Review-Destiny of Shattered Dreams by Nilesh Rathod



          Destiny of Shattered Dreams is Nilesh Rathod’s debut novel.

The story is about Atul Malhotra’s struggle to fulfill his dream and ambition, his success story and his downfall. In short this book is mix of corporate deals, political games and all that goes on in backdrop of corporate world.

Atul born in a middle class family has big dreams. He had struggled a lot to complete his education and get a job. Not satisfied with his job he gathers some friends-colleagues and starts a small start-up company of mobile service provider. With his will power, hard work and determination he climbs the corporate ladder very fast and makes a name for himself.

Roshni, his girlfriend and wife of 10 years, though born in a rich business family, falls in love with Atul. But as Atul climbs the corporate ladder, a wedge is drawn between these love birds and they start drifting apart.

Aarti is Atul’s support system, his colleague, his love. She joins his office as a trainee but she, too, with her dedication and hard work and with a chance meet with Atul gets closer and fall in love.

As Atul’s business expands, it attracts political bigwigs. That’s one mistake he does in his life…

Was that the only mistake of his life? Was that avoidable? Would his life been different if he had not taken that step?  To know more about it, read Nilesh Rathod’s Destiny of Shattered Dreams.

What I liked about the book:

          The author being a businessman himself has written well about how the corporate world works. The political and corporate nexus too is well defined and explained. The way the characters are introduced in the plot, their roles are well etched. I also liked the use of poems at apt places in the story to depict the mood of the plot.

What I didn’t like:

          A reader would have liked to know more on how Atul and Roshni met and fell in love, which is not mentioned. Some more details on Jyoti, Roshni’s sister on why she was hell bent on destroying Roshni’s life.  Too much of corporate lingo makes a reader, who is not well versed with those words feel lost.

          In short, one must read this book, if you like to read fast-paced, which gives a realistic feel and knowledge of corporate world, laced with passion, love, treachery all in one.
