    Experimental genre of extremely small stories of 4 5 lines each, all about Delhi and its romantic youth couples.Frankly I found it meh One extra star for the illustrations for each story, which were good But not quite good enough to be compiled as a book.Reco Avoidable Delhites may slightly like it

    I am a fan of Ravish Kumar of NDTV prime time fame I bought this book frompurely based on his name.These are called laprek i.e Laghu prem Katha One page stories set in Delhi I read the stories and didn t like them much They have no plot except some names of Delhi s localities Maybe i am not able to understand the context or the hidden message.Still didn t work for me.Blurb Laprek Short Love Story Is a highly ambitious, experimental Nano format of story writing Originated at digi I am a fan of Ravish Kumar of NDTV prime time fame I bought this book frompurely based on his name.These are called laprek i.e Laghu prem Katha One page stories set in Delhi I read the stories and didn t like them much They have no plot except some names of Delhi s localities Maybe i am not able to understand the context or the hidden message.Still didn t work for me.Blurb Laprek Short Love Story Is a highly ambitious, experimental Nano format of story writing Originated at digital platform of Facebook, the famous face of TV news, anchor Ravish Kumar has started writing micro fiction in a limited space of Facebook and twitter The politics of our times figures as Metaphor in the loving exchange between characters Laprek is a story of Love in cities It is a story of Cities in love

    Some books should not be translated at all.Ishq mein shaher hona is one of them.The essence of most of the micro stories is gone.The book is only enjoyable in moments and the stories seem fake when read in English.After all Delhi is in India and most of the characters in the book don t speak English.It was a literary crime to translate the book in English.No one should waste his or her hard earned money and invaluable time on this rubbish English translation.Read the original Hindi version or do Some books should not be translated at all.Ishq mein shaher hona is one of them.The essence of most of the micro stories is gone.The book is only enjoyable in moments and the stories seem fake when read in English.After all Delhi is in India and most of the characters in the book don t speak English.It was a literary crime to translate the book in English.No one should waste his or her hard earned money and invaluable time on this rubbish English translation.Read the original Hindi version or don t read it at all

    Unlike Ravish, I ve lived in cities all my life To fall in love in a city is inextricably linked to falling in love with the city For most of my life, that city has been Kolkata it was ticklish to find the story set in Prince Anwar Shah Road, a stretch I ve frequented almost regularly for the last six years.One also longs for cities Six months in Pune encapsulated, as my partner in sharing Pune put it, the wingspan of a life When you know you re going to leave a city, the last few weeks Unlike Ravish, I ve lived in cities all my life To fall in love in a city is inextricably linked to falling in love with the city For most of my life, that city has been Kolkata it was ticklish to find the story set in Prince Anwar Shah Road, a stretch I ve frequented almost regularly for the last six years.One also longs for cities Six months in Pune encapsulated, as my partner in sharing Pune put it, the wingspan of a life When you know you re going to leave a city, the last few weeks become a longing in itself like being in the arms of your lover and longing for them.Cities compare poorly with each other, but the weak heart cannot help it A city without parental guidance which may have nothing to do with parents opens up differently A city visited only twice, on two separate days, once for templehopping with relatives and once for citywalking and seagazing with a dear friend, becomes two cities, two spaces in the heart.Loving in cities is also loving in the face of a spycam I like the fact that Ravish acknowledges this, but ultimately does not bow down to its dictums.The writing is really good in bits It s the artwork, however, that lends the book some real weight

    Interesting experiment but as someone said, what works on FB doesn t work that well when compiled as a book Requirement to have at least 70 80 pages makes the collection feel repetitive Some stories and some sketches are lovely Many stories make little sense for someone not familiar with Delhi A map of Delhi or a brief introduction to localities mentioned would have been really useful Leaving out some of the stories and instead including Locality Varnan would have made the titlefun Interesting experiment but as someone said, what works on FB doesn t work that well when compiled as a book Requirement to have at least 70 80 pages makes the collection feel repetitive Some stories and some sketches are lovely Many stories make little sense for someone not familiar with Delhi A map of Delhi or a brief introduction to localities mentioned would have been really useful Leaving out some of the stories and instead including Locality Varnan would have made the titlefun and accessible at the same time.But the concept is enticing I would still read another if one comes out based in Bangalore

    Love, lover and the city Ravish s book is a unique experiment of telling love stories in the backdrop of a city Delhi All stories are less than 100 words small and had been written in social media style writing Some stories give really deep insights into the city locations and what they mean to the lovers The book mainly focuses on middle class lovers and their social and economical background But somehow I felt that the stories are victims of their limited format style and fail to set en Love, lover and the city Ravish s book is a unique experiment of telling love stories in the backdrop of a city Delhi All stories are less than 100 words small and had been written in social media style writing Some stories give really deep insights into the city locations and what they mean to the lovers The book mainly focuses on middle class lovers and their social and economical background But somehow I felt that the stories are victims of their limited format style and fail to set enough context or impact to the readers PS I m not a Delhiite, the book may mean and speak something totally different to them

    Ishq main sheher hona the title gives away the whole of the book Each and every story is poetic and the metaphors that the writer has drawn throughout can be breathed by each one of us The way Ravish Kumar has seen our city, and Vikram Nayak has penned every sketch, you feel the attachment, their penetration in Delhi and how deeply do they understand the pulse of the city It s an easy to carry little pocket book which has a distinct voice and a strong imagery.

    Not really sure how I felt about this book, it was so abstract that I had to guess interpret most of what he is saying Will surely re read it in future.


  9. Mansi Mansi says:

    it is hard to relate to this book if you are not familiar with Delhi I am not and did not enjoy it much A lot of it is about 2 lovers finding space to be alone with each other.

    I would have given it 3 stars if I understood the Delhi references But well, that was a blocker, and other than that the book was okay.
