Myriad of Emotions by Revathy is the story of every child in today’s generation. Nainika is a career focused woman who stays with her husband while their daughter is studying in the US. Nivedita’s mother suffers a grave hip-bone injury right when Nainika receives an offer to move to the US to pursue a higher position with a better pay package. Incidentally, her husband, Prithvi, too receives a job offer from a company in the same city as Nainika’s relocating one. With issues prevailing in their relationship, Prithvi considers moving to the US as a major helping step in not only healing his relationship with Nainika but also strengthening their bond with their daughter Suvarsha. Nainika is caught between the responsibilities she holds towards her ailing mother and her husband’s wishes. She does find a ray of hope in the Chaturvi, founder of an NGO for the aged, but is apprehensive and confused about the right path to be chosen. Her decisions and solutions to the issues in her life are inspirational.
Although the story is a sweet one, there is a lot of scope for improvement. I somehow felt that the script on the whole was left unexplored. The characters and even the story-line have a lot of potential that should have been exploited to the fullest. The book lacks spice which could have been added through a lot of twists and turns, which, I must admit, I anticipated at certain points but was disappointed as the script took the easy path.
With career aspirations having taken the front road in the 21st century, today’s youth is most bound by the responsibilities they owe towards their family, and especially their parents, particularly in India. This book caters to all such individuals. Emotions and turmoils that a child faces when it has to choose between career and family have been beautifully portrayed in this book. The highlight of this book in the sincere conviction with which the story has been narrated; it’ll definitely trigger emotions in the hearts of the readers.
A thoughtful tea-time read. (2.5/5)
