About The Book: To be in love is an amazing feeling. You find yourself floating in the air of dreams even without the wings of patience. This delightful state of mind needs to be preserved in the happy house of our memories and here is the preserved particle of this mesmerized experience. Unlike an autobiographical narrative, 'Some Silent Steps' demonstrates our present time lovers and the terrible state they are in. In this modern day romance, where youth lingers between breakup and commitment, even if you choose to abide by a committed relationship, still there are certain inhibitions in your way to success.
What if your commitment is contested by the family? What if there is a threat to your life in the name of honor killing? Read about the people who devised an escape route to attain fulfillment in love.
Rishi went to Nai Sarak in Delhi to buy some second-hand books of English Literature. The random lines written in two books blazed his senses. Ritika Rohatgi and Shagun Yadav both were associated with the single guy, Ambuj Sharma. Inside the pages of those books was breathing a mysterious story of love, longing and fulfillment. There are a bedridden girlfriend, a dead beloved and a disillusioned friend. But true love never dies; it just sinks deep inside the heart. And it was dug up by Rishi. A beautiful story of friendship, courtship and romance was lying there. And the discovery begins. We meet Ritika, the symbol of pure love. Would she be able to maintain the purity of her love? We meet Shagun, the symbol of longing. Would her longing find an end? And we finally meet life which is interfered by societal norms, not sure on which track to move on? Bruised by the brutal act of Honor killing. All this cannot be left on time. We need to strive and follow some silent steps to attain fulfillment in love.
The greatest act of disobedience to father was the Original Sin that our ancestors, Adam and Eve, committed. But still God did not kill them. They were just banished from the home. Who gave us right then to kill our offspring? How can we be so stone hearted? Are we greater than God??
Review: “Some Silent Steps” not only touched my heart but my soul also. Author Jitender Parmar had beautifully narrated the meaning of love with the help of different characters. The way story started with author himself then he tried to solve the mystery behind Vikrant, Aparna, Ambuj, Shagun, Ritika, Nitin and Jyoti’s relationship with the help of Vikrant was beautifully narrated. He also gave a message of Honor killing which was truly disheartening incidence. It’s really shocking to read people kill their loved ones in the name of Honor killing. There were different emotions of love which was beautifully clubbed together. I really loved reading Ambuj’s character. It really made me cry to read about Shagun’s love and her sacrifice and her guilt for not understanding Ambuj’s love. Ritika’s Love for Ambuj was also very beautifully defined which forced her to kill her life. The climax gave us some surprises as well as made us filled with emotions. It’s really true “Love happens not with the perfect one but to make someone perfect in the course of it” That was happening with Ambuj, Shagun and Ritika. Vikrant and Aparna’s love story was also sweet. Nitin and Jyoti’s story really made me cry with the Shock. The cover of the book was pleasing and suited to the title. The blurb of the book will surely make you read the book. Overall a nice read. Good Luck Author.
