A brief sketch of the novel

The novel "It's not right but It's Okay" projects a realistic approach to the day-to-day events that occur around us. Everyone in life would fall in love with someone and not all love stories have a successful ending. The sequel of events is similar to those that we have witnessed in our life or happened to our near and dear. A girl by name Angira makes her presence in the novel in a lead role. Angira has a loving family surrounded by a company of good friends and relatives who used to help her all in her needs. Unfortunately life takes a sudden phase as her heart breaks and she couldn't forget the past. At this juncture, her old classmate Ved enters the scene. Ved, a football player in his college days comes close to the heart of Angira with his funny and articulate nature. Though his intentions are quite genuine, the girl being witch hunted by the past tries to ignore him and mistrusts his proposed new bond.

In the shadow of mistrust, she develops new found friendship with an undescribing bondage with Ved and both of them have risked at their own expense. The other characters created in the novel can be visualised in our surrounding, some of them encouraging their bond and the others trying to highlight the negative element on the other side. Cohesiveness and mutual trust work like a concreted cement to lay a strong foundation to any relationship.

The impact of past relationships on present was such that Angira could not be able to dwell in the present and enjoy the beauty of life. She couldn't enjoy the finest moment with Ved as she visualises the past with the old friend The entire novel looks like a collection of beautiful moments—both sweet and bitter. It is very sweet and simple story line focussing the human values, love being the centre of cynosure through the character of Angira as you can relate this story to yourself. The novel ends pouring the heart feelings of Veda who tried to convince her with the words about his true love and affection.

Wrap up

The story of Angira and Ved is well scripted and keeps the reader very interesting to look forward for the next set of events till the end. A very heart touching message that says, "if we have a past that we aren't particularly proud of, it doesn't mean that we can't have a promising future" . The story would leave the reader learn lessons from various characters and suggests to cultivate a positive approach in life. The reader would be able to identify with the characters the various elements of life -hope, dreams, fear and companionship. We should allow the things take time. Let not lose our patience and fight with rejuvenated spirit as at times only last card decides the winner.

To sum up, the novel is a very clean story of a young girl and we can have our time pass for three to four hours in a journey or a wait at Railway station or airport with this book in hand.
