A tale of an extremely gritty girl rising from a self-inflicted tribulation to an unparalleled success.A psychological novel,a first of an author, is fast paced n keeps u riveted to the pages.The plot is thin n narrates a slice of life of main character Sona who all of a sudden finds that everything around her is torn asunder,she learns to her devastation,the loss of her mother,father,sis n her friend cum philosopher bro-in-law in a plane crash.The only near n dear one left was her pre-adoloscent niece,Guddi.If this was not enough every thing she touched after this unfortunate incidence turned to ashes for her.
We know from the begining that she was a quality tennis player with an aspiration to play at highest level one day. But the woes of Sona get aggravated with her self-delusions emanating from her turbulent sub-conscious.
She day-dreams, in her hallucination she dons the mantle of a world's top most prospective tennis player n interacts with Helena -a world's ace tennis player- and others big names of tennis in her voyage of imagination,and when normal observers find it seriously amiss n abnormal,she would take it as an insincere affront and severely resent it.When this trojan-horse of her subconscious would go mute for awhile her father's angry comments about her prospects in tennis n other aspect of life would torment her no ends.Apart from her inner demons n sharks there are actual ones in a personage of jhunjhunwala,who is after her property n land.
It is a saga of series of disasters in the field of tennis,painting/sketching, pursuits in writings for her as an entire world has turned against her. The callous, cold n vindictive treatment met out to her in the school of her niece,the crafty swindler around her to rob of her property spins a viscious cycle of paranoia,depression n hallucination in her.
Things start moving in right direction when she meets the true friend in Baanger who remains his friend in thick n thin throughout till she attains her true mantle as a celebrity author of children's books n scales new height in success( a la J.K.Rowling,an author of Harry Potter series)
The awakening moment, comes with an exhortation of Baanger to Sona to find her real elixir and goal by not suppressing the demon n apparition of Helena but to sublimate n take off her energies to achieve her true metier which lies elsewhere than tennis..
As story revolves around a main protagonist,Sona,the style of writing is catchy, the author has an eye for detail n his pen-portraits of characters, situations, n surroundings are quite captivating.
The relationship of Sona with her parents, and sis was an aspect which was not dwelled upon by the author,hence we remain in dark about many dark n bright sides of her relations with them, also with that many knots of her persona remain unravelled. .A sketchy but a touching reference is found when Sona fondly remembers her muslim bro-in-law whenever she is despondent. This role is however taken by the Baanger who of all the persons understands Sona with all her warts n blemishes the best.
All the characters, Anjana aunty(a well-wisher n mother's friend) , Raghu kaka,Baanger (a sheet-anchor who ended as her life partner),Guddi(who faced affection,n ire both in an unpredictable manner from her suffering aunt),a clutch of friends n specially children the novel with their naughty,harmless and affable pranks;enliven the novel.
It is a short novel n author has envisioned a an enchanting
vista of-'darr ke aagey jeet hai'in it. A commendable attempt,and I wish him all the success in his future ventures.
