Cover- The cover of the book has four women posinf in different ways alogn with different expressions. It gives us an idea that the book highlights about women.
Title- The title is crystal clear and successfully delineates the motive of the book. The whole set of stories revolve around this.
Stories at a glance:
Brothel to Assembly– This story has all sort of emotions that are required in a perfect story like action, drama, thrill, struggle and many more. The protagonist is Pooja who belongs to a low class family and suddenly one day she is dragged in flesh trade which changes her life forever and how she overcame her miseries is the rest of the story. This story teaches us that no matter what happens, strong determination and will to achieve something will surely make the things happen.
Love, Corporate and Custody– This story revolves around Geshna, an amibitious and intelligent teenager who falls for Nihal, an equally intelligent guy. It is believed that often love comes with loads of struggles and sacrifices. This story also had sacrifices but on Geshna’s plate. She did every possible thing to keep her love and remained loyal throughout, little she did she know the secrets of her Nihal. This story has romance, betrayal, dreams. The way Geshna sacrifices her dreams surely makes you respect her.
Madam Bureaucrat– This tale has a prime focus on Sharawani who belongs to a low caste family and desires to clear IAS Exam. In this course, she comes across a guy whom she admires a lot and considers him as her confidante, little did she know his attentions. This story is about her strong will to achieve her dreams. It teaches us, no matter what all situations come up, we should not lose hopes at any point. It really inspires you.
Sin-This saga revolves around Harsha who gets married to Snehil but is in love with Anish. This story is about the true love of a husband and unfaithfulness of a wife who becomes a victim and ends up in an illicit relationship. I feel this story has Snehil as the main hero who proves out to be an ideal who looks after his wife. I feel a husband should be like Snehil but a wife should never be like Harsha.
That Rave Party Night– This story is about Avni, who is torn between her childhood friend Soumya and her boyfriend, Jeevak. This is tale of romance, betrayal, lifestyle. Life takes a drastic turn when Avni finds out that her friend, Soumya has told her something true and it is hard for her to believe this naked truth. The story has a revenge motive as its second part. Sometimes one should not blindly trust our partner. Even if you are in love, you should be alert always.
These five stories are so powerful and has a long lasting impact on the minds of the readers. I could never imagine that five stories could be life changing as well could end up in 211 pages.
Style- The style of writing is simple, clear and lucid. The themes of the stories have vigour in it. The way the author has used point of views is superlicious. Furthermore, these are not short stories, structurally speaking, they are novellas that are beautifully delineated. The characters are portrayed artistically.
The first instance, “brothel to assembly” teaches us not to give up at any moment. Pooja gives us the idea of what determination is. The character as well as the plot was motivating and inspiring.
This was an example I cited. There are four more stories which will leave you with a beautiful moral. A moral which will get implanted into your minds. A novel that you will respect, a story that you will love and enjoy.
THE FIVE SEGMENTAL PLOT
THE INSPIRATION BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE STORY.
THE LUCID LANGUAGE.
The plot for the story That Rave Party Night could have been made better with more references and circumstances. Otherwise it was brilliant.
THE FAVOURITE REFERENCE-
The characterization of Shrawani. I loved her reference and the impact in the story.
THE FAVOURITE QUOTE-
Jeevak, you might be released sooner or later but you deserve whatever you have gone through and it’s enough to make me happy.
