Book Review: Sitas Curse: by Sreemoyee Piu Kundu: Any Rating To This Book Will Be An Insult Of Rating

Hot, Sizzling, Erotic, Fantasy, Exotic, Chic Lit, Young Adult, Sexy and Mesmerizing, Arousing; well, Sita's Curse: The Language of Desire by Sreemoyee Piu Kundu nowhere could fall near to any of these categories. Only category where I could place it was Cheap, Third Grade, Overrated, Extrapolated (unnecessarily) with no story, plot or message. It has just one motive - to fantasize porn on each page, in each word. The novel is a dirt for youth, women who could easily fall into its trap towards darker side of unhealthy lifestyle.

The moment I read first couple of pages, my curiosity instantly grew to understand more about its author. No offenses but an ex Lifestyle Editor and a former PR Head could produce a far better positive side of life, something that could go constructive in nature. I am sure everything what an author pens down is never 100% fiction and if even 1% of all porn that Sreemoyee Piu Kundu has had in her real life - she had a worst taste of life, I would say. And on top of it - the best part of the joke is that this nonsense, full of sex, book has been dedicated by the author to her parents. I am sure no parent would be able to read even a single page of this rubbish book in front of their children and even vice versa. Readers can guess out well what all goes in the life of a lifestyle editor and a PR executive. Is it an autobiography, fiction or 50:50; am wondering.

Further absurd things are - the publisher Hachette India, who thought it to be a buck generating stuff and thus allowing it to be published. The stuff is totally infection to mind and heart to take away the purity and fill in filth in it. Few might like this third grade stuff as it might help them in taking to their dark fantasy world. On top of it the writer felt no shame in using respectful mythological characters' names of Gods and Goddesses.

There are number of ways of presenting a story or plot. A story on a red light area can be produced in such a strong and powerful manner that it nowhere appears to be a porn stuff. But then it also depends on the mental status of author also. Here it is totally reverse. The overall intention of author is not to present a powerful or meaningful story or plot in a constructive manner, but to put all the filth of her career and mind in each and every page of Sita's Curse: The Language of Desire. And it is clearly evident that author has smartly covered this completely third grade porn stuff in form of a story and putting a title that promises a lot of intensive and serious story.

A prayer at the end for the author to get right kind of grey cells growth in mind by God, to write right stuff for right kind of audience instead of masking the stuff and misguiding the readers.

Giving any rating to such a book would be an insult of the rating.
