MY REVIEW :
“Fighting for truth and even if you need to go against your dearest one, you don’t hesitate to go. “
The book is quite an inspiring read which will teach you how to live in this cruel world, where sometimes you are being asked such terrible questions by the person we did not expect we need to prove our honestly and at that time a person becomes speechless and prefer to remain quiet and leave that place. Meera, the main character of this novel had faced many problems in her life.
Whether it was financial problems or it was her personal relation issues. She always stood for everyone , no matter whether it was family, friends or a person working at her home. She did not differentiate between high class or poor people. Nor between higher caste or lower one’s. What mattered to Meera was everyone is human. The book start from her convocation day and ends with taking one of the most beautiful decision of her life. Before her MBBS, she never accepted any proposal, or in other words if said, no boy touched her heart. On her convocation day, she met Aman, the boy who loved her and after some days even Meera fell in love with Aman deeply. With every meeting,she would fall for Aman more. Meera never cared for what people would think. She always stood besides Aman in his most difficult times. There was no one who was ready to help Aman in his most crucial times and even at that Meera tried her best to save Aman by any mean. She even contacted Abhay and took his help to save Aman. On the other hand, Abhay also loved Meera.
When things were getting fine, but one deal, a single deal made by Aman changed everything. Apart from Meera’s life, Madhu Vajpayee highlighted some aspects which need a change in this society. She threw light on one of the most prevailing aspect that is reservations. The reason why Indian choose other countries for doing job and leaving their own country. The character’s were very well presented. Priya and Kiran were best friends of Meera. The novel was a quick and one time read. G.K Mishra, father of Meera was one of the biggest strength in her life. Meera punished her own brother Raghav for the crime he did but then after some time even Meera’s mother accepted the truth. It was a perfect book and can motivate one.
