About the Author:
An IIM-Calcutta alumnus, Disha loves to express herself through her poems and short stories. Be it travelling with friends, philosophizing on life, working on a social project through her NGO or cooking for her family, Disha comes across as a multi-faceted person with an energetic smile. My Beloved’s MBA Plans is her debut novel.
Amazingly great book. The author has certainly done a very fulfilling job by summarizing so many inspiring stories. Many times you gain and many times you sacrifice in order to be an achiever. I once saw in Spider Man movie subtitle Great Things Bring Great Responsibilities getting an MBA is certainly a similar feat and it comes at a cost. Many times we don't realize the cost is more personal rather than materialistic in nature. I am sure one will enrich himself or herself after reading this book A great read Rishabh Agarwal
A commendable first book from Disha. The way each story has been narrated is simple yet thoroughly captivating, and is sure to leave the reader spell-bound. I personally know a couple of people mentioned in the book and was really surprised and equally inspired, when I came to know about the hurdles they had to face and the sacrifices they had to make to prove to the world that they had indeed made the right decision to seek an MBA in the middle of a well-settled career. I'd recommend this to b-school aspirants of all ages, and not just the married ones.
The best thing about this book is it talks about the impact of a single decision on the life of an individual, which quite resembles the actual life of a human being. These small stories are written beautifully and talk about the people who take some decisions because of the circumstances ,wherein things look so weird initially but later on as the time passes things get settled down in an amazing way that it initiates adorable moments in the life of individuals. No one can imagine that one year spent in the collage can make drastic changes in your life but trust me that is what is complexity of the life is and this is something what is the one the best things this book has. Only a person who has empathy can understand these things because you got to live the moments in order to describe it . It gave a new ray of life to one of the characters where in things were gloomy initially then later on it became the best decision of her life. Human emotions are so complicated that you cannot describe it just by writing but trust me the way it is written in the book it enables you to you feel the same what the character is going through which is amazing.
My BelovedÃ¢ÂÂs MBA plan comes as fresh air compared to the countless MBA love stories written before. DishaÃ¢ÂÂs debut novel is realistic and beautifully highlights the dynamics of the relationship of couples going through the whirlwind journey of MBA. The characters and emotions are real and one can easily connect with their experiences. It is difficult to believe that this is DishaÃ¢ÂÂs first novel; the depth of emotions is beautifully captured in her writing. Disha has a long way to go in the literary world , looking forward for more such wonderful stories in the future.
Well to be frank, I am frankly not a bookish person but knowing the author personally I always had this "Do not dare to miss it" sort of feeling....!! However, lucky me as I started with the very first story....I was completely into it and now as I am moving ahead with other stories....I do feel proud and happy to be knowing Disha....not too close enough...but its a pleasure :) All these stories...in some or the other way can be related to the fears and struggles we face everyday in our lives and also motivates us in reading how these actual people like us...out of all the courage, faith and love for their dreams and dear ones.....drive into the risky lanes of lives and come out as winners.....!! Suffering through a lot of confusions and indecisiveness myself, with every single page of this book.....I am getting my share of lessons about life and the risks..which are worth taking!! Thank You Disha....for such an amazing piece of writing!! :D
