All was going well for Samar. He had a promising career in the merchant navy ahead of him, and he was looking forward to his next sailing assignment. Then came along Arisha, and he discovered the love of this life. What could possibly go wrong? 
This is the story of Samar and Arisha and their battle with the ultimate master—Time itself. And how sometimes, the most extraordinary things happen to ordinary people. 
In the ultimate clash between Love, Life and Time, who could possibly win?

FIRSTLY , i thank the author for sending me the book to review 
The book is Very well written, very beautifu
A tale of sacrifice, love and supernaturalism, it also brings forth the human emotions depicting care, hope and rage simultaneously.
I actually lyk the writing style,  simple ,sweet &  intresting 

by seeing the cover ,you will  be tempted to read the entire book

A Pluperfect Gift’ is the story of Samar and Arisha. Samar is an engineer in the merchant navy and on the verge of taking on a new sailing assignment. A ‘chance’ encounter with Arisha changes the course of his ordinary life in an extraordinary manner, not just because she becomes his beloved but also because of the fantastical battle they have to wage against Time itself. 

some quotes from the book
'Life is really simple,but we insist on making it complicated'
 Butterflies count not months but moments, and yet they have time enough

and another about the journey of reaching its end, which stands symbolic of this story itself -

It is too common an Error to invert the Order of Things; by making an End of that which is the Means, and a Means of that which is an End.’

OVERALL RATING :- 4.5/5  ,its a must read

BOOK REVIEW : RAPESCARS... They never heal by Gaurav Sharma

About the book 
Rape Scars They never heal

A girl is raped! Her parents insist to report. Police tries to scuttle the case. Her fathers influence works! Doctor, the fourth man, sees her bare. The defense lawyer encounters with obnoxious questions. As if, she had inveigled the innocent boys. As if, shes the one accused and her violators are seeking justice against her. She feels & experiences being raped in public again. Her lawyer manages to seek conviction! Akriti wins the case but refuses her culprit to have imprisonment.

Why does she do this?
What does she decide then?
Is this the decision of her or raped mind?
Rape Scars is the voice of a rape survivor who thrives to stand against the violation of her persona.

Review :- 
Firstly, i would like to thank the author for sending me the book 
i m impressed by author's way of writing & narrating the story 
The author has delivered the message very clearly 
The women can relate it with themselves , the ermotions 

Rapes happen in every society. It is a disease of sick mind-set. In our society particularly, we understand the gender relation largely as sexual relation between man and woman.

 “RAPESCARS” is a rape survivor’s perspective. Follow a reported case of rape closely. You will learn that in our country getting rape is a lesser ordeal than fighting for the justice.

 The book starts with Akriti, the protoganist,  a young college girl, is raped and undergoes all the atrocities a woman in India undergoes after becoming the victim of such a heinous crime. 
 Her complaint isn’t easily accepted at the police station. Thanks to her father’s influence, she gets to place a complaint and move forward with medical examination where she is subjected to the gory ‘two finger test’. If that wasn’t enough, her reputation is scarred in courtroom. Finally, when it is time for judgement, she requests a plea. What is it? And why is it made? Was she successful?

On a whole, its a good read
My Ratings: 4/5
