Review: I liked this book, it was honest and entertaining. It was an interesting fictionalized memoir. The book was really worth reading. It has been quiet sometime since I have read a book within so little time. There are very few good books these days. Gauri, the lead and the author of this story, is a radical by birth. Always considered wrong person in the conserved, army family. She never got the amount of love she deserved from her parents due to her radical attitude. That makes her tomboyish. In easy words, she was so improbable of a girl. The latter part of the story deals with her adventures, flings, loves and her marriages. A must read.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
