Favourite Quotes

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when u give of yourself that you truly give.

Her education only made her unhappy thinking about it - that no matter how much she changed her life, she could not change the world that surrounded her.”

If you do what you need, you’re surviving. If you do what you want, you’re living.

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go

A racy start.... but the pace slackens from MRT TO HKIA and all the hurried action, teams A & B, plans A& B confuses the reader.
For a book of this genre the words reserved for a prose easy reading are distracting.... simple will do. The motives and character development is strong and hopefully it continues as the plot unfolds.
Best wishes.

Thank you Mahrukh for the constructive feedback. I have started to edit the words for easier reading. Appreciate the time. :-)

THE MANUSCRIPT COULD BE PUBLISHED... DIFFICULT TO GAUGE WHERE THE STORY IS LEADING. THE THREE CHAPTERS ARE LOADED WITH DOUBTS, MUSINGS AND FRETTING OF THE LEAD CHARACTERS. SOME TENSION AND DRAMA COULD HAVE BEEN BEEN CREATED IN THE THIRD CHAPTER TO MAKE THE READER ANXIOUS AS TO HOW THE EVENTS WILL UNFOLD. IT'S JUST GREY AND MORE GREY WITH NO HINT OF A SILVER LINING.

The first three chapters are just autobiography.... no inkling or clues as to how the writer will become a millionaire...i expected some teasers in the next two chapters but the story is nor moving forward. The back story could have come in flashbacks which will make the read more interesting.
Editing and changing the story structure will make for an interesting read.
I am curious as to what Kunal has to say in the chapters ahead.

the first story is topical and relevant... but not the overdose of physicality. the second and third stories are i could not figure out... may be there is a readership for these stories.... The writing style is fine but the content is not my cup of tea...

weird and wow! what guts to pen the stuff Remesh writes. it's funny, honest, may offend many....especially the ladies... but that's his perspective. Read it or leave it and i am curious as to who is rattling the cynical protagonist.

Life and leisurely pace of Bandora is vividly imagined. Good character profiles and i like that the story is not rushed but slowly building up to the chaos that will descend on both the families.

charming stories. good prose.... all the creative writing coming through. Aviral take his time to get to the point which many readers may find tedious in this age of instant connectivity.... but i enjoyed the slow flow of the stories. and if Aviral is still unattached lucky is the lady who hooks him....

The effort in compiling the book is heartfelt since it emerges from the problems Jahnavi confronted and took them on head-on instead of lapsing into self-pity and depression. i like the tittle of the book- creative and unusual.

Wow! so good read it twice. While Rust evoked sadness, the same experienced reading 'the kite runner '( no comparison- only because of the kite) Burgundy's twist in the tale socked me in the face. Green gently leads the reader from hopelessness to hope; to break free from the shackles of prejudices which fetter us.

Fast read for the target audience it is written for. i hope in the later chapters there is some exploring of the premises stated in the synopsis which are relevant to this young, vulnerable age group. the writing style is peppy.

Jahnavi i will definitely read your your book and if a pretty girl like you finds time off from her world of electronics do indulge yourself in my romance novel 'a promise is a promise.' culled from many true life incidents. i have tried to be different than the run of the mill mills and boon of yesteryears. best wishes.

Racy.Pace never slackens. Well-researched. Sprinkled with humor to enable his protagonist to cope with his own inner demons and fears. The author is clearly a crime story aficionado.

Did not want to leave the world of Cloudtains - but crashed to earth refreshed and entertained. The writer her child characters Arya and Nitya bang on. For that touch of innocence adults too should invest their time in this book..

THIS THE THIRD TIME I AM WRITING A REVIEW FOR NITIN. I LOVED READING THE THREE CHAPTERS, THE ROMANTIC ANGLE MADE UP FOR THE TECHNICAL JARGON. THE AMRITGARH CREATED FROM NITIN'S IMAGINATION IS DELIGHTFUL. THIS BOOK IS A METAPHOR THE PROTAGONIST'S COMING OF AGE AND HIS WAYWARD WAYS

The humor is subtle, interesting characters. Maujula Lal takes us through all the intrigues and shenanigans of the media houses. The politics, inter-personal relationships of co-workers, their fears and the jockeying for power are put forth very realistically in the first three chapters. i wonder how Manush deals with his problems and the explosive document he finds in chapter three as the story unfolds. Will read this book.

An interesting take on life of a recruit/ intern starting his work assignment in the corporate world. Office politics and romance / work relations seem real. The hero is mooning too much over unrequited love.

The prose is excellent.The characters we encounter in the first three chapters are well fleshed out.. The vivid imagery of the 'jungle and Dhartipura' breathe life and jump out of of every page. The first two chapters begin at a slow pace but the third is edgy and i want to know what happens next.

The site has opened its doors to visitors good luck to all of us - especially to the brave-hearts (me included) who have taken this bold step to submit their stories. Whatever the outcome - bouquets or brickbats remember it takes guts and courage to put your work out there for all to assess/ critique, like, love, reject.....chin up and take it in your stride.

unusual stories. i like the optimism. in all the stories the protagonist/s though down and out always find ways and means to put their skills to use - as the author holds forth true talent will somehow find an outlet and get the recognition it deserves.
