Product Description

About the Author

Varsha thinks of herself as a borderline obsessive-compulsive dreamer who thinks deep but writes light. A true ‘feel good’ junkie seeking quick fixes, she loves a good laugh, good movie and a good book in the order. A voracious reader of murder and grotesque mysteries, Varsha sat down to pen a book on serial killers but finding it impossible to maim or kill, even on paper, she penned a romantic story instead. Thus, she found her true calling. Currently, Varsha is living with her husband and daughter in USA.

Disclaimer: I received a paperback from the author via The Book Club in return for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for the same.

The story is set in Kanpur and begins with Nandini working as head of design in a private firm along with her BFF Sneha. Both are hardworking women. While Sneha is married with a little son, Nandini is unmarried and lives with her parents.

Into the scene enters Aditya, who takes over the company. He makes a few changes keeping back all the staff. At this point, the reader gets to know that Aditya and Nandini go back a long way and something’s irritated the hell out of Aditya. He’s out to take revenge, big time.

Spoiler warning from here on... read at your own risk.

In the beginning, I didn’t much like Aditya as I felt he was going overboard mistreating Nandini. As the story unfolds, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the hero. He’s oh-so-perfect. I also enjoyed the way the relationship between the protagonists developed in the past. This is shown in flashbacks and well dealt with.

The dialogues are racy and interesting. All the side characters, Aditya’s parents, his brother, sister-in-law, Nandini’s parents, her BFF and a host of others working in the office – all have perfect roles and fit in well with the story. The author has used the right kind of masala in creating the tension between characters and the story flows smoothly from beginning till end.

One thing that I felt disappointed was the way the split between the protagonists has been explained away towards the end. I wish, I so wish, the author had shown the actual flashback scene when they parted company. I had been waiting with bated breath for that scene and was extremely disappointed when it didn’t happen.

Varsha Dixit's Only Wheat not White and the “aura” of her being 3 times Bestseller writer of Rupa Publications raised my expectations a lot for Right Fit Wrong Shoes. Before I go further let me point out clearly a few oddities [or should I say the norm nowadays] this novel has-

The Bollywood setting where you can almost see a Raj and Simran dancing around the trees. Her usage of dialogues “Abe palat” added to the ambiance. If you read the blurb of the story, words like “BFF” and “millennium bhehenji” stare at your face. So please, first read the blurb before picking up this for the author has not hidden the fact that this is how her style or tone will be in this particular novel. A total contrast to Only Wheat Not White, if I may add.
The story line is nothing new yet when told every time you have that lump in your throat and think back to those days when you met your Mr. Right. That cute college type romance which every “mother of a daughter hate kind” yet have one tucked in their secret cupboard.

It had all the ingredients of a shadowy villain, a sexy hero, a fiery damsel that will make those butterflies flutter in your stomach. So when Nandini walks up to Aditya and tells him “it’s over”, the romance quotient just heightens up.

Desi Style Verbal Mannerisms
When in Rome be a Roman. Ms. Dixit took this cliché very seriously. Hindi words have been sprinkled liberally all over the story. I almost felt the author was having a damn good time using them. A hint of laughter, a touch of passion and loads of oomph factors. But only for those who are well versed with Hindi. I don't grudge Ms. Dixit her liberal use of the colloquial language for in my everyday life I too think in “Hinglish”.

I am curious.

The editing is way too laxed. Punctuation marks are erratically thrown around, often ending up changing the meaning of sentences. As if that wasn't enough, the story line is so jumpy, with POV pronouns adding to the already created confusion, that finishing this book needs some effort.
The book is a quick read, with the author not choosing to dwell on unnecessary stuff but sometimes it became so quick that I felt I was reading the outline for a scene rather than the scene itself. The end lacks the treatment it deserves and is wrapped too quickly, another put-downer.
The author's naivete comes through. But you know that she is serious about her craft when you read her second book, which I think is her saving grace from more of my ranting.
The book is a decent effort, and as a writer myself, I appreciate it. However, there was too much that wasn't paid attention to.
If you've read this one and are as disappointed as I , pick up Only Wheat Not White and your spirits shall be lifted. If you haven't, no harm done if you decide to skip it.

‘Right Fit Wrong Shoe’ is a mix of typical 80’s M&B’s and Bollywood masala movies with beautiful, smart protagonists. Which is perfectly fine, since the blurb indicates the same and the cover I must say complements the blurb.

The story opens with lovely Nandini receiving the news of the takeover of her company by handsome Aditya, with whom she shares a history. She dreads meeting him. Man on a mission, Aditya makes her life miserable the moment he arrives in the city. Its cute to see him adversely affected by her presence and even jealous of other men paying attention to her.

The story oscillates between present times and flashbacks, telling us about the falling in love, the repercussions of the misunderstanding between the two and finally the culprit twist.

While Nandini’s character is perfect, handsome Aditya, at 30+ comes across a little childish and not in control. He is shown to be angry with her to the point of throwing things and bashing up people. Ideal families, a bosom friend, an aunty-type secretary and an alleged rapist complete the cast.

Humor is a very individualistic taste. The story did make me laugh at places with the Bollywood dialogues and abbreviations. But it seemed that the author had tried too hard to inject humor in each sentence, which seemed a little contrived. Too many (analogies, explanations in brackets) worked like speed-bumps for immersion.

My peeve with the book is the language errors and punctuation, the fault mainly lies with the editing. I felt I was drowning in the exclamation marks, semi-colons and question marks. With so many punctuations it seemed all the characters are hopping in excitement around me. It ended in tiring me out. I think the editors should have moderated and proofread better.
