Promises are difficult to keep...
10 September 2018
My favourite line in this book is "when she was happy she was immensely happy when she was sad she was immensely sad"...so true for my own self. The character of Shambhavi is so strong and yet to fragile. The importance of loving selflessly and your own self respect is so well portrayed by Nikita the writer. The story is not something different but the way the characters are described the way why one does one thing is what makes the story interesting. The turn of events are surprising and as you read you can actually feel what both Shambhavi and Arjun go through. One of the many beautiful lines in the book is "life doesn't give you many options...one is to trust to try despite ones reservations. The other is to never know what could have been ". This is so true. If you decide to take that plunge you need to be ready for the consequences also that come with it. Life is nothing but an unexpected turn of events changing you as a person just like how Shambhavi grew and her paintings could depict the same. The bonding between Shambhavi and her dad and her friend Mili teaches a lot about conduct of relationships...definitely deserves one read by someone looking for a romantic emotional read.
