    An anthology which has a mix of some real and some fiction stories written by experienced and newbies. The book has been done in a simple manner yet falls short of expectations time and again. The editing blemishes are hard to ignore and the half baked and mistake prone stories are just too difficult to handle at times. The book has some stories which have been scripted well and the outcome is appreciable. Overall it lacked enthusiasm and flair and left a lot to be desired. The book needs more polishing and a better outcome is expected. An average outcome from the complete experience.

    It’s been two weeks since I have had a copy of ‘You, Me ‘n’ Zindagi’ and in between breaks from work I’ve been able to read a few stories. Today morning, I lost my copy, wonder where? So I thought of sharing my take on the five stories I read.The Second Life- This short story by Harpreet Makkar kicked off quite well giving me hopes of some good climax. It did have suspense and I was too eager to know what happened later on but somehow the ending seemed to be a little rushed and abrupt. Perhaps, the author could have given it some more finishing.Time Flies Love Stays- Nehali Lalwani has tried to convey the message of eternal love through her story. It is about a father narrating his daughter ‘how I met your mother?’ and getting emotional about his dead wife.Just Stay By My Side- This is the story when the book begins to take a grip. A soulful story about how two people fall in love, how differences create a rift in their relationship and how they get back to being together again. It’s an emotional story and will leave a lump in your throat for sure. Shalini, good job!Maya- Swagnikaa has carved a dark story which does seem to be a nice read but it felt a little incomplete. I wanted to know more, it’s good to leave the story mysterious but some could be solved. A story touches on an issue highly prevalent in India, sexual harassment and molestation is a common crime here but is always kept under wraps. Probably, that’s why there has been no solution to it. Overall, it was indeed a nice read.Papa-The book does end with a good story about society, how it sees an infertile woman and how years of commitment go in vain just because a woman is unable to deliver a baby. Moreover, this story will take you to some amazing scenes of Kashmir. The author, Pulkit Gupta has depicted a social issue in a wonderful manner.I have also read Aparajita’s story but since I’ve read it just once I am unable to review it. On the first read, it did appear to be fine. The plot may be an average one but the description of the characters and events has been done well. That’s all I can say in my single reading.So yes, now that I have talked about the 6 stories the review should come to an end, right? That is because I lost it even before I could complete it. But the thing is I am not done yet, there is something I have to say and that is about editing. I, as an editor, know how typical the job of editing is. I understand that editing is a thankless job and errors have their way of erupting in the story but if there’s a house that is taking the responsibility of publishing stories then it should take care of all this. The biggest problem our industry is facing today is that there are so many writers and there is heavy exploitation. There are some who are desperate to get published but what we are not getting here is that the quality is reducing day by day. They did have the capital to print the books but may be they ignored that they need to spend some money on good editorial team as well. They forgot that it isn’t just about publishing a book, it is about publishing dreams; it isn’t about making money in present but to sustain till the end. I shouldn’t be saying all this, I am not supposed to, atleast as an author who is always in the search of a publisher but as a reviewer, I believe it’s my duty to tell people what they are going to have in store. There were n number of times while reading this book, I felt as if it wasn’t worth 150 bucks. It could have been priced a bit less especially when there is no editing done, at all.This isn’t a personal hit on someone or the house. Plus, I have just read half the book, maybe the editing is better in the next half. It’s my genuine feedback so that such mistakes are taken care of in near future. To the publishing house, please do take it as a booster for your upcoming projects so that in the coming months, anyone else or even I don’t get a chance to point out editing errors.To all the contributors, congratulations for getting published. It is indeed a tough task to get a publisher, I hope to see your full fledged works in my hand in future.

    1) The Second Life – Harpreet Makkar I Rating: (2.5/5)The Second Life is an emotional story of a beautiful woman. This story from beginning to the end the story stands perfect while generating interest among the readers. This story marks a good beginning to the book. 2) Time Flies Love Stays – Neha Lalwani I Rating: (2.5/5)It is a story from the past which has been narrated in a beautiful manner. This story too is interesting and a bit emotional. Also, this story too is interesting to read and captures utmost attention while reading. 3) Peregrination – Aparajita Dutta I Rating: (3/5)It is a story of Sourindhri and Triborgo who are deeply made in love. But things change with time. What this change has in store for the two is what you need to find from the story. The story is well-framed. 4) Maya – Swagnikaa Roy I Rating: (2.5/5)This story bring highlights the struggles and difficult life of a girl Maya. Maya at a young age witnessed household fights between her parents, dejection from her friends and sexual harassment from her uncle. This story is strong and comprehensible in the beginning but falls loose in the end. Everything happens too quickly in the story. The authoress could have moved ahead with the same strength with which she began the story. Yet the initial part of the story catches heart.5) Just stay by my side – Shalini Katyal I Rating: (3/5)To be frank, this story is really, really interesting. It is a story of Preeti and Rohit who see each other at a book launch and soon fall in love. Things go pretty in the beginning but turn upside down. What happens to their relation? Does it continues or it ends? Find it yourself from the book. It’s wonderful story that I enjoyed to the core. 6) Love will find you – Nilesh Gowardhan I Rating : (2/5)It is a good story and an enjoyable one. It is a story of Nandini and Rohit who met in auto. In the initial part Nandini shows not much attention and interest in Rohit. But they patch-up and experience love affair. Their love turns them into a couple.7) A Story of Revenge – Ila Garg I Rating: (3/5)This story of Ila is a crime fiction and not a love story. Aryan Kapoor a millionaire is killed and his younger brother Ayaan takes custody of his son Arun. Arun knows that Ayaan has plot the killing of his father and he then plans revenge. The way the story has been penned down is fabulous. Good work Ila! 8) Why Smoke Cigarettes when there’s Oxygen – Abhijit Dahegaonkar I Rating: (2/5)This story is of a boy who smokes and invites health problems. But in due course of life, he realizes that smoking is indeed injurious to health and then changes himself. Neither the beginning nor the ending of the story is interesting. On top there are too many grammatical errors in the story which switches off a reader’s attention from it. 9) The Man of Wisdom – Subhanil Banerjee I Rating: (2/5)The story teaches one the lessons of being honest. It is a story of a bright boy Sabyasachi who thinks of a robbery in a bank. He, along with three others executes this plan. Why did a bright boy plan such a cheap thing is what you need to search in the book. I would call it a partially interesting story. 10) I can never forgive you – Purendu Chatterjee I Rating: (3/5)It’s a long and beautifully written story of a girl Nupur who spots a bomb blast. She helps the victims and takes them to hospital. Meanwhile her husband informs her about the findings of Dr. Lawrence of his NGO who goes to South Africa for a research work which is linked to something in the present time of Nupur. What shocking thing does Dr. Lawrence finds and what link does it has? You will get it from the story in the book. Although it’s a long story but still it’s an interesting one. 11) Silent Beackons – Souvick Mukherjee I Rating: (3/5)This one is a mind-blowing story which holds a reader’s attention till the end. It’s a story of Arnab who goes on a trip to Roopkund for trekking with his friends. There he meets a girl who sells him woods and cannot get her out of his thoughts. The end of the story is given a touch of humanity. It’s an unpredictable story. 12) Papa – Pulkit Gupta I Rating: (3/5)It is a story of a married couple whose relation soon turns weird. This story has emotions perfectly mentioned in it. The story truly won my heart. It gives a lovely and happy end to this anthology. This anthology has a very little to praise. The editing of the book is very poor and there are lots of mistakes in the book. Those mistakes really turn down the interest in the reader. Stories by Aparijita, Shalini, Ila, Purendu, Shovick and Pulkit are wonderful. Apart from the stories of these five, others too are good. Over-all it’s a book with lots of typographical errors. Considering the goods and bads of the book, I would rate it with 2.5 out of 5.
