Those songs you’ve grown up with.. those melodies that reminds you of your childhood days. When those memories are served to you in a book, that’s flawlessly reserved only for appreciation. You’re up for a beautiful journey.
As every journey is incomplete without music, so is this book.
The story of Rajvir and his uneventful life, and how a letter he finds in a book while visiting a bookstore changes everything. From a single letter, to a series of them. From just reading these letters, to writing replies to them and eventually getting attached to the person who’s writing them.
The author’s take on decorating the conversations between Rajvir and the mysterious writer can’t get any better. How Rajvir’s monotonous life gets sparks of self-discovery, how he’s creating his own chords of happiness in his life.
The concept is experimental, unique and full of suprises. But the research, dedication that’s behind the concept gets it appreciated from all literary dimensions.
Now coming to the real review, the plot begins when Rajvir sees a letter that he picks from the bookstore. The anonymous letter is intended to make the person who gets the book smile. Further he comes across more letters in the bookstore, and finally manager to get the email ID and further a engage in chats with the sender, who is a female- the name is revealed later- Taashvi. They get connected and realizes that both are 90's kids and could relate to each other's likes and dislikes. Further the book is about the discussion of the songs, movies and the celebrity crushes. The book is an entertaining encyclopedia about the 90's music. After a point the discussion gets monotonous and makes it difficult for even a 90's kid to keep up with the enthusiasm.
More space for the background of the protagonists could have balanced the book better. Nonetheless the little glimpse into the family of Taashvi is lively and a mood-changer.
I never paid attention to lyrics ever. For me music is like time-pass while I am driving or something to keep it in background. After reading this book, I think I will now pay more attention to song lyrics and even not to keep music as background activity but consciously listen to music. For anyone like me who is not so much into music, I would say, don’t skip the music part fast. There are couple of songs where author has described the emotion or expression of a song very beautifully. And it is thru how the characters think of a song connects them. Brilliantly written. Author has even made a playlist of song incase if people want to listen to them. If there are any songs especially the 5 chosen songs by author, do stop reading and watch the song video and pay attention to lyrics and then read the book. Book indeed is full of simplicity and full of food for thought (Directly and Indirectly).
After a long time, I read a book that’s so beautiful in approach.
