Book Review - ‘The Wedding Trousseau and Other Short Stories’

Author - Ankita Sharma

Even though I recv. a copy from my friend Ankita, the author of this book, I would like to say that this is purely objective and unbiased.

Coming to the book, what I liked the most is the diversity of stories and that most of her writing silently questions the society regarding their norms and age old thinking. One can easily relate to the dialogues of characters. 

‘The Pink Card’ points to the hypocrisy of people. 

‘The Wedding Trousseau’ is a question mark on Indian style arranged marriages and wrong priorities.

‘Just Perfect’ enlightens with the definition of perfection. 

‘One More Bite’ – Shows that how much we are concerned about the well-being of the people related to us but don’t have even a bit empathy about those who are from other backgrounds.

These are some of my favorites but all eleven stories are worth reading.

On her very first book she does not seem like a complete amateur. 

Over all, I loved this book very much and would wish her all the best for future! 

I give a rating of 4/5 to this title.

Standing in my balcony under the eaves
Stretching my arms and let the drops fall on my palms
It stirred something inside like drop fell in petal
The love, the purity, the calmness is felt inside the heart

I wonder when I wander in a road alone
How it feels to share the path

Does my interest wither after a while
Or I enjoy the company forever
Maybe I regret the wish and wish again to be alone

But still I wonder when I wander in a road alone
How it feel if somebody holding my hand

Does he leave it in difficult roads
Or holds tightly and never let me go
Maybe I let go or be alone

And again I wonder when I wander in a road alone

Believe in Yourself...

Sometimes I ask myself do I have the nerves to change things around me
I hear some voices, but they are not clear as they are deep inside me
I ask that voice to scream louder so I can hear you
And the voice really yelled at me – why asking me when the master of your life is you
I said OK I know I do have guts to change the situations
But want another opinion of my questions to overcome the confusion
The voice said no need to ask just do what you feel like
If you listen to others there are no two persons alike
If you want to reason, you yourself the right person
Ask and think the pros and cons and take the right decision

I just want to say I love you
Even though I know you are not mine now
But I cant stop my feelings
If its easy tell me how

These three words are very difficult to say
That's why before I am not able to say even a part
But now it's tough to hide
Therefore I am saying it to you when we are apart

My love is always with you
Wherever you go
Just sow some moments of ours
And a plant of love will grow

Whenever you are in difficult situation
You just think of me
And I'll be there to help you
And glow like a lamp to see


The person I love more than my life
The person I can remember even when I die
The person for whom I came to this world
The person on whom I can pour all my love
The person who is in depth of my heart
The person who is my soul and my body part
The person without whom my life has no meaning
The person with whom I can spend my life remaining
The person who is so close to me
The person so close that he can only be feels
The person with whom I can share everything
The person who remain with me even when the life stings
I love that person I care for him
The night the day I think of him
I want to live with that person
I want to stay in his heart
I want to follow that person
By his foot mark.

The Three Words

The three words of love
The three words of laughter
The three words of cry
The three words which are answer
That how much I love you
That how much I care
That how much my heart bleeds
When you are not near

The three words are magic
The three words are pleasure
The three words are fragrance
The three words are treasure
Which always make me realize
That you are somewhere near to me
You are close to my heart
And you are someone dear to me
