My Father Is A Hero

BY: NISHANT KAUSHIK

Synopsis:

Vaibhav Kulkarni has had few accomplishments worth boasting about in his modest life and career. Yet, his happy universe lies intact in the love and pride his ten-year-old daughter inspires in him. Nisha Kulkarni justifies every reason to be the favourite child of Pune’s premier school-be it her academic brilliance, her exceptional facility with music, or simply her unassuming charm. With his daughter showing promising signs of a stellar success story, Vaibhav has made peace with own unrequited dreams of the past. But when the girl mysteriously starts losing mojo and spirals into despair and seclusion, Vaibhav faces the toughest test of his life as single father – to reclaim his child’s trust and happiness. What distance will a middle-class man with limited means go to show his daughter the merit in believing in a dream?

Book Review:

‘My Father is a Hero’ is the story of a single father who goes to great lengths for his daughter’s happiness. The story has beautifully captured the sweet relationship of a daughter and a father along with the emotions that they individually go through during adverse times. I liked the way and frankness the book has handled the story of a middle class parent child relationship without any cliches.

Whole story focuses on two central characters Vaibhav Kulkarni, a single father, and his 10 year old daughter Nisha. Both the characters are very relatable and believable. Those who have a daughter would very well relate with the storyline. The storyline is simple without many twists and turns but it is a heart-warming tale that will melt your heart with the various emotions depicted within it.

The language of the book is simple and easy to follow though I feel the cover could have been better. The current cover makes it look like a boring read which the book is definitely not. I have always liked simple emotional stories and this one just kept me glued to it with its simplicity and honesty. Being a daughter myself, I could very well relate with the situations described in the book.

The book also passes some very important messages in a very subtle manner. Most of the middle class parents stop living for themselves once they become parents. The book also conveys the message to them to live life for themselves as well rather than just leaving life for their kids.

‘My Father is a Hero’ is a refreshing read which soothes your heart and brings a smile on your face once you finish it. Overall an enjoyable read with some subtle life lessons.

Those who like to read simple emotional books should give this one a shot. All in all a novel concept with believable characters and decent execution.
