Description of "My Life - Story"

Synopsis:

My Life-Story is the story of Kavya who believes in living each day as it comes. As she narrates her story we realize how her carefree nature extinguishes in the storms of her life and how she finally learns to take her own decisions. Leaving her house to marry the man of her choice and beginning life anew, she finally finds herself standing face to face with her family during a critical situation. What happens then plays a major role in shaping her life. During the course of this journey, she meets Shantanu, who has a positive influence on her life. How she copes with the challenges of her life and how she struggles to find her lost individuality is the center-point of this story!
The story also lays emphasis on how her love for her husband blinds her and forces her to undergo emotional turmoil till finally she decides to fight back.
What role does Shantanu play in her life? What happens in her life that almost brings her to the stage of losing her sanity? Does she succeed in coming out of all these? Does she turn out to be a survivor? Read along as Kavya tells us her story …

Teaser:

There are a few relationships, which are indefinable; not because they are not worth it, rather because they do not fit in any charter - they are beyond definitions. A few people simply call these relationships as friendships but most look at it with a disgusted look. My relationship with Shantanu was one such non-definable affair. A nameless companionship! We were not lovers but then we were not mere friends either. There was something special that we shared; something that was beyond flesh, beyond all the material things. Perhaps neither could understand it ever.

Today, as I look back at those days of my life I ask myself a question, would I have married Shantanu had I been given the chance? The answer comes almost immediately – NO. Though I am a mother to his daughter, he was never the man I was looking for as a partner. I could never ever imagine sharing a bed with him. He was the best thing to happen to me, no doubt about that, but that was it. We were destined to meet and travel the journey of life together as two strangers who met along the way and would then go their ways at a later stage of the journey. Shantanu went his way to heaven, even before I got the chance to fall in love with him. I wonder whether I would have fallen in love with him, if he were alive. I cannot answer this question because I am not sure. After all that I went through in my life, I know one thing – life has its own ways and it is unpredictable.
Unlike this unanswered question of my life, one thing is clear – my decision to end my marriage of more than seven years was the right decision. A decision I could take because of Shantanu’s support.

Though the journey of my life started when I was born, my real life-story starts on the day when I first stepped into my sister’s engineering college to submit my admission form. From then on, I had no control as to whatever happened. It was as if I had been possessed! As I said earlier, I always believed in living each day as it came and so I just went on flowing with the tide, until finally I hit the shore. A few said I hit the wrong shore but I believe I finally reached the right shore after being tossed around by the storms of my life.

The first thing that strikes you about this book is its tag line, " I always believe in living each day at a time, until...." This cue is enough to set your mind running, wanting to devour this book at the next available moment to know until what? The opening passages also add up to the suspense element making you eagerly anticipate the next development in the story. There are a thousand questions running in your mind every moment as you are reading this book.Needless to say the narrative is very intriguing and gripping which is very essential in such stories.

The story is mainly about a girl Kavya who is full of life, on the threshold of youth, raring to go and explore what life has in store for her. It's about ;

Truth & Lies
Destiny & Luck
Hope & Shattered dreams
Hatred & Love
Fear & Strength
Birth & Death
Happy Marriage & Bitter breakups
Romance & Treachery
Commitment & Adultery

It highlights the extremes of the entire gamut of emotions you can associate with human relationships.This book re-emphasizes on the fact that life is very unpredictable. You never know what is going to happen the next moment. As you feel the central character Kavya's pain and agony through the words, you actually silently pray for her hoping for some miracle.

Like the author's blog's name suggests each and every word in this book seems to be straight from the heart as it hits you on your face and makes you come face to face with reality which otherwise we conveniently ignore though existent around us. I personally detest domestic violence a lot and avoid reading it altogether. But in this book Arti has very beautifully managed to not portray a picture of a hapless victim. Kavya, comes across as a strong person who knows how to deal with it and maintain her dignity at the same time. The author manages to explore various roles played by a woman in daily life - that of a daughter, wife, lover, sister, friend, confidante and a mother.

In our life all of us at some point have taken certain decisions in that high headed stage of giddy teenage years and royally repented it forever. This book is clearly a must read as it emphasizes "It's never too late to rectify your mistakes."

I am surely looking forward to more such books from the author Arti Honrao :)
