The Dove’s Lament by Kirthi Jayakumar


The haunting images of people falling dead, as the flames of life were extinguished in a puff of smoke, danced before my eyes. I wanted to run.I wanted to shout. I wanted the pain coursing through my veins to end in a deafening blast. I wanted the dead back. The silence around was too loud for me. I couldn’t cope. Slowly, my dead-still surroundings started stirring and I became aware of the voices around me … some begging for mercy … some calling out to their loved ones … and what seemed perhaps, newly orphaned children crying piteously. I heard Death’s cape swish and flap in the sick winds that Murder blew. Images of corpses with a permanent scream locked into their faces were etched in my memory forever.
‘Habimana, Habimana, are you one of those faces?’ No!
It cannot be.
Pain shot up my left arm.
I fell back in a stupor.
Habimana … I know you are not dead … I will find you,
wherever you are …
Blood dripped somewhere.

Simple Plane love by Priyanka Luthra

Simple_0I received the book Simple Plane love by Priyanka Luthra as a review copy from Rupa Publications and would like to thank Richa for the same. This is a simple book about Meera Khanna, an airline pilot. Hence, Plane and not plain. The book starts with Meera flying for the last time in Manila as she is packing her bags to go back to India. And then the whole story is in flashback till the last chapter when the book comes back to the present.

The Blurb:

Meet Captain Meera Khanna. As a first officer on an Aeroflot Aviation plane, with a luxurious apartment in the beautiful city of Manila, she seems to have it all. Flying to exotic destinations, navigating turbulent flights through typhoons and handling engine failure are all in a day’s work.  Even when a leg injury forces Meera to take time off her busy schedule, she has the perfect solution—an exciting vacation to Subic Bay with her glamorous best friend Diana, aka Dee. And nothing could have been a better idea, what with the unexpected arrival of her childhood friend, the suave Aditya. But when Aditya seems to want more than friendship, it throws Meera off-kilter. Will Meera’s perfect life come to an abrupt landing? Or will she find her happily-ever-after?

In Simple Plane Love, join Captain Meera on a rollicking adventure, where navigating an aeroplane seems simpler than negotiating the many twists and turns of love.

The characters:

Meera Khanna, known as Em to her friends, is a commercial pilot who works for a chartered plane company in Manila. She hails from Mumbai and followed the footsteps of her father who was a pilot himself, much against her mother’s wishes. Diana, Dee, is her best friend. They met in college and have been confidantes ever since. She works as the editor of a fashion magazine and has an endless collection of bags and shoes. She does not believe is love. Aditya Kapoor, Adi, is also their best friend. He and Meera have been friends since childhood. He is a banker and is the person whom Em calls anytime for anything.

The story:

After qualifying as a captain, Meera gets a job in Manila in a chartered plane company under Captain Garcia, her boss. Then one day, she hurts her knee on one of the flights and is grounded for two weeks. So she makes use of the opportunity and calls Dee to be with her in manila when they can have a Girl vacation and does not invite Adi. The two of then go to Subic Bay for a vacation and meet an Indian sailor, Aryaman Rathore and Dee and Aryaman become friends. In Mumbai, Aditya cannot take it to be alone and ends up reaching Subic Bay and surprising Em in the process. He indicates that she is the one for him. She tries to dodge the subject.

Read on to find out Em’s feelings for Adi……

My take:

The book has been written in first person and the author being a pilot herself seems to have put in her flying experiences in the book. The story is simple and fast paced but I felt that the author could have added more interaction between Aditya and Meera, if this book was their love story.

Mr Imperfect Series: Arranged Marriage by Aditi Chopra

51+8uETIbDL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_I received the book Mr Imperfect Series (Complete collection) by Aditi Chopra as a review copy from the author herself, and I finished it the same evening as I received it, I just could not put it down, it was so captivating. This book has three books in one, namely, House of love; Arranged marriage and Love Tango. And I shall be reviewing the book story by story. All the three stories are set in Dallas and are somehow connected to each other by the way of characters. The second story is Arranged marriage.

As the book blurb mentions:

Three intriguing women, Three imperfect men, Three fascinating stories!

Arranged Marriage

Arranged marriage – where love happens after marriage or does it?

Ishan, a NRI from Dallas, Texas visits his home country, India and gets entangled in his parents’ plan to get him married. Sonali is a simple girl from a small town called Meerut and has no desire to leave India. However, she reluctantly agrees to marry Ishan. But when she settles with him in a foreign country, she is completely lost and homesick.

Will Sonali find love in a conventionally arranged marriage?

The Story:

Arranged Marriage:

Ishan Suri, 32, comes to India for a month long trip to spend quality time with his parents but is upset that all they are doing is asking him to get married. He fins the concept of arranged marriage too old-fashioned. One evening, he discusses this with his childhood friend, Ajay, who writes the address of his relative from Meerut, whose parents are also in search of a groom for her and stuffs it into his shirt pocket. And this bit of paper finds its way into the hands of Mrs Suri, who calls up the girl’s parents about meeting even before he gets up next morning, as the elder Suris think that Ishan is in love with this girl and is too shy to come out with it.

Sonali Thakur, 25, an English graduate does not want to get married to someone outside India but still meets the Suris only to get an affirmative answer. Two weeks later, Ishan and Sonali are married and packed off to the US. There Sonali makes friends with Maya and Nikki as Nikki’s husband, Karan, is Ishan’s friend. Initially, she is homesick but Ishan tries to make the adjustment easier for her. As the relationship between Ishan and Sonali starts moving forward, Nikki mentions Tina, Ishan’s ex-girlfriend.

My take:

Arranged marriage is a beautiful story about and NRI groom and an Indian girl, something that happens very commonly in India. The author has depicted the relationship of the protagonists beautifully and also their feelings. I felt that Sonali feeling insecure after Tina’s name popped up was something that was very natural.
