BOOK REVIEW: Ananya: A Journey Towards Light by Urmila Deshpande

"Her real parents were dead by the time she was five years old. Her grandfather certified her as cursed. A period of fifteen years has passed, raised by adoptive parents, Ananya became a swan from an ugly duckling.

And then suddenly one day, she finds herself going through a transformation. What follows is a series of mysterious
incidents, a strong force of destiny, propelling her towards the unknown, something that is beyond logic or reasoning.

In this journey towards light, she meets people who introduce her to the loving divine energy and also the dark energy of the devil.
Ananya, an intelligent, logical young girl, finds herself on
the verge of insanity. She cannot understand these mysterious forces. Is the divine pouring her love on her or it is her mind which playing tricks at the behest of the devil?"

BOOK REVIEW: - This is a story of Ananya ,who is the protagonist, the story revolves around her.
The book is divided into sections ,which narrates the story as said by Ananya,

Paulomi - Ananya's best friend
Shobhana - her  Mother , who adopted her 

Anand -  Shobhana's husband ,they both divorsed when Ananya was small and after that Shobhana only raised Ananya

As it is clear from the blurb, Ananya was very small, when a tragic accident happened ,she lost both her parents. She was raised by Shobhana, who was not actually her real Mom, by she respects her a lot.
Parents at times become god for children, so much faith they have in us.

Ananya is Atheist, she dont believe in God. When her friend  Paulomi, called her for Durga Puja ,she initially refused her, but later accepted it for her sake  , there she felt something amazed, At night she cried & saw a dream where she saw a lady ,after crossing the tunnel there is light, she felt a connection  with someone.

Ananya start behaving differently & remain disturbed .She was claimimg to be in contact with dead people, in her dream and was not happy with the situation.Our soul is always in touch with our spirit guide.Anu was very agitated over not being able to connect with her spirit guide.

So they didnt get to know whether Anu is trying to reach someone or someone is trying to reach her. Whether Anu is mentally sick or otherwise.Whether what she is feeling is real or illusion.

Simply A heart-touching tale of a young girl blend with emotions. 
There is suspense as you turn the page.
Very nice read,I will highly recommend it to all my friends.I would rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
