Book Review | MIЯЯЯO : at THƎ WƎIЯⱭ WAYWAЯⱭ


Storyline:  

The theme of this book revolves around the eradication of perennial social problems and evils that have increased substantially in India. Social evils like rape, consumption of tobacco, alcohol and drugs are on an all-time high level yet no one is bothered about solving these problems from the roots. Ragging is schools and colleges and lack of proper educational facilities have also been given a serious thought in the book.
The feelings and the troubles of the victims and their families are clearly and extensively discussed in the book. Various solutions have been suggested.
The storyline was at times slow-paced and lost its taste but overall the experience was good.
All the details regarding the crimes have been clearly stated with little to no errors.

After-thoughts on the book: 

The book is a must-read by all adults and teens who need to be educated about the social-evils in the correct way. According to a study, by 2030 the number of people addicted to some kind of mind-altering drugs would be about 70%. that is about 7 in 10 people which is really shocking as that would lead to an economic collapse of the world if the workforce is unproductive.
Women empowerment in India is another topic that is cliched and presented as if a lot has been done to improve the situation but the ground reality is really shocking. The author has done all that he could to enlighten the youth to stand up against these crimes and eradicate rapes and other assaults against women once and for all and for good.

Genre:

It is said that the author Manoj Kumar Sharma loves to read fiction books that centrally focuses on solving a perennial problem and he has also written this book in the aforementioned topic.

 Cover:

 The cover design was overdramatic and needs to be worked on intensively to look attractive.
Even though the book was awesome many people would hesitate to read it after looking the cover itself. It proves that one can't judge a book by its cover but it is true that a person does judge a book by its cover. I hope that if the author reads this review he will give a second thought about the cover design.

Thought-Provoking Ideas:

The author of the book Manoj Kumar Sharma has told us to think about one question that is:
Will the owners of the liquor and cigarette producing companies or any of their employees recommend their beloved family members to use these products. Will they tell their children to get accustomed to these products and use them daily. Will they feed them to his/her husband/wife?
Will they give an ounce of alcohol to their kids as breakfast or dinner?
Now it is up to you to decide if/whether to use these mind-altering elements if at all at any costs.

Bad habits not only affect a person's life itself but they also put adverse effects on the lives of their family members and society.
Losing hope and struggle in life when the situation goes bad to worse only makes the problems appear worst and adapting to bad habits in these situations may seem to relax the body for a moment but they are not permanent and give adverse side-effects to the person's health.

Rating:

3.5/5

I'm being very generous about the rating because of the author's stern viewpoint regarding these social evils. The book was a bit tough to complete but eventually, towards the end, it picked up its pace and engrossed me.

Pricing:

As of now, it is free for reading in Kindle. One can buy the Paperback format of this book too
from Notion Press stores or Amazon.

Poem - #13 | Utopian Dystopia | On Poverty and Racism

On Poverty and Racism They say it ain't good When you show your cunning self But when you have to beg for food Being honest is of little help. Sit in the heat, sit in the rain; Is it the best way, you use your brain. But you know what? The rich don't care, About the miseries the poor share. Oh! Please don't spit there Thats where I sleep dear: And don't you piss there My food is in there! Yeah you heard it right But you still will fight, With the people and the government, Everytime they have us money, lent. For the rich get richer,  And the poor - poorer: Very few things in this world Are more truer, Than this clichéd phrase. You see, we live in such a country When dogs are prayed but men slayed, On the basis of their so-called caste How long do you think can such a rule last? And the black men, kicked out and murdered Just because God had them coloured. And yet they say we live in an uto
