Shekhar Kapoor is a successful businessman who has never done a decent thing in his entire life. For him it is all about what he can get and how fast he can get it. He goes through life cheating and insulting people, even after he receives a mysterious telephone call from what is called the City of Justice.
Ignoring the cryptic warnings, Shekhar continues to live his life as he pleases, until one day, shortly after insulting a beggar in the street, Shekhar crashes his car and is killed.
And it is only when he is standing before the Bookkeeper, and being shown where his life had gone wrong, that Shekhar finally understands what life is all about.
But is it too late for him? Can he be given another chance, to undo all the wrongs he has done? Or is there a chance that Shekhar Kapoor can find redemption where there had previously been no hope?
Shekhar Kapoor, the protagonist, is a successful businessman. He is a perfect example of a self-absorbed egotist. He thinks the world revolves around him, and would go to any extent to get things done. He has never felt any remorse for having cheated or insulted the people close to him.
One day, he receives a mysterious phone call from a place called ‘City of Justice’ asking him to correct all his wrongdoings. Being the narcissist he is, he clearly ignores the warning and continues to live life the same way. Shortly after that he meets with an accident. He is taken to the City of Justice, and shown how his wrongdoings have affected the lives of people around him.
Will he be punished? Will he correct his mistakes if given a second chance? The story is all about karma. The book is an eye-opener in that aspect. It makes us look back and wonder how our actions would have affected others. The message is brought out beautifully.
The major downside of this book is definitely the writing. There are a lot of poorly edited paragraphs. I really hope they correct these in the next edition because it is such a turn off.
Overall, it is a decent read. If you’re looking for a quick and easy read, do check this one. The book gives us hope. Maybe it’s never too late to change and start over.
