Upon arriving in America, I realized the significance of this book “Running from the Dreamland” in my life. I am immensely grateful to Dr. Tulasi Acharya for introducing this wonderful book, which has made my life more comfortable and enjoyable here in the USA.

His journey begins when he realizes the dreamland is not how he thought it could be. He even falls in love with an American girl, but finally explores the reality of dreamland. He quickly realizes that the reality is very different from his dreams.

Throughout the novel, we see Dipak struggling to adapt to a new culture, language, and way of life, while also trying to come to terms with his own identity and past. He faces numerous obstacles, including discrimination and scarcity, but also finds friendship and support from those around him. Through Dipak’s eyes, we get a glimpse of the immigrant experience, and the challenges and opportunities that come with it.

The novel also explores some romantic love relationship and also invites readers to contemplate what is important in love, reflecting on the love relationship of Lucas and Vanessa and Dipak and Malissa. Malisa assumes that Dipak also loves her deeply, but that doesn’t come out to be true for her later. According to Melissa’s society, she has her own understanding of what kind of life partner she should have. However, Dipak may not have had the same level of maturity in the relationship, perhaps. This shows that Dipak and Malisa had different definitions of their love relationship. Dipak is the main character, so the story revolves around him.
