Author has taken up prevalent topics like bullying in class and hostel experiences to enough sensitive ones like sexual interests and agony of a broken heart with sheer proficiency. This story doesn’t try to change the mindset in one stroke but sows the seed of thoughts deep inside the reader’s head.
1. Author’s way of writing is incredible. It directly connects with the nerve of readers.
2.Prose expressing the thoughts of Tushita are heart touching.
1. I can’t relate the story with the title. Don’t know what could be a better substitute, but this one definitely…not
2. I wonder which GIRL’S hostel has such a liberal policy to allow a boy on regular basis and later the other boy as well.
3. In the fight scene between Rudra and Vivaan, characters are not described clearly
4. Albeit Vivaan is shown to be a perfect guy. I find him quite unreal?
5. There was no need to describe a statement through intense elaboration…I think readers are quite smart to get your point at once .
