‘The Last Bloom’ is a story of Priya, her dreams, aspirations and struggles to fit
into her new college life and its politics.
Priya was ecstatic, as she was admitted to her dream college.
All her visions of adventurous rock climbing trips, long night jollification with
bosom friends, class bunking in lieu of movie shows, tasting lip smacking street side delicacies with classmates—a new exciting world would now unfold before her! But college is different from Priya’s idyllic dreams.In an environment as opposed to that of school, exposed to an educational system,which is controlled by political unions, will naïve Priya be able to survive without any political protection? Caught between the college hero Suvo’s charming words and her acrid tussles with conceited college dropout Vivek, will immature Priya be able to differentiate between cajoling false comrades and brutally honest well-wishers?
Often degraded by the skittish Shweta and saved by the blunt rebellious Aashi, will Priya be able to identify her friends and stand up for them, against fierce opposition? As Priya undertakes her journey of self-discovery, will she succumb to her deepseated
fears and insecurities or will she survive the ultimate test of time?
