Book:Life is what you make it
Author:Preeti Shenoy

Life is a journey with ups and downs. We always try to live with the results. In the end, results either bring happiness or sorrow. "Life is what you make it" is a story of love, hope and how determination can overcome destiny. It is a book that teaches us the value of small things in life.

It is a story of a beautiful girl Ankita who is going to enter into her college life. In college, she is not only good at her studies but also excels in extracurricular activities. She is always ready to accept any challenge without any scepticism. The first half of the book is all about her college life. Her struggle to make male friends due to the conservative nature of her parents tells us the current scenario of girls in India.

After getting admission to a prestigious MBA college, her entire life takes an influential turn. Due to bipolar disorder, she ends up being a patient at the mental hospital. Life is full of twists and turns. You never know when your life would take a substantial turn and leave you in a challenging situation. Being grateful to everything around you is something that can make you face these kinds of circumstances.

The first half might not have done justice with the title, but the way the author describes it in the second half through an exciting story is congenial. How would Ankita accept her mental disease? What about her MBA? Will she be able to fight all these circumstances? To know more, read the complete book.

The whole story revolves around Ankita. It is a story that illustrates the determination that Ankita has shown in her most painful time. It signifies the power of belief and the thinking process. It is a must-read book for those who want to know more about life.
