‘Vinculum’ in essence means a stepping stone, an isthmus, and that is what this book is. It is an isthmus between adolescence and maturity, between dreams and reality and between happiness and sorrow.
Vinculum is a simple, heartwarming tale of five adolescents from different backgrounds thrown together in an environment as fascinating as a medical college, in a locale as romantic as Shimla.

Vinculum is a fiction based on personal relations, but is also a fast-read one as any of James Hadley Chase’s thrillers. The story in Vinculum is remarkable in that a dead person makes nightly visits to the author of the book Dr Jaideep Singh Chadha for seven long years persuading him to reminisce their eventful college life and stops coming the day the story is completed. Hard to believe, nevertheless true.
