  1. 3 out of 5

    The Secret Wish List isabout Diksha, 35 year old woman stuck in a bad marriage for almost 2 decades just because she committed a silly mistake when she was 16 years old. She kissed a boy, Ankit, with whom she had fallen in love during her teen years. When her parents discover her “scandalous” behavior they pack her off to her aunt’s place and emotionally blackmails her to get married at 19.The story revolves around her wish list which creates when her cousin gives her strength to get rid of meaningless marriage and re-connect with her old lover Ankit and have extra-marital affair or fake her marriage. Preeti’s simple narration and her attention to little details create a graphic depiction. However in some places we felt that she tries to over justify the main protagonist’s decision which was unnecessary. Best thing about preeti’s book is she always have a storyline. The best part about Preeti’s writings is the time and effort spent in etching out each and every character and the interactions between them. Another aspect about her is the way she tackles “difficult” subjects such as having an extramarital relationship. Sure, we all scoff at the mere idea but we do not bother going behind and understanding the reasons for it. The story is very light & predictable !
