Corners of a Straight Line tells the story of a young, confident journalist, Atharv, and his love escapades with four beautiful and dynamic women—Siya, Resham, Vedita and Susan. While Siya’s heart rules over his emotions and Resham’s careful moves captivate his body, Vedita’s intellectual pursuits stimulate his mind and Susan’s spirituality sways his soul.

But despite his many commitments, true love eludes him. In a world where lust trumps over love; and greed, depravity are rampant, will Atharv ever find what he is looking for?

Simple yet perceptive, Corners of a Straight Line is a compelling take on the many complexities of love.
