Review :

I received this book from V Influencers in exchange of an honest and unbiased review.

Shekhar Kapoor, a successful businessman and owner of Aerowalk, has done all the wrong things throughout his life. He is known to be arrogant, money loving, dirty schemer. He is used to get his way with women either by threatening their jobs or pouring out money. Mr. Balraj Kapoor, his father, a man of great personality was the one who had established the business but was now bed ridden, the only signs of survival being the sound of him breathing. Although ever since Shekhar took his father’s place, the company had been increasing and improving, the people working under him suffered his ill treatment. He appointed and promoted people based on extra service than their capabilities. But one must always keep in mind how powerful Karma is. It spares none. And no amount of money could save Shekhar from what happened next. It all started one day withan awkwardly disturbing call from so called the City of Justiceand receives his first warning to drop all misdoings and start afresh. But Shekhar was tooegoistic and ignorant to do so which ended up with him receivingmore warning and more ignorance and then finally an accident. When he opens himself dead and somewhere far from the human civilisation, he is taken to the God of Justice and Bookkeeper; he is made to rememberand rewatch all his wrong doings and punished for that.A long list of sins starting with when Shekhar was sixteen and was driving a car intoxicated. He had ran the car over someone’s leg and on opposing had beaten that poor fellow’s father. And it was only the beginning for the list goes all the way to each and every horrible behaviour –

  • he had demoted a devoted, loyal and responsible person, Kailash, from his work because of unethicalreasons.
  • He used his position to compel women to make physical contact with him.
  • He didn’t promote Unnati Sharma, despite of her deserving it just because he liked her.
  • He had wrongly seized Feetland Shoe Company from Mr. Ashutosh Upadhyay forcing him to lead life like a beggar.
  • He insulted an old female beggar and pointed out she would be of help in reducing the population just by ending her own life.
  • He was sentenced for not serving his father and not fulfilling his although he had thought to do so, he did not do it.
  • He was sentenced for not helping others, for selfish behaviour and for hundreds of other crimes.

By then he had finally understood how monstrous he has been and regretted not realising that sooner. He begged for a second chance which he got only because of the limitless love of his mother. He wakes up to find himself lying in the hospital bed and resolves to correct his every mistake. Initially when he discloses his experience to two of his closest people, one says it’s NDE or Near Death Experience while the other, a doctor dismisses the theory and describes it to be a mental illness.

Will he be able to turn every sin to help for the people? Is yes then how?What was the experience he had gone through in his 2 mins of death? What is NDE really? Do you believed in it’s existence?

I must say the concept of the book was intriguing. Thoughat some point I found it to be rather childish or unnecessarily descriptive, the changes Shekhar went through was quite inspiring. The book pulled out two contrasting characters of the human, one who works hard yet doesn’t get the deserved and the other who woos and pleases the boss to acquire high scores. But then again kamra is always there!

Karma is a very strong word. Some people believe it while some fear. Life is so very delightful to lead when in the bright side of happiness than under the choking covers of wealth.
