The book raises issues of social and scientific backgrounds using the tools of simple language and ends with a lot of food for thought. The reader can empathize with the characters in the stories and the protagonist always has a social message. However the theme of each story has to be unraveled by the Reader. The book rakes up the eternal conundrum of the Human Mind in different intriguing ways.
The presentation handles different themes ranging from Soft Romance to Scientific Cloning with smatterings of comedy and the paradox of feminism and the marriage of mind and matter seem to be the most important feature. Set mostly in Indian backgrounds, the stories seem to laugh at the irony of situations and readers will see themselves at different phases of their lives, hopefully.
To laugh at a difficult situation and try to find the other side is the bottom line of the book and the title Cest La Vie.....simply justifies this. The author has a penchant for the unpredictable which adds freshness to the presentation.
So..read on.and just let it be!!
