About Sapna Bhattacharya

I cook in the kitchen as well as on paper. If there is no waft of freshly baked goodies emanating from my kitchen then I am certainly travelling, gathering ingredients for my next venture. At present busy with the sequel to "The World of Cloudtains".

Favourite Quotes

“You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work. You should never engage in action for the sake of reward, nor should you long for inaction. Perform work in this world, Arjuna, as a man established within himself - without selfish attachments, and alike in success and defeat.” - Bhagwad Gita

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ― Maya Angelou

The number of pages uploaded are too less to figure out the mood of the story. I found the writing too cliched too....

I enjoyed reading the three chapers. The cover is great and I want to read the rest of it. "India is advertised as culturally rich and west allegedly morally bankrupt - Boy you can't be wrong (wronged is a real word)" This statement is so true and hits us hard when we step out of our cocoons. It breaks our heart to accept the fact.
On the downside, the second chapter gets a little boring with no pace in the story. I feel the meetings need to be paced up and spruced up. I would have otherwise given 5 stars to the manuscript. The poem too is a little long and I wonder how will people not conversant in Hindi/Urdu understand.
To sum up you write well Gaurav. All The Best!

To have an audience other the friends whose opinions are always rose-tinted is delightful. I'm glad that you took time to read it. Second chapter is lengthy, will perhaps appear funnier on celluloid. Poem does limit the audience. It is the only piece in the entire book which isn't in English & I'm gonna stick with this one. The book is rather large when I think of the ADD this generation suffers from. Although it isn't a big book by traditional standards. But nowadays the GenNext has bare minimum attention span & only a fast paced novella can take their breath away. At the end of the day one has to write what one knows about & stay truthful. I'm trying to do that. Sometimes people aren't going to like it. I will live with that.
Enough of my rant here  Take care, Sapna & thanks yet again

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.

dhruv sharma

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.

An intricate plot written very well. In the beginning though I feel at places it was a little more descriptive than required, otherwise was hooked on till the end.

Aniesha has anyone ever told you that you are a born writer? Well I am...
Today morning while lazily browsing through BGB I noticed this new book uploaded. I clicked on Read Book, very sure that this subject will not interest me but wanted to browse through. Then I found myself falling for J, texting him as Rhea, as anxious as Rhea and hated to put the book down. Didn't want it all to end. Had never thought that texting, journal entries, emails could hold a reader's attention so well. This bloodygoodbook sure needs to be published. Till then waiting to read the rest......

Hi Sapna,
Thank you for loving the book so much :) I hope other readers love it just as much as you did :D *fingers crossed*
I had loved every minute of creating this story :)

Well written and holds the readers attention. I personally feel it would have been better if by the end of the third chapter the focus was not so much on Debu. Wanted a little more insight into Kaushik's disappearance. Will want to read further anyhow.

There is something I liked about this story, not sure what, maybe the fact that it is too close to real life. The only downer is that it is written in a very simple way without much build up on characters and the plot.

Loved stories 2 and 3. With some added drama can do well as a collection of inspirational stories.

Though there are sparks of a good style of writing, the entire ms needs lot of editing and tightening up to move at a faster pace and hold the readers attention.

The inside is as amazing as the cover. I am surprised that not many people have read this manuscript! It will make out to be a great self-help book. Loved the way the writer has related the problems to the examples. Sincerely wish you get published Jahnavi

I loved the way the characters and the plots are interspersed and still each stands out. I would certainly want to read the book if published. The length of the sample chapters I felt, can be daunting for many.

So True, So very true.......... "Criticism is hard to take at first. Trust me, I've been there. But learn to think of crit marks as a knife. Each one is designed to cut away the bad and leave a scar. Scars prove you've lived, learned and walked away a winner. Any writer who tells you they don't need edits is lying. I don't care if they have 100 books out. Edits make you grow and if you aren't growing as a writer, you are dead.”

My thanks to everyone who stopped by to read my manuscript. That shows that the child in us is still alive and somewhere we have not let the hard knocks of life take away our innocence.

It was a racy start to finish read for me and am sure would have gobbled down the whole novel if that was in my hand. But I suppose will have to wait till it gets published.
