Beautiful style, keeps one interested until the end leaving the reader wanting for more. Excellent use of lines from others like Ghalib, but she has plenty of her own, one being- "Our failures damage the temple of our soul by watering the seeds of self-doubt that when germinate around its walls, shake its whole foundation"
Look forward to more stories..
Meera Sachdev, a representation of disturbed human life, comes back to India after getting divorced. ‘Divorce’, a taboo in Indian context and still remains, dooms her and her life. Unlike customary norms, her family and friends stand by her side and are all ears to her emotional turmoil. Do not take her as a weak lonely separated woman, she is modern woman who might be exhausted temporarily but is not a subject of pity at any given chance. This book is an account of her seven conversations wherein she explores herself, world around her and world beyond her limits, which is populated with her family, friends, teacher and the Lord – Krsna, himself.
The book is fully loaded with words of wisdom and trust me, it is really hard to pin-point only selected paragraphs. She introduces you to ‘Faith’ in an interesting manner and changes the norms of writing about spirituality. The book cover is soothing enough to highlight the importance of setting a connection with the almighty. It directs towards the divine feeling of expanding our limits and reaching out to accomplish new horizons.
A unique writing style with good use of Hindu mythological and Ghalib's Urdu anecdotes with effortless ease. Beautifully written .. an absolute page turner.
We think we aim for the right goals but we don’t realize the inaccuracies of our maps.
Take for instance the institution of marriage. It is a decision to live together for a man and a woman guarded by legal commitments.
Kahlil Gibran on marriage says:
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Perhaps he means that a marriage is a collective evolution of souls that are not bonded to one another.
Changelessness or stasis is a death knell for a marriage.
The protagonist of our book here has her foundations of self-belief momentarily shaken by a collapsed marriage. Like the flower of Morning Glory, the night that ensues cause her life’s happiness to fade away.
The journey inwards, Krsna, human warmth and falling in love again make the life inside her unravel into the full bloom of a bright new morning with full glory.
The reader travels with Meera on this journey of nuanced emotions and it is hard for the reader not to feel what Meera feels.
The essential story and the manner in which it is expressed seamlessly takes the reader to the meaning of the book. It is this oneness with Meera and how the author has united the reading experience with the emotions underlying the story which makes this an exquisitely beautifully read.
