Last week @ shopping mall, i ended up taking a book, which seemed quite interesting to me .... well ! i not only found it interesting but very inspiring .. leart a few lessons Wink

A novel by Rajashree 'Trust Me'

Rajashree's been a hindi film buff .. She has been working in mumbai after studying direction at FTII, pune. A film she wrote & directed , The Rebel, won a National Award & was screened at many film festivals. Trust Me is her first Novel.

I enjoyed it sooooooo much.. it was more of viewing a film only Tongue A very lighhearted, very entertaining romantic comedy. A funny take on errant men & a woman who has learnt her lesson, the hard way, ..Trust Me ... is about finding love, dealing with lust & knowing the difference !!

A girl who has learnt her lessons late in life... but she has learnt it well - all men are b*&^%&*. her life goes on & how ppl she had trusted in took her for granted, & how tough it becomes to fell in love with a boy who claimes to have fallen in love with her.

A full of homour click & sooooooo realistic.. even i could see my reflection somewhere in tht girl..  Roll Eyes  Tongue

One of the most anticipated books of the year, Lahiri's first novel (after 1999's Pulitzer Prize-winning Interpreter of Maladies) amounts to less than the sum of its parts. Hopscotching across 25 years, it begins when newlyweds Ashoke and Ashima Ganguli emigrate to Cambridge, Mass., in 1968, where Ashima immediately gives birth to a son, Gogol-a pet name that becomes permanent when his formal name, traditionally bestowed by the maternal grandmother, is posted in a letter from India, but lost in transit. Ashoke becomes a professor of engineering, but Ashima has a harder time assimilating, unwilling to give up her ties to India. A leap ahead to the '80s finds the teenage Gogol ashamed of his Indian heritage and his unusual name, which he sheds as he moves on to college at Yale and graduate school at Columbia, legally changing it to Nikhil. In one of the most telling chapters, Gogol moves into the home of a family of wealthy Manhattan WASPs and is initiated into a lifestyle idealized in Ralph Lauren ads. Here, Lahiri demonstrates her considerable powers of perception and her ability to convey the discomfort of feeling "other" in a world many would aspire to inhabit. After the death of Gogol's father interrupts this interlude, Lahiri again jumps ahead a year, quickly moving Gogol into marriage, divorce and a role as a dutiful if a bit guilt-stricken son. This small summary demonstrates what is most flawed about the novel: jarring pacing that leaves too many emotional voids between chapters. Lahiri offers a number of beautiful and moving tableaus, but these fail to coalesce into something more than a modest family saga. By any other writer, this would be hailed as a promising debut, but it fails to clear the exceedingly high bar set by her previous work.
