The whole plot revolves around a mother of one Ramona after her husband one day disappeared out of the blue. He leaves her a note which to her expectation did not justify his runaway or disappearance completely. Her world turned upside down. Emotionally confuse, she try to move on but the events of past life that directly relates to her husband keeps coming back to her as a stream of thoughts. Soon, and with the help of her family, she begins to move on but stranger then completely changes the course of her life.
There is a real sense of mysteriousness in the storyline from page one. It is exciting and one of the major factors that hooks a reader. The book clearly tries to reflect the point of view of a woman who has to face the wrath society in terms of questions and accusations as well as her own emotions and fighting the feeling of abandonment. This book is a journey of a woman that deciphers her past in front of us, and as she makes an effort to come out of the shell she has been living in all these years.
The writing style is flawless. The narrative voice is steady, smooth and drives the plot forward. The characterisation is up to the mark. A reader does have a chance to seek beneath the skin of other characters as well. Overall, I think this book is for anyone who is interested in reading a great example of contemporary Indian Fiction.
5 out of 5!
A psychological read of sorts told in a simple, lucid and crisp language, the book is relatable and offers food for thought. We often tend to ignore our blessing and instead dwell on our woes without realizing that it is the blessings that drive us on, make life beautiful and fill it with sunshine.
A straightforward story, Ramona is also a grim reminder of the fact that often couples take their partner for granted only to drift apart. It is a reminder that even the ‘madly in love’ couple do fall out once they experience the grind of everyday life, unless they make it a point to find quality time for the other. Relationships don’t last merely on ‘love.’ To make them last a lifetime, one need to constantly work on them, feed and water them, tend to them with care and ensure that they remain fresh and charming. Neglect them, and they begin to wilt and slowly fade away into oblivion.
That's the beauty of the author characterizing the story so well that instead of asking author you start probing or questioning the characters of the story. At that moment you forget that these characters are fictional. But the moment you find a connection between the characters of a story and people in real life, that gap starts shrinking. And at times it gradually vanishes. That's how you find yourself as a reader standing face to face with those characters and interacting or arguing with them. This book is just 101 pages. But it relates well to the modern day life. In fact, both the books, Balraj and Ramona, are two parallel sequences happening simultaneously in the life of the two at two separate locations. The story, in fact, begins after Inder, her husband leaves the house.
Inder and Ramona are, in fact, quite successful in their respective careers. But all of a sudden Inder starts a new journey of life, leaving Ramona at home. While it shocks Ramona she initially believes that Inder will come back within a few days. Shaurya, their only son who works in an MNC in Bangaluru and Ameeta, Inder's sister living in Pune are the only two persons in the family whom Ramona shares this incident. The author questions the society through this book why a woman has to prove herself in every walk of her life as a wife, sister, mother, and daughter. Why is it the man who decides benchmarks for a woman to qualify for these roles? When Inder leaves Ramona, he mentions clearly in the letter he would come back for sure some day in the life.
But if Ramona finds someone else in her life during that period, he wouldn't mind. Then why Shourya tries to show Ramona the right path? And by the way who decides this right path? Moreover, why a man always decides a right path for a woman.
Ramona, is somehow much more beautifully described. He weaknesses, her strengths everythings are described so beautifully that you wont be able to keep the book down until you've finished it
