The Bestseller She Wrote
It was a dream come true to receive an author signed book, ‘The Bestseller She Wrote’ by Ravi Subramanian, courtesy by Blogadda for the book review. Thank you Blogadda. I was enthralled, a gift of Blogging. Here is my honest review of the same.

Overview:
Paperback king, Aditya kapoor’s life is straight out of a modern man’s fantasy. His literary stardom is perfectly balanced by a loving wife and a spectacular career. With everything he touches turning to gold, Aditya is on a winning streak.
Shreya Kaushik is a student with a heart full of ambition. Young, beautiful and reckless, Shreya speaks her mind and obsessively chases after what she wants. And what she wants is to be a bestselling author.
What happens when their worlds collide? Is it possible to love two people at the same time? Can real ambition come in the way of blind passion? Can trust once broken, be regained?

Master storyteller Ravi Subramanian delves into the glitzy world of bestsellers and uncovers a risky dalliance between a superstar novelist and his alluring protégé.

The Bestseller She Wrote is a combustible cocktail of Love, Betrayal & Redemption.

Plot:
The plot revolves around the dynamic Banker & hotshot author, Aditya Kapoor, famous for his Thrillers in the writing world. He is a happily married middle aged man blessed with a doting wife, Maya who sacrificed all her whims at the cost of her husband’s success and a kid of six years, Aryan.
His life is going smooth till he is trapped in a clandestine extra marital affair with an ambitious management trainee stoic Shreya Kaushik, of IIM, Bengaluru. She shares bed to attain her dreams.
Their first meeting starts with bitter arguments which irritates Aditya but soon he is enamored by the beauty of the young, attractive and sexy Shreya and they slip into a relationship. She is a great schemer & she manipulates the opportunity at the maximum to achieve her dream of becoming bestselling author under the reigns of a best seller author. Her ulterior motive is to climb the ladder to attain popularity in the literary world and she finds Aditya, the most suitable one who is spellbound and caught in the fire of passion.
Aditya’s smooth life comes to an end and his life is totally perturbed and he is in a complete mess. Maya comes to know of the relationship and she is completely devastated. The story takes a lot of twists and turns and creates a great havoc in his personal and professional life and the shrewd Shreya takes full advantage of the situation and she intensely persuades Aditya to help her in publishing her debut novel. Aditya reads the motive behind the adulterous relationship and tries to move out, but it’s not that easy for him to come out unscathed. In the beginning, the story moves at a snail pace and it mostly covers the romantic & sexual overtures of the duo, Aditya & Shreya. Ravi has tried his hands for the first time on the genre romance and till pages 150 or so, he goes very slow giving a view that the story is been dragged, but after that the pace spruces up and the story unfolds with the strong characters of the plot, Sanjay, a long-term friend of Aditya, Shreya, Maya and Diana and their characters have been etched well. The climax of the story is unexpected. Aditya is fixed in an emotional turmoil and his friend Sanjay too plays against him but still he triumphs all the calamities and finally the story has a happy ending after great upheavals and Shreya too achieve her share of been the bestseller of her debut novel as promised by Aditya. The aspiring authors will get a clue of publishing world and it can be a great help for the novice.

How Aditya manages the pressures and emerges out triumphantly, do grab a copy for yourself and indulge in reading.

I finished it off in just 36 hours, try your luck!

The author has for the first time in his career touched genre, Romance and has tried his best and I am sure he can excel in his next writing. I give him a rating 4/5 for his efforts. It is a pure melodrama and it can bag great opportunity in Bollywood front.
I wish Mr.Ravi Subramanian all the best for his future endeavors.

Terror of Terrorism

An intense pain rebels
Envisioning
Men
Quenching their thirsts
By slaughtering
Their own species
Growing wild
In thy name of
Region
Race
Religion.

Pretermitting
That
Above all
Stands
The beauty of relationship
Of humanity.

Bullets fired
Ripping bodies in air
Feelings chiselled
Bodies soiled in blood
Mother loses her flesh
Wife loses her love
The innocent kids
Orphaned
Before they understand the term, Death.

Nation salutes departed souls
Conferring
Posthumously
With medals.
Father control thy tears
Accepting them to be martyrs.

WOW – ‘It’s Not My Resolution’

                            A Very
Happy New Year to all!!!


It’s a
very common & age old practice to prepare for some resolutions to follow in
the year and we vow to follow it religiously, but it all remains in black &
white. Very few or some rare species do adhere to it throughout the year.
Generally people forget & stray far away from the points of resolutions
that they had secretly jotted down or vowed in public that is public announcement
among social or family circles. It’s true that people do prepare a list of To Do
list, which starts its advent in late December and it’s ready before the mark
of the New Year.
I liked
the idea of WOW to ask to jot down the ideas that we don’t intend To Do in 2016
or further, a twist in the tale of To Do list, a list to be prepared, Not To Do
ones in this year 2016 or henceforth. I scratched my head first going through
the WOW blogadda.
Few funky
ideas cropped up 
Not
to continue with my Dieting Programme
:
Phew : I started my diet program last year and adhered to it strictly
controlling my taste buds & adopting a view that I eat to live not I live
to eat. At the back of my mind, I dreamt that I would shrink to zero size and
will flaunt my figure in outfits that will accentuate my curves and will wear sexy
outfits and blah-blah. I ate oats without sugar, green boiled veggies which I
despised since my childhood and one two fruits in whole 24 hours starving my
body and craving for a model like figure. Whole year passed, no feasible
changes set in, continue to be more or less the same and when I stood on a
weighing scale, only few kilos had displaced from a quintal which dampened my
spirit and I vowed to drop the dieting programme. My all dreams and desires to
flaunt my figure got crushed under my current weight. Whew…One idea listed in my Not To Do
List.
J

Learn
To Say “NO”
: I
need to learn to say, “No”. I am a person of helpful nature and try to help
others at the most and sometimes, I overstretch in providing help to others,
but when I am in need most of the people shy away, generally those faces for
whom I moved further than my ability. At trying times, such responses from
familiar faces hurt me to the core and at times, I turn hostile (rarely). After
going through such events, I thought that I need to learn the lesson of saying
No and to mean it. I have surpassed four decades of my life, saying Yes every
time, but now onwards, I will say, No and I really mean it. One more idea listed in my Not To Do List.
For this
year 2016, two ideas in Not To Do List is enough. Rest I leave for 2017.
I
believe in the adage, “Slow & Steady Wins The Race”, in trying to grab
more, I may lose what I intend to gain.
Once
again, Wish you all, “A Very Happy New Year.”
“Hope, Smiles from
the threshold of the year to come, Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”

― Alfred Lord
Tennyson

Teardrops

 

Oh Tears
My best buddies
Cling to me
When I am elated
Hangout with me
When I am depressed
Brushing out
My passion
Of happiness
Of pain
Treading with me
In love
In separation
Oh
I am in love with you
Tears.
You are
Always there with me
Sharing & celebrating
My highs & lows.

लागी छुटे ना ।।

तुम्हारी खुशी की खातिर
हमने वादा तो दे दिया
हम उदास न होगें
तेरे बिन
बस एक बार
मेरी आँखों में
झाँक तो लिया होता
मेरी आँखों में तैरती है
तस्वीर तेरी।।

भूलाना तो नाममुमकिन है
मेरे ख्बाबों में भी बसते हो
सिर्फ तुम ही तुम।।

प्यार मेरा
सच्चा है तेरे लिए
पर स्वार्थी नहीं
करेंगे इंतजार तेरा
आखिरी सांसों तक
ये आस लिए
कभी तो तुझे
एहसास होगा
मेरी धङकनों में
बस है नाम तेरा।।

Happy New Year 2016

night

Happy New Year 2016


The journey of 2015 is over
Amidst celebrations & woos
We have stepped into a new year 2016
with a loud bang bang on our doors.

Hope
we pull out this year
with 
more of happiness
more of smiles
doubling the joys forever.

Let’s take a resolution
To learn from the instances
which
subtracted our happiness
not to repeat the mistakes
which
minus our relationships.

Learn to Multiply the joys of life
Learn to divide the sorrows
Welcome people with open hearts
Forgive those who hurts you
give them a chance to survive
to learn the good virtues of life.

Keep your worries at bay
Cherish the good moments
Refresh the old ones
Keep up your courage to knock the odds out
Listen the needy
Outreach the people in misery
Share your concerns for the people in need
Care for the people ill.

Spread happiness by passing smiles
to the passer by
who touch your lives
Sieve out hatred from your life
Gather joys by the small tit-bits of life.

© Ila Varma 31/12/2015

A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 TO ALL!!!
