Spider and thunderbolt stand very uniquely. Spider could be a controversial character, but her acts are fully justified. The beauty of the book is the way it ends. Consummation and finale are the most beautiful pieces. Many chapters such as pain or pleasure, mid-path, weaknesses are ultimate strengths, hope, broken wings, four choices etc. are like standalone chapters though integral in the story, and would definitely inspire the young guys who are busy on the corporate ladder.
There are irksome page set up errors (cramping of lines) at a few places. Paper and cover quality could have been better; lighter and more flexible.
Blinks in Blackout, An engaging Whirlwind journey with Vikram Purohit starts from the first line of this book. A journey we can relate effortlessly.
Dr. Hari Parameswar in his previous book The pillar Invisible had handled what he calls ‘Corporate mysticism” with organizational perspective whereas Blinks in Blackout has an individual narrative.
Pain is the most influential element arguably in the entire story and still without pessimism or negative overtones. The pain of being human is inherent in every individual and the reader starts appreciating the infinite capacity for pain we possess. Physical and emotional ordeal of Vikram Purohit detailed in the story makes you forget you are reading a friction.
We might have come across many assertive, aggressive and successful people who are really scared and insecure inside (I have come across). They are scared of their success itself sometimes. I liked the way the author handled this aspect in Blinks in Blackout
Saroj, BalaPriya, Nivedita, Aditi, Sakshi the women in Vikram Purohit’ s life are all characterized with dignity and each one have their own distinctive personalities. Aditi’s shade of grey and the spider mentality made the read drift from the flow. I now know an interesting new type of Feminism.
The surprise element towards the last chapter is a perfect indication to the potential human mind has in manifesting life.
Vikram Purohit had felt the need to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live.
Blinks in Blackout by Dr. Hari Parameswar will not disappoint.
There are three (3) chapters which I consider truly enlightening. One of them is ‘Pain or Pleasure: What is Perpetual?’ What I liked in this chapter is how the author devotedly narrated, in common man’s logic, in a very detailed manner, the root cause of pain and pleasure. It is in this chapter that I got to learn that these two are mutually exclusive; one can exist only when the other is absent.
The second impressive one is “Weaknesses are my ultimate strengths”. This chapter, I can say without doubt that it is my most favorite in the entire book, for the simple being that it is the reality, though we are ignorant about it, and that is what we live our life with. I liked how the grumbling of Vikram that “Anger and impatience have been my biggest weaknesses: the two evils within me, with whom I have been compelled to live” was proven wrong and later confirmed by himself that they were actually his biggest assets.
Lastly, my third favorite chapter is: “Four Choices in Life”. Vikram had never thought that his colleague whom he supported most was undergoing a terminal illness, and that no words were enough for him to alleviate the pain that he was undergoing, not any words of encouragement. Vikram never knew that he had contributed something so great in Millind’s life just through one of his spontaneous comments, it was beyond his imagination. Milind certainly would hound the readers for many days.
To know how the author choose the title, ‘Blinks in Blackout’, one need to read the book fully; there is a big surprise in the end. Hopefully the delight that I felt upon reading this book could be the same that anyone who would chance to read the book also would derive: it’s an eye opener; our inner eye.
Vikram's troublesome past is depicted as bit of memories which switch between his conscious and unconscious states. His troublesome childhood, first love, unsuccessful marriage, wonderful career; everything flashes through her cerebral layers.
The book is a club if genres - It can be counted as a pshychological thriller, spiritual fiction or a literary fiction. We can see author's foray into psychology, spirituality, literature, spirituality, suspense, familial relations, love and so on and so forth.
There are a lot of observations, though not as per theory standards, that touch a chord in the reader. It would not be more if I say again and again that the language of the author is exemplary. Nevertheless, the climax killed the fun. It was quite expected and predictably cliched.
