About the book;
The book “The Story Of Dots…” is set against the backdrop of the author’s real life. It takes into account the experience that she had to handle in coping with friends, family, strangers, stranglers. It takes through a rollercoaster ride of the impact of social media. It talks about the voids in a person’s life and the need to grout it as & when required. It talks about the richness of the punctuations in English language specially the mere ‘dot’ with a focus on the power of words to make you feel low and high at different times. It takes you through the different time zones of the author’s life, all coinciding towards the fierce well, the dot. It encourages to fight the mental health issues created under the influence of the mingled yarns.
We all have heard of that phrase, ‘a friend in need is a friend indeed.’ Whenever there is trouble in life we always seek a friend who will listen to our problems.
But how many times can we express our feelings without having the fear of being judged by the same person? We can’t.
In the book named, ‘STORY OF DOTS…’ author Zarin Ali, starts by talking about her childhood memories and puts forward her various learnings so that we face our problems more consciously and make rational decisions at every step of our lives.
She beautifully explains the transition that she underwent while she was growing up, from being a child to a teenager, the way she became accustomed with the ways of the world.
The book, written in lucid language, is divided into nine chapters, is a must-read for all, especially the teenagers, who find it increasingly difficult to face the challenges in life.
