha and such odd phrases will definitely bring out a smile in some very serious situation. A lot of action and a fast pace made this book a good read.

The narration is good and crispy...author tried to maintain
the curiosity how sandy and sunny would meet, but I feel he fell short of expectations when they realized each other.
Author is good in maintaining the pace
Has good insight on women issues and proved that love is related to soul and not external body
My personal opinion is that in the last chapter he should have concentrated more on how sunny recognize sandy and his emotional feelings towards her and cut short the description in killing Hari
Finally a worth of reading work from a debut writer and hope he continues with different writing.
Guess another story in place for bollywood

By Suniti GK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Walk in the rain by Udai is yet another good book to read .It has all the components which readers look out for ..these days .
Udai has written the emotions of male protagonist and his search to find out the truth behind the murder and heartily peace in a gripping way .

The story is written in rhythmic phase from loss of love to finding the destined love with a murder twist in it .
Even though it is Udai′s debut novel he has done justice to his book.

The USP of this book is prostitute ..

I loved the ending in this book.Salute to this newbie author .
Udai has written this book in enthralling way with a subtle reminder that “People who are destined to be living together will meet under any dare circumstances ”.
