A SMALL BOOK OF BIG LEARNINGS.

My Take

Starting from the cover is alluring the birds flying from a woman’s head represents the feeling of freedom that a women seeks. The title “Such Is Her Life” is different and interesting. As the title suggest it’s a collection of musings on women’s life.

The author has beautifully crafted all the life of a woman right from the time she is in her mothers womb till the time of her death. Musing are written day to day life of female goes through she is raped, rape, child abuse, sexually, mentally, physically, gender discrimination, acid attack, killing, and many others. The best part about these musings was that they were relatable, each and every girl can feel but never truly express herself to people and the things around us. You will feel the magic of words. How a bunch of few words will move you and you happen to close the book and think about rights of women.
Words. That they give voice to your inner most feelings.

The words were simple and the language is lucid which eased the reading. Perfectly portrayed the feelings and narration was intresting. The first thing I did was to check out if the pages were pink too and guess what yes few pages are pink and poetic verses. It’s simply adorable.

4.50 a.m.: She was born.

4.51 a.m.: She was handed over an invisible moral code of conduct!

 

Forgetting easily was a gift.

A gift she wasn’t blessed with.

 

Until yesterday, she was scared of ghosts.

Today she is terrified of people.

 

Life kept changing and she kept accepting it. Until the day she started questing. And that changed the game. Changed her life.

 

they found her strange and weird.

She found herself unconventional and unique.

 

While everyone else left, it was her dad who shielded her through all the earthquakes of her life.

Her dad, her only hero!

 

She was thrilled to bits on seeing her grandchildren play around her.

It was the first day of the month.

The day when they visited her-visited her at the old age home.

Looking forward to read more books by the author.

    Wooden roses is often as small as less than an inch tall and same
    or much more in width. Even those that love which without
    understanding it perfectly well wish to watch
    this channel. Once an ideal design is approved, identify the medium that may
    give you the greatest return.
