Book Review – The Jasmine Bloom – by Rajat Narula

The Jasmine Bloom

I believe that in any relationship, trust and love towards each other plays a very important role..Further, the way we communicate our feelings is also vital..In this book, Author portrays the complexities of  various relationships..

Sameer Chadha, a middle aged man, feels bad and worried about various incidents in his life..He couldn’t face problems and dirty politics in his professional life..He thinks that his wife Kavita doesn’t love him anymore and feels bad as his elder daughter treats him as a stranger..His younger daughter is the only person who talks to him more and sees him as a hero..

Kavita feels that Sameer had changed a lot after their love marriage..She feels that he is more concerned about his professional life and doesn’t discuss any problems with her..Both don’t communicate or express their issues and this causes strain in their relationship..

Sameer starts alienating from his family and his affair with his office colleague Ritu (who has an autistic son and abusive husband) creates more problems in his life..The way this affair affects both his personal and professional life is portrayed nicely by the author..The twist in the end of the story makes it very interesting to read..

To be honest, I couldn’t sympathize with Sameer’s character..His extramarital affair couldn’t be justified.. I got more involved with characters and this book is full of emotions..

Overall, I feel that this book is interesting and engaging to read..

My rating is 3.5/5.

Disclaimer: I received a digital copy of book from the author in return for my honest review..I didn’t receive any monetary compensation for the same.
