Review: Rebirth of Love in 2060

Image
Rebirth of Love in 2060 by Vignesh S.V.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Love in future will be torrid. It will be like Maggi 2 minutes noodles. But earlier it was not. Inter caste or inter religion love was a big deal in today’s time. But when you look at it from future it looks very insignificant thing.

Karthi lives in 2060 and was attached to his grand father Bala. When he dies Karthi tries to know about his love story. Ramesh and Sharaz are his friends who joins him in this expedition. He finds out about 6 friends of his grandparents. His grandmother Keerthi was very beautiful and shy. How they met and fell in love is the journey of the book.

The book looks back from future to today’s world and customs. Religion is for uniting us and not for divindg. Bala is a hindu and Keerthi is catholic.

Religion is just a set of rules to keep us on track. Changing religion for marriage is a terrible idea. People are the way they are because they follow their religion.

It is nice little story…

Because I love You by Pradip Chauhan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

एक राधा, एक मीरा दोनों ने श्याम को चाहा
अन्तर क्या दोनों की चाह में बोलो
इक प्रेम दीवानी, इक दरस दीवानी


There is a devotion line in Hindu religion which follows the path of love. Krishna and Radha are the epitome of pure love. It is almost platonic. Love is also a medium to each God. But is it happening in modern India? Now a days love means live in relationships or one night stands. Where is the space for that pure platonic love?

Kanaji is like Krishna- lover’s king and a perfect flute player. There are Radha and Meera too. Radha loves Kanaji. They work at a construction site. Then some tragedy strikes and seeds of suspicion are sown in Kanaji’s heart. Will the cosmic lovers unite again?

Kanaji is like Sri Krishna who can die for Radha. He is from a village and is innocent and pure. Radha is also pious and totally devoted to Kanaji. There is a Gandharva Vivah (love marriage in front of God). But the question book add…

The Gift by Sourabh Mukherjee
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Does live in relationships work? Is it a modern phenomenon or an age old thing.

Aarav’s live in GF gets pregnant and he is confused what to do. She leaves him in a rage. He goes to Mussorie to his old home and complete the novel. His uncle was a successful businessman who withdrew to that home later on. There his uncle met a mysterious woman and fell in love.

The story is simple but tugs at your heart. It is olden days live in kind of thing. Is love name of sacrifice? This is fort part of the series and was very good. 3/ 5 stars.

Daredreamers: A Start-up of Superheroes by Kartik Sharma
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A startup is defined by Wikipedia as:
“A startup or start-up is an entrepreneurial venture which is a newly emerged business venture that aims to meet a marketplace need, want or problem by developing a viable business model around products, services, processes or platforms. A startup is a new business venture designed to effectively develop and validate a scalable business model.
Start-ups do have high rates of failure, but the minority that have gone on to be successful includes companies that have become large and influential.”

There are many tech startups in all over the world. But a startup of super heroes? This is certainly a novel idea. The book is divided into parts and action starts from part 3.

In part one RASIQ joins an investment form in Mumbai. There he works 24x7 without breaks. His girlfriend of college days leaves him because he cannot devote time to her. on top of it he has to de…
