Arohi, a carefree, music loving and filled with life Mumbaiyan meets Randeer during her internship and falls heads over heels for him. But despite his charismatic and cheerful nature, something seems to bind him from emotional attachment. While fighting their own battles, they are helping Abhi in his own amorous conquest with Megha. Will they succeed in winning Megha over? But more importantly, what is the secret behind Randeer’s restrained behaviour and chained affection?


When I stopped Living to impress. From the title, I thought it would be a self-help book, but then, I was wrong. It’s a cute, simple story of Arohi and Randeer. Arohi, a girl with millions of dreams, an independent girl, from a small town and Randeep, a Mumbaikar, hardworking and smart boy. Will they meet? where will destiny take them?.

First of all, I loved the cover of the book. It’s beautiful, simple and classy. The title must have been something else, as from the title it feels like its a self-help book. The plot of the book is created wonderfully. It’s Simple, easy and connecting. Yes, there are twists and turns in the story but then the plot is predictable. The narration is simple, crisp and smooth. One can connect with the story from the very first page. This book is a practical book, but then there are a lot of scenes which are repetitive. The pace of the story is little slow. The author tried to explain work culture, friendship, parents support, grudges, but then That twist in the story was little less.  It was a little plain story. The flow is smooth and good. The characters, I loved them. Each and every character had their own personality, their own Importance, be it Arohi, or Arohi’s Parents. Randeer, Megha, Abhi, Hari, everyone had their own importance. There are many places where I found impractical. The language used by the author is intriguing.

This book has strong characters, simple plot, Crisp Narration, Interesting Language. It’s a good book for a short read, I finished it in a go.

Overall it’s a simple story. those who love reading a short, simple story go for it.
