Story of a girl Meera, who is unwittingly drawn into a conflict from where she finds it difficult to emerge unscathed. It’s her journey from being a simple, medical graduate belonging to a middle class family to the uncharted territories of corruption and caste-based politics. Her path is crossed by two men, both compelling yet completely contrasting characters, who are going to change her life forever. If it is Aman Sharma who can challenge her ideals, defy her resolves and make her the person she finally becomes, it is Abhay Bharti’s sublime love which enables her to go through the vicissitudes of life. It’s also the story of her loss as well as triumph against her own demons to find her true self.
(I was given a copy in exchange of a honest review)
The chapers were too long and I didn’t like it that much.
The writing was not the best. Sometimes it seemed like the scenes had no connection between them. And there are lots of POVs from different characters and someimes that was confusing, just reading in other POV not knowing from whom before you figure out. The POVs change easy and fast and sometimes its not like a whole part from a POV and just sentences.
I liked the story. I like how this shows you the corruption that there is in he system, how is unfair and can change many lives. It also shows the reality of India, how hard is for some people to get what they want.
I liked that the story starts and ends in the present but in the middle you are in the past. Then you forget you are reading the past and just keep reading.
When the story starts, you are kind of reading the end, and I really liked that.
The end was not totally complete, I mean, there are lots of things inconlusive but if I really think of them, at the same time they had an answer.
The romance was rushed, it was like the first time talking and the ‘I love you’ was already said. They didn’t know each other and started a relationship. I didn’t like this. However they didn’t meet right after the ‘I love you’ and Meera made Aman work for that meeting, and that was good.
And someting happens that I didn’t feel connected to the story but was the moment that started the story and gave a way to end the book like it did.
I liked the end, it was just what the characters and story needed.
Meera: I liked her. She didn’t doubt when she had to help her family or anyone. She faces what life gives her. Sometimes she was frustrating because she accepted everything the way it was,not changing anything. But at the end she fought some events. I liked how she ended up, and how she realised some things that weren’t right for her.
Aman: I never liked him completely. He had some good things but then there were others that I never liked.
Abhay: I liked him, always. I didn’t like to see him after Meera when she didn’t noice him. He was so sweet and trustworthy.
Meera has some really good friends and her father who will support her in everything and that is awesome.
“She looked around and wonderes if this is what they meant when when they say life is like a colour changing chameleon,scary one moment and lovable the next.”
“That’s the magic of love it makes even the sanest minds insane as you begin to see derams with open eyes.”
“There is never any destination, it’s always the journey and how well we make our journey is all that matters”.
“It’s very hard to rise in life, very easy to fall, so be aware of every step you chose to take in life. You should always aim high and try to excel in whichever are you choose to specialize in.”
About The Author:
My debut novel, Seeking Redemption, is the first ever fiction title in India which speaks against caste based reservation system. The female protagonist of the novel suffers repeatedly in her professional career because of the reverse discrimination.
The book tries to give a message that excellence can never be bargained for. The novel deals with the health system of India and highlights that when we replace talent with reservation, we play with the lives of the people, a right that inherently is not bestowed upon us.
The book speaks for an individual, be it from any class, caste or section of the society because an individual is the smallest minority of any society and their rights need to be protected first.
The character of Aman Sharma depicts the frustration and agony of the young generation who are not getting what they are entitled to.He has to face the wrath of the system because he opposed the policy of reservation.
It is time that our system should realize that we have to redeem ourselves from the obsolete and decadent system of caste based reservation.
