The reading of such books serves the double purpose of enlightenment as well as entertainment leading to empowerment.

Santhosh Sivaraj has crafted THE BLUE MOON DAY with powerful stroies of hope amidst of doubt and dismay peace and happiness inspite of strained relationship and forgiveness with heartening twists and turns.

There are totally 5 stories captioned in the following order.


The last chapter THE BLUE MOON DAY carries the revelation of suspense that gives all the surprise as well as the latetst position of the main characters.

The Pizza Engeineer , Abhinav Sharma learns his lessons through Mr.Pillai who has to select him for a job. This story is told in a ludicrous manner I laugh a lot when I read this . 

The Messenger tells the story of Deepak and his love for Priya. This story starts with a humourous note and turns in to a social drama involving the strained relationship between the couple and how they manage to come out of the web forms the rest of the story.

Like this other stories also involve so much melodrama and struggles of Mcs are given in a nice way to make the reading a seamless and sober experience.The down to earth charectors are ethced so well we can easily relate to them. I like the language which is simple, fresh and direct. The beutiful narrative prose and the story teller in the author make the book a pageturner.

The most important philosphical and wise pearls which I want to jot down are as follows.

Study you before you study anything

Nature has his own way of conveying messages.

You can find your real individulaity only when you come out of this comfort zone.

If you decide to be happy , life identifis all the hidden happiness around you.

The pace is even and at no point of time it is dragged and there are suffienct twists and turns to engage yourself .

This book holds the stories  of ambition, willpower generation gap , happiness and sadness.This is a book for youngsters and elders who want to identfy the conteperory problems faced by them in their ordrinry course of life,

My favorite is the story of Sankaran an aged person physically weak but mentally strong who finds a new life.This would definitely  move your heart giving all the insights about old age challenges. 

  Both the title and coverdesign are fantastic. The strong blurb is also a fitting one.

I recommend this book to all who want to study self help messages through stories in the contemporary scenario.

A must read by the youth belong  to the present generation  .

My score:5/5 

Disclamer ;"I got the book as a part of the review program in Outset"
