Title : Love No Matter What
Author : Komal Ahuja
Blurb :Naina and Manish are waiting for their second child as excitedly as Khushi waits for her sibling. Their life takes an unexpected turn when Naina gives birth to an intersex child.
Everyone will ask if it is a boy or a girl. What are we supposed to say?
Manish doesn’t know how to handle the situation, and his family worries more for the world than the child who Naina names Devi. Naina fears that the family might not accept Devi, forcing her into leading a frugal life, dancing on the streets for earning a livelihood.
Will Naina be able to fight the world and give her child the life she truly deserves?
Devi also has a Dad she adores. Is Naveen really her dad or is there something more to this beautiful relationship?
Love, No Matter What! is set in Rajasthan, and gives you a peep into the world of the transgenders and the intersex. It makes us wonder: Are they different from us, or are they just as human as we are?
Discover as you read how love prevailed when all else failed.
My view: A story of an intersex. How many of us are familiar with this term and how many of us compare this term with the transgender.While someplace are being provided to transgenders nowadays, authoress brings a beautiful story for her readers which covers the story of an intersex, her success and the hurdles she come across with the support of the love showered on her.
The story-line that authoress has designed is full of ups and downs.At every next turn,she has something interesting to serve to readers.And to top it, the theme she has chosen is very rare to find in market.And when she steps ahead to choose a different theme, she courageously walks down the path to do justice with it in every manner.She, through this book not only narrates a heart-warming story but also conveys a message to reader which is required to be adopted by each and everyone in order to bring equality in every aspect.
She not for a single moment diverts from her track.She traces the bouncy rides of the protagonist’s life in an order which makes an interesting read for the reader and at the same time makes it comfortable by not involving unnecessary details and events.Although not familiar with the events happening with the protagonist, and the life-events of transgender or intersex unknown to the world, not for a single moment I felt like story is artificially designed.There are feelings and emotions of multiple characters attached with this story.One could feel involved and part of the story at every facet.
A fast pacing novel with authoress’ simple and artistically portrayed words.One could easily complete this book in a single sit and found himself drenched in pool of emotions.A very-well crafted story.
The only loophole I found in this book is the lack of proper editing.
An inspiring story which can change the mindset of people bringing a positive change for the world to grow.RECOMMENDED!
