#BookReview – आईना समाज का
We hear so many jumle like – “what will society say”
I ask – “who is this society?”
Society is what we make it. Society is neither formed by an individual not affected by particular person’s views. However, society is collective result of everyone’s actions included.
Recently I read a book in which the author has subtly presented the true face of society and how result of even single person’s deeds affects others.
Book: आईना समाज का
Author: Ritu Agrawal
Format: Kindle ebook
About the Book
The book consists of 24 short stories which are a reflection of society we are living in, thus, the title meaning “Mirror of Society”.
Though the backdrop of stories are fictional, yet while reading the reader realizes that the situation is true for many. The short & concise conversations and one-liners touch the heart and leave a pinching painful feeling.
Some of the current issues highlighted through stories in the book are child molestation, acid attacks, brain drain of talented and young, domestic violence, female feticide, patriarchy, etc. Every story reflects a prevalent societal evil.
Everyone condemns the increasing crimes and hatred, but how many realize being part of them in one way or the other.
The stories appear simple and written in plain Hindi language, yet they cast a deep impression on reader’s mind and leave some food for thought.
I liked all the stories, yet my favorite and heart trenching story, horror of every mother remains the very first story of the book, in which a little girl refuses to take chocolate from an uncle because she remembers her friend went missing after accepting chocolate from another uncle. The story spotlights what a filthy mentality some people who don’t even pardon poor little innocent kids. Every parent today feels worried sick for their kid, because absolutely no one can be trusted today with children. Child molestation and rapes of young girls are most heinous and disgusted crimes one can commit in life.
