WATCHED – don’t say a word…  – A REVIEW

You are being watched…. Maybe by just anyone …. Shhhhhh and that’s the punch line of the story narrated by the author Preeti Singh. Thrilling, suspense, anger, hate all leads to the living hell. The Karma – the crossroads.

This is a story a single lady who survives all odds to nab the culprit – Mr Jackel and Mr.Hyde. As the story progress, it leads various dimensions of life – love , murder …. Rest is you are watched … Be Alert. Kinjal , the protagonist here bravely and prudently proved her mettle in finding out the culprits to the books and Karma leads them to the gallows. You will find this story baffling and confusing. Unsolved mysteries hidden somewhere and the trick of the author. The more you dig, the more hidden agendas of the murderer. There are many speculations as to the identity the person behind the murders , but no speculation have ever been proven without a reasonable doubt and as time progresses the chance of ever discovering the true identity of the culprit, is even more unlikely. Some of the suspected culprits for the murders include physicians, doctors, workers, policemen and anyone else who had access to the materials and knowledge. Amber and Maggie – the bond is well established.

A detective story must have its main interest in unraveling the mystery. Crime fiction is one of the world’s most popular genres. Indeed, it has been estimated that as many as one in every three new novels, published in English, is classified within the crime fiction category. Amazing illustrations with simplicity – that makes the story spine chilling. A goodread.

The manner in which one endures what must be endured is more important than the thing that must be endured.-Dean Acheson

Whatever you do in your life if you don’t have atmabhava, you can never grow internally. Atmabhava means feeling the pains of others as yours. As we grow , we become more selfish , self seeking and self centred. In the rat race of life we become emotional and spiritually bankrupt.

Each of our sufferings, sharing them as we do, strengthens us and heals our wounds of alienation. With humility comes the willingness to give of what we have and what we are right now, without waiting until we are more eloquent or more accomplished. What we have to share is what someone else needs to receive. By focusing more on the needs of others and less on the imaginary concept of ourselves, which is our ego, we learn to overcome our fear of giving.

Swami Niranjanananda (Bihar School of Yoga) says, “‘Spiritual Awareness’ comes not with ‘Meditation’, but with ‘Cultivation of Understanding’. He further said ,

“1. Love, or prem, which is not a conditioned love or an expectant love, but an unconditioned, universal love.

  1. Affection, or sneha, which does not have a motive, but is a natural state of being.
  2. Compassion, or karuna, which is not for the sake of gaining name, fame or recognition, but which becomes a natural expression of the human personality.
  3. Devotion, or bhakti, the key which links the individual with the higher being, which gives a sense of unity, a unifying force to the entire creation of which we are all a part.”

The development of these four qualities is the real sadhana, the real process of yoga.

Love Thy Neighbour the easiest path of bhakti, seva and compassion. What a tremendous asset to have compassion for others! How difficult that same quality can make it to set boundaries! We’re all on a trip, following different road maps, but to the same destination. I will be ready to lend a helping hand to a troubled traveler. It will breathe new life into my own journey. Someone will be helped today by our kindness. Compassionate attention assures others that they do matter, and every one of us needs that reassurance occasionally.
