Book Review of The Untold Story by Ridhi Drolia

The Untold Story by Ridhi Drolia is a sweet romantic fiction which is beautifully narrated using third person narrative. The book allures the readers with its amazing descriptions and the flow.

Ridhi Drolia

Cover: The cover of the book is appealing and the way with which the color scheme is used makes it great. The couple seems so much in love and the blush of the guy shows their bond.

Title: The title ‘The Untold Story’ is the main highlight of the book. The whole book revolves around it and the author has beautifully maintained this intact. Plus, the sub title, ‘ A tale of True Love and Beyond’ gives us a hint about the main theme but never explains clearly.

BlurbLove comes in different forms. But in all its forms, it comes with various challenges. Only those who can combat those challenges are true lovers. 

The Untold Story is the tale of Vihaan and Riaa. Vihaan falls for Riaa’s charms at first sight and brings to her life crazy adventures and madness. They soon emerge as two hearts with one soul and their intimate fantasies begin to unravel in exotic places. 

Their bond experience more downs than ups. These unexpected twists and turns bring Vihaan and Riaa closer and their romantic tale turn into one of lifetime bonding. 

The story takes a drastic turn after the lovely couple is blessed with a baby boy. It should be a joyous moment, but instead, haunting memories of Vihaan’s own childhood break out as a fresh wound in his mind. 

Read the novel to know what could make a father unhappy in the happiest moment of his life and how he combats his fear.

Theme: The story rotates around three themes. One theme is love which we notice between Ria and Vihaan. The way they handle their stuations is mind blowing. Even a real life should take some notes from this fictional couple. The other theme is never ending friendship between Tanya and Vihaan. Tanya is the narrator of the story and she cannot hear bad about her friend so she starts telling about him. The third theme is of a social issue for which you need to read the book.

Style: Ridhi follows really simple and clear style of writing where she has expressed her thoughts without using any fancy words. This shows that she doesn’t want to complicate her thoughts or glitter them behind fancy words. She has used third person narrative style and further a story within a story technique. The descriptions are eye catching and keeps us hooked till the end.

Although we have so many good things about this book but still I feel the story could have been better. The plotline was not that strong. The characters of Ria and Tanya were not fully developed. I felt the ending could have been different. It didn’t make much sense to me. The grammatical errors could have been rectified with another round of editing. Overall, it was one time read.

Book Blitz of Lean In To Relationships by Rishabh Jhol

Print Length: 143 pages
Language: English
ASIN: B0749CLW5G
Format: Kindle Edition

 

 

Doubt has pivoted many a relationship across the centuries. Whether it is Othello suspicious of Desdemona or through the rise of paranoia as a trope in twentieth-century writings. While paranoia naturally suggests the vulnerability of individual mind to social rhetoric, it is also the space for deep interrogation of the individual that renders him/her to paranoia. This novel presents that doubt has the potential to be a space of liberation.Madeeha works in Jordan to rehabilitate Syrian refugees. Zehen, a political analyst from India, meets her in the US during their social impact program. He is intrigued and charmed by her and falls deeply in love. But the world political climate, with its accompanying cultural narratives about terror and pain, infects Zehen’s mind. Zehen begins to suspect Madeeha as a possible mujahid. Will he find his truth?

Fear doesn’t devastate; it stirs the inner pot. It is a tender love story that triumphs heartbreaks and sets the foundation for a deep lasting future relationship – a delightful emancipation from social intrigues and cultural constraints.
Truly inspirational builds upon the basis of not second guessing everything, and taking risks instead of regretting not taking them. A must-read for anyone. 5 Stars. – Bill McManus, Author, and creator of the Storytime Pup

At the time of my birth, my parents shared a one-room hut with six other family members in one of the poorest neighborhoods of Delhi.
It was a hot day in the month of March 1995. I was in standard 4th and had an examination the following day. As was regular in that locality, we didn’t have electricity that day. I couldn’t study or sleep properly. One of the watershed moments happened when I came back from school the next day. We had an inverter installed at home. I knew we couldn’t afford an inverter. But my dad was always convinced that the way out of poverty for our family is through education.
Despite an interest in creative writing, I chose to study a subject that society values more – Finance. Later, I got into one of the top colleges for finance in the country. My first salary out of college (in 2007, when I was 20 years old) was higher than that of my dad’s salary at the time.
When I was 24 years old, I had everything that makes one happy – loving parents, great partner, close-knit group of friends, and career path that exceeded every goal. Yet, I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t sad either; but it never felt like my life. I had carefully and meticulously built that life though. Contextually, it was the safe thing to do.
Following year though, I had to deal with the loss of my 7 year old relationship and of my 5 year old job. My identity was crushed. My biggest lesson was that you can fail at what you don’t want, and what you consider safe; you might as well take a chance at what you truly want.
Next year, I got my ‘ideal’ job but walked away from it. Failure had taught me to be more ambitious and audacious. I had reached a point in my life where I wanted my work to have more meaning; and to stand for something more important than myself.
I started a political consulting company to maneuver social ascendance of marginalized communities by equalizing access to political capital. I primarily did topical research for MPs for their debates in the parliament and on TV shows.
Along with running my own company, I focused on my passion for writing and traveling as well. I solo travelled to all seven wonders of the world, and did two-cross country trips by train in India and in the US. I have also written and published three fiction novels.

Confessions of an Immigrant-10

Hello Lovelies,

I hope you guys are having a great time in your life and you might be waiting for my confession so I thought before I get busy with my life I should update you about the vacations. Well, vacations in Canada are short and we had just two weeks break. Apart from my job search mission I went to Stratford to meet my other set of relatives.

IMG_20170824_135916

I have so many relatives that I always get confused where to go and when to go. So, I went to Union Station from where my relative picked me up and then we went to CNE Exhibition for picnic. Those who are not familiar with CNE, let me update you with some information. Every year there is an exhibition near CN tower hence its known as CNE exhibition. The place has so many rides which is made keeping in mind the kids, youngsters and the older people. Due to this exhibition many people get a job. There is a special area for the food court where you will find foods from Indian to Chinese to Thai to Italian and many more brands.

IMG_20170824_174426

The mains being Harveys, Tim Hortons, McDonalds, Pizza Pizza, etc… We had three families with us and kids to accompany us. Trust me it is difficult to be with kids and especially when they are toddlers. We spent almost 10 hours there and it didn’t feel like we spent so much of time. We reached Stratford around 9:30 at night. Stratford trip has been amazing. I got the chance to taste homemade food prepared by my relatives and dishes were Lemon bars, roasted chicken, lemon chicken, pizza, zuccini, Mutter Paneer, White Chana, eggs etc. Stratford is a peaceful place and it has a town named Shakespeare where every other shop starts with the name of Shakespeare. I need to mention something special about the working style here. The people here are hardworking. They go to different places to set up their markets and it is not anyone’s cup of tea. They get up at around 4 O’ clock to start up their work and it takes almost 2 hours to set up their market.

The last day of my vacation was super amazing as I went to Eaten Centre with my another folks. We watched a hindi movie, sorry I am bad with remembering names of the movie. But it is the latest movie by Ayushmann Khurana and the girl who was in Zor lagake Haisha. You guys can make your guesses. We had ice- cream and some food. We even went to buy some winter clothes and I really loved the ambience their. It was a perfect ending to my vacation. I also got 3 books in an amazing deal of 10$. Since my birthday is coming so my relatives thought to give those books in a present.

Now its been a week since my college started. Things are changed now. Earlier we were enthusiastic as we knew nobody but now we know everyone so there is nothing new to discover and just the teachers. The teachers are pretty cool and I am looking forward to something new.

IMG_20170824_134956

I was in Brampton, yet another weekend with the family. My cousin told me that they were waiting for my confession and reading them is a ritual in the family. Things have been in settling mode. I am still learning new things.

IMG_20171002_120818

I met two of my old friends here and it was fun catching up with them. There was a time when I was looking for my ways and now I was the one guiding them what to do and what not.

IMG_20170930_184246.jpg

Everyone who comes here, get to know the reality of life. The first reaction is where I have ended upto. Second is the never ending homesickness. Third is, you miss the good and bad times. I miss my butterfly and Krishna’s growing up times. I wish I could see her new developments and Krishna’s new discoveries. I miss being with my friends when they are going through hard times and all you can do is just message them or call them. Next is, you miss your favourite places which used to give you peace. Here I couldn’t find a single place they can give some solace to my heart. my search is going on. I hope I get something.

IMG_20170906_165637.jpg

This segment I am writing after a month. The previous part I wrote before and now I am combining the two sets of emotions. The good part is I have got a job finally. Things are coming on a track. The new semester is a roller coaster ride for all of us. The new SAP programming has taken away my mind. The assignments only make me realize how easy it is and I learnt about snipping tool for a change. Not only this, last week we gave a small team presentation which gave me loads of confidence and I realized I can speak in front of 30 people. It was a good experience. I am liking the new semester though it is crazy. These days I am in love with the subways and TTC buses. I am completely used to the day to day travelling here. Now summer is gone and winters are knocking the door which is the toughest time. Now this calls for Winter Shopping.

IMG_20170927_114610.jpg

I recently volunteered for the Job Fair and made many friends. it was an amazing experience and I can say that I made lifelong friends in one go. Even the teacher Sevana was nice with all of us. We got lunch and even got a special chance to interact with companies like Walmart, Costco, Tim Hortons, The Body Shop, TD Bank, Hudson bay, McDonalds etc. The people who were with me were understanding and very accommodating.

IMG_20170903_194541

In all this how can I forget about Karan and Riya. they have been the pillars of my life recently. Karan and Riya recently came from India. One is a junior and other is a class buddy. I can’t believe that destiny had planned all this. I have been trying to meet Karan from a long time and we ended up meeting in Canada at Tim Hortons. When these two came to my life, I made sure I guide them so that they don’t end up making any sort of mistakes and I am glad to see them happy. We guys can easily co relate to each other and I feel strong and positive when I am around them.

IMG_20170919_232425.jpg

The major segment that went by was my BIRTHDAY. I was sad as I was missing my majors. But life has to go on and my roommates made my day so things were pretty cool. I had a sudden realization, Festivals, Seasons are passing by and I am in this country all alone missing my loved ones. With every passing day, my urge to meet my family keeps on growing. I wish these years quickly pass by. Then again I ponder over, I am missing those moments in my life which were mine before. I am missing my dad’s growing age, my mom’s never ending hope, my dadi’s wrinkled face, butterfly’s naive age, Krishna’s study moments, Saloni, Alpa and Tanya’s never ending talks. Above all, my Honors Gang, the all time blabbers and what not. Okay, so before I end on a teary note, I will wish you guys Happy Diwali in advance as I will be having my exams at that time. Stay tuned for my next updates and forgive me for being so late in updating this. I love you guys a lot and you know it.
