Unns- The Captivation,

As the name suggests it has actually kept me captivated while reading. At first, the story looked like a school romance, that will flourish as the time goes. But author Sapan Saxena had something else in mind. A story where two different religions meet has always attracted me to read more.

I love it when I learn new things while reading. And this book has definitely taught me “Seven stages of love”. Not only mentioned it in every chapter title, but same has gone through each page of the book.

1. Hub means the stage of Attraction.
2. Unns means the stage of Infatuation.
3. Ishq is when people actually fall in Love.
4. Aqeedat is stage of Reverence.
5. Ibadat is Worshipping of lover.
6. Junoon is the sixth stage of Obsession for your lover.
7. The final stage is Maut (death).

 
The book is very intelligently by the author has separated in 3 parts. And I am going to review each part differently.

The Beginning: what I love calling it as school romance, shows all of the things we as a schoolmate have seen our friends doing it or even we did it. Finding someone before we end the school is one of the certificates everyone think they deserve.
The three friends in starting gave me a look of Harry Potter, Ron Weasly & Hermoine Granger. And I knew, I am going to love this (HP things ALWAYS connect to potterheads)

The Middle: Well, I will be very true about this. If I hadn’t seen “Ek tha Tiger” movie, this part would have been my favorite. But glimpse of the movie was so much inevitable in this part.
What I loved the part in the garden where Atharva told Meher about her feeling again, just before he discussed his mission in Germany. Atharva’s feelings in Sapan’s words have been more than just words. It remains with me, even after I finished it.
“ALWAYS” my FAVORITE (what you expect from a potterhead 😛 )

The END: This part has definitely kept me tight on my toes. Thinking about, how she is now in love with him. How he still loves her. Thinking about their opportunities of being together.
But alas, once a betrayal always a betrayal..

Loved it, how the characters have aged really well. They were immature in the beginning, but as the time lapsed in book both the characters grewn strongly into what they are and what they want.

All in all, it was quite a good read, simple language with some grammatical errors & loopholes. Although, I am still in question with the things happened in Ode on Solitude..!!

Romance in the beginning,
Thriller in the middle,
& Mystery as it ends.

Friends..?? Who Me..?? **Forever**

Why Can’t We Be Friends?
Do you find it easy to make new friends? Tell us how you’ve mastered the art of befriending a new person.

And my answer to this Daily Prompt would be…

Image
Ask me how we met..
Ask me how we became friends..
Ask me how you became special part of me..

I won’t be able to answer any of that..
But I can only say, this is not the thing I am good at..

The art of making and being a friend,
Is unknown and unrevealed till the end..
Like road has its certain bend,
Friends can make out heart forever mend..

(c)smilempsn

And at the last I want to say one of my Favorite ^-^ 🙂

‘We’ll be Friends Forever, won’t we, Pooh?’ asked Piglet.
‘Even longer,’ Pooh answered

I read our old chats ‘AGAIN’..!!

Image

Well most of the time, it happens with me..
That at same time I am surrounded by many people at once..
And suddenly, there is no one around..

Not just once…twice..thrice… and it has happened to me 1000000th times may be..
Suddenly all the people I know, go..disappear..back off from me..
I don’t know the reason..

And so I very frequently go back…to the time, we were talking…chatting..having good time together..
All those moments are captured in the chats/pings/messages we exchanged…
All those times when I said you to sleep, and u said no..
All those times when I asked u , if u had your lunch/dinner.. and u said no..

All that we had is/was wonderful.. then where did it go suddenly..??
All that I said, was so true.. then why didn’t u got its meaning..??
All that I felt from u side was so pure.. then why didn’t we headed in the same direction..??

Why we are no more friends now..
Why don’t u call me now..
Why don’t u message me now..
Why don’t we chat now..
Why don’t I look forward for the day now,like I used to..

And the questions will be unanswered forever..

All I know now is, that people are meant to be lonely.. May be not today..just this moment, but someday..
I have been been with people and still feel alone for so long. That now, being with people means nothing to me I guess. But being alone surely HURTS a LOT..!!

Its hurts not to talk to someone u used to talk..
It hurts not to see them, like you used to..
It hurts that you are not center of there life anymore..

Because time change..
Circumstances change..
People change..
Fate change..
And moreover.. ‘Our TASTE Change’ …

And I just don’t like Changes..

I know people might like this post boring..or some might thing what a loser girl she is..
But believe me, I have been in this position now for a week.. Have written so much, still So much needs to be shared.
So thought of finally posting one of THE DAY’s of my life..
where I go back.. and read the CHATS with my friends…

 

Loneliness is a good feeling when it is created by Our self..

But it is the Worst feeling when it is gifted by others…

(wrote this bit of piece few days ago, was talking to my close friends and felt to write it…)

To the friends who are near and dear,
I want to make it so very clear…

All the flaws I have, don’t make it count,
All the sadness I gave you doesn’t have any account…

I had been mad since long now,
And I don’t want to correct it somehow…

I feel sorry… I feel sad for the words I speak,,
But sometimes my mind cannot control its wild streak…

I know I put u under pressure,
But that just my love’s gesture..

It’s easy to be alone rather being together,
As there is less heart broken pieces to gather…

(feel free to tell your views on this piece…or anything else if you wanna share 🙂 )
