My Review: 🌟🌟🌟/5
It is a one act play revolving around Jiya who is trying to find answers to some unanswered questions which will help her gain inner peace. While she was out partying with her friends before graduation she meets Arjun and pours her heart out to him. Without even knowing his name she tells him about all her insecurities and fears which are disturbing her. Arun understands her feelings and comforts her telling to believe in God and life would be simple. He points out that nobody in this world is without flaws and answers to all our questions lie within us. We just need to keep faith in God and everything will fall in place. But after the party she is unable to find Arjun and she did not even know his name. Will Arjun’s word be helpful to Jiya?Will Jiya be able to find Arjun? Will she able to find to find eternal happiness?
The book is a short and easy read which can be finished within an hour. The language used is simple and easily understandable. Though Jiya seems to be little whiny and is not the girl I would root for but the questions she asks about life are relevant and many of us at some point of time have had such thoughts. The book motivates you and guides you to preach self love. We need to accept ourselves as we are which will eventually lead to peace and happiness. Also the book portrays that sometimes you can fel more connected to a stranger than your close friends. Maybe they have gone through the same phase so they can understand you better and guide you through the right part. Thus if you are up for a light quick read then go for this book.
