Love is the most beautiful thing. It has the strong power to make up or break up. Love is everywhere, between everyone – be it friends, a mother and son/daughter, a student and teacher or brother and sister. Love gives one the courage and motivation to face each situation and circumstance of life.

About the book

Kalpana is a Hindi word and name of the book; which itself means an imagination. It is a fictional story of a girl named Kalpana. The purpose of writing this book is to uplift the society from their orthodox thoughts, to highlight the social stigmas, to follow at least some ethics and fill the gaps of disparity.

Kalpana is a beautiful, cute innocent kid born to the lovable Indian family with their own traditions and culture. She is an apple of everyone’s eye and lives in her own imaginary world. The changing circumstances and scenarios at each step of life from infant to childhood, teenager, and adulthood taught her new lessons. She was courageous and didn’t lose heart or break anywhere but stood as a much stronger and bold person after each setback. At the age of 21, she is a much more mature person compared to youngsters of her age.

Nidhi, the first and eldest child of the joint family, was a teacher, friend, sister and guardian to Kalpana. She was a role model but just a single mistake by her ruined the honor of the family. The whole family went into depression and became conservative. Rules changed for other siblings too and they had to fight for every action. Kalpana had to fight even for her future and education. The fight didn’t end there. Further the malicious or false allegations of pregnancy made her life worst.

The writer has clearly coordinated the role and significance of each person in the family, especially towards a growing child. How a single incidence can spoil or change the environment of the house and simultaneously impact the relations. She has smartly marked the emotions like a struggle, trust, gesture, feelings, learning etc with the relations and incidents happening in the family.

As such there is no end to this story but then, this is just the part one of Kalpana. The writer promises to tell us what continues with her in next phases of life. So stay tuned to know ahead and I personally feel there is something exciting ahead which will tell us more about the truths of life.

My Verdict on The Book Kalpana

I won’t say Kalpana is the best books I have read till today, but surely it is a great effort by the young author and technocrat. She holds a good motive to bring the gender equality, to make women realize they can choose what they like or not and fight for her rights. The book is simple and breezy read.  It holds you till the end to know what will happen in the next chapter. The book can be read in a calm and relax manner. It runs over 99 pages and has strong deep hidden messages on each page. I recommend this book to all the readers (both men and women) and especially to the youngsters, so we get some inspiration and together make an effort to change the social marks of disgrace for everyone.

Save your marriage using only Travel

You don’t have time for me. You are completely in to your work. You don’t know what is happening around. I can feed myself and work for my own needs. Blah Blah.. Don’t you think these are the common arguments happening after marriage in every house? The number of divorces because of these arguments are increasing. Hindustan times report says that from past five years these numbers are continuously shooting up. Before any decision listen to us and just travel with your spouse. Travel will not only save your marriage but will do wonders to bring you two together.

Save your marriage using only travel

Here we list down some advantages of travelling together as couple.

  1. Partners reveals themselves

    Moving away from comfort zone, gives one a chance to look deeper into their spouse. True discoveries and long talks about his/her past, long term goals, fondness and limitations for stuff happens, when one is travelling. Actually travelling reveals ugly truths too. Challenges to tackle the hurdles and acceptance of these ugly truths not only get you close but will result in much stronger bond.

  2. Learn about each other

    During travel, couples get to know strengths and weakness of each other. They find out ways to complement on those roles to reach common destination. They learn to trust and rely on each other.

  3. See things which you can’t see as solo travele

    Planning trips together is like compromising for each other and working in harmony. For e.g.- Your husband want to see museum and you want to go boating. In such situation both partners need to find a compromise that pleases both of you. It might mean skipping both, choosing the third or doing both the things on different days and different timings.

  4. Naturalize how he/she treats others

    By others I mean waiters, flight attendants, and other staff. Cultural differences and globetrotting can help you discover his inner hidden traits and personality.

  5. Increases Intimacy

    Travelling together cuts down the workload as well as stress, enough to spark romance. Studies have too proved that couples who travel have better sexual relationship.

  6. Gets to know what you need to do alone and what together

    You don’t need to cling to him/her all the time. It gives you a sense that you are together. He / She just needs a space for himself to get enthralled or relax in the nature.

  7. Build long term memories

    Spending this alone time with spouse is like writing a history. The more you enjoy doing activities with each other, the more stronger connection you build. In future, whenever you will look back at them these memories will always cherish you.

Travel helps to build trust, friendship and respect for each other and these are the most important ingredients for happy married life. So, whatever wherever you are. Start creating memories. That is the only thing going to last with you forever. Cheers!
