Book Review: Second Chance by Sandeep Jatwa

Shekhar Kapoor is a successful businessman who has never done a decent thing in his entire life. For him, it is all about what he can get and how fast he can get it. He goes through life cheating and insulting people, even after he receives a mysterious telephone call from what is called the City of Justice.
Ignoring the cryptic warnings, Shekhar continues to live his life as he pleases, until one day, shortly after insulting a beggar in the street, Shekhar crashes his car and is killed.
And it is only when he is standing before the Bookkeeper, and being shown where his life had gone wrong, that Shekhar finally understands what life is all about.
But is it too late for him? Can he be given another chance, undo all the wrongs he has done? Or is there a chance that Shekhar Kapoor can find redemption where there had previously been no hope?

About the Book:
Someone rightly said, “What goes around, comes around,” and in the debut book ‘Second Chance’ written by Dr Sandeep Jatwa, he narrates the effects of karma and how our deeds on earth can determine our rewards and punishment afterlife, more like “as you sow, so shall you reap.”
The novel is about a man named Shekhar Kapoor, a rich, spoilt, obnoxious, selfish businessman, who has never done a decent thing in his life and is later made to pay for all his misdeeds. He is rude to the core, and he cares less for anyone who is below him. As I read the book, I couldn’t imagine how a person could be so heartless to not even spare his own father: a paralyzed old man on his deathbed, blaming him for the reason behind his mother's death. 
And, because of his rude nature, he begins receiving warnings from a voice, which he thought was either a dream or his own illusion. Shekhar continues to treat everyone like trash in spite of all the warnings he was receiving until the last call of caution came and took his life. He met with an accident and is taken into a fantasy-like world known as the ‘City of Justice,’ he goes through the similar phase of what sounds like a ‘judgment day.’ His wrong actions were read out and the verdict for his punishments are pronounced based on his misdemeanours. Shekhar was unable to believe that he was already dead, nor could he imagine that a rich man like him will have to go through the stage of death and punishment. What will happen to him once his penalty is decided? Will he go through the same pang just like the way others felt because of him? Will he feel guilty enough to ask for a second chance? Will he be given a second chance? I am not going to elucidate the detail as I don’t want to be a book spoiler. You should find the answer in this mind gripping book ‘Second Chance' written by Sandeep Jatwa. In the meantime, you can read my take on the book...

My Take on the Book:
As a firm believer in karma, I felt that the book spoke volume of how there is no rich or poor when it comes to the consequence of judgment once we are dead, You will be punished and rewarded based on the life you lead.  Shekhar thought he could escape from the harsh reality of mortal with his richness and power, but it is impossible when life and death are in the hands of God. Like everyone else, his rude and heartless behaviour made him pay for his deeds at the end. The book reveals the spiritual way of treating people with love and showing respect to everyone since you are likely to be judged once you die. One should not demote others just because he/she is inferior to you.
This is an exceptional book with a mix of spiritual message and a hint of a mystical theme. It is well written and the author has narrated the story with its gripping plotline and intriguing interpretation. However, I felt he could have written better than this, also the cover of the book could have been more appealing.
Overall, it is a light read for anyone who wishes to know more about karma and its effects, and anyone who believes in doing good while they can.
Grab a copy today and see if one should get a second chance, and if so how will one change and make it better? Because not everyone gets a second chance or maybe not everyone deserves one. Do they?

Ahaglow Face Wash Review

Tried and Tested! For the past two months, I went through a very bad acne outburst phase. And when I say bad, it means BAD. So, with my knack for researching, I googled trying to find a cure or maybe at least some home remedies to treat my acne. But, a multiple trial and error and I gave up.  We know how pimple popping is more than just satisfying, hence the 'habit' left me with very bad scares on my forehead and chin, also I noticed more acne than I had in the first place.  Finally, a visit to my dermatologists came to my rescue. She prescribed  some medication i.e. face wash (I am coming to this), some anti-acne ointments, and a few capsules to take.  Obviously, I had to religiously follow the skin routine treatment, but in the hour of everything, there was this thing which I discovered… it was the face wash (Yep, the point of this blog, TBH) which I can give the entire credit to. AKA presenting to you my fountain of youth in a face wash (I am exaggerating a lil bit.) Ahaglow.…

Book Review: Pyjamas are Forgiving by Twinkle Khanna

Blurb: There sitting on that porch, that light-eyed man, a pitta like me, was my ex-husband and that woman whose inner element I was unaware of unless bitch is accepted as an undiscovered fourth dosha, was his young wife. In the serene sanctuary of Kerala’s Shanthamaaya spa where food is rationed, sex is forbidden and emotions cantered, Anshu meets someone familiar and deeply unsettling – her ex-husband. Bittersweet, funny and wise, Pyjamas Are Forgiving confirms Twinkle Khanna as one of our great storytellers.

Dolce and Gabbana 'Dolce Floral Drops' Review

“Dolce Floral Drops is fresh and light, yet as precious as a morning caress.” – Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

For those who know me, would tell you how much I lovehoardingcollecting perfumes. And for those who doesn't, now you do.

Today I will be reviewing a perfume from one of my favourite brands, Dolce and Gabbana ‘Dolce Floral Drops Eau de Toilette.’  I am very particular when it comes to choosing a perfume. I go for mild and delicate or say ‘not so strong’ kind of smell. This time, the pretty Dolce Floral drops caught my attention and I had to give it a try.

The scent is light and fresh with a twist of sweet yet dewy and soothing texture. Going by my preference, I love fragrances which are feminine and sweet, yet a spray and it should stay for long. D&G Floral drops comes in a thick glass, curved lines, and solid bottom, the cap is sculpted in the shape ofa white flower with petals, the bottle is a frosted glass which gives it a misty green colour.
Subtle with a hint of fr…
