REVIEW:
The first story “ A DAY BEFORE MY DIVORCE” : The story as the name suggest revolves around Vikram and Disha are on verge of getting divorce but fate has decided something else.A sweet romantic read and nice ending,as it definitely adds a nice start to the book.
The second story “LET’S TURN OLDIES”: The story is about and old guy teaching lesson to youngster.It has nice thought to it but I felt the story was too short felt a little less of emotions.
The third story “THEFT”:  As the name suggest the story is about a girl who steals money, but there is a twist in end.Though the story is very nice I found it a very abrupt ending and few things were left hanging.
The fourth story “GRANNY’S LAST GIFT OF LOVE” : It’s a story of a guy who is asked to join his uncle for the treatment of his Granny.It’s a beautiful touching story and so far my faviourite.A story completely filled with emotions.
The fifth story “THE FIRST LOVE” : The story revolves around a guy who fell in love in school and shy guy who couldn’t have the guts to propose the girl he loves but fate has something else stored for them.It is a soft cute bubbly love story with a nice ending
The sixth story “THE IMPOSSIBLE TRUTH”:  The story revolves around Madhu and his past.The story was able to create suspense but I didn’t liked its ending.I wanted to know what happened after the truth got reveled.
The seventh story “A COUNTRY WITH 27 OTHER COUNTRIES” :  The story is about a foreigner and his visit to India and what all does he find here.It has a message in the story.
The eighth story “AFTER COLLEGE” : It’s a story about a girl who gets married and about her responsibilities and what all changes she had to go through after her college.The story is very nice, nice emotions invoked.
The ninth story “ONE WILD NIGHT” : The story reminds me of Hindi Proverb ‘Jaise ke saath taisa’ .I totally loved it,it’s hilarious It will definitely make you laugh .
The tenth story “AND GOD SAID YES!”: It’s a story about couple who is expecting their first child and the girls mom being casteist.I loved the story but i was disappointed as my book had half page print missing.

The twelfth story “THE GROOM”: The story revolves around a girl who has just given her final year graduation exam and her family wants to marry her off leaving her ambitions.The story shows the old Indian mentality.Overall a very good read.
The thirteenth story “THE MISUNDERSTANDING”: Its a story of two friend where one wishes birthday to other and the responds rudely and then comes sepration.It is a story to think, and has message that whenever you get into fight with your friends leave your go aside and clear out the misunderstanding.
The fourteenth story “FLOWERS OF HOPE”: The story is about a girl who comes across a baby and what she has to go through.Its a heart touching story.
The fifteenth story “KARMA RETURNS”: Its a story of a rich spoilt brat who end up doing a bad deed and then Karma returns.Its a nice suspense story.A nice read though.
Since it’s the first book of author,Vishal has been able to put forth all the emotions needed in this book.I have loved the 1st , 4th , 5th ,9th and 14th.The best part of the book is he has collected some awesome thoughts of different people, which are apt for every story.  My favourite lines
“Sometimes I drop my spoon” said the little boy.
“I do that too,” said the old man.
The little boy whispered, “I wet my pants”.
“I do that too,” laughed the little old man.
“I often cry” said the little boy.
The old man nodded. “So do I”
“But the worst of all” said the boy.
“It seems grownups don’t pay attention to me.”
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
“I know what you mean,” said the little old man.
The Downpart of the book was the stories in the first half had more emotions than in other.Then the tenth story had a half page missing and two very small short story apart from that a nice read.
