REVIEW of - 'KAIVALYA - a fire within'

The story spans over a few hundred years offering variation in the context of time and actions that are relevant, then. There is love, hatred, greed, kindness, delusion, passion, moments and milestones. There are contrasting events happening throughout the story and this contrast keeps the narrative alive from different perspectives, from different characters and from different positions of power. It is about the journey between two extremes, Sufferings and Kaivalya.Kaivalya - A Fire Within, is about individuals and the society at large, where the individuals become bigger than the society to control it.

The title of the book is the Sanskrit word Kaivalya, which denotes non-duality. It literally means ‘only.’ The author defines it using the metaphor of waves & ocean. According to her, it’s the only truth—the only one.The subtitle is ‘A Fire Within.’ The phrase is often used to express the idea of desire or passion of an individual in the context of motivation for an act, but it could also be used to represent rage. You’ll get to see different aspects of fire in the book.

Kaivalya is a gripping novel with a very unique concept. Each of the 7 incarnations of Mansi are intriguing but related best with Munni. The pain that the character feels stays etched in me as a reader. The author evokes deep emotions ad she pens down her story. The plot begins to eventually become clearer as you read on and one realizes that the karmas are perfectly balanced. The karmic balance will have to be cleared and there is no escape. I even underlined many passages in this book which I would like to revisit. There is a lot for all readers in this book. Highly recommended.

THE PHOENIX MUST BURN TO EMERGEThe author EktaSaigalPandit takes you through a myriad of Emotions, Love, Hope, Loss, Heartbreak and Betrayal. The book reflects that the soul moves through different bodies until it ultimately purifies itself of Anger, Greed, Envy and Pride. Loved reading it and learnt about Karma and rebirth, which is explained well in the book.

Kaivalya is definitely a profound read. It is difficult to fight back when your opponent is headstrong, energetic and wilful. It is even tougher to fight back when he assaults you from multiple levels and you can fight against it from just one single plane. However, it is the toughest when the enemy is multifaceted and lives within you. It feels like a losing battle. It is exhausting and draining. Sometimes the helplessness and the feeling of being craftily trapped, takes over. EktaSaigalPandit has brought the conflict within Mansi to life and it is the main driving force of the story. The book is filled with wisdom which has been beautifully woven into the narrative. A must read for all drawn to the intangible!

गहना कर्मणो गतिः - ‘gahana karmano gatih’: Krishna in Bhagavad Gita has thus summed up the play-out of life of each individual – all linked up in the present, past, or future.To understand the complex and intricate cycle of the karmas in one life; earn the fruits thereof; select the ones out of the aggregate karmas for experiencing in the current life in order to learn the lessons and imbibe these for one’s further evolution; to figure out the attributions and retributions; is not the cup of tea for everyone.

REVIEW of - 'Let Go of Me...'

Let go of Me is a book written by Ekta Saigal Pandit which revolves around two main characters Asmi & Sagar who have lived their lives on two different extremes before they meet each other. The story is about two lives engulfed in different situations looking for true love and they find it in each other but that doesn't last for long. Unlike every other love story which has a happy ending, this story doesn't have one. One becomes matured even after losing the sense of true love while the other keeps longing for it and tries to prove the righteousness.

As the cover may indicate that it’s a story of a girl in her teenage or 20s, but it isn’t. In fact, the lead protagonist, the heroine of the novel, is a 38 years old woman, who has been married for 14 years and mother of two children. On the other hand, the hero is also a married man of 32 and father of one child.
