Book Reviews

“This is a gripping intriguing story. Author beautifully paints a soft delicate romance within the framework of ‘Indian Values’. She successfully brings out the character of a smart well-educated yet gullible young girl. The suspense in the story wants you to continue reading without skipping the pages. The story unfolds in front of your eyes like a Bollywood movie, with romance, suspense and even the quintessential songs (in the form of beautifully penned poems, though). Author’s restrained approach in depicting incidents based on true events makes it a ‘family book’, a must-read for adolescents, young adults and not-so-young adults as well!”–Amazon reader.

“A page turner that I could not close after starting. I felt the author’s emotions - love, hurt, anger, acceptance. Mostly, I have a richer understanding of Indian culture around marriage. A great first book!”–Amazon reader.

“Wow, this book has a gripping plot and storyline. And surprisingly the suspenseful tale is based on actual events! I loved the romance and suspense, but most importantly, I cherished learning about Indian culture through the author's eyes. Her poetry is unique and adds moments of reflection. Give this book a try if you want a fast yet satisfying read.”–Goodreads reader.

“Prodigal Love has been an eye opener for me. The author has simply conveyed deep emotions in this unique tale of love. A must read for all young people!!”–Goodreads reader.

Poem 1 (COVID-19):

Jaane kahan gaye woh din,
Jab hum kahin bhi, jaya karte the!
Jab hum kahin bhi, khaya karte the!!
Yaaron ko gale, lagaya karte the!
Milkar khushi, manaya karte the!!

Doston ke saath bahar jaana, saath milkar gungunana, maza tha zindagi ka!
Office jaana, gym jaana, niyam tha, har din ka!!

Ghar mein rehte rehte ab, thak gaye hain!
Logon se door bhaagte bhaagte, pak gaye hain!!
Zoom call se, chak gaye hain!
Saaman saaf karte karte, piss gaye hain!!
Haathon ki halat hai ab shushk!
Dhote dhote ho gaye hai khushk!!

Corona ne kiya hai tang sabko!
Garmi mein mask pehne par, kiya hai majboor humko!!

Ab himmat, bolne lagi hai!
Mann mein udaasi, aane lagi hai!!
Jahan bhi dekho, nirasha hai!
Kahin kahin hi, aasha hai!!
Log hasna, bhool gaye hai!
Milna julna, bhool gaye hain!!

Ab dua hai humari rab se!
Kar de koi chamatkar jaldi se!!

Khata hui, jo prakriti ka dhayaan na rakha!
Khata hui, jo insaniyat ko na samjha!!

Lauta de humari, zindagi humko!
Niraash na kareinge, ab tumko!!

Jane kab wapas, aayeinge woh din!
Jane kab hogi jeevan mein, phir se palchin!!

Poem 2 (Romantic):

Socha na tha kabhi zindagi mein, aisa pal bhi aayega!
Tum sa koi humsafar, yoon dastak de kar jaayega!!
Humne to chod hi diya tha, muskurana, sapne sajana!
Tum aaye toh yaad aaya, tahake lagana, gungunana!!
Kante bhare the jo zindagi mein, chun liye tumne saare!
Phoolon ki sej liye, pass aaye tum humare!!
Gam ke aasoon, jo hum dabaya karte the!
Sach kahein, woh mann hi mann, humein bahut rulaya karte the!!

Aaj seekha hai humne tumse, zindagi ko jeena!
Kuch apna sa lagta hai, kartik ka yeh maheena!!
Tumne hai jaana bahut humein, jo koi na jaan paya tha!
Tumhari baahon mein aa kar, humara dil teji se dhadkaya tha!!
Tumhe soch kar hum, mann hi mann muskuratein hain!
Baatein tumhari, bus yaad kiye jaate hain!!
Khuwaab jo lauta diye hain, tumne humare!
Poore kareinge sab, saath reh kar tumhare!!
Yakeen nahin hota humein, apni kismat par!
Dar lagta hai ki kahin kho na dein sab, aage chal kar!!

Hum bhi ab jeene ki tamana rakhte hain!
Par kya karein, bure khayal pareshan kiya karte hain!!
Ab bus ek vaada hum, tumse chahte hain!
Ki zindagi hum, tumhare saath jeena chahte hain!!
Ruswa na karna ae zindagi, humein tum!
Dard sehte sehte kahin hum, ho na jayein gum!!
Aasoon jo bahe ab, tham na payeinge!
Zindagi mein phir kabhi hum, muskura na payeinge!!

Poem 3 (Romantic):

Aaj kal zindagi, bahut haseen lagti hai!
Dil mein bus, tumhari hi yaad basti hai!!
Hum itne khush hain, ki kya bataein!
Pyar karte hain kitna tumse, kaise dikhlaein!!
Aaisa pehle, kabhi na hua tha!
Kisi ne itna na, is dil ko chua tha!!
Humne tumsa pyar karne wala, kahin na dekha!
Sochte hain har roz, ki kahin koi, sapna to nahin dekha!!
Apne haathon ki lakeeron par, yakeen nahin hota!
Kambakhat yeh faasla ab, bardasht nahin hota!!
Sach, tum jaisa pyar humse kabhi koi na karta!
Koi aur to humari, zindagi ki soch se hi darta!!
Jaan ho tum humari!
Baatein karte ho kitni saari!!
Ab le jaao humein tum, apni dulhan banakar!
Jeena chaheinge baaki zindagi, tumhare hi ghar jaaker!!
Bus jaan, ab der na karna, pagal ho jaayeinge hum warna!
Ab chahtein hain tumhare hi saath rahna, ladna aur pyar karna!!

Poem 4 (Romantic):

Zindagi mein aae humsafar, tera saath na chhodeinge!
Maut bhi aa jaaye, to bhi tujhse na mooh modeinge!!
Bedard hai yeh duniya, to kya!
Kismat abhi, khafa hai to kya!!
Kabhi toh humare sitare bhi, jag magaeinge!
Phool ki tarah, hum bhi muskurainge!!
Aae meri jaan, tu ghabara mat!
Yeh bure pal bhi, ho jayeinge cut!!
Bus yaad rakh, koi humein juda kar nahin paayega!
Kal hi yeh zamana humein, ek dooje se milvayega!!

Poem 5 (Sad):

Zindagi kya kya rang, dikhlati hai!
Kabhi Khushi to kabhi gum, de jaati hai!!
Hum khush the, tumhe paake!
Jee rahe the, sundar sapne saja ke!!
Gum ka Mausam, aisa aaya!
Waqt bhi na usko, bhar paya!!
Rote hain, chup chup kar roz!
Par rakhte hain sabke samne, poora josh!!
Humara dard, koi na samajh paya!
Koi bhi aasoon, pochne na aaya!!
Maloom na tha humko, hai kismat itni buri!
Choti si fariyaad bhi na, ho sakti hai poori!!
Ab tak the tumhare, saath khade!
Har mushkil, har takleef, se lade!!
Ab kuch karne ka, mann nahin karta!
Kisi ke saath reh kar bhi, waqt nahin kat ta!!
Toot gaye hain, sapne saare!
Waqt ne diye, aise fatkare!!
Ab aur sahan, nahin hota!
Kya waqt ko hum par, zara bhi reham nahin hota?
Aur kitne dukh hum, seh paayeinge!
Kabhi na kabhi to khatam, ho hi jaayeinge!!
Jab khatam honge, ae khuda hum!
Humare pyar ko, karna na kam!!
Usi ke sahare, mar paayeinge!
Warna hum, kahan jaayeinge!!

Poem 6 (Sad):

Kab aayeinge, woh din!
Kab hogi, jeevan mein palchin!!
Koi bhi pal na, aaj suhaye!
Koi bhi hal na, nazar aaye!!
Dekhe the jo sapne, pyare!
Toot gaye ek ek kar, saare!!
Socha na tha, aisa hoga!
Aaj har koi hum par, hasta hoga!!
Chaha tha sabse, aage badna!
Mehnat kar, apni kismat badalna!!
Pyar bhi humko, raas na aaya!
Jeevan mein kitna, waqt gawaya!!
Duniya bole, svaarthee humko!
Koi nahin jo, samjhe humko!!
Svaarthee nahin, alag hain hum!
Samajhauta nahin, kar sakte hum!!
Soch alag hai, apni sabse!
Par pyar to phir bhi, karte hain sabse!!
Svaarthee hote to, mar jaate!
Ya fir kisi sang, bhag jaate!!
Kiya nahin kuch aisa, humne!
Jaante hain, apno ke sapne!!
Hai apna bhi, ek hi sapna!
Ho ek chota sa, ghar apna!!
Sang rahe, pyar humara!
Haste khelte, ho jaaye guzara!!
Aage kya hoga, rab hi jaane!
Kabhi to honge, din suhane!!
Jaane kab aayeinge, woh din!
Kab hogi, jeevan mein palchin!!

Poem 7 (Zindagi):

Zindagi kitne ajeeb, pal dekhati hai!
Kabhi khushi to kabhi gum, de jaati hai!!
Hum jo sochein, hota nahin!
Fir bhi hamko koi, gila nahin!!
Himmat karke, badna hai humko!
Sapno ko poora, karna hai humko!!
Koi na samjhe, kya chahein hum!
Dil se jeena, chahein hum!!
Humko bhi huq hai, khush rehne ka!
Jeevan mein sab, haasil karne ka!!
Kuch to karke, dikhayeinge hum!
Warna ghut ke, mar jaeinge hum!!
Duniya ne jo, niyam banaye!
Kaise koi inmein, khush reh paaye!!
Khushi nahin to, jeena kyun!
Bin sapno ke, rehna kyun!!
Poochein hum, duniya se aaj!
Kya nahin unko koi, kaam kaaj?
Kyun dete hain, dakhal zindagi mein?
Kya nahin hain, unke koi sapne?
Ek hi zindagi, mili hai humko!
Apni tarah se, jeeinge hain hum!!
Kisi ki dada giri, nahin saheinge hum!!!

Poem 1 (COVID-19):

For those days I pine,
Anywhere we were free to go!
Anywhere to dine!!
Hugging the friends, having fun, made our life divine!!!

Outings with peers, humming songs, gave us delight!
Going to office, working out in the Gym, were part of life!!

Staying at home, social distancing, have made our life dreary!
Zoom calls make us teary!!
Sanitizing each damn thing, make us weary!
Washing hands over and over has made them shrivel!

Corona has turned our lives into hell!
Wearing mask in hot weather, we are compelled!!

Feeling despondent and depressed!
Despair and gloom are now our integral part!!
Fun and frolic are things of past!!!

Human values we neglected!
Nature we exploited!!

We regret our mistakes!
Beseech God to show his grace!!
Full of laughter and joy, restore those days!!!











Poem 2 (Romantic):

Unimaginable! Your love knocked my heart!
When, from me, smile and dreams were miles apart!!
With you, chortle and laughter again set foot in my life!
Thorns of pain, you picked from my life!!
You removed the pall of gloom that would make me cry!
With blooms of bliss and joy, you enriched my life!!

How to live life, you have taught me!
You appreciated, when no one understood me!!
My heart beats fast in your loving embrace!
With you, each moment becomes a grace!!
My heart beams with a smile, musing of you!
O’ love, my lost dreams will come true with you!!
Am I so lucky? Comes the doubt!
Scared to lose, everything out!!

I long to live now, but ill thoughts trouble me!
Living together till eternity, will you promise me?
Desert me not, O’ my dear!
Pangs of separation, so hard to bear!!
Will bereft me of my smiles!
With an ocean of tears, shedding from my eyes!!






Poem 3 (Romantic):

With you in my heart, life is fully fascinating!
Ecstasy of love amazingly boundless!!
Do not know how to express!!!
Never happened before, your love enthralls me!
Is it a dream? Daily this thought appalls me!!
My destiny, I trust not!
Being away from you, Shall I bear not!!
Peerless is your love for me!
My notions on life make others wary of me!!
O’ my heartthrob! Your tête-à-tête regales me!
As your bride, when will you take me?
With you, I yearn to live, love, and quibble!
Tarry not my dear!!
Mad in love, shall I wriggle!!!




Poem 4 (Romantic):

O’ my sweetheart, I will never abandon you!
Even death cannot split me from you!!
If the world is insensitive, so what!
If luck is not in our favor, so what!!
The time will come, with happiness our life will gleam!
With smiles, our faces will beam!!
Don’t lose heart, O’ my dear!
These awful days, will also disappear!!
No one can break us up, keep this in mind!
Soon this world will help us to be conjoined!!

Poem 5 (Sad):

So unpredictable is our life!
Blend of sorrow and delight!!
So happy was I with you!
Weaved an enchanting dream-world with you!!
Now gloominess I see everywhere!
Cannot find solace anywhere!!
I keep on crying furtively!
Facing the word bravely!!
My pain, no one realizes!
My tears, no one wipes!!
I am so unlucky; I knew not!
Even a small wish, being answered not!!
Through thick and thin I stood by you!
Faced all challenges holding hands with you!!
For any activity, I lost the fervor now!
Time drags, even with well-wishers now!!
All my dreams stand shattered!
Time got my happiness plundered!!
So many hardships I cannot face!
Will time ever show me some grace?
Is there any end to these miseries of life!
Or they will bring a termination of my life?
O’ my Lord, abate not my love when I die!
Only then my troubled soul will get respite!!


Poem 6 (Sad):

When will the happiness knock my door?
Nothing gives me joy anymore!!
No way out from this miserable plight!
All my dreams got vaporized!!
Never expected this would happen to me!
Everybody must be laughing at me!!
To surpass all, was what I longed for!
To work hard and change my destiny, was what I yearned for!!
Even love did not work for me!
So much time wasted by me!!
‘Vain and selfish,’ are the names given to me!
No one bothered to understand me!!
Uncompromising, with view point different!
I love all and am not self-indulgent!!
Had I been self-centered!
I would have eloped or died!!
Nothing of the sort was done by me!
I know what others expect from me!!
I also dreamed of a small nest!
Brimming with love and enjoyment!!
O’ my Lord! What is in store for us?
When shall be my life full of blessedness!!








Poem 7 (Life):

Blend of joy and sorrow!
How strange is our life!!
Not getting what we long for!
Without any whimper, accept the life!!
My feelings no one appreciates!
I yearn to move forward with audacity!!
Fulfilling dreams, living life with vivacity!!!
I also deserve to be happy!
To get all that I fancy!!
I have to prove my worth!
Or I will be shifted to death!!
Harsh mores, grab our happiness!
How to live with no dreams, no merriness!!
People, meddling in others’ affairs, make me wonder!
Either they are idle or shiftless!!
We have only one life!
Living on our terms is our right!!
Cannot allow anyone to infringe upon our lives!!!
