Rain Drops and Caterpillars by Anuradha Prasad






Dealing with first time lessons is no easy task, as they can bring tears, joy, inspiration, in proportions unthinkable to human mind and heart! Still! We learn and move on like those caterpillars who have been subservient for a whole season but were able to transform into beautiful butterflies come tropical rains. Both representing changes -HUGE and PERMANENT! Sometimes we get inspiration from nowhere. Sometimes from the least expected person or someone, we might have despised all our life! Still! We learn and move on…..Are everyday heroes, those people who have their names etched in golden words in the history pages? Or like you and me, who have just set an example by their random acts of kindness? Or those who just by surrendering to a mighty force called destiny? Or by just WALKING OUT of a difficult situation that they no more could put up with? Who are they? Six human emotions and six stories to make you sit up and think if you were that HERO!

Beginning with the book title it gives you a gentle feeling of growing up and learning if you break the components of the title. The cover is really colourful and gives it a nice complete look.

The book contains 6 short stories with lessons we all go through. Such as sublimity, acceptance, courage, compassion,devotion,deceit. The human emotions are often so fragile that learning about them and knowing more will always give you a deeper sense of self.

I Thoroughly enjoyed reading the stories written beautifully with great narration. Each story will probably remind you of an incident that might have happened with you. Simple stories which will blend you in with the authors mind.

Loved reading it throughout my train journey.

overall 3.5/5.
