we-will-meet-again1.jpg

Cover- The cover surely is eye catching and has soft colour scheme that mesmerises the readers.

Title- The title is enthralling and the way we come to know the literal meaning of it in the end is just perfect. A well thought title.

Blurb- We will meet again is the story of Paridhi, a mass media student in Delhi. Life for Paridhi is all about course assignments, lost pen drives and urgent submissions. Harried and running against an unexpected deadline, she bumps into Abhigyan, a young, good-looking, wealthy young man – every girl’s dream. This meeting however isn’t one bit romantic. She meets him again at her best friend’s wedding. While he is clearly falling for her she is rude and angry and rebuffs him all the way. However, Abhigyan is not one to give up easily.

Setting- The settings taken up in the novel is mind blowing. I am personally connected to Jalandhar as its my hometown and the way the author has told about Punjabi weddings is completely amazing. Every Punjabi can relate to it. Then the Delhi and Mumbai sequences are brilliant.

Plot- The plot construction is simple and gripping. It is devoid of any digressions. This is a story of PAridhi whose life journey from a mass student to an independent Magazine Editor is delineated in the book. In this course we come across, Abhigyan who enlightens Paridhi’s life in the most interesting way.

Themes- This novel has many themes and the way they cover every segment is impeccable. The major theme highlighted in this novel is Marriage. The story starts with a marriage sequence of Paridhi’s friend where she comes across Abhigyan closely. THen, the other side is of PAridhi and Abhigyan’s wedding.

Love- HAte Relationship-PAridhi and Abhigyan share a love hate relationship which looks beautiful as well as entertaining. The way they argue over things and end up caring or helping each other is worth reading.

Friendship- This book is a celebration of friendship and the way Paridhi and her best friend stay is commendable. Both are each other’s confidantes and the way they stay with each other can remind you of your own best friend.

Parenthood- Paridhi is raised by her father who helps her in many ways. He always encourage her to do things and is proud of her. When he gets terribly sick, Paridhi turns no stone unturned to save him.

Sisterhood- Paridhi shares a close bond with her sister and that is why she takes her to her friend’s wedding. She always guard  her like her own child. She even instructs her like a mother and shares secrets with her like her friend. When she wears her dress after she comes back from hostel is sweet. The sisters bond is very co- relatable.

Characterisation- The author has beautifully mastered in creating her characters. It can be said that the author has used limited characters and mastered them. The main characters turn out to be the best. Paridhi is an amazing girl who has dusky skin and is doing mass communication. She is an interesting character who is always busy in her tests, assignments and the way she look at things is different. She doesn’t trust anybody easliy because of a terrible past.  She is a true friend, caring sister, adorable daughter. Abhigyan brings change in her life and tries his best to sort her notions.

Abhigyan is a rich guy with a drastic life which he never shares with anyone. He is helpful, caring, handsome and witty at the same time. When he comes across Paridhi, he is surprised to see a simple girl and the way she refuses him all the time. This boost him and he challenges her to win her heart. He takes care of everybody and becomes the apple of everyone’s eyes.

Style- The author has used simple language to convey her transparent thoughts. The story is written in first person narrative. Some sentences are simply amazing. There are certain editing errors which looks like some black spots in the beautiful book. It is not a fairy tale but a common story told in a unique way.

Why I Liked the Book?

I am a Punjabi, Jalandharite and can relate to the location pretty well.

The relations like father- daughter, sisterhood are co- relatable and one can feel that its their story.

Book Review of The Three Wise Monkeys

The Three Wise Monkeys by Jeet Gian is a light hearted novel flavoured with humor and loads of puns. This novel shows us that the author has planned to laugh our hearts out while reading.

Cover- The cover has light coloured scheme and perfectly proves the motive as it has three monkeys in the most wierdest poses which will surely make you laugh. This gives us an idea about the element of humor being a major part.

Title- The title is witty and grabds the attention of the reader. Three Wise Monkeys is an apt title which is a pun intended by the author.

Blurb- The trio – Amar, Akbar, and Anthony – had no clue whatsoever about their goddammit indecisive careers – and – indefinite – struggles.

And that was because they were born with the Peter Pan Syndrome and were simple enough to be tricked by anyone, including their mystifying girlfriends – Meghna, Farah, and Sarah.

And as is the fate of all morons, they were drawn into trouble – deep trouble – of hiding crores of rupees of black money in secret offshore companies.

Will their mistake of turning a blind eye to the philosophy of ‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ cost them their careers and put them in prison?

Or

Will Lady Luck change their fortunes forever?

Plot- The plot is gripping as it revolves around the lives of three people Amar, Akbar and Anthony and the way they handle the situations in the most humourous ways. They have serious issues but always tackle them with their witty attitude even if they are in grave trouble.

HUmour as an Element- The author has artisitically added humour in his novel and the use of witty dialogues related to politics and bollywood is appreciable.

Theme- The themes of relationships, love, comedy, corruption can be noticed in this novel.

Characterisation- The author has crafted his characters artistically. All have their own stories be it Amar, Akbar, Anthony or their girlfriends. The way the girlfriends play with them makes the readers pity them sometimes. The situations created are extremely serious but depicted in a light manner.

Style- The style of author is simple, lucid and pithy. The way he has used puns, witty sentences, comedy of manners is mind blowing. The readers end up with hearty laughter in the end.

Book Review of Flavours of India

Flavours of India by Pulkit Gupta is a collection of sixteen short stories bringing in the wide variety that the country is known for. The authors have inked in different perspectives and the hidden practices of the various parts of the country. India still continues to puzzle the visitors with its unexplored terrains, however the stories in this collection have attempted to uncover the blanket a little bit and let you peep in. You will notice how several parts of the country are still lurking in the dark-superstitions, child education, poverty, women safety, child marriages, dowry practices, political turmoil, communal riots, terrorism are some problems that the country faces. So is the Incredible India really incredible?

The stories are beautifully woven and all have highlighted a certain place and its environment. The authors have used their styles and techniques of writing starting from stream of consciousness to flashbacks to descriptive techniques. The cover of the book is colourful and fantastic with a picture of Taj Mahal that talks about a story set up in Agra. The title of the book is mind blowing and it clearly satisfies the purpose of making up this anthology.

Land of SPices by NIdhi Parikh is a beautiful poem that has all the elements of poetry including similes, metaphors and has a wonderful literal meaning.

Zaffron by Abhishek ‘Atul’ takes me back to my own visit to KAshmir. The descriptions are well written and the story of Kashmiri Pandits and the others is heart warming and the way Zaffron name is used takes away the hearts of the readers.

When Avarice Strikes by Mangala gives us a fowl picture of child marriage, domestic violence in a small Tamil village. The traditions are main focus and the way they are ruthlessly followed is being delineated and the readers end up in tears after reading this tale.

The Way We See by Shikha KAul elucidates a story about a journalist and a man. The story is all about different perspectives towards life and it stores a deeper message in the end.

A Pious Endearment by KInshuk Gupta’Vitaan’ takes us to the city of dreams, Mumbai and we come across two people who are made for each other and destiny plays all the games to bring them together.

A Ray of Hope by Himanshi ‘Nandi’ is a story of Asha and her struggle. The way she changes her life by helping people and the return gift she gets is miraculous.

A Spicy Kerala Honeymoon by Durgesh Shastri is an erotic tale of a couple who come on a honeymoon. They are poles apart and when they come across each other they began to love and respect each other more.

The Gujju Gyan by Rachna Sheth takes to the Gujju environment and we can best relate to the most loved show ‘Tarak MEhta ka OOlta CHashma’. The story of dreams, fun and the way the author has written that poem is marvalous.

The Accursed Land by Siddharth Jain is a typical domestic story that focusses on Anirudh and his dreams.

Baisakhi by Mehek Bassi takes us to the land of five rivers, Punjab and crafts her story in Ludhiana where a teenage punjabi boy tries hard to make a dead car work. He is diabled and the way he takes initiatives is really motivating.

Eroding Shackles by Kumar Vikrant is a story that elucidates different set of people with some dreams in their eyes and they meet at a same place where destiny takes us to main characters Rashmi and Karan.

THe Harvest Moon by Mangala again talks about the lives of the Tamils and the way things take place.

Roots by Harshita Shrivastav is a motivating story where a girl names Aisha finds the reason of her living when she meets Dushyant, a 4th class outcaste student.

At JOurney’s End by Soumyadeep Koley gives us a tragic picture of Kolkata where a mother has to prove her child her innocence and the then the tables turn on a more tragic end.

Love in a Sea SHell by SUpriya Parulkar is a mind blowing saga of two individuals and the way the story is dealineated is appreciable.
