Book Review – The Last Bloom – Poulomi Sengupta

Title:  The Last Bloom
Author:  Pouloumi Sengupta
Genre:  Fiction
Publisher:  Leadstart Publishing PvtLtd
Format:  Paperback
Pages:  394

Blurb of the book:

‘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 naive 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 deep-seated fears and insecurities or will she survive the ultimate test of time?”

Review

Authors like Pouloumi Sengupta make us think like yes, there’s so much more to write and ponder about other than Rain and romance. I would like to appreciate author’s effort for taking up such an interesting topic.

You always wish to travel back to the time which you always define as “The Golden Period of your Life” yes; you got me right, I’m talking about the college life. This book had elements to take me back to those days which I was missing since months. The lead character of this book Priya was a strong character weaved perfectly by the author. I would appreciate writer’s describing skills here as the way author kept all the scenes and different details in a sequence that as a reader I never felt out of the pace. I would genuinely like to appreciate author’s writing skills.

Various aspects were taken up by the Author while penning down this interesting tale called “The Last Bloom” as this book talks about different aspects altogether such as Politics, college, difference in environment, different opinion, dreams and aspirations and other struggles  which a normal student might face as a part of life.

Language has always been an important medium for us to communicate wherever we want to. Author took up this issue in an interesting manner. How does language affect students in colleges and how problematic it becomes for students to deal with language barriers. I would like to congratulate Author for taking up an issue which is indeed serious but hardly discussed and taken into consideration.

Another positive point I found in the book is, language used by the author is easy going that will make easier for a reader to connect with the story line.

Conclusion:

Books like these need to be promoted for some obvious reasons. This book has all the elements to get a tag of a Best Seller.

Even though this book is written by a debut writer the way description is done, the way out of the box thought process is shown and the way whole story is weaved is truly commendable. I had a great time reading this book and as a reader I loved how this book turned up.  I would recommend this book to you if you are fond of reading new and exciting subjects. If you like to read fresh writers and their fresh thoughts, this book deserves to be given a chance.

Marriage: Other side of the coin

Yesterday was one such evening for me, when one simply feels like cutting off with everything else for a while and spending some good time with oneself. 

I sat at the corner seat of the park as all other benches were already taken. I chose cold coffee as my companion. I sipped my cold coffee and was totally lost in my thoughts. I was wondering about the changes I had been through in these months after getting married. So much have changed, I told myself. 

In childhood, when dad use to travel for his business commitments I use to cry for hours because I couldn’t stay away from him not even for a single day and today it’s been more than 6 months I haven’t seen him in person, I haven’t hugged him and bargained about my pocket money and I haven’t seen him laughing on my childlike expressions, my eyes were filled up with tears by then. 

The best thing about thoughts and stories are that they never leave you alone. Never.

After sometime, one young south Indian couple came exactly where I was sitting and sat beside me. Maybe, they couldn’t find any other vacant bench at the park. That lady smiled at me as she sat beside me. I smiled back. 

She had a dusky skin tone, long curly black hair which were tugged in a ponytail, she had applied a thick line of sindoor and a maroon lipstick which definitely made her look beautiful. Her gold ornaments were shining bright. That guy had a darker skin tone than her but with his dressing sense I could make out he belonged to a good family. 

They started chit chatting about random things which I literally ignored. After sometime, that lady spoke in a soft tone, she expressed her wish to visit her parents for a few days as she was missing them terribly. 

She was patiently waiting for his reply. He while flipping through the phone asked her casually, what would you do there? Why do you want to pay them a visit? I was stunned. I looked at them with my eyes wide open. I swear, I didn’t pay any attention to their earlier talks, I hardly even looked at them but the way this communication was shaping up, I couldn’t ignore, I stared at both of them for some sixty seconds I literally forgot to take my eyes off, because I was deeply shocked and saddened with what that guy said to her wife. 
It’s literally unbelievable to realize how a women’s life changes completely in an instance after marriage. They literally have to carry “Mrs” before their name and this weight gradually shifts into their life. 

I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. His words broke my heart. As a woman, I could understand what it means to stay away from a family. It must have killed her inside to hear that she needs to take permission or literally plead to go and stay at her own parents’ house for some days. 

She is not only a wife or a daughter in law. She’s someone’s daughter too. 

They spent all their savings to get her married in a “good family”. They had spent all that they had behind her education and given her the best of whatever they had and today she’s asking for a permission to pay them a visit. 

Only a working woman will be provided an opportunity to enjoy equal rights rest will be suffering even today? 

Before he could say anything his phone buzzed. His facial expressions depicted that it was someone’s special call. He received the call instantly, got up and walked away.
That lady didn’t move. She didn’t utter a word. Maybe, because she was unable to find words which could convince him. I looked at her, I tried to read her eyes. She was blank. Expressionless.

Our surrounding was full of noises. Children were playing around, people of almost all age groups were smiling, talking, cheering and in a way were writing some new stories. At that moment, I realized, how much I miss my parents. I miss them so much that I see them in my dreams almost every day.  She tried to act normal and passed a fainted smile as he returned.

He kind of ignored her sad expressions and went on with his part of the story. He enthusiastically said, it was my mother’s call. 
He continued, she is upset. She’s feeling lonely at home as my sister has shifted to Bangalore for her summer internship for a month. I was wondering if you could go to India and spend some time with her, he said in a tone which was pleading yet authoritative. 

He then added, you must be feeling bored as you have nothing productive to do here. I anyway remain busy with my office and you know I can easily take care of myself, he said with pride. You must go and pay a visit to my native place, my mother will be really happy to see you and I’m sure she will get some rest, as you’ll be really helpful to her in household chores.

I heard their conversation but pretended to chat with someone over text messages. I pretended, as if I had not heard anything. I know whatever I did was ethically wrong, but I couldn’t move, I felt really bad for that lady. I felt miserable about Indian mentality. I felt helpless as a girl. I felt horrible about term marriage and its consequences. It’s never about education or generation it’s only about mentality. No matter where we go, what we do, things are not going to change till the time we don’t decide to change our mentality. 

Why do we always feel women are born to do housework and to deal with all the crap? 

We lecture people about equality, education and what not, but when it comes to our society and home, we all be the same. 

It was dark by then. I had to leave for home. I started walking. I wanted to turn back for one last time and look back at that lady, but I couldn’t. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t.

About the author

Shikha is a qualified IT Manager and an accidental author.  Her first book  ‘He Fixed the Match, She fixed Him’ will soon be adapted as a motion picture. She writes columns occasionally with DailyO (India Today) and TOI-Blog, Right Nailed and other forums. She’s also a relationship expert and a traveler at heart.

Main Characters of the book:

Kartik Brar, Sahana, Mr. Ajit, Mrs. Alka, Mrs. Gauri, Mr. Arminder, Vinny, Honey, Samar, Rahul, Garima,Kauveri etc.

My take on the book:

There are few writers whose writing skills never fail to awe you. One such writer for me is, Shikha Kumar. Her narration skills are so powerful that you are literally forced to visualise the characters of the book. The easy-going language used by the author is of course like a cheery on the cake.

This story has all the essential elements to make you believe in the power of true love. This story has all the essential elements to appreciate writer for the wonderful work she has done. Yet again, she has proved her brilliance through her work!

This story revolves around many emotions like parenthood, love, lust, frustration, hopes, ambitions, dreams, misunderstanding, longing for love etc. You’ll be laughing out loud at the funny moments shared by Kartik (Happy) with his childhood friends described in the story. You’ll be having moist eyes while reading Kartik’s dilemma between head and heart and Sahana’s true feelings about love and life will make you believe in the power of love.

There are few positive points about the book:

The title of the book is very apt and it perfectly suits the story. The cover of the book is brilliantly made, it perfectly depicts the story’s baseline.

The language used in the book by the author will be appreciated by the masses for some obvious reasons. I was sheding tears while reading the pain that was felt by Sahana and Kartik while they longed to be with each other but destiny was too harsh with them for 5 years. I could feel Sahana’s pain as a lover and an Indian daughter.

The characterization is done brilliantly. You’ll be instantly connected with the characters, they seem so real. It’s the magic of Shikha that no character in the story feels useless or forcibly crafted. Each character in the story has its own importance. Sahana and Vinny are my personal favorite. I literally hated Rahul’s mother for all the insensible talks she did with Sahana.

Talking about the negative points of the story,

I personally feel this story badly needed some twists and turns. Some more masala in this story could have made this book a perfect treat for readers. After a point, story becomes stereotype and it becomes too easy to assume the next move which can eventually bore readers.

It’s only because of the beautiful narration of emotions and story, I could complete reading this book in less than 2 days.

Conclusion:

The philosophical part in the story is my favourite, where life’s important lessons have been taught to us in the most simplest way. There’s no question about writer’s ability when it comes to dialogue delivery and narration, she’s simply the best in it. Not to forget, editors have done their work brilliantly, I could thoroughly enjoy the story because of minimum grammatical errors.

Book Review: Diabolical by Supriya Parulekar

Title: Diabolical

Author: Supriya Parulekar

Publisher: Gargi Publishers

ISBN: 9789384382094

Blurb of the book says,

Lost and alone, Sonya fought with the demons that haunted her, threatening to rip her apart! “They want me dead…” Sonya mumbled as fear took hold of her. Being a superstar in Bollywood provided no solace to the gorgeous Sonya Rana and there was no running away from the fear that she experienced every waking moment. Jay tried to soothe her frayed nerves with his love but she chose to shut herself from the world. All she wanted was to leave her dark past behind, somehow.

“Let me go… please,” Sonya pleaded to Tania, her step-sister who fiercely loved and protected her. Sonya knew the bitter truth. In the end, either one will survive; she or the demons raging within her, and if the demons won, it would spell an end for Sonya. When one’s soul takes a beating, all hope is lost and everything is over in a single heartbeat. The ‘Diabolical’ had manifested itself within the gorgeous Sonya, killing the hope of a chance at a beautiful life she could have had. Read this book to unravel the dark games our mind plays with us. Experience a tumultuous ride of emotions as Sonya’s past catches up with her sending her life spiraling down.

Review:

This book titled, Diabolical is a story of a superstar – Sonya Rana. A triumphant Bollywood celebrity hitting on the highest point of her profession.

What people perceive about you is not always the truth is very well explained here in the story. The same is applicable in Sonya’s life. For others Sonya has a perfect life, perfect family, perfect carrier, but deep inside her head, she had her own demons to fight with. Loneliness is one of the worst feelings. Agree? This story explains the same thing, even though being encircled by her relatives;  Sonya Rana feels all alone.  She’s having a sister cum best friend in her life as Tania. Who cares for her more than her life.  I simply loved the characterization of Tania. Sonia has a loving, caring and understanding partner too, but they say few things are not meant to be with you forever.

Here in the story many emotions are being portrayed by the author, Fear, selfless love, jealousy, abuse, negligence, Loneliness, etc. This story had many facets and author managed to wonderfully craft them all. In the story, Sonya is struggling to get rid of the worst rival, the devils inside her brains. Each and everyone who’ll pick up this book would say at least once; Yes, I have been there. Yes, I know how it feels.

I could easily connect with this story as a reader, because the language used by the author is uncomplicated and smooth, the vocabulary is not at all knotty and it was an overall pleasant read for me. The story had enough twists and turns to keep me obsessed for knowing more. This tale was successful in creating curiosity in the mind till the last page of the book.

There are some editorial mistakes, for which I will not blame the author. I want to appeal to all the publishers out here, please take care of editorial mistakes.

Overall, nice attempt. Author hence proves to be a versatile writer by penning down something like Diabolical.

If you consider my point of view before picking up a book, I would say, diabolical is a book which shouldn’t be missed. Go for it. It is different than others. A book that can help you to introspect, a book that can create a storm of thoughts in your head.

Publishers: Srishti Publishers

Blurb of the book says,

When the superstar diva of the past decade doesn’t want to play the hero’s mother on screen, she insists that she be reshaped into the most beautiful woman in the world…by any means.

This is just one of the many odd situations which plastic surgeon Dr. Dhruv faces in Mumbai. He has dealt with tyrannical bosses and finicky patients while undergoing his training, during which he has also won over a stunning doctor as his life partner. But satisfying the movie stars is a different ball game, because every girl wishes to have bee-stung lips, and every guy wants to flaunt a six-pack abdomen without working too hard. And all this while, he has to resist losing his balance over his ravishing female clients. Dr. Dhruv’s journey surpasses even a masala movie for humour, drama and action. In debunking many a myth about cosmetic surgeries, the book will enthrall those who can do Anything to Look Hot.

Characters of the book:

Dhruv, Nandini, Ravinder Khanna, Mururi, Dr. Jayraj, Dr. Palmer, Dr. Vidhur, Chirta, Shagun.

My review:

I am glad, I decided to read, anything to look Hot. When market is almost flooding with same kind of stories this kind of concept and book truly deserves to get appreciation. This book clears many misconceptions regarding Plastic surgery. This book also talks about actors and actresses and their tantrums surgeons has to face every now and then.

I was able to connect with the characters right from the beginning and liked them almost instantly. The flow of words, the pace of the story and the fusion of different emotions in the context was perfect for me. The Narration is just perfect and undoubtedly not belonging to a debutante author.

I totally loved the part where Dhruv goes mad after Nandini. Their part in the book is something that I enjoyed reading the most. Most importantly, this offers you various themes in one story like it had love and romance and it had thrilling elements to engross the readers. The sense of humor is just perfect and enough to crack a laughter riot.

Author has presented the story in a promising way. Every single line leaves the thread of emotion. The play of words assists you all the way down to conjure up an image of what’s going on and hence the novel becomes intriguing.

Positive Points:

Lovely book cover and title of the book: I liked the cover of the book. Title of the book is equally interesting. Any reader would like to pick up this book by looking at its cover and title.

Lucid Language: Language plays an important role while you decide to share your story with masses. Your language should be easy going and convincing too. Both these qualities were found in Jas Kohli’s narrating skills.

Gripping Story: I loved the story line. The flow of the story is truly appreciable. The pace of the story is well maintained.
I so much enjoyed reading Anything to look hot that, I couldn’t keep down the book till I completed reading it. Yes, I mean it I completed this book in one go. I repeat, writing style is nice and the freshness of the plot makes it a delightful read.

Negative Points:

The exaggeration of the details that were related to Plastic Surgery were turning my mood down as a reader.

Conclusion:

I was glad that there were not too many editing glitches and the narration moved smoothly. The writing style of the author is fine and the book is a page turner. It will keep you gripped till the end. A light,  enjoyable, breezy read. It was definitely a good and deserved break for me from all the dark, sinister novels that I was feasting on. On the whole this book is a decent read and can be a good accompaniment for a lazy afternoon.
