It's a tale of vulnerability and daring in one go and loss. It is said loss is felt in the presence of love.
The protoganist struggles to bear this loss and forgets that it is the presence of love that makes it
So difficult for her. To mourn alone is a difficult thing and this makes her so vulnerable. A simple tale woven beautifully with braids of love, life and loss.
All the very best to Vinita Bakshi who has touched a chord by dishing out life on a platter. Looking forward to the sequel.
Yes, Mansa the protagonist had every thing. Or did she? What made her not appreciate the glass being half full rather than half empty? Vinita conveys very professionally but not without the necessary enigma how childhood traumas leave an indelible scar in majority of us.
The book outlines the hollowness of most relationships blooming in the maze of electronic highways.It cautions one about the need to ppssess a firm head on ones shoulders especially when cyber alliances turn sour.
The book is a journey which intensifies the need in all of us to reach out to our finest self and bid adieu to the demons which wreck at our Id and psyche. Vinita , my whole family adored your book and now my husband looks at me with woebegone eyes after reading and loving it.
Very succintly but sweetly I declare the book to be a must read.
For all my friends, Grab yourself a tall glass of your drink and curl up with " 31 Miles" by Vinita Bakshi. This sure would keep you engaged for a while!!!
31 Miles is a story with elementary theme brewed into an extravagant story by the author. Simple writing style and vocabulary makes it more alluring. The relationship phase between Rajan and Mansa when the love flower blooms between them are described in a beautiful manner. However, despite so many things in the story, the author succeeded in maintaining the balance between the characters and the story. This is commendable.
At no point, it felt as if the story is losing its charm or is getting mundane. The book is surely a page turner and it will be no big deal if the book makes it to bestseller charts. Let me share some lines that took my heart away-
Page 164- ” WHAT IS LOVE? Why are some people unable to express it, while others express it so loosely, devoid of any meaning? Why is love as hurtful as it is pleasurable? Why do people who love each other quarrel so much? why does it lead to a state of either zero expectation or expectations of the highest order? Why is love the most abused, overused, misused and confused emotion of all times?
