Lemon Girl by Jyoti Arora - Exclusive first hand review

It’s not always that you stumble upon lemons . And these small looking tiny little objects squeeze the hell out of you . More than these I liked the name – Nirvi and interesting weaves of events that unfold and at times are left untold.

The entire book or as I call the story happens at a pace where suddenly you are ahead of time and at times , way being the actual time . The author as tried to describe the character of Nirvi by building it up or linking it around the other characters  which I found rare yet good. The story is not only about love and the complexities surrounding the concept of ‘love’ but also more about how sudden flashes of moments or of certain people can and may put your life out a beaten path .  

Nirvi , may not be the real strong girl who may have done or taken some hard calls in life but its more about how life around her changed her in ways unimaginable . Each chapter or sequences are very well build up and questions us , as readers hard and society we live in at large on the certain set of known and unknown things that exist.

You may not be able to take a call if you stand by Nirvi or not but what you would be able to do is to have an alternate thinking stream and pattern . Remember , life doesn’t treat us the way we want . It’s always the opposite.

I would want to give the entire story out but what i would leave you with a thought as shard by Arsh - When it's time for you to fall in love, even a lemon can become the cause of it .

Take time out and read this interesting piece which encompasses a whole lot of emotions , self restraint and struggled and tangled life and above love – Lemons. 


BTW - I have my own personal FaceBook page now and may I request you to  ' like' / 'comment' / 'share' , in case you like my writing or me :) .

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch movies like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be, in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon one. 

The perks like most of us know, is having an unprecedented power, ( used to-be) a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .

Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of friends who are IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does s/he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on how & what is a life of an IPS.

Studying is just a part of it.

The civil services examinations are considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious. And not only me, couple of others as well . 

Today, rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR. As I am usually up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks, we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer.

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal

While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned, unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 

Known world over as the princess of hill stations, this place has made me fall in love all over again. My first thought on reaching here was, this can't be in India. 

This has to be a foreign location. Pristine surrounding, lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikanal …

What if & What about

Every night when she tried to sleep, she thought of the 'what if's' in her life that lead to the 'what about's'..

What if tomorrow or the next moment she was dead..

What about the dreams and aspirations she wanted to fulfill..

What about the loved ones she fought an hour back..

What about her 'would be' husband and kids..

What about the life she ever imagined..

What about making it big..

What about the home for homeless cause she wanted to build all around..

What about the heartbreaks she went..

What about the travel she is yet to set foot upon..

What about the many thanks & apologies she owes to people..

What about her sweet kitten- Mando..

What about her family and her friends..

As she was watching her favorite sitcom series she realized that one day she will not be around & yet there is so much to do. What she also thought was the time gone by, all these years, she was just basically waking up and sleeping down. In between, it was all air.
