People rarely get a chance to correct their wrong-doing. And even if they get a chance whether they correct it properly or not it is up to the realization of their wrong deeds. Partly self-help and partly fiction looking cover of "Second Chance" forced me to read the blurb of the book. And the book came out to be a fictional work with underlining importance on benevolence and humanity.

"Second Chance" is a story of successful businessman Shekhar Kapoor. Shekhar Kapo

It's all about what goes around comes around... a very amazing theme actualised and visualised in the form of a novel by Dr. Sandeep. I read this novel a few days ago. i really liked the idea of creating a character and fusing almost all the badness in him and tyrannised by some invisible qua science qua religious authority the guy just changes his colours... true to the concept, it's about the second chance that Shekhar gets and he capitalises on it very wonderfully! A very good read and I hope ...more

The central character of this novel is Shekar. Who is a careless rich person doesn't bother about anything in is life. One day he died and then novel takes a turn of supernatural and fantasy. That he had given a second chance to understand life better. Though the story seems like simple but reveals many interesting facts about life. Once we understand the worth of life we commit ourselves to do better things instead of evil. A good read for me!

‘Second Chance’ is a story of a spoiled brat Shekhar Kapoor. He is the only son of a rich business and future owner of the company. He never cared for anything or anyone. He misbehaved with the poor, used the power of money to threaten and bring down the others. He goes through life cheating and insulting people. He wants to win everything but he cannot win death by his money.

The book conveys a moral message. The illustration of hell and punishments sends a chill down the spine. Whatever you do

Second Chance is a fiction novel by Dr Sandeep Jatwa. A well written story which takes you to places and when I started reading this story, I was totally amazed by its sequence that I could not believe myself that I was already in page 75.

The story is about a rich businessman by name Shekhar Kapoor who did not do anything good in his life be it with treating his employees or his ailing dad. He conspired with a person and acquires hi competitor brand. Just then he meets with an accident. He goes

The story is really one in many. It is about a rich rude man who does everything for money and profit. He destroy almost everything which comes in the path of his success. He got many chances to correct his mistakes but he ignores everything whatever comes in between his way of success. And then he was called "in the City of Justice" where he was been told about his mistakes. This is such a beautiful piece of writing. I loved reading this novel.

We often make decision in our life without thinking its pros and cons. From these some of the decisions are spontaneous and some are made by our nature and ego. We hardly ever get a chance to reform it, but even if we get a chance then how we amend our mistakes /decisions is something worth to think. This book revolves around the same scenario. I have received this book from the author so at first, I would like thank and congratulate him.

Life gives us many chances. But this book is about second chance. Life is a continuum. It never stops for evil as well as good persons. Do people change? Maybe.

Shekhar is a businessman whose father is paralytic. He is a selfish, nasty and ruthless person. He is totally indifferent to feelings of others. He does not believe in marriage. He needs new woman daily and does not want to be tied to one. He has a new manager Manish

Thank you Vinfluencers for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.

Here are my thoughts on it:
I liked reading this book. It was a very thoughtful and a moralistic read.
The story centers on Shekhar who is a proud businessman, selfish in his demeanor. He only cares about his materialistic possessions.
He starts receiving mysterious warnings from a place called The City of Justice telling him to change his way of life, however ignoring them all, he continues to follow his arrogant hear

This book begins with a nightmare faced by a Rich and Successful Businessman Shekhar Kapoor who is the owner of Aerowalk Shoe Company earlier owned by his dad Balraj Kapoor. The nightmare involves a mysterious phone call which can not be rejected and needs to be picked up by Shekhar while he drives his favourite Cadillac at a speed of 104 km per hour on the way to his company. The black screen of his cellphone displayed the words - First Warning. He became scared as black clouds

Review By Sohinee Dey

The entire plot of the book is almost summarised in the synopsis.

What is This Book All About?

Second Chance by Sandeep Jatwa is a story about a man named Shekhar Kapoor who happens to be a successful businessman. Along with being successful, another trait that he possesses is of arrogance. He thinks of himself as a high and mighty person who can look down his nose at everyone and regards all of his employees and the people who he meets as inferiors. He doesn't respect anyone

My thanks to "Vinfluencers" for providing me a copy of "Second Chance" in exchange for my honest review.

"Second Chance" by Dr. Sandeep Jatwa is a tale with a moral; it is the story of a billionaire who is mean, rude and all things negative, surely bound to rot in hell, getting a second chance to atone for his sins.

“Second Chance” has a good plot that is quite relevant in the times of rising cutthroat-ism and falling human values. The protagonist, Shekhar Kapoor, is portrayed as the embodiment of

'Second Chance' was easily the quickest read of the year for me. Its fast paced, filled with descriptions (sometimes too much) and weaves in the story of a not so ordinary guy who tries to fix his past mistakes.

I always enjoy a book with a flawed protagonist. Second Chance's Shekhar is exactly the type. With just page 1, I had started hating this lead to no extent. He is vain, arrogant, disrespectful and every other vile thing a rich obnoxious guy is. I would actually consider this an am

“A small cottage wherein laughter lives is worth more than a castle full of tears. ”

This is a book which tells us something which we know already but have refused to keep in our minds. 

Shekhar is a very good businessman. He is the owner of a big shoe making company. But he refuses to love people and is, thus, not loved by people. Something happens what changes him drastically. As a result, people around him change for him too.

must say that after a long time I read this type of book with such a unique concept.

The readers will not just enjoy the book but the book also has the power to make readers think and teach a lesson.

With the changing plot the book unfolds lots of twist and turns. As the new chapter unfolds it seems more interesting.

The most special thing about the book is that how it speaks about love, how love can change someone’s life and how it can change a person from bad to good.

I enjoyed reading the book, it was extremely intriguing and fascinating. What I appreciate the most about this book is the inclusion of the greatest morale in it i.e. Do good karmas and it comes back to you. No good deed goes waste. The first half of the book is good, overall its very fast moving. There might be some instances when the book gets dull and there is a feeling that you might feel that certain things have been overdone. In my opinion, the city of justice part has been over exaggerate ...more

I literally cried. I liked it very much, it was a wonderful read. In second half, I cried and it was tears of joy. I started the novel and I finished it and something changed in this period, something in me. This book makes you feel alive. It makes you feel love. Loved it.

Language is wonderful and scenes of hell gave me goosebumps. Author would have researched to write the punishments.

Everyone should read it. Must must read. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Indian fiction is on the rise. In past months, it is not about the amount of books I have read specifically written by the Indian authors, but the quality of writing style is appreciable.Second Chance by Dr. Sandeep Jatwa is one of them.

Written elegantly, the story is about a successful businessman, Shekhar Kapoor, who's account of good deeds is lacking depth is in negative. For him it is all about money, deceiving and exploiting other person's weaknesses, insulting them and duping them. One day

The plot of the book is doused in ‘What goes around comes around’ theme. The story digs deep into the meaning of life and how Karma is ever merciless as well as rewarding to one. We have a character who is used to getting his way around with people tagging him under the gargantuan banner of a bully. But Karma has a way of befalling sorrow and grief upon even the richest of souls and this is where lies the nub of the story. I should like to think that the book could have been much better.
