Book Review: A drop of You by Krishna Chhetri


About the Book
We become overtly colourless when our hearts aren't together; only when a soul finds its body, they sing and dance together to the colours of life.
Three closely knit people, Karma, Diana & Ghazal meet at the crossroads of life, unaware of the cosmic conspiracy and its comical destiny. Heart is their road, love is their journey and the soul, the final destination. Sailing on the tides of emotions, they encounter deceit, with a tinge of poison and drop of bliss.
 Forever love; it is a myth? Or a reality? Is it stifling pain or undying love, that makes love eternal? Come, let us explore!

My Take on the book
For someone who loves poetry, this book is a refreshing read. A drop of you is the debut book by Krishna Chhetri, the book narrates the story of three friends, Karma, Diana, and Ghazal, who are caught in a love triangle situation. This is a tale of love,  friendship, destiny, and heartbreak.  Like every love triangle, three friends find themselves in a situation they can't avoid…. Diana and Karma are childhood friends, and later Ghazel enters their life and it takes a complicated turn. Diana loves Karma, Karma loves Ghazal, and so on.
Karma, the male protagonist falls in love with Ghazal at first sight and tries to make her fall for him with his romantic poems. Diana, on the other hand, is waiting for a time to confess her love to him. However, in the midst of the situation, a slight misunderstanding changes everything. 
One interesting thing about this book is, it is written in a unique mixture of poetry and prose format where readers are introduced to poetry followed by the story in each chapter. The author has penned down the poetry in the most philosophical way, and since I love poetry book, it was indeed a pleasurable read for me. However, towards the middle chapters, I found the story a little stretched and monotonous. 
if you are into cheesy, romantic read, then this book is just right for you.
You may pick this book if you are looking for a romantic/light read. 
Overall, apart from the typical love triangle plot line, I thoroughly enjoyed the poems, and some of them were really well versed and beautifully written.
Pick up a copy today to find out the story of three different people caught up in a similar situation. Will Karma win his love over his lady love? How will Ghazal react to this change? Will Diana accept her fate? Find out in the book.

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: Can a Girl and a Boy be Just Friends?

“He knows everything about her, right from her favorite books to her favorite bra. She knows everything about him, right from his favorite soccer club to his favorite x rated websites. He will complete her English homework, even at three in the night. She will arrange an Armani suit for him, even if it calls for flirting with ugly guys. He has her picture in his wallet. She has his number on speed dial. They talk to each other all the time. They talk about each other when they don't talk to each other. They discuss everything from periods to PlayStation. They have tasted alcohol and then thrown up...together. They have bunked countless tuitions... together. They can’t live without each other. YET they don't love each other. They are JUST FRIENDS...”
Can they be just friends? I mean a Boy and a Girl? This is a universal quest everyone is trying to find seek. Some say they can, while the rest says it's not possible. I am asking you this because the title of the book I will be re…

Killing Time in Delhi by Ravi Shankar Etteth: Book Review

About the Book Bon vivant Charlie Seth, a privileged denizen of Lutyens’ Delhi, leads a life of idle luxury fuelled by money, drugs, sex, and parties. A cocaine overdose kills his ditzy girlfriend, thrusting him into a maelstrom of conspiracy, murder, blackmail, and promiscuity. As the world of Crazy Rich Punjabis unravels, Charlie’s future is suddenly at the mercy of an enigmatic woman, an unscrupulous swami, a society-obsessed policeman, a slippery drug pusher and a disloyal valet. The only person who can help him is his missing aunt. Holed up in the country palace that his grandfather had won in a game of cards from a raja on Diwali, Charlie plots his revenge. Killing Time in Delhi is a brutally funny look into the shenanigans of Delhi’s ultrarich who live in the fast lane and are high on hypocrisy, borrowed money, and dubious deals.
My Take on the Book You may be wondering, 'if the title of the book is really about 'Killing Time in Delhi?' then,  yes, it is. Also, it is ab…
