There is a wonderful saying: “The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems, but those who learn to live with things that are less than perfect.” In this highly competitive world, life of corporate work-force is full of all kinds of strain and stress. There is no way we can escape from our jobs and its work pressure, but we can certainly counter it by enriching the fun and laughter quotient at work. 65 Colours of Rainbow is a collection of sixty-five short stories and caricatures based on real life, work-related incidents. This pleasingly warm collection writes with terrifying compassion about the things that matter most. The distinctive narrative caricatures demonstrate how extraordinary the ordinary can be!!
The cover is beautiful but it can be much better. The title is apt for the plot. It’s a collection of 65 short story. The narration is perfect. As the author points it right in the foreword that in a busy schedule one has now-a-days it is hard to find time during the day to read a book. The length of the stories makes it easier for the workaholic people to spare a few minutes for a good smile without being stressed about the time lost. It is then, when a quick and refreshing read like short stories play their part and keep us entertained. These stories are short and funny so it’s really enjoyable. It helps us laughing alone through small memorized events happens in the IT professionals life. The each story in the book is very short hardly two pages. These stories are not outright humorous, so don’t go there expecting a good laugh. It rather will make you remember some of the funny incidents from your surroundings, workplace and will make you smile. This book intends on refreshing your mood and putting a upward curve to your lips. I like most of the stories The Chip, Busy Fellow, The Toffee, The April Fool, , The Sick Leave, The Mail are the some stories which i enjoyed the most while reading. The author has done a good job in narrating all the stories with ease. The language is simple to follow which make it easier for the reader to connect to the characters in the stories and resonate with them.
An engaging read, you can take this one up on a lazy afternoon. I will recommend this book to all workaholic person.
