[Book Review] She: Ekla Cholo Re by Santosh Avvannavar and Dr. Shayan Haq

 "You are what you choose to be" - She: Ekla Cholo Re

Who knows what life preserves for us? A pocket novel about a story of a Lonely Heart, Kusum from Kolkata in the 90's. Living in a hypocritical society which has many loops that we need to fill up, remind us, living in the Stone Age. Shame to such society where biological instincts criticized as sin.

Do not judge a book with it's no. of pages. Writers, Santosh Avvannavar, and Dr. Shayan Haq both worked hard to give a shape to the story. Carefully written, simple language and thought provoking. Read the book within few minutes but it whelms me to think about the plot again and again. Broke me, what a person will do in a realistic situation alike?

The unspeakable truth that twisted our mind for the centuries. Will India change? Will our society justify things logical rather blinded by old faiths? We are a new generation and if we don't start making changes perhaps the society will never stop its snail walk.

I suggest, buy and read the book. It worth reading new thoughts to grow up with.

Always love!
