Book:The infinite equinox!
Author: Bhavya Kaushik
Writing Style: 3.9/5
Preview: The title of the book is an amazing epitome of mild tautology. Fascinating, intriguing and wrapping cover that loosely revolves around the theme of the book. Commendably there was no giveaway of the plot from the cover.
As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.
The tale is wrapped around the protagonist Tamanna, a painful reiteration of days spent on streets of India begging, a victim of a racket. Besides being a heart-wrenching tale of a turmoil of a girl, this tale is a compelling insight of how one can battle her own destiny to overcome miseries of life.
Maintaining a tenacious tone and pace in the tale, the Author has undoubtedly been able to connect life of Tamanna to the readers. It would be an understatement if I say, I connected to Tamanna, perhaps I was in her. I lived figment life of Tamanna through the articulate words of the Author.
There were times, reading this, when I literally couldn’t flicker, and felt like the bottom had dropped out of my stomach. But this story is beautiful, and enlightening and hopeful even through all the gritty, heart-wrenching, almost physically painful emotional rawness of it.
The Authors choice of subject, the language and the intention to convey is so well delivered that one actually, sees that the book is not just another tale of a girl. It is indeed a memoir of how we interpret lives. As very correctly put by the Author, we live a life of infinite moments, shade of emotions and a knit of memories. Every moment is an ingredient to a bizarre recipe called life.
Tamanna, stands to be just another girl, who gets her own share of pain and distress. This journey of her, is no dreamy walk. It is for real and she is just like you and me gearing up to what destiny had for her and tumbled upon what fate beheld.
The tale gradually unfurls a beautiful tint of blooming love. Clipped by destiny Vikram and Tamanna are moulded together. The test of time when fate tried to pull them apart. A story of how even in the most crazy crisis of life, love, friendship and trust hold hands till eternity.
Yes this tale, unearths the gory truth of the begging racket. If you have lived in India you have indefinitely seen victims of this racket. Tamanna is nothing but a strong, bold survivor of this evil world. She has questions, she has doubts, she has worries and she has her own little dream. This book unfurls her journey to explore every question, that you , me and Tamanna will definitely come across while reading.
Although the tale revolves around Tamanna, the book in no way side-lines any other character. Every character in this tale has a reason to stay. Has an answer to give. Very artistically knitted characters placed at the absolute juncture of read.
What I loved?
I am not sure, if such was an intent of the tale, but I learnt a very beautiful fact of life. Our fate is what is meant to be, but destiny is what one thinks it ought to be. The book isn’t full of jazz and surreal fiction but is an insight of what every other face we come across is living.
Now in Seattle, then in India on the streets lived Tamanna. The tale is a bounce-back to past and then a flip to present. This book has very essentially maintained a pace that will definitely keep you hooked to the edge. “Appreciably, the Author has a keen eye for creating an environment before setting in the story. Which is a very rare find.”
What could have been better?
I think the blurb of the book was quite a give away. There could have been a little less of tale in the blurb to pump up the inquisitiveness.
All in All: The USP of the books is the intensity of emotions it holds and the innocence that the tale unfurls. This book is a friendly read for all age groups.
I would recommend this one to those who have seen the good after worse and those who are yet to see the good.
Overall rating: 4/5
