RAINBOW- The shades of love by Aman Jassal

By | September 26, 2014

       So what is love and Is love and sex the same thing. What is Lust and how is that a part of the growing teenagers life. How differently male and female brain works when it comes to LOVE and SEX. What can happen to you, incase you do not differentiate abetween the two. What is the justified end for a life dedicated and dictated by you know what. Rainbow is a story of a cluttered thoughts and a definitive end.

Unfortunately, RAINBOW seems like an early draft that has not been edited enough. Having  a good story to tell and telling a great story are two different sides. There is additional skills involved, which the author lacks. The book is ok in patches  but we all know that as a  reader we are seeking a complete experience.

SO WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT

111A stud of a dude; Yuvi is a great flirt and expert skirt chaser. He has been scoring at will and has been scoring since time immeorial. He  finally falls in love with Simran.  ( Yeh Toh Hona Hi Tha). She is hot, sensible and deeply in love with Yuvi. But remember our Yuvi is a casanova. In the period when his relationship with Simran continues to carry  a not-qualified-or-confirmed status, his life presents him with fresh opportunities. Expectidly he ends up hitting the sack with them. His trophies include Simran’s bindaas cousin and his boss’s lovely nymphomaniac seducing wife. Everything is still simple and he is managing to remain floating in a life and relationshi full of lies. There are forces that are cahllenging  and threatenning him to confess and start afresh. That would have killed story. So Yuvi holds it back for far too long. Simran finally gets to know of Yuvi’s other not-so-honest-loving side and that’s when hurricane hits Yuvi’s life.  What happens next is smething you should read in Rainbow.

MY COMMENTS

Credit Aman for being honest in creating far too real charcaters including the  PG sharing students including hormone high Yuvi, love sick Kulli, Satte ; his friend at office and yes the adoreable Simran.

The time when Yuvi is living through the emotional  conflict of loving Simran and continuing  scoring at every opportunity is an area that Aman fails to exploit.  misses out in exploiting fully. An area that could have helped elevated  the reading pleasure.

There is freshness of reading and that is due to ease and simplicity of language used. Unfortunately it is still fragmented episodes. The timelines and the differentiation between Patiala and Luthiana is also at times blurred. Aman does say that this is based on ‘Based on real life experiences and tea time gossips…’ add to that the fantasises and dreams.

Aman saves the best for the end and gives you an unexpected ending. Here again  there are too many unrelated non-contextual  monologues. I am surprised how Aman manages failing to  enhance this section which presents the golden opportunity with brutality of painful separation. Rainbow, with the same set of episodes edited well enough would have given a far better product.

In my honest view, it is possibly an interesting story that was waiting to be told. But it has been badly crafted  and is really tough to read it. I had recived this book from Aman Jassal with a smart quote ‘A good reader has the power to move the world’. Trust me Aman that replacing ‘Reader’ with ‘Author’ in the above statemenet would make  complete sense and hopefully you get what I am hinting at.

DISCLAIMER: I received a free copy of RAINBOW from Aman Jassal ( author) with a request to deliver honest review.

RAINBOW- THE SAHDES OF LOVE. DEBUT BOOK BY AMAN JASSAL.  FICTION. RIOMAMNCE. TEENAGE PUBLISHERS. PAGES 176 PRICE. 150.

If I would believe  that the COVER of the book reflects what’s inside- TRUST I WOULD NOT HAVE PICKED THIS BOOK. The Back cover is one of the worst presented piece I have seen. Should you read it: I hope I have answered that above. But if you wish to encourage a writer that I believe could do far better- why not.

BOOK JACKET

Love = Sex? Love+Sex=? Love-Sex=??? Sex-Love=????
This is not a book to teach you about love or how to get a beautiful girl to bed, rather it reveals how bad things can get if you don’t set your priorities right. It’s a story about the most explored life aspect ‘ Love’ ‘Sex’.
YUVI, a pleasure seeking boy, falls victim to the same notorious life facet called love. Simran’s beauty sweeps him off from his feet and he leaves no stone unturned to seek her special attention.
As he falls in love, he also sleeps around with all the erroneous girls, and when his fate threatens to take his love down, he promises himself to stop all of this and come out of the wreckage … But then, his past deeds come back to his present, and that tears his life apart. What follows is an uneasy course of getting his love back on board.
The story reveals the life of today’s youth, their friendships, feelings, priorities, and ineptitude to handle relationships while not forgetting their turmoil between the two critical facets of life: LOVE & SEX.
Love makes the world go round … Or is it Sex? Based on real life experiences and tea time gossips.……………………………………………………………………………………………
