This is not your story

A story would always be incomplete without the one you can finally be happy with. Yes, it is not an end, until you are satisfied with what ever you have. 

Savi Sharma with her second book ‘this is not your story’s has amazingly portrayed story of young men and women.

Shaurya, a CA student. Miraya, an interior designer. Anubhav, an aspiring entrepreneur. Kasturi, shaurya’s neighbour and a dear friend.
you seem so confident,’ I said, my eyebrows raised high, feeling sceptical at his words. ‘risks can often land you I. A far worse situation.’

‘True,’ he nodded, his grin widening. ‘but, then again, the weight of regret and asking yourself what if, down the road is afar more haunting to one’s soul. What if i took that chance? Well, if the worst that happens is that you have to come back home and pick up where you left off, at least you can stop wasting time on dreaming and wondering if it’s still a possibility.’ -pg24

Shaurya, is excellent at studies and knows he would do real well, at his CA exams. But, what is it that he wants to do instead? What is his dream after all? And around his story revolves all of others. 

Miraya, is depressed over her broken marriage whereas, anything is all mourning over his dead parents. And just like, iron cuts iron, both of them find refugee under each others company. But, would they ever confess?

Would shaurya confess his love for kasturi? Would he follow his dreams after all? 

Sometimes, you do not write your story, it writes you. You don’t choose your story, it chooses you.

Savi Sharma has taken this book with good composition of motivation and storytelling combined.

To kill a mockingbird 

Apparently it takes a great deal to go through a book written by Harper Lee. And, indeed it is a great pleasure to go through such an intricate piece of literature. 

Atticus finch, a lawyer with his two children’s Jeremy finch and Jean Louise finch.

The basic story line revolves around a child’s thought story over the people of his county and there various headed wars. It gives an immense pleasure to notice the little understandings and thoughts of a child like mind.

“if you shouldn’t be defending him, then why are you doing no it? “

“for a Number of reasons,” said atticus. “the main one is, if I didn’t I couldnt hold up my head in town, I couldn’t represent this county in the legislature, I could even tell you or homemade not to do something again.”

“you mean if you didn’t defend that man, jem and me wouldn’t have to mind you any more?”

“that’s about right.”

“why?”

“because I could never ask you to mind me again. Scout, simply by the nature of the work, every lawyer gets at least one case in his lifetime that affects him personally. This one’smine, I guess. You might hear some influx talk about it at school, but do one thing for me if you will; you just hold your head high and keep those fists down. No matter what anybody says to you, don’t let ilthem get your goat. Try fighting with your head for a change… It’s a good one, even if it does resist learning.”

“Atticus, are we going to win it?”

“no, honey.”

“then why-“

“simply because we were licked a hundred years ago before we started is no reason for us not to Trey to win,” atticus said.

-to kill a mockingbird pg84

The story of black and white people. The story of everyday at national county. How it has all that goes wrong, comes to you. A lie never goes unpaid. 

And yes, the one person scout and jem looked around since childhood. Boo radley. Where is he? Could they find him? How do they find him? There neighbour. 

The words, however difficult to understand, Harper Lee has one of the best intellect story to learn from. Me it the words, the presence of humour, or the thoughts of a little one described. The ultimate story of atticus finch as he raises his two little ones.

The alchemist

The story of dreams and the heights one could go through to reach them.

“it is the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” -pg11

Santiago is a shepherd who dreams of finding treasure amidst of a pyramid. But. It is a long way to go.  Pyramids are not right along the corner.

“making a decision was only the beginning of things. When someone makes a decision, he is really dividing into a strong current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.” -pg71


The people he meets up along his journey, the ones who teaches him the language of the soul of the world are what matters more than the treasure. 

The king, the merchant, the alchemist and above all,  the love of his life, Fatima.

“I am going away”,he said. “and I want you to know that I’m coming back. I love you because.. “

“don’t say anything, “Fatima interrupted. “one is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving. ” -pg128

And it is what he learnt that matters. 

“because it is not love to be static like the desert, not is it love to roam the world like the wind. And it’s not love to see everything from a distance, like you do. Love is the force that transforms and improves the soul of the world. ” -pg158

With all of the love,  Paulo Coelho and his first every published book leaves you amazed with his words. Let it be the story or the spiritualism he spreads. His motivation is all that is required in this consistent life.

The story of achievement.

Because, “when you want something, all the universe conspires to Help you achieve that.

In a world where everyone struggles to survive whatever the cost, how could one judge those people who decide to die? 

No one can judge. Each person knows the extent of their own suffering, or the total absence of meaning in their lives. -pg13

Veronika, the girl who decides to die and swallows up number of sleeping pills. Why? Well,  she is bored of her monotonous life and feels the need to leave this world. 

But, she survives. Indeed she makes it to Vilette, the place where all the mad people are treated.

Zedka, the girl who left her role as mistress and married someone who loved her more. But, did she love her?  Well, no! And years later,  she was devasted, and surely made her way to the hospital and never left. 

Who else?

Eduard,  a schizophrenic. A wanna be painter, who falls in love with Veronika. 
 But, is Veronika here to survive? 

No, she is going to die, as the doctor said. 

“I would say that if someone only has a short time to live and decides to spend that time sitting beside a bed, watching a man sleeping, then that must be love.” -pg146.

What is it that waits for Veronika? 

And Eduard? Will he survive? 

The story of a girl and her recover post a suicide attempt. It takes a strong heart to follow what they really want, and this is what death teaches her, Marie, zedka and Eduard. 

Paulo Coelho and his immense knowledge of visions inspire me to be what I am. Thank you for such amazing works.
