First Review : Maniparna
Second Review : Sahil rated it 3 of 5 stars – Another great read! The book narrates 40 (very real) stories about different situations faced by people from different walks of life. Enjoyed reading the book – it is a very good quick read!
The stories are short and precise. The characters are relatable. This book has something for everyone. Its a wonderful attempt to bring awareness to issues like female foeticide, child marriage, AIDS, and even concepts of live-in relationship and house husbands in India.
I am sure it will make the readers pause and ponder. In no way have I ever felt that the reader is being preached- such is the impeccable writing style. Kudos!
