Book Review: All Rights Reserved for You by Sudeep Nagarkar

Ever heard of pen friends, keeping the friendship alive through letters and postcards? Well, that was a thing of past when internet was off from our lives. Today, people chat on WhatsApp, FB, Snapchat, etc. etc…but how many of us fall in love and convert that into marriage. Only flirting, no serious relationship. Sudeep Nagarkar’s newly released book, ‘All Rights Reserved for You’ is loosely based on the similar themes.

It is a story of Aditya and Jasmine. They live thousands of miles away, Aditya in Mumbai, and jasmine in Delhi. The girl is Punjabi, the boy is Marathi. Yet they fall in love and make it to the next step called marriage. So, basically they remain away physically but continue to maintain their relationship. They are on through social media. How they got into touch, they did they proceed, how did he propose to Jasmine- all these questions can only be answered when you pick up this light romantic book. Rumours are that the story is semi-autobiographical because in the story it is given that Aditya is a budding writer, and on the other hand Jasmine doesn’t even like to see books in her worst nightmares. Their aspirations and careers are different, yet they succeed as lovers. How…find out yourself. To make the story more spicy and substantial, there are some interesting characters like Dipika and Roma.

Three years into long-distance relationship. Will they be able to convince their parents for marriage despite knowing the orthodox society of India that turns back on the inter-caste marriage at the first opportunity? More than love affairs and proposals and trust and other issues, it is also a mélange of cultural differences that we present at every nook and corner of the country. Sudeep’s writing is lollapalooza, he is anytime better than other chic writers. Kudos to him!
