Magic Square debuted Salini Vinod as a fiction author.  The book's theme has the novelty of two daydreamer research scholars thrown into unfamiliar circumstances and inspiring one another.  

Magic Square marked Salini Vineeth's debut as a fiction author.  It's not the story of highfliers but lazybones or daydreamers or those thrown off the ambitious life trajectory in unforeseen circumstances, however, their stories inspired one another. 
Author:  Salini Vineeth
Type: Novella
Genre: Fiction

Amudha is PhD scholar, no research enthusiast, the middle child in the family bears no weight of the family expectations. 

 Dheeraj, doing his PhD research for six years and is the eldest in a family.  He is planning to sniff out something immoral from his supervisor, prof. Murthy's past to extort his degree.  Chemistry develops between them like two crabs joining claws to crawl out of grotesque depths. 

A joint mathematical adventure, in their planning, sets Amudha out on a mystery expedition.  She reaches out to unknown territories and meets L.V. Sreenivasan.  He gives her the best shot of his life story and a great piece of practical advice that inspires her to indulge herself in the feel of everything is the novella's theme.   

It's a familiar story made extravagant by the plot sequence and the author's charming writing style that made the eBook a page-turner. 

My observation is often she puts a character's thoughts in inverted commas where italicizing seems the norm.   
I wish the author all the best in conquering heights in her love --the writing.  Not an easy path, painful and rewarding.
