My Review
Prabudh lost his parents at a very young age. With unrelenting determination and hard work, he studies, grabs the qualifications and starts his own business, which flourishes to ascend him as a successful businessman. His life changes when he meets Tapasya and Kaumudi. While Tapasya is to become a part of his life Kaumudi becomes a part of his business. Twist in the tale occurs when Tapasya suspects Prabudhand leaves him. The second half of the tale is full of twists and suspense.

Well, that much is about the summary of the story. Being a self published book, I'm not dwelling much into the technicalities of proofreading and typesetting except that a few chapters are repeated in the print copy. The narration is simple. The book is perfect for first time readers. Storyline cannot offer much uniqueness. A third person narration could have been a better choice because when someone says I'm good looking with good body, girls were behind me and things like that it sounds like bragging. The revenge story too was not convincing. I liked the way, the word ponytail becomes an important part of the story.

Overall the book is simple and an easy read for the beginners. A round of developmental edit would have taken it to another level. I appreciate the author's effort in doing everything alone
