The French Ambassador to India, H.E. Mr. Alexandre Ziegler launched the romantic fiction novel ‘Harp’ by entrepreneur Mr. Nidhi Dalmia at his residence on Nyaya Marg yesterday. Mr. Dalmia has always been ardently inclined towards writing, but his professional commitments kept him occupied. Writing Harp got him closer to his dream. The book is set in the late-sixties and revolves around the lives of three young protagonists.
Harp, a heartwarming love story set mostly in Europe, offers an interesting blend of characters and takes the reader through their notable progress. It is a story of love revolving around three central characters. Ashok, who belongs to an industrial background, wants to learn more about dairy production. He travels from India to Europe, where he meets a musician Lauren and falls in love with her. As the story progresses, he falls in love with an Indian girl named Aparna. The story is refreshing as it a contrast to the regular love stories.
Speaking about the launch Mr. Dalmia said, “It is truly an honor to be here and to have my book launched by H.E. Mr. Alexandre Ziegler. Harp is a romantic novel which speaks a lot about travel, music and culture. The book is partly set in France especially Paris – The City of Love. It is fitting that it is being launched at the French Embassy Residence.”
Mr. Dalmia read excerpts from his book and interacted with author-journalist Vajju Naravane and the audience. This was followed by cocktails. The evening ended on a high-note with Mr. Dalmia signing copies of Harp for guests in the lawn.
