Sunsets signify endings, a story has been wrapped and the characters lived, happily or otherwise that is the question. When the Cuckoo Called begins at this point like a story upside down, an inverted tale of passion, creativity, and love which teases these questions only to find answers at sunrise. A song is not complete without both music and lyrics. One winter, when a songwriter and a singer parted ways, a song was muted. Love was but an agony, perhaps there were greater things. But apart, happiness was a distant entity. When the cuckoo called, did spring really come at the behest of nature’s songbird? Tracing the shades of nature in seasons and days, draped in melody, a story unfolds across time and travels places to form a tale of two individuals, Lyla and Eeshaan, struggling with questions of authenticity, exploring their identities, and learning much about love. When everything seems to be happening at the wrong time in the wrong place, isn’t a story incomplete? The book is divided into four parts, not chronologically, drawing in the suspense.
