Book Review

If you wish to get inspired to live a dream by reading a fiction book then this is the one. A very short novel which has so many inspiration thoughts and writings.

I liked the characters genuine portrayal. There was no sugar coating throughout the novel. Myra, Kabir and Sandy are united by a single name Ramy. Ramy travel blog helps them to heal themselves and inspires them to travel where they explore their dreams. This book beautifully put forth that all we need is a right people around us to make the things right.

Great kudos to the author for bringing up the women empowerment in an effective environment. The author didn’t project only the negative side but also the positive side of the society. The dirty politics exists at every corner and every place. Sandy was like a jovial friend of mine. I wish if there had been chapters from his point of view.

Lot of people go under depression as like Myra. Author could have included how she overcome her depression and Ramy. I felt that part was missing. The language was really simple and easy.

Overall “On The Open Road” gives us the strength and inspiration to travel on open road with the dreams in our back bag.


About The Author

(Courtesy- GoodReads)

In 2016, at twenty-three, I quit my first job with the dream of becoming a storyteller. I packed a rucksack and left Mumbai, where I worked as an Area Sales Manager, in search of my true self.

A year after my dream expedition, across India and Europe, I am back to reality with my novel – On the Open Road. I met people with extraordinary stories – the travelers, the entrepreneurs, the artists, the visionaries and the saints, who inspired me to the core and gave a new direction to my life. I felt I was meant to be a storyteller, stronger than ever.

I am currently based out of Gurugram, where I write at Starbucks and leave for the Himalayas when I struggle with the writer’s block.

I have sailed to the Andamans, camped with the Indian Jawans in Arunachal Pradesh, scuba dived in the Indian Ocean, swum with the dolphins in the Mediterranean, danced to Bollywood songs on the streets of Prague, floated free for hours on the beach in the Island of Mallorca. I wish to travel the world before I die!

Every year, I spend time in the coastal village of Palolem in Goa as I feel I belong there! A minimalist at heart, with every passing day, I find myself moving farther from the never-ending quest of owning material possessions and a step closer to owning a vast ocean of experiences.

A post-graduate in management from the prestigious B-school IMI, New Delhi and a graduate in Computer Science and Technology, I have worked with corporates like HSBC and Coffee Day Beverages. On the Open Road draws inspiration from my real-life experiences and I wish to inspire my readers to listen to their heart and follow their dreams.
