How I taught my grandmother to read
This’s the first book I read of Durjoy Datta, & I must tell you this was Good to read, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one.
Tie your seatbelts and enjoy some glimpse of the story with me… This’s the story of two people Avanti and Devrat.Avanti was living with her nani in Dehradun after her mother death and she’d not shared good equation with her father. She wanted to become a flight attendant, for joining her job at Indiago Airlines she will have to move in Delhi, her Nani forced her to stay with her father in his house.Devrat was a college drop out boy and struggling singer who wanted to become big in his music career. He lived in Kolkata.Both Avanti and Devrat were heart broken souls, Avanti had huge crush on Devrat. She was his big fan. His songs provided soothing her buried heart.After joining flight attendant job Avanti gets a chance to travel in Kolkata and where does she meet with her Devrat, during his performance and that night they enjoyed their time like they were known each other and both felt some kind of peace in each other’s company.Next day Avanti goes back to Delhi but Devrat surprise her when he board in the same flight to travel with Avanti. In Delhi they spent good time and fall in love with each other.They had been dating each other since one year, and for celebrating their first anniversary they plan to meet each other in Mumbai, because they were sharing a long distance relationship.But destiny had planned something different for them, Devrat meet an accident and after this tragedy he has slipped into coma, but that was not the twist. For knowing the real twist of the story you will have to read this book.Will he come out from coma? What will Avanti do without her Devrat?Now story was full of surprises till the end. I love the last chapter of book so much. If romance is your favourite genre, you should read this once. The story’s second half was better than the first.The first thing I loved about this book, that was its title. I read whole book just to find how this title will justify the story of book. And at last it did well. One thing I haven’t liked in this book, whenever Avanti called Devrat… Puppy (it reminded me Dhadak movie famous dialogue…“Puppy, matlab kutte ka chhota bachcha?”)My Rating- ⭐⭐⭐💫/5
