Synopsis

Synopsis

Irresistible is a strange tale of a young man named Ramchandra, who in my opinion bears strong resemblance to any progressive small town youth. He and his life is ordinary in every sense of terms or seems so, except for his insatiable thirst for sexual pleasures, a trait that he discovers early in his life. A free minded and footloose young man, he has a way with women, who tend to find and even discover sheer pleasure in his company. The story boasts of one year of Ramchandra’s restless youth and his sexual escapades in that one year, set in the fictitious town of Hasanganj in Western Uttar Pradesh, where people value religion more than anything else and despise Ram’s damn care demeanor towards religion and every other crude and orthodox value or norm that the town’s populace stands for.

Despite of being surrounded by innumerable pleasures yielded through numerous women, love is still amiss from Ram’s life. Hailing from an exceedingly religious, affluent and reputed family, with a past replete with honor and philanthropy, he is deemed by his own family as a good for nothing fellow. Yearning for his father’s affection all his life he grows up to be lonely and a love less man. As he narrates to you himself , “I grew up without any form of tenderness , warmth and love in my life. I grew up on my own, making mistakes, learning from them, undoing my learning and then learning even better.” However, he does find love in a washerwoman named Satyawati only to lose her later.

It would be of certain benefit to summate everything by stating that Irresistible is a story of small town youth who stands at odds against the society and his own family, owing to his actions in pursuance of finding pleasure and eventually love in the company of women, something he could not resist. It is also the tale of a hurtfully lonely man born out his time, who faces a constant struggle of living with his beliefs in a town where everything he believes in is a sin, in some or the other way.

You write very well Dhruv, but there is nothing fresh in the premise. Can't say if the story takes a twist after the uploaded chapters.....the only thing that made me read till the end was the captivating style of writing.

thank you ma'am. I understand your dissatisfaction with the book. It does not have a story line per se but is a collection of memoirs, a lot of which couldn't be covered in first two chapters.

there is a lot of meandering, the story lost its grip after Ali and protagonist go near the girls' hostel and stared abruptly with satyavati. has potential but needs rework and carving. all the best..!!

This book has a graph...sometimes its very interesting...n other times it just goes down and you cannot visualise anything and you feel a lil lost...but again it gets its grip... ends on a very very gripping note...some parts could be edited and revamped...would definitely want to read further!!!
