37+ Grace Marks
37+ Grace Marks by Vishal Anand is another teenage romantic fiction. It is a light read and can attract young readers who love reading college romance. Well, this is not practically a romance novel as the female protagonist Nimisha keep rejecting the proposal of Viraj and she is also not an important character of the story. This novel revolves around the college life of Viraj and his friends.
Viraj is just an another engineering student who is not so good in studies. He is just passing time in college when this girl Nimisha enters the story and Viraj falls in love with him. They became good friends but when he expressed his love for her she rejects him, not once but twice. Suddenly she disappears from the story and Viraj gets involved with other things like his projects, friends, and fests. Now to make readers remember Nimisha’s character her name is mentioned here and there. At the end of the story, she met with an accident and Viraj saved her and after some time she asks him to meet her. Picture end, the end. This book has nothing more to offer.
The language was simple but the narration was quite boring in some chapters. It was as if the author was trying to stretch the story. But in some places, the story was rushed. The story could have been written in a better way. The title of the story is well chosen according to the story and the cover having a picture of three guys and a girl reading books also matches the theme of the novel.
This book is a one time read and suitable for those who are looking for a light college life story.
Book review of – Ek Musafir esa bhi
Ek Musafir esa bhi is a biography of Balasaheb Thackeray by Dr. Reena Sinha ‘Anamika’. This book is all about his works, achievements, life – events and how he devoted all of his life in the formation and Shiv Sena. He was a great politician who formed the Shiv Sena, a Hindu right-wing party in Maharashtra and worked really hard for it. This book describes his whole life as a writer and a politician.
Author has tried to narrate the whole chain of events which has affected and shaped the life of Balasaheb Thakrey.
Balasaheb Thakrey was a man with good potential and power. After several years of the division of India and Pakistan he was worried about the condition of Hindu religion people and for that, he formed the political party, Shiv Sena. He has to face many problems in his journey, he was even held responsible for the riots against Muslim but he never felt disappointed. He continued working harder until they won elections. Even after the death of his wife and his elder son. He continued working for the society.
Author has narrated his whole life in a very beautiful manner. Many people can take inspiration from the life of Balasaheb. Author has done a commendable job while writing this novel. She has written some poems in Hindi too which were really appreciable.
The cover of the book was appropriate. The one thing which I don’t like was the use of a language other than Hindi. I think it was marathi and I don’t know that language so it was really difficult for me to skip those paragraphs.
This book is really good for those Hindi readers who are looking for an inspiring story.
The Amigos is a story of friendship, bonding, revolution, love, patriotism. It will definitely remind you the fun you had with your friends in the college. Those small fights which we were part of being portrayed in a very lively manner in this book. This book will transport you to the time of your college days when you shared a strong bond of friendship with your friends.
Rahul, Ritesh, and Rehan are the main characters of the story along with Jackal and Neha. Ritesh being in army got injured during one of his operations and Rehan and Rahul get there as soon as possible to meet their dear friend. Now the story goes behind 6 years when they were in college.
They were enjoying their college life when they come to know about the scam running in the college and soon they found themselves behind bars. Rahul’s father being a rich businessman pay their bail and they were out in no time. To free their college from such practices they make a plan and get succeeded in it. After that story follows and some incidents happen in their life which left them wondering that what they are doing with their life is what they really like?
Amigos is a good contemporary fiction which provides a lot to its readers. It is not that regular tale of college going students so you can’t get bored while reading it. It has twists and turns which were surprising while some of them were predictable.
Least typesetting errors which can be passed. The cover has a picture of three boys riding a bicycle which describes that the story is about three boys and their dreams. It is colors of red and yellow hue which looks good and attractive.
It is a good read for everyone. So start reading and get lost in your memories.
