What I felt: WRITTEN IN THE STARTS – Book review
The story takes place in Bangalore and starts with its famous Bangalore traffic and her love for trivia. Being late for trivia and fun hurdles she faces just to enter the club. Her entry was the fun part of this book. I must say that it is hilarious and yet a reality of how we can be so messy sometimes.
Her first encounter with her future crush Abhimanyu was out of the blue and I couldn’t imagine having an encounter like that. Imagine you meet a person whom you think is a complete d*ck and he ends up being your boss and his approval is needed for your promotion and all this process makes you fall for him…? Sounds crazy, right…!
Glam being a startup, many new ideas were taken up after serious discussions and evaluations and so Sitara needed a solid plan of her idea to get it implement. As she came to know that Abhimanyu was obsessed with Horoscope and he schedules and plans his important meeting accordingly, she started staking his horoscope.
In this process to get approval and promotion she did hurt her friends’ feelings who were not aware of her scheduling meetings as per horoscope. Dhruv, a very manipulative colleague tries his best to put off Sitara’s launch plan.
Despite the office madness, Abhi and Sitara became close when he offers a ride to her sister’s house and how her niece invites him over to be her friend. After a typical Indian family gathering and listening to counters, he offers to rescue Sitara from her family. And their friendship started.
In the process of getting a promotion she fells in love with Abhimanyu and so does he. And after so many meetings when she finally gets things right and all set for promotion but something happens that would make all the efforts go in vain.
Sitara learns the hard way of not letting one thing take overall and people do matter in life. Reading Written in the Stars was a roller coaster ride for me and I could connect myself with all the reality of life and sometimes we can get so greedy but should have control over how we take things.
