Youth fades away and so does life!

In the book, Kilol-Brruges Express: The Fading Nomad, the author has bridged a breathtaking journey between Kilol, a small village located at a distance of 60 kilometers from New Delhi,
and Bruges, a high-end city in Belgium.

The story starts when Chikki, a dusky colored twelfth grader, wakes up to the persistent calling of her mother, who like most of the women in her village wants her daughter to take her education very seriously, but that only with the drea

'Kilol-Bruges Express: The Fading Nomad' is aptly named which narrates Chikki’s journey.

The journey starts with a void space in the tender heart without any passions, desires or targets in life. The traits get instilled in heart time & again as Chikki’s journey unfolds. And the best part is, neither her thoughts nor her actions instill these traits, but her impulsive dreams & unplanned encounters do the job. Though the journey is not conventional, author tried to define a pattern to thes

Kilol-Bruges Express by Ackhat Deoli is a short, lucid and deep read which describes an interview of a successful author who lived a bold life. It is about a woman who is from a poverty stricken village and her lost both her parents, her struggles, her journey. Will she ever be able to follow her passion?
Her journey is set to be an inspiration for all those women who struggle against the societal norms to find themselves. I just wanted the book to be lengthier and more stark with a bit more emp

It is an average book. The story is left hanging at the end. It is better to give a closure to your readers.

Full disclosure : I received this book via giveaway

Things I liked :
1. Awesome writing style : Some lines like "Silence echoed through microphone", "If I bargain, does it mean I am poor" were simply gold.
2. The character development.

Things I disliked:
1. It seems like book has been cut short intentionally. Some characters were simply left hanging. And
2. Reader was left with lot of questions: (view spoiler)

Got the book as a giveaway, thanks to the author for it. Will write the review once I complete it.

Edit : Completed. A nice effort for sure. It was smooth, and since it was a short one I didn't likely wanted to keep it down too else maybe I'd have.

The story was simple and lovely, it seemed all realistic. The main character had some depth, as I believe, strengthening of the protagonist is very important for a book, you should feel him, his actions, his words. The writing was somewhat naive, ther

I totally loved the way the author has written the book! And the best part is that the perception of life changes each time you read this book. This book is going to be the game-changer of how books are written and perceived these days especially in the local audiences. Kudos to the author for such a brilliant job!

The book is in the form of an interview. An award winning film director, Mrs. Kumar shares the journey of Chikki, a girl from a small place called Kilol, 60 kms from Delhi and her journey to Bruges, a posh city in Belgium through the entire book in the interview. Chikki lost her father when she was 10 and her mother at the age of 17 which is the stage where Chikki's story starts in the book. She's a girl who has dreams of going out of that small place for further studies and her mother catapults ...more

[Note: I won this book in Goodreads giveaway and this is my honest review of the book]

"If I am trying to bargain, does that make me poor ?"

"Okay. Do one thing, the next time you cross a road, don't look left or right. Whatever is predestined, will happen!"

This is a women fiction cum travelogue but a bit of different kind. I really liked the way the author presented the story.

The story is about Chikki from a small village Kilol to becoming a famous writer director. sh

Gotta say wasn't interested much when read the preface of the story but the content was entirely different. An interesting interpretation style by the writer, credit for that. The characters were intriguing and in terms contrasted from each other. But the end did disappoint me thats all I got to complain about.
