Some of quotes I liked are
Some of quotes I liked are
1. Betrayal hurts the most when it comes from the one who you always remembered in your prayers.
2. Just because something awful has happened in the past doesn't mean the future too would be like that.
I liked the details which author has written when it comes to tulsi plant in the story , how Rupali thought she would grow with tulsi plant which she sows very first day when she joins college and Arjun at the end speaks with plant.
The book reminds one to fight for the evil and violence against women happening around us.The book is really a page turner and leaves one thinking.
My Rating : 4/5 stars
