Reality Bytes Bites : Not So Innocent Love Story - Book Review

A book by Anurag Anand. A complete fiction and school romance.

First thing the title, after completing the book I really couldn't relate the title with the book content. When it says "Not So Innocent Love Story" you feel there should be something different but well, that's not the case.

The story starts with a normal student life and his first day in one of the "good colleges" . The anxiety and excitement for any new student is narrated quite well. And after a bit of narration the story goes into flashback ...... School DAYS!!!!

And then the usual drama starts. School Hostel, Mess, seniors, and more over the Co-Ed thing! That's been a punch in the book.

Anybody who has lived in a hostel would surely be able to relate himself with that. The story is not uncommon but has a grip! You shouldn't be bored of the book ever.

Although you can easily make out at the very start who would be the hero's love at the end. The twist and turns are somewhat missing (well, I agree its not a suspense novel) but still the author has tried to put in efforts to give it a twist which is not very much appreciated.

Overall a time-pass novel. Could be finished in a day !

And so my remote in in MY HAND and after every 15 mins I need to press the SWAP button .

Few things Left Unsaid – Book Review

This was the first book I purchased from flipkart. Well, I was impressed. On time delivery and delivery at your door step. What else you need and all that at some discount.

I read about the author Sudeep Nagarkar born in 1988, well to publish your own book at the age of 23 is a commendable job. Hats off to you. But book is bit disappointing.

First thing the publisher- srishti publications, they have jumbled up the pages . If you buy a book make sure to notice the page numbers from 72 to 89, they are not in sequence. That was really a bad impression for a person whose first book is getting published.

Now about the book, its an Indian Mills and Boon’s each page narrates the daily activities of the engineering days, each day of first year is described in detail. Its more like eating, talking, sleeping narration. Sometimes he has also described what they ordered in McD’s and Pizza hut ! 

The language is very normal as we use, plain English. Something coming up as a book well personally I don’t appreciate it.

Another thing, I really want to count how many times they have used ‘love you” miss you in that book. In fact that can be a contest for this book, one who guesses the exact count would get a free book signed by the author.Just Kidding  ;)

Then the story line may be a college goer would be all in dreams with this novel as a perfect romancing couple is described out there. A girl and a boy meet and then they fight, break up with each other and then they meet or not(Well you have to find out that). But there is nothing extra , that intensity and zeal are missing. I feel even if you skip 2-3 chapters, you won’t feel that you have missed the storyline. The gravity to bind us to a book is neglected.

And then the end, he tried putting some coincidences’ (well as is said by the author, it’s a  true love story) which I don’t feel to be the perfect ending. It could have been better.

Well, I didn’t enjoy it at all. You could improve Mr Sudeep Nagarkar.

Breaking News- Benefits!

Well, nothing much is happening after that Ramdev –UPA drama and now that I’m just so irritated by his face that its better I don’t talk about it.

But then our lunch session get boring. Well, we need to have some “breaking news” to criticize, discuss, argue, and blame others then only food gets digested otherwise  it remains undigested and then we (read it as IT people) need to walk after lunch which is against our work culture.

Our work culture is well defined .You are just made to “Sit & Stare” .

Okay leave IT people, they are “good for nothing” …. I was talking about my lunch sessions so as there was no topic to discuss we were eating… in fact swallowing, when we have some breaking news we can do “jugali” what cow and buffaloes do, so food gets digested easily and then we can work towards our aim… i.e. Sit & Stare.

Another reason is when you have breaking news you put in all your frustration/anger in criticizing  or finding flaws in it . ( Well we IT people can hardly appreciate anything ) and so you vent out all your negative feeling which gives you more positive enrgy and then that’s the reason just after lunch you feel sleepy. So relaxed you are. You just need a bed. Isn’t?

Breaking News .... We are missing you!

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara - Some Good Lyrics

I'm just in love with these words

dilon mein tum apni betabiyan leke chal rahe ho
to zinda ho tum
nazar mein khabwon ki bijliyan leke chal rahe ho
to zinda ho tum
hawa ke zhokon ke jaise azad rehna sako
tum ek dariya ke jaise lehron mein beh na sako
har ek lamhe se tum milo
khole apne baahein
har ek pal ek naya samba dekhiye
jo apni aankhon mein hairaniyan leke chal arhe ho
to zinda ho tum
dilon mein tum apni betabiyan leke chal rahe ho
to zinda ho tum

View From Office!

With record breaking tallest buildings and shrinking living space , its hard to find sky visibilty! View from my office ...Clouds were appering as if they are ordered to model in that fashion, not an inch from here to there.  Not that great.... But clear sky ... sunny day made me feel fresh!
Just woken up after a long sleep!

The Kept Woman and Other Stories - Book Review

Whenever I see such books with short stories , I'm totally hypnotized and there my hands start itching. So thats the only reason I bought it.

Now as my daily routine goes, I read them before sleeping. So each day I used to start with it and then after a dose of "real life drama" , and a tear drop in my eyes I used to keep this book aside and so it took a whole two weeks for me to complete it.

So, you guys might have gota review of how the book is?Each and every story starts with a simple background, routine life scene but ends with pain. Each story is woven in so plain but impactful words that it forces you to think and react. Some of the words are just so beautiful . Sample these

A woman in love is never satisfied if her lover remembers her with only one part of his body. She wishes to grow like a cancer within him , to fill him with awareness and pain. That is special cruelty of love

And one thing that millionaires earn along with their wealth is enmity.Therefore, with the passage of time, they come to fear their own shadows. Each of them belives that his greatest enemy is the dark shadow that comes creeping up from behind. To escape from the clutuches of these shadows they present the beggars on the beach with coins ,donate money to charitable institutions,build holy temples and renovate dilapidated ones.

The author has combined in her writings rare honesty and sensitivity.Its about man-woman relationship and covers all dimensions. But each story reflects "the loss" when a relationship dies or when there is betrayal be by death or self!

A bit of saddist, not recommended for leisure reading. But you should really read if you want to get a taste of real life tragedy!

Although at night , I used to dream of those stories happening to me but still once you start reading you don't feel like there is nothing which can't happen to you. You get engrossed so much in the story that you feel you are a part of story may be as a witness...

Diamond Or Cyanide!

I was gifted by a diamond ring during my wedding and somehow I don’t know (how? I m figuring it out) I had build a habit of  biting it when I thinking something.

And one day when my colleague saw  that same act he said (yeah he was not that serious).. 

Arrey diamond nahi chatna chaiye.
Mar jaate hain ! 

I was like what? 

And then he started justifying … pehle filmo mein nahi dikhate the… 

and then I recalled it was true… all smugglers/murderers  used to have a locket hanging in there neck and as soon as police used to catch them they used to eat that and die.And there was that white foam used to come out of there mouth.But then I thought, no it was cyanide! 

But I’m also getting that feeling that it was not cyanide but diamond

But nothing happened to me as of now!

Well, does anybody remember if it was diamond/cyanide?
