Adulting by Neharika Gupta
About the book
“Adulting “ by Neharika Gupta revolves around three characters Tejas, Ruhi and Aisha .
Tejas is a best seller writer and struggling to overcome writer’s block. Ruhi is working at Literacy Publishing . Aisha is a popular blogger .
Ruhi works hard to take the literacy to a new level . But her mother is always there to throw her weight about. That’s why she hides her relationship with Tejas.
On the other hand Aisha is a popular fashion and lifestyle blogger and lives alone in Delhi. Aisha has an external faith in her beauty. She joins literacy as Social media manager.
Ruhi‘s too much insecurity makes Tejas uncomfortable, and he breaks up with her . Soon he feels attracted towards Aisha .
Aisha is too much conscious about her looks and weight. As her weight increase she starts loosing sanity . She feels depressed .
The book gives us a inside view of publication house . The struggle of bloggers also well reflected here. But the story is predictable enough and finished hurriedly.
Tejas ‘s unstable decisions about “ whom to date “ has made the story insipid.
It would be more logical if Aisha has consulted a Psychologist instead of visiting doctor only to control her diet.
I want to give this book 3/5 ⭐️
The men are the strangest creatures . They harm themselves, other animals and the planet they are living in . They are obsessed with themselves only. Egotism over everything.
Stories of Us by Bobby Sachdeva is a collection of 41 short stories. Each story starts with illustrations related to the story and end with a question which will make you think about the problems from the chapter.
The stories here are a reflection of everything happens around us. Matters like corrupted society, financial turmoil, supressing of desire – more or less everything. This book is our corrupted society’s mirror .
The writing of the author is lucid and perfect for beginners. Though I personally think some stories are wrapped up in a hurry. But there are some stories, such as Sharpshooter,Nirvana which make you astonished
