Book Name:  The 3 U-Turns of My Life

Author:  Jitendra

Publisher:  Srishti Publishers and Distributors

Price: Rs. 195


Manav Modi and Deepak Mehra are poles apart- one down to earth, other flamboyant; one introvert, other overtly loud; one aspiring to be rich, other born with a silver spoon. Except their feelings for Urvashi, they have nothing in common. Yet, they are friends.

They part ways, only to come together in a web of destiny that pulls them against each other, testing their friendship, love and patience, and even their choice of profession!

Will this race between CA and MBA lead them to fall, or do they need something to pull them out of the mess created by The 3 U-Turns of My Life?

Story in a nutshell:

Manav and Deepak have nothing in common and yet they are friends. Manav aspires to become a Chartered Accountant while Deepak has keen interest in doing MBA. Deepak detests CAs and always has something bad to comment upon them. Manav hates him for this.

Also, Deepak’s father is responsible for ruining Manav’s father’s business and ultimately, Manav’s life. How is he responsible? (Read the story!) This adds fuel to the fire. Manav and Deepak are just tolerating each other in the name of being friends. Urvashi acts like a glue and keeps them together.
Life starts when they move out to colleges to pursue their profession. After many nights of hardship and dedication, all 3 finally pass out from their colleges to face the wold.

Urvashi joins a PR company and Deepak and Manav real estate. Deepak is like the hare from ‘The Hare and The Tortoise’ tale. His career graph rockets high up in a matter of few months whereas Manav, being the tortoise, is doing slow. Manav’s boss hires Deepak for his upcoming project. And then the real game begins.

Who will win this game? The Hare? Or The Tortoise? Read to find it out!

My Take:

The story of The 3 U-Turns of My Life is predictable. There have been many instances where the incidents are dragged unnecessarily. The readers may grow disinterest because of it. The narration is simple, fluent and easily understandable. The naming of the chapters has been done incredibly well.

  • Manav’s 5-D rule.
  • Manav’s ‘never-give-up’ attitude.
  • Deepak’s sad story. ( He deserved much better life, back home. It was really touching one.)
  • The Epilogues.

  • The font size could have been increased and so also the paragraph spacing.

I rate:
Cover: 2.5/5
Story: 3.5/5
Characters : 3/5

My rating for ‘The 3 U-Turns of My Life’ is 3/5 stars.
