“Thank You Love” “…yes, I said, everything in life is uncertain, and it speaks the same.” All human energy comes from that one thought. All the pain that we bear and the joys that we celebrate are the results of our thoughts at any moment. Strange isn’t it? When Akshita was making her choices, Rayan made his. He refused to get over her and chose to own her absence in his heart and mind . Thank You Love describes how sitting on the floor in silence changed the world of “Rayan”. He realized that love is not something that happens between two people, instead it’s an enduring quality within people. He realized that love is not something that you do, but is the way you are. He re-moulds one of the most important event of his life into a spark, re-channelizes it and heads towards something that would later change the course of his life.

My views on the book-
It is a short and simple story written with elegant flow. Dealing with several issues in relations and ways to heal oneself. To look beyond separation and be thankful. Isnt learning all of this is life? yes it is!This book is a light read with so many hidden morals to learn and apply to life. This is the story of two people rayan and akshita- who have one hell of a story- fall in love- distances- misunderstandings- fall apart.
The cover helps in giving an insight about the book. Language and metaphors used inside the story is refreshing and really amazing. this book does keeps you glued till the end. there were few printing mistakes but that can be avoided surely. It may remind you of so many relatable incidents of your very own life.
It is a refreshing book. i will rate it an overall 4/5.

Blurb – ” Twenty-six alphabets, twenty-six names, and twenty-six short stories. Each exploring one unique emotion, taking you into the dark recess of the mind. Some frothy and most of them dark. Most standing alone and some facing a mirror, where the same story comes alive in two different ways, through two different protagonist . Meet myriad characters – from the single-minded prostitute to the man on the railways station bereft of any memory; a woman desperate for a biological child to a dead man’s trial. Meet a jealous lover with a twisted brain and a gay man’s memory of a one-night encounter. Meet twenty-six such characters arrested and sentenced for life inside the pages of a book. Each one leaving an indelible mark on your soul.. ”
My views- This book had been on my list ever since! starting with the cover- it is neatly designed and gives in a feeling of letting go. The cover and the title go hand in hand. It consists of 26 stories, deep and dark to every human emotion. I really like how the author has penned down each story with beauty. The description are detailed and gives you an insight of the story- the description- are appreciable. I’ve read different collection of short stories but this is by far the strongest collection. Few stories are dark but that is what makes this book a unique one! The emotions which are not opened up but are cupped within are chest. It would be injustice to other stories if i said one of them were my favourite- i THOROUGHLY enjoyed this book!
The small drawings which are given in the beginning of the story- are tremendously amazing. The author keeps you hooked and moreover. At times, in story the past& present go hand in hand. Metaphors used is really a wow factor. how brilliantly every story flows like water with punches on the stomach on every ending of the story. I really loved the new aspects brought to life by the author. This book is a gem I rate it an overall 5/5.

Sanjeev Bansal’s exquisite poems are epistles to the past, reflections upon the future and heartbreaking meditations upon the metaphysics of daily transcendence. One of the most subtly imaginative poets, Bansal bravely transcribes his love for the hilly terrains of Shimla into the charged intersections of love and rejection, nature and religion, loss and renewal. His poems are lucid snapshots developed in a subtle amalgam of memory and intuition. Lyrical and linguistically inventive and yet faithful to poesy of European gloom, Bansal investigates complex personal history, family and romantic love in carefully sculpted lines, thereby making his poetry an odyssey at once metaphorically and emphatically real.
MY VIEWS ON THE BOOK-
As rightly said On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it. Jules Renard.
This book is but a gift of natures lyrics to us through the author. It consists of 54 poems- some short and some long. Taking you to the journey of shimla, through his eyes. All the poems are lyrical, natural and flowing. It is a beautiful retreat- giving in different aspects of scenery & imagery with a toss of great use of vocabulary. The author has used great alliteration- connections of human nature to ourselves; looking for us in nature. Trying to heal ourselves through it. Also contrast of human darkness and demons are seen. Few lines just totally blow your mind away- like “the nebula remnant sung its beauty sleep.
My favorite poems are- artist of dreamy portrait.
Shadow of delusion.
Life’s a walking moment.
The beauty of nature is i.e. trees, shrubs, rain, snow, light all of it is compared as his or his love ‘maya’.The poems are soft and delicate, you need to understand the poetry well. Every new poem brings in a new origin of human thinking.the cover is brilliant. I really enjoyed the book I give it an overall- 4/5.
