Book Review – From Where I see by Ajay Yadav

Title – From where I see

Author – Ajay Yadav

Publisher – Lifi Publications

Genre: Fiction

Blurb of the book:

Ajay meets his childhood friend Shruti on a social network site. He finds her to be struggling with intrapersonal, interpersonal, inter-social and inter-religious conflicts. Eventually the conflicts kill her. Even if the police solve the case, will it prevent hundreds of Shrutis from getting killed?
How long will we think of ‘who’ killed as more important than ‘what’ killed a person? Till we don’t address this issue and work on it, many Shrutis will keep on getting killed. We need to cure the disease, not just the symptoms.

This book is an effort by the author to find the root cause and probable remedies of conflicts, and tries to explore hundreds of pertinent questions like “Why does it become so easy to get volunteers to blow up themselves and others for the sake of religion? Does religion divide or unite? What precipitates extramarital affairs? Is the immature and wrong interpretation of female emancipation the reason for a 13 fold rise in divorce rates in the last 5 years?

It’s not only a book, it’s the path to revolution, a journey towards an utopian world. Accepting the truth is the toughest job in the world. If you feel that you are open minded, have the courage to accept the truth and a desire to change the world. Be a part of the change and take the first step to build a road to the ideal world.

My Review:

Firstly, thanks to the team Author’s paradise for sending me a copy of the book just because of you guys I got a chance to read this marvelous piece of literature.

Interesting blurb, catchy Title and brilliant cover design will surely create an urge in you to read this book. As a reader, when I went through the blurb, I couldn’t resist hence, I started reading this book at the very moment.

There are many books that you read, there are many writers who come and go, and then there are few writers like Dr. Ajay Yadav and few stories like “From Where I see” which are sure and create an impact in people’s mind.

Positive Points:

Story line: As a vicarious reader, I believe a story should be such where a reader gets to know something & gets to learn something.  Story line of “From Where I see” surely is one such kind of story. Stories like this can make you think about your life’s lessons and mantras.

Well researched book: In today’s scenario, where writing a book has just become a hobby or a short cut to fame, books like “From where I See” gives you a hope that Indian Literature has got talent and people like Dr. Ajay Yadav will be doing wonders in future. Research done and executed on social, national, cultural issues is truly appreciable.

Characterization: Characters are the important aspect when you read the story, and I must say, characters were well developed and well narrated, it helps you to get linked with the story easily.

Content of the book: Today where market is flooding with nothing else than love and romance, this kind of book is no less than a treasure to read, every now and then something  new, something great was kept in the story line to keep the reader hooked. Brilliant work!

Negative Points:

1) Initial chapters: Story starts with police inquiring about Shruti’s death from Ajay. The first chapter is about the series of questions and answers between the inspector and Ajay. I personally feel, author should make the mood of a reader before keeping in such serious things in picture,I feel, this chapter creates a fuss in a reader’s mind.

2) Length of the book: This story is written in 400 pages. A non reader would think thrice before picking up the book from the store.


This book can be tagged as an tremendous effort by the author to show the glimpse of some important aspects of our life. This book tries to reveal many aspects at a time. The first impression which I got was, a murder Mystery but gradually author took off wonderfully and didn’t let me down. From where I see is like, More you dive in, more you get to understand and learn from it. This book will teach you, Be the change to you seek in others”, accepting a fact is indeed the tough task. If you have the courage to deal and accept the truth, be a part of this change and take some steps to make this world a better place to live in. 

If you personally wish to read something great. If you wish to read something uncommon, I recommend this book to you. Not everyday, you get a chance to read something like ” From where I see”

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
