Oops! I fell in for Don's Daughter: A Review
The debut work of Piyush Naik, Oops! I fell in for Don's Daughter, is about the romance and heartache of school days. The carefree days of school where all you have to think about is your homework and the impending exams. There is no ego of the boss to think about or how will you pay the next month's phone bill.

Life was ten shades happier in childhood. Piyush Naik tries to explore the territory of school crushes, romances, friendships and a lot more. He, at 18, is written a novel that is according to his sensibility and what he had witnessed till now. 

Because of this reason, the novel seems autobiographical in nature. He evokes the nostalgia of childhood, school and also the friends we made and lost during that time.

The novel is about a guy name Piyansh, who is the guy next door. He is trying to figure out his tenth board when at one of his tuitions, he sees the most beautiful girl. As faith will have it, he falls madly in love and wants the girl. 

The problems are many and the guy will not be deterred. This is the crux of the story; Piyansh trying to woo the girl of his dreams but the fact remains, loving her is dangerous, not only for his studies but for his health too.

The girl he loves is the daughter of the Local Don of his town. The story is written in Basic English language and not a lot of linguistic genius can be expected from the book as the author is just 18.

What the reader does get and I did, was the honesty and simplicity of school days. He has managed to make the characters realistic and believable as he is going through and have gone through the same phase. The book is a breezy read and can be finished in one go.

The good aspects of the book are that the characters are less, story moves at a brisk pace and the carefree attitude of the school is reflected in the book. The bad aspects of the book are the editing, the lack of coherence and also at times the languid pace at which the story moves. Piyush Naik, for a debut, has done a good job.
