There is a wonderful saying: “The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems, but those who learn to live with things that are less than perfect.” In this highly competitive world, the life of corporate work-force is full of all kinds of strain and stress. There is no way we can escape from our jobs and its work pressure, but we can certainly counter it by enriching the fun and laughter quotient at work. 65 Colours of Rainbow is a collection of sixty-five short stories and caricatures based on real life, work-related incidents. This pleasingly warm collection writes with terrifying compassion about the things that matter most. The distinctive narrative caricatures demonstrate how extraordinary the ordinary can be!!

Review

65 Colours Of Rainbow is a delightful and a light read that takes you through different experiences of the techies.

The author has compiled 65 stories, each belonging to a personal experience of an IT professional, containing some light moments they enjoyed during their mundane routine. The author himself is associated with the tech industry and perhaps so, has been able to bring out the true colors of the nerds so well.

It is a short book written in a simple manner adorned with some random caricatures to interest its readers. It is not a kind of long, elaborative, full-fledged novel. Rather it is an anthology of real-life accounts of the geeks(as they are considered) presented in a concise manner. The narration is austere and keeps you occupied. Some of the stories are really interesting. They show us the humorous side of the IT professionals.

The writing style of the author is okay but it could definitely have been better. The title is plain and dull and so, would be unable to pique the interest of the readers. However, the title is perfectly in accordance with the stuff the book contains. The 65 stories actually reflect the other side of the people who toil hard in raking their brains with codes and programs to meet their deadlines, their funny experiences, the light moments of laughter they share during their breaks, the endless conversations and the fear of their bosses. The grammar, the presentation of the content, the flow in thoughts is proper.

It is a book that is symbolic of a unique concept. So, if you are the one who wants to read the stories which are real and a bit humorous, if you want to change your reading pattern for a while, and if you wish to lay your hands at something totally new; you could pick up this one!
