Title: Lemon Girl

Description:

Lemon Girl is a thought-provoking story about a girl who becomes victim of a sexual crime. She gets even more shattered when she is made to bear the blame for the incident. This breaks her down psychologically. She rejects her real self and transforms into a submissive parasite who is totally devoid of self-respect and acts as a glamourous but voiceless doll made to be played about by men.

But the true love of one man helps her to get over from the forced guilt, find her true self, re-discover her lost self-respect and dreams and assert that what happened to her was not her fault.

Despite being based upon a serious social issue, the book keeps a balance between poignancy and entertainment and has a very pleasing and heart-warming love story.

The book has been beautifully woven around the themes of abuse of women, the injustive forced upon the rape victim by Indian society and the effects of all this on the victim. The novel has brilliant display of psychological trauma of such victims.

Lemon Girl is well written, fast paced and has superbly drawn, realistic and likeable characters.

“It’s all your fault!”

The first line of the book is the theme of this dark disturbing novel on abuse. It is a love story. But this is no chic lit. It is a feminist story. But this is no political treatise. It is a protest story. But there are no ranting polemics.

Jyoti Arora’s second book, the self published Lemon Girl, a slim 168 page story of the destructive power of these words, which puts the onus of crime on the victim, and the spiralling self destructive vortex that can change a bubbling spirited girl into a guilt ridden masochist with suicidal tendencies.

The protagonist is Nirvi, with whom, like the hero and co narrator of the story Arsh, I fell in love. What looked like yet another college romance soon took a stark turn, and the protagonist’s narrative, a look into the tortured mind of a psychologically damaged victim bent on self destruction, sounds uncomfortably real.

A true to life ending would, in nine cases out of ten, be with the pointless and painful end of the victim. But Jyoti has, much to my relief, chosen the tenth. There is light at the end of the tunnel, in the form of love, the hope of which gives Nirvi ( a play on Nirbhaya?) the courage to live, and proclaim; “It is NOT my fault!”

This is a story of the gen Y, of techies and call centres; smart phones and blogs, of gaming and clubbing; of living together and anti corruption movement, but with the ancient shackles of conventional attitudes regarding gender roles, sexuality and morality still ruling their lives.

I do not wish to reveal more of the plot and urge the readers to do so themselves, ordering the book on Amazon or Flipkart, or order it at your friendly neighbourhood bookshop at about Rs 250 or less. It would be worth your time.
