Title- Equations of a being
Author- Ashutosh Gupta
Publisher- Notion Press Publishing
Writing STyle- 5/5
If you have a penchant for both reason and abstractness, this intriguing piece of literature shouldn’t be missed. Equations of a being beautifully coalesce the author’s thought pieces pertaining to the existential spectrum. Never has there been a book that blended emotions, intellect, and imagination so seamlessly, to celebrate a being in totality.
The author depicts his artistic persuasion, the enriched and disintegrated fragments of his existence, and the conclusions based on his interactions with the physical and abstract elements of life in a compelling and unbridled manner.
Its a book for the ages that will let you trace the complete trajectory of a being and raise that a being has been and will always be a convergence of his tryst with abstractness, his acceptance of vulnerability, and his surge for virtuosity.
The book ” Equations of a being” is not a regular book that has a story which leads to conclusion in the end. It is something different. Or, totally different. The book is divided into sixteen chapters; each chapter dealing with different phases of life. The author has tried to cover many aspects into all these sixteen chapters. You can call it poetry, or verses or anything you want to but the essence will leave you spellbound.
Writing Non- fiction is not an easy task but Ashutosh Gupta has done it wonderfully. Every poetry/ verse will leave you thinking about a question. A question about human nature. A question about life. The book is something that you cannot choose youor favourite instead each and every work printed in the book will become your favourite. Terse writing style is author’s quality whch is very well shown in this book. The confident tone acts as an icing.
It would be a disgrace to say what was my favourite in the book but still i will do this sin to menton what took my heart away.
Page 8- ” The ore I write, the more I am convinced of the fact that ecstasy is a lethal dampener of a man’s yearning to find subtlety and the melting human within.”
Page 15 – Keeping alive the artist within is the tussle of all tussles. It’s like letting out a loud but melodious cry, again and again, it;s like trying to tickle with a razor-sharp knife, and it;s like a distressful beggar singing the song of his life to earn a few breaths“.
Page 37- ” The life of a being that owns the flashes of genius but lacks the consistency of talent becomes more of a wait than a progression“.
Both verses of Chapter 14- Being a thinker in a protective cartel called family.
The above mentioned are a few but trust me, every single word will take you to a different world.
Highly recommend to everybody who is a true lover of life. The book promises to take you to a different world and will make you feel loves, ask some questions and will leave you thinking to find your own answers to life.
Negatives– I didn’t find any. !!
