Review: The book “Title is Untitled” comes under the category of Social Adult Book as it deals with problems faced by the adults. But it also gives us a reminder that criminal offenses are happening with children too so even they need to be careful. The book has 11 short stories by the 3 authors covering the burning issues of child marriages, sexual fantasies, marital rapes, suicides among men, domestic violence, prostitution, abduction, blackmailing, abuse of power, retirement scams, education and with such themes of the stories it gives us (the readers) an opportunity to consider over such issues of the society. Coming to the stories, I liked the fact that I got to read something new through this book. There is a story about a woman who makes her living using the domestic violence laws by marrying various men, divorce on some unacceptable reasons to get alimony from him and search for a new victim. This is actually happening in our society. The very recent movie Dolly Ki Doli also showed the same theme. It is actually the females who are misusing the domestic violence laws which were made for their protection. Then there is a story which reflects scams in education field. Not just schooling or college, there are scams even in doctorate level of education and this story speaks about a non-qualified person for any sorts of education finds an institute ( which is not approved and is not even legal) that offers Ph.D. degrees for negotiable fees. He pays a hefty amount of money for his degree and ends up with getting a Ph.D. Each story in the book speaks of a social sin, and about the victims. I liked that the authors have chosen topics which are considered as taboo to discuss in the society. The writing style is a worthy appreciating. The authors have focused more on the content which is really nice. You don’t get to read such books often but I am lucky enough to have read it. A must read book and I highly recommend it.
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.
