Book Review- ChakravyuhI was greeted with some family drama and corporate stuff but was not impressed with the storyline, at the beginning, itself. Although I quite liked the way he expressed his thoughts, the excitement a good book should draw in the very beginning was missing.There are some events which one would like to read either from the first person or second person, but here the events unwrapped through third person's perspective. That part of the story didn't make much impact as it could make through first or second person's perspective.Such as the incident of Nikki and Varun!His observations on day-to-day episodes that he had inculcated to be a part of this book don't go with the flow of the story. There are some usual kinds of stuff he talked about, which we encounter in most of the stories. Thus, the content didn't sound appealing to me. The only hope I had in the journey was the Chakravyuh they are going to face. Tomy surprise, story-line ended on a good account, but what completely lacked is the participation of interesting and engaging events. It seemed like the incidents were written without much of a though, just the normal stuff anyone can think about. Especially, the conversation that takes part. Fine with the regular events, but he could have done more brainstorming while presenting the story before readers.Even if a writer is blessed with a good storyline and a soothing writing style, one thing I found lacking in most of the work I see these days is the participation of healthy events. Writers are unsure as to what to share with the readers. What could go well with the story, and what could make the journey an effortless ride, is a must thing to work on. Even broken incidents start to make sense when they are interesting. But, in this case, incidents are not fruitful enough to serve a flavourful story to the readers. In addition to that, There are some minor typos here and there like some missing letters, replacement of him with her which could be avoided.All I would like to say is, there are plenty of books in the market. If the reader spends his time, money and effort, he would expect the same from the work of the author. Jitendra definitely has a good plot with him, and he could do much more with this, all he needs to work upon is how to strategize healthy events.Rating: 2/5Reviewer: Shweta Kesari
One of the most important but not enough spoken about element of life is fear. Have you ever thought about things that you do or the plans that you make and why do you do that? If you dig deep into the same you will find that most of the decisions and the actions of an individual are driven by fear. Consciously or sub consciously it is the single biggest element which in turn is controlling your life.Why is God so popular? Even after hundreds of years of evolution of mankind people still bow down to the almighty mainly out of fear that their bad times would start anytime and he is their only hope. Whether God exists or should we pray or not is completely a separate discussion.Why is money so important?I have seen people living happily with as low as a Rs 5,000 as family income and even with no income, and some are even unhappy with even lakhs of it, there are plenty still in the fears of job losses and business failures.People tell me that fear is good, it keeps them on their toes. Well I agree with them as long as it does not control them. As long as you control your fears you are living, if fears control you it ruins your life. Hence it is important to know your fears and whether it is playing any role in your decisions of life if yes you need to find a way through it to overcome it and live your life.Managing FEAR: I am fearless, there is nothing called fear in my life. My first reaction to statements like these is that the person is lying. We all have our fears and it cannot go anywhere and it never will the best you can do is be aware of it and don’t let it command you. Getting over our fears are our biggest challenges, sometimes life poses you with situations where you have to encounter with your fears to survive sometimes it’s just a matter of small decisions. Whether big or small but the quality of your life and work would be determined by your ability to manage your fears.Read about Arjun Sud battle his fears and battle the Tribals to protect his family in the mysterious book CHAKRAVYUH.
