Book Name:- The One from the Stars
Book Author:- Keshav Aneel
“The cost of not following your heart is spending the rest of your life wishing you had.”
Vishesh is a dreamer, who is driven by his passion for writing and words. But like most Indian middle class families, his parents are impatient to see him settled in a government job. Despite all obstacles, making no complaints, he continues to follow the hard path, holding up the promise he had made to himself, trying to fulfil his father’s wishes and failing over and over.
Almost everyone – his parents, friends and the love of his life – leaves his side in the middle of his journey. To worsen things, he is diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, the seriousness of which nobody could decipher before it was too late.
Will a dreamer be sacrificed for social standing? Will a heart be crushed to uphold a hollow image?
Left alone and misunderstood by everyone he knew, this is Vishesh’s intense story of repeatedly falling down and trying to get up on his own, to prove that everyone who dares to follow their heart is not a commoner; he is ‘The One From the Stars’.
