Cover- The cover surely gives a clue about her important themes which are to be talked in the book. Hence, it fascinates the reader.

Title- Just as elemets of nature work for a proper cycle to be maintained same way, Elements of Life work to make our mind in better way. This is the apt title she came our with.

What the book is about?

Well the book comes under Motivation and Inspiration genre. This book showcase the four elements of life : Air which signifies authenticity; Fire that signifies compassion; Water that signifies courageousness and Earth signifies Gratefulness. These comes under the first section and the author narrates incidents and anecdotes on the base of these elements. The sunject matter revolves arounf this.

The second section includes the JOurnal entries of the author. She focusses on two main things : I Say Yes to Life and Yes, I can. These two parts fills us with new hopes and vibes which help us to forget our hard times. Furthermore, it gives us the strength to move ahead with new spirits and positivity.

The third section includes Rendezvous Reflections where the author has penned down an enthralling poem.

Style – The book is an easy read. The language used is lucid and the author has used pithy style of writing at some places. The narratives are personal as well as impersonal. The descriptions are beautiful. The use of transfer epithets, metaphorical words, allusions, anecdotes, similes makes the reading more fruitful. Every line is a highliter for me and the author’s inspiration towards Paulo Coelho could be noticed as her first page always includes a quote by him :

“And, when you go back, you havw to worry only about the best way of moving forward.”

~Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Other favourites :

“Just enforce the seed of discipline; forge strong self- belief and start scaling success for a very peaceful and beautiful life.”

“Don’t forget that your strength lies in the choices that you make.”

“Socrates once said: THe unexamined life is not worthy living.”

Cover- The cover of the book is fascinating. It enthralls the readers.

Blurb-Patience helps you endure all the troubles and issues that bother you. When you reach a stage, where the only remaining option is to release the things that are clinging on to you and pause your life, you feel enlightened and feel the positive impact of the change, and you no longer see yourself a victim of life.

 Kaleidoscope – Colours of Life is a of inspiring stories, suggestive poignant thoughts and ideologies that serve as a guide in every stage of life. Interlaced with threads of experiences of life and the lessons learnt from them, the book depicts seven inspiring stories weaved into the magnificent array of a rainbow. Charting the various shades of life, the book further highlights the ups and downs of each of the characters, who are embedded here as a metaphor for a rainbow, in the patio of a plethora of circumstances.
By sharing wisdom, experiences and insights, Kaleidoscope – Colours of Life intends to deliver a message that will inspire and empower the readers to sense happiness and contentment, and help them to navigate life as a truly confident individual.
Title- The title is superb as it talks about the colours in one’s life.
Style-  The book is divided into two parts where part1 is Rainbow that talks about seven colours of rainbow and its significance in one’s life. The stories associated to them is amazing and especially the Confident Blue reflects  the seriousness and misery of life.
The next part is Contrast and Hues which talks about basic facts of life and talks about many things that reflects on our life. The author has beautifully explained simple fundas of life in an anecdotic way.
Not only this, the language is simple and lucid. It has brevity in it. Furthermore, the author has used quotes from various authors and scholars to prove her point. The last,” Keep Smiling – A living Series” gives us really good vibes.
