MY REVIEW: I was provided with a copy of the book by the author Probal Mazumdar in exchange for an honest review.

The story has all the elements of a Bollywood movie: childhood sweethearts who part in unexplained circumstances, letters that are written but not read for years, villains that go around beating up the hero, the heroine in a coma and a key that contains all the secrets of the past.

The book begins when Siddharth gets a phone call from an unknown caller, informing him that his old girlfriend Hazel was hurt in a car accident and is now lying in a coma in a hospital in Jamshedpur. The mysterious caller also informs him that there are letters written by Hazel to him that he needs to read. Siddharth has not heard from Hazel in seventeen years and the phone call sends him in a tizzy.

Siddharth revisits the past in which Hazel and he met in school, became friends and then fell in love. But Hazel abruptly leaves town and Siddharth becomes a victim of nasty gossip. However, Siddharth moves on in life, goes to college, starts his career and even gets married, though his marriage later fails.

Siddharth goes to Jamshedpur to be by Hazel’s side. There he faces many old memories and is given a “key” that unlocks the secrets of the past.

The story is certainly riveting. The reader is faced with several questions. Why did Hazel leave town? Who is the unknown caller? Will Hazel recover from her coma? Can Siddharth and Hazel finally be together?

“Key to My Soul” is certainly a heart-warming story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I certainly recommend it to everyone. The book is available on Amazon and in select bookstores.

MY REVIEW: The author Smit Kapila kindly sent me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is a collection of 65 short stories. Each story is accompanied by a caricature that has been drawn by the author himself. The stories are of a vast variety but revolve around a common theme, i.e. the workplace.

The book is refreshingly different. Each story is brief and amusing as well as entertaining to read. Though the stories revolve around people working in the IT industry, anyone who has worked in an organization will be able to relate to and enjoy reading them.

If you are looking for a breezy and light read, I will certainly recommend this book to you. People of all ages can certainly understand and enjoy the book.

The book, “65 Colours of Rainbow”, is available on Amazon and in all major bookstores.
