Review of ‘I Am Dead But My Heart Beats’


Review of ‘I Am Dead But My Heart Beats’

Author: Priyank

As the tagline itself says ‘It’s not a love story….it’s a revolution.’ It’s a revolutionary step towards humanity. It’s finally a book that ended my streak of searching for a well written love story.

This book depicts multiple issues on Indian community through a great love story. This book shows beyond doubt the various twists and turns which one faces while being in a relationship. It talks about what makes a love and to what extent a person goes to save it.

Zahid, a Muslim boy, falls in love with a Hindu girl, Swati.

Aryan and Anshika love each other, even though they belonged to different communities.

What price they had to pay for their love was unconceivable.

Loving someone isn’t a crime and it happens naturally without anyone’s intervention.

In this era, the society in which we live is echeloned into many parts on the basis of religion, caste, creed, gender and so on. We all have same blood running in our nerves. Our religion should be of humanity, this is what the authors says and describes in the book. If more and more inter-caste marriages take place, then one day would come for sure when our religion will be of ‘Humanity’. The will be no Hindu, no Muslim, no Bengali, no Punjabi, and no Bihari, but only ‘Hindustani’ citizens in the country. Our society needs to understand this fact. This is the current need of the hour.

This book influenced me to a grater extent and made me aware of several strands of live. The thing I loved the most was that every individual would be able to relate themselves with the characters. Readers will definitely enjoy the author’s way of describing scenes and characters.

By writing this book, the author has paid tribute to all those who have lost their lives while fighting the battle of love. Also, he has taken a step to sensitize the people for this crying need. I highly recommend this book. A must read book for all age groups. Heartiest congratulations to the author for this revolutionary step towards humanity.

Rating- 4.5
