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.

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.
