About the Book :
Circle of Three is the story of three people who have lost all hope in life. One day, their paths cross and their destinies are forever changed.
Thirteen year old Aryan Khosla has no friends, rarely meets his busy and quarrelling parents, and is tormented by a gang of school bullies. He feels his birth was a mistake and thinks no one would notice if he disappeared from this world.
Thirty-three year old Ria Marathe, a successful scriptwriter, lost her husband and only son in a terrible accident, and later came to know her childhood sweetheart husband was cheating on her for a long time. Faced with a lifetime of misery, she has decided to commit suicide.
Sixty-three year old Rana Rathod, a long forgotten author, has carelessly lived off the trust created by his wealthy family and feels betrayed by his two children who sided with his wife during their brutal divorce thirty years back. He fears he is going to die a bitter man.
Will Aryan lose his childhood to his loneliness? Will Ria lose her life to her tragedy? Will Rana lose his dignity to his past sins?
Circle of Three is about finding a new beginning in life, of forgiving and ultimately, finding hope.

He currently lives in Pune , a wonderfully vibrant city with his wife. He has a keen interest in history, especially the history of music and arts. One of the things he would like to get better at is photography.
When dealing with three parallel stories of three persons, who fall in different age bracket and belong to different social background, it’s really hard to maintain the distinct flavor for each of them, but Mr. Gore done that with a lot ease. Description of events and behavior of characters left me in admiration for Mr. Gore’s amazing narration capabilities. It’s really rare in Indian Literary scenario to see such an impressive narration. However, it’s slow, very slow and in my opinion; ‘Circle of three’ is really not meant to read it in one-go. It needs to be absorbed, from heart and soul and feel the pain and loneliness of the characters. On the language front, there are almost no grammatical errors, but few spelling and print mistakes do exist, but could be ignored. Mr. Gore has done a commendable job by maintaining the language simple yet captivating. Chapters are structured very well and are full of Mr. Gore’s minute observations that made characters more authentic and almost Real. ‘Circle of three’ is first book that I read the book thrice, instead of my regular read-twice-then-review ideology and never felt story losing its engrossing character. Every time I felt more involvement in the story and perfectly synched chapters made the book wonderful read. To conclude my review, I must say, by far ‘Circle of three’ is one of the best books by any young Indian Author. It takes you towards the hope and a better life through the stories of loneliness and pain of common people like many of us. The book gives a great message to society and is capable of making anyone see the brighter side of the life. Best thing about the book is that literally anyone can read it, because story is not targeted to any specific age group and it’s clean enough that you can blindly suggest it to anyone. The book is simply flawless in almost every manner. If Mr. Rohit Gore is working on any new project, I’d be looking forward to it with certainly higher expectations.
