On the jacket :

To destroy great EVIL, GOOD has to shed tears of blood.

Rudransh Kashyap is a self-made billionaire and man of high moral fiber. His life is shattered when he returns home one day to find that his prodigy, his 16-year-old grandson, Aarush, has been arrested and accused of a brutal gang rape. It is easy to say, “Kill the Rapist” but what if the accused is your child?

This case takes an unprecedented turn when Aarush’s identity is made public on social media. Rudransh finds himself living a nightmare as he fights against tremendous odds to get justice for Aarush, to save him and to bring him back home… But what if the unthinkable is true? Can Rudransh save his grandson, or will he end up fighting a different battle altogether?

Quick Review :

#IAm16ICanRape deals with sensitive at the same time explosive (if I may add so) topic and yet there is not a single point where it backfires. Author Kirtida Gautam has done a commendable job.

Full Review :

Rudransh Kashyap is a self made billionaire who runs RK-JEE an IIT coaching institution. He lives with his wife and grandson Aarush. Aarush is beautiful, yes beautiful 16 years old genius. He is smart, well read, practices Krav Maga and Taekwondo, helps poor and underprivileged, in short a good boy. His parents live in USA. On his 16th birthday his grandfather gifts him a Jaguar, all in all he is living a pretty happy life. Until, the day he is accused of a heinous crime – Gang Rape and thrown into a Rehabilitation centre.

Rudransh kashyap, his grandfather leaves no stone unturned in proving his innocence. But, one day Rudransh learns something about the Rape case that leaves him broken. Thereafter, Rudransh kashyap is a man on a mission. Mission to change the juvenile justice system.

Normally, while reading a book I get a brief idea of how my review will shape up. But this book left me blank and to a extent sad. I had to take couple of days to digest the whole thing and not let my emotions over power this review, but I failed. #IAm16ICanRape stays with you for days. Author Kirtida Gautam has dedicated this book to Nirbhaya. This book left me with same emotions I had during December 2012.

Rating :

****/5

P.S.

At first look you might feel the book is too lengthy, but once you start reading, you will realise the reason behind its length and will appreciate it.

P. S. S

I like the way author has titled the chapters and instead of starting with first chapter, she started with chapter nine.

Book Blurb

Story of a girl Meera, who is unwittingly drawn into a conflict from where she finds it difficult to emerge unscathed. It’s her journey from being a simple, medical graduate belonging to a middle class family to the uncharted territories of corruption and caste based politics. Her path is crossed by the two men, both compelling yet completely contrasting characters, who are forever going to change her life. If it is Aman who can challenge her ideals and defy her resolves, and makes her the person she finally becomes, it is Abhay’s sublime love which enables her to go through the vicissitudes of life. It’s also the story of her loss as well as triumph against her own demons to find her true self.

Simple yet beautiful lyrics.

Few days back I was thinking about lyrics as in general, and I remembered a stanza of the song Pyaar Kar from the movie Dil Toh Pagal Hai. Dil Toh Pagal Hai had a superb album, all songs are not just melodious but meaningful too. What I mean to say is lyrics are very interesting.

Full Lyrics

Hey hey oh ho ho ho ho
Hmmm hmmm la la la la la
Chaand ne kucch kaha raat ne kuchh suna
Chaand ne kucch kaha raat ne kuchh suna
Tu bhi sun bekhabar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar
Aayi hai chaandni mujhse kehne yehi
Aayi hai chaandni mujhse kehne yehi
Meri gali mere ghar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar

Chaand ne kucch kaha raat ne kuchh suna
Tu bhi sun bekhabar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar
la la la la la la la

Kya kahoon kya pata baat kya ho gayi
Dillagi ye mere saath kya ho gayi hai
Ek ishaara hai ye
Dil pukaara hai ye
Ek ishaara hai ye
Dil pukaara hai ye
Isse chura na nazar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar

Chaand ne kucch kaha raat ne kuchh suna
Tu bhi sun bekhabar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar
Hey hey ah ha ha ha aa

Hai kaun kya khabar koi to hai magar
Sapnon mein hai kahin aata nahin nazar
Main yahaan vo vahaan
Aa rahi phir yahaan
Main yahaan vo vahaan
Aa rahi phir yahaan
Aawaaz ksiki magar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar

Chaand ne kucch kaha raat ne kuchh suna
Tu bhi sun bekhabar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar
la la la la la la la

Jispe hum mar mite usko pata bhi nahin
Oh ho jispe hum mar mite usko pata bhi nahin
Kya gila hum karein vo bewafa bhi nahin
Humne jo sun liya usne kaha bhi nahin
Kehde zara soch kar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar
Hey hey ah ha ha ha aa
la la la la la la la

Chaand ne kucch kaha raat ne kuchh suna
Tu bhi sun bekhabar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar
Aayi hai chaandni mujhse kehne yehi
Aayi hai chaandni mujhse kehne yehi
Meri gali mere ghar pyaar kar
Oh ho ho pyaar kar
Hey hey la la la la la
Ho ho hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm

Pyaar kar
Ho ho ho pyaar kar
Pyaar kar
Ho ho ho pyaar kar

The particular stanza I was thinking about is

Jispe hum mar mite usko pata bhi nahin
Oh ho jispe hum mar mite usko pata bhi nahin
Kya gila hum karein vo bewafa bhi nahin
Humne jo sun liya usne kaha bhi nahin

What beautiful and simple way to express one sided love . Don’t you think so?

Anand Bakshi saab salute to you.
