MY REVIEW


Arun Kumar's MADE OF STARDUSST  A PURSUIT OF LOVE , LIBERTY, AND LIFE   a novella talks about the lives of  four individuals  Eleena, Ramesh, Mithhulia and Anuj s .

Elene ,an engineering graduate has settled in  well- paying job. She is so fond of her grandmother she visits her village at the week end and spends time with her. Her parents want  her to get married .

Ramesh meets Vidya from Delhi and thy are in love. After his graduation he gets a placement with an IT   company. His parents are looking for a    girl suitable for him .

Mithila a chief consultant in the steel industry aged 35 and she meets Radhika a 23 year old intern . They visit  a plant situated n a remote town of North-East India. to develop strategies to solve its  problem.


Anuj works in the CSR wing of an FMGG company m Mumbai.. He goes to Auroville , a small township in Union Territory Pondicherry to study about  meditation namely Vipassana. He is in love with Alia .


The book deals with their happiness as well as pain , their fate and relationship with their parents. Their anxious moments in their respective  profession are widely discussed.

The beauty of the tale is that the author has chosen the MCs all educated highly placed professionals in the urban backdrop very much contemporary and at the verge of getting married. At this vulnerable stage they take to  many a good activities  in spending their time..

 I am happy to read about the fondness of  Elene towards her  grandmother Anne
Mithila childhood days could melt our   heart.. Her desire to adopt a girl child is a good idea.

The great  solace in reading this book is  it  talks about the youth touching the good aspects of life. Like social service , attending meditation classes for relieving stress. . The story is neat and soul centric many times  conveying several messages.

The tittle and sub tittle are good. Cover design by Hammad is  nice.
I like the author Arun’s definition of love
One is in love when she is ready to prioritize her partner’s needs over hers.

What i feel is that there is no depth  in this social drama and the plot is   thin and events are   predictable The language is   poetic, some times mundane. .Editing needs improvement.

The book is light read for romance fans.

My score 4/5

Disclaimer I thank the author  for having sent me the book free in exchange of my honest and unbiased review.
