25996405

BLURB :-
Anusual is the story of Anu Aggarwal, the dusky Delhi girl who went to Bombay and became an international model and then a star with her very first Bollywood movie, Aashiqui, only to chuck it all up and join a yogashram. Coming back to Bombay, she was involved in a horrifying car crash that put her in a coma for twenty nine days. Miraculously, the girl who broke into a million pieces recovered, and put the pieces of her life back together, first taking sanyas and then returning to Bombay to teach yoga. This fascinating story of a woman's self-discovery, a near death experience and amazing recovery is told in a straight from theheart, unbuttoned style, including details of the men in her life, from millionaire jet-setters to superyogis. In the end, as she says, love is all there is.









BOOK REVIEW :-

Is the story of Anu Aggarwal,the Ashiqui gir who caught the fancy of the nation in the 90s and then suddenly disappeared just the way she had arrived in Bollywood - unannounced.
The narrative is so candid that you get surprised at the sheer honesty of it.
She talks of her bold decisions, wrong choices,the dizzying popularity and the entailing perils and the diverse men in her life.
Disillusioned,she sets out to find inner peace.
Her search lands her in a yoga ashram in Uttarakhand. It's here that she meets "Swamiglee' ,the head of the ashram and nurtures A RELATIONSHIP that goes beyond the realm of a disciple and a guru. He initiates her into Vipasana, Karmayoga, the out of bod experience seems to be deeply ingrained as the narrative shifts to third person at places.She refers to herself as "the girl" .The pace of the book is gradual and this lets you understand her thoughts.
The life- threatening accident in her life will force you to think about the unpredictability of life.'
She fights back to normalcy only to give up everything to become a yogini.
OVERALL, THE BOOK MAKES FOR A FASCINATING READ AS IT DELVES INTO THE GLORIFIED LIFE OF A DIVA' AND SEEKS OUT THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH.
