Why So Twisted


Book : Why So Twisted?: It’s Not Always About The First Impressions!
Author : Vinayak Nadakarni
Pages : 160
Price : 175/-
Publication : Notion Press

Short stories that cover all emotions !!

Since last year, I am getting a hang of reading short stories. And because of authors like Vinayak Nadkarni I appreciate them, as they say a LOT in just short.
This book consists of 12 short stories, each different from other one and leaves you in a different state of mind and feelings.
The author has made sure, that the language is lucid and easy to understand. But the stories are added with a different twist every time. There are suspense or twist added to most of the stories, and I loved enjoying this as a thriller or major suspense comes out in that end. The narration is simple yet it has the effect to keep the reader on edge till the end comes.

The cover is unique, and it intrigued me that those unique elements will be used in the stories. Some stories had those unique elements that the cover is made of, alas some were missing. I wished if everything the cover had been in the book.

My Favorites

I liked quiet a few stories, Flirting which was author’s first story and was published in 2012 by Penguin India.
Another favorite is A Repechage Love story which shows how people can go to extend for loving someone *loving first love*
Diwali bonus, takes you in mind of people of a family when a bonus comes.

The Results, gave me goosebumps. The story of every student, who has to go under pressure of performing good in exams. Made me cry.

My most favorite is A Second Date, it kept me wishing a happy ending to this, be a happy end. It’s story about two people who get arranged for a marriage, but instead they play an interesting game and let the fate decide the end.

Final Note :

If you are looking for a short read, or want to get out of reading slump this one is perfect. As this is fast paced, and have many emotions with each story. Go Grab It, if you don’t like reading short stories, this one can be the first one you will love.

Book Review: Unns – The Captivation


Book- UNNS: The Captivation
Author- Sapan Saxena
Genre- Fiction (Romance/Thriller)
Publisher- Inspire India Publishers

Paperback Prince – 189/-
Pages- 244

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…

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..


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’..!!


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…

Relationship Status: Committed…to My Silence….

Silence between two unknown people makes a relation..
Silence between two know people breaks a relation..


I totally believe in that Quote… And then also I still go with Second choice…
To keep myself in the Solitude of MY SILENCE

Because, sometimes…
It’s hard to explain only in words…
Because, sometimes…
Words can’t express what we feel deep inside…
Because, sometimes…
Deep inside we are dying, but seeing the person happy with other… Makes us Happy…
Because, sometimes..
Our not the only thing we should strive for..
Because, sometimes..
We just need to keep things within Us..

Times where I have been Silent... and Silent is still what I get, remembering those moments..

  • My Grandparents…had a Great life… and they left… I wasn’t there, at their last moments..

I wasn’t able to give my regards…for everything they taught me…
I wasn’t able to show my love…for everything they did to raise me..
Here I stand in their thoughts.. But all I am is… SILENT….

  • The one whom I loved (still do).. 🙂 .. he gave me reason to SMILE more..

He is the reason.. I am ‘smilempsn’..
He is the reason.. I understood what loving someone can make you..
He is the reason.. I believe, that Love can happen to anyone..anywhere..
He got married…have an angel baby girl… We don’t talk now..
And Here again I stand with all his memories filled in me… But all I am is SILENT…
I wish I had the courage to , tell him what I felt.. But all I did was.. I was SILENT… and I still am…. 🙂

  • My close friends.. not just 1..2..3.. but many…

Became unknown… left me for places they would be better in…
Just because, I wasn’t able to say them…. ‘Don’t Go… Stay here, with Me…’
Just because, I wasn’t able to say them…. ‘You Me…’
Just because, I wasn’t able to tell them…. How much they mean to Me…
Just because, all I was SILENT.. when they left me…


One of my friends quoted me so well…

You talk too much.. But you say very less

I don’t know, that’s his line.. or Quoted from somewhere else…
But I totally agree to it… I talk sooo much…. but when I need to say something.. I just can’t…

I can’t say… that I will Miss you, to a person saying me goodbye..
I can’t say… that I love you, to a person whom I love most..
I can’t say… that because of you I am what I am, to my Parents..Grandparent..Because I think that’s obvious..
I can’t say… No to things.. I don’t like..
I can’t say… Yes… immediately… to think I want..
I can’t say…
I can’t share…
And I can’t stop feeling…

All this is inside me.. Somewhere.. Trying to opening up…
But all I hear is SILENCE outside….

For You – My Legacy – My Care & My Love ^_^

Daily Prompt.. surely Prompt bloggers like me to think OUT OF THE BOX…
Here is another Amazing Prompt… Don’t You Forget About Me

It just doesn’t let you thik about yesterday…today..this moment..tommorrow… but a far away moment i.e. after you are gone.

To leave a Legacy… for anyone if I could…..



I would leave my Love..Care and Blessing for them…


I am just 29 yrs old.. and since I have understood myself, I have taken a lot of Care for my friends and my family…

My College friends call me our Groups “Mommy“.. They say, I take too much care of them.
My Roommates call me “Mother Teresa“.. As I give too much… Too much of my time… my thoughts…fun filled memories… anything.. I have, I give them 🙂

Even thought they get frustrate by that CARE sometimes. Still my care for the doesn’t change.

E.g. For being called my Group’s Mommy…
There are many instances when they consider me as Mommy… Like, we have attended some late eve lecture/practical. I made sure, that everyone give missed call or message after they reach home. And it was just not applied to girls but guys too in our Group 🙂

I have two little twins sisters… I call them my heartbeat… Even though my Maa always have taken care of us Sisters so well.. Still I have this affection and care towards my sisters… That sometimes, I even tell my Maa to take more care of my baccha’s (my sisters) ..

I hurt so many people by sometimes I talk… or take extra special care… Because they are Grown up, and don’t need to be taken care of…
Even though I get hurt in return… I still CARE for them…


Well If I leave this world.. I would love to leave my never ending Care .. and Love to my dear and near ones..
So that they are always protected from all the bad things.. and Godji always bless them with more

Thanks a lot to Daily Prompt, for giving me a thought for what I have never thought 🙂

Be Blessed…

-smilmpsn 🙂 🙂 ..
