My Take:

I am not much of a reviewer but would surely love to write my thoughts on the book I read. The princess of a whore house was a nice read. The book was part of blog tour organized by The Book Club. The title of the book attracted me as I love to read dark stories or stories based on social issues.

The author has picked up the plot which is very sensitive in a way that such topics where the life of a sex worker and her dreams are not usually discussed. The story talks about the plight of a widow, a young mother, who is trafficked and ends up in a brothel in Delhi. Can she succeed in changing her daughter’s life is what the book is about?

The story is very realistic and touching. Author has managed to show all the hardships an woman can go through under such a circumstance. However, there are few things which made the flow of the story very confusing. The point if view of the characters in some part of the book is not categorized properly. The description of the city is too elaborate in some places. I would have enjoyed them if it were a romance scene but here it was a turn off sometimes. Nevertheless, the book is a first attempt of the author and has managed to strike the chord of the community and a reader in a very positive manner. It was a good short read and I would like to recommend it to those who enjoy reading social issues.

He has authored a number of articles and white papers on software technology and processes. For the first time in April 2014, his article was featured in Better Software magazine published in Florida, USA.

India is the fifth-largest economy in the world with the Gross Domestic Product growth at 7.1 percent. Contrary, India ranks 118 out of 157 countries in the happiness index. The fact seized Mayank’s attention towards social problems affecting social support, freedom of choices, and generosity, to name a few. Having travelled across continents and associated with people with diverse beliefs and values, he became more curious about the social riddles curtailing liberties across societies. He penned his debut novel, The Princess of a Whorehouse, when he came across some real life incidents that quivered his soul.
