Author Shivi Pandey

SHIVI PANDEY was born in Patna on 22nd April 1993 and grew up in West Bengal. In his early childhood, he was admitted to a boarding school. He passed his ICSE examinations in 2009 from Himali Boarding School located in Kurseong, Darjeeling.

He is a jovial, carefree and fun loving person. He is also a source of motivation for his friends sometimes. Ever since his childhood he has been an avid reader which motivated him to focus his expressions and pen it down. It is not only his hobby but also his passion to write. His poem was published in “Kritika” the college magazine which gave him focus to write.

He is an engineer graduated in 2015. April from KIIT UNIVERSITY. His self-belief and selfless attitude are just few good points about him. He firmly believes that not quantity but the quality matters and does not discriminate between people but skill. Currently, he lives in Kolkata and works for COGNIZANT TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS.


Cover of Love Story? Seriously! 

COVER AND TITLE: Love Story? Seriously! is the catchy title in itself. The use of question mark and exclamation mark create curiosity among readers. A man is covering his face with his both hands who is looking desperate on the front cover. Back of a couple sitting near trees can be seen on the front cover. The book title is printed at the center of the cover. ‘L’ of ‘Love’ looks like slept ‘T’, ‘O’ in ‘story’ represents broken heart. Opening end of ‘S’ in the ‘Seriously’ looks like a mouth of a black snake. Grey, Red, Black and White colour combination of front cover perfectly attract readers and gives the hint of different themes like friendship, attraction, love, betrayal, one-sided-love and humour. Overall Jimmyeric Films & Media designed one more perfect cover.

SETTING: This Love story seriously runs across Kurseong, West Bengal, Delhi, Noida, and Tirrupur. Author Shivi Pandey describes brief but enough historical background of Meenakshi temple, Madurai, and the city Coimbatore.

LANGUAGE AND WRITING STYLE: Author uses quite a difficult language in the novel. Use of capital fonts does not seem good to stress words as compared to italic fonts. Author’s language Bengali’s  impressions appear in his writing. Author Shivi Pandey uses first person narrative technique but it feels like reading a diary. Author elegantly avoids bold words like f**k or hell replacing dots which shows character’s frustration and anger. I see my own writing style in one to one conversation held in the novel by the young author Shivi Pandey. I like author’s imagination in one scene where he writes H I J K L M N O to mention the formula H2O.

CHARACTERISATION: Author Shivi Pandey portrays Samar Singh as the protagonist whose love story it is. The story reaches to readers through Samar’s point of view. Sayan aka Sam’s character is gracefully sketched as Samar’s friend. Samriddhi Dwivedi and Surbhi are two female protagonists in the novel. Shivi introduces Kajal as a beautiful Nepali girl. Readers meet some other characters like Rahul, Jyoti, Sapna Pradhan, Ujjwal, Miss Deepa Roy, Shekhar Tiwary, Aniket, Anup Saha, Amit Soni, Shrija and Aadhya etc while going through this love story.

PLOT: Samar’s love story begins in Kurseong  where readers get some glimpses of students’ boarding life. The beginning of the first chapter bored me but it turns interesting with Samar’s humoric comments on girls and Rahul’s look. I feel fourth chapter boring again because the chapter is stretched. The scene of question paper stealing reminds me the same scene from the novel Heart of Bullets though my intention to compare both books here is not at all. The author remarks his comment on cheating in board examinations. He also remarks his sarcastic comment on educated peoples who take medicines without doctor’s prescription. ‘Freshers’ is my one of the most favorite chapters from the novel. The ending of the ninth chapter ‘Mad For You… come have a look’ touches to my heart. I like Samar’s comment on arrange marriages. The author beautifully scribbles the intimacy scene. However, I don’t understand the logic and need behind author’s experiment/theory to prove the connection of the word ASS with the names of Samar’s friends Anup Saha and Amit Soni. I don’t have any intention to extinguish Shivi Pandey or any other author from making experiments in the novel. Unique experiments are welcomed in the literature but authors should understand what kind of experiments have to be done. Humour ke liye kuchh bhi nahi chalta. The author has done one more experiment in the twelfth chapter where he relates Samar’s life events to the numerology and I would really applaud for this.


“Past is the most gifted possession, it is something not to relent upon but to be looked upon as a process to success.”

“Love doesn’t come your way, you have to reach for it and even if it does, in whatever form you have to accept it.”

“After every worst time there comes good time and after every great time there’s a worst.”

HEART BREAKING CRITICISM: After reading two titles by Petals Publishers, I have come to one conclusion- Petals is the well-known and prestigious publisher in the industry of Hindi and English books publishing, but their editors and as a publisher Petals itself needs more hard work, put a lot of efforts and be careful to make their titles error free. I would like to note some simple printing errors from the book which could have been avoided for the improvement of the book- Rememberd (Remembered), Divedi (Dwivedi), and planed (planned) on page numbers 75, 79, and 133. After an introduction of Aadhya’s character, her name is misprinted everywhere in the whole book. Further so many punctuation marks are missing in the novel. Some words faint in the book. Though the price Rs.175/- is not too much, it becomes expensive a bit for the book having major drawbacks like this.


After reading the novel, a first thought appeared in my mind was, is it a Love Story? Seriously! Aisi koi love story rehti hai? You too might have asked same question. And my answer is- No! This is not a typical love story we read everyday because this is somewhat unique, a fresh love story with humour and lot of experiments by the author Shivi Pandey. Some scenes relate to my own past life and reminds my someone close while reading the novel. Though 168 pages are not too much I feel the story stretched by the author and I think the novel could have been much better if author Shivi Pandey would have escaped some unnecessary experiments. Otherwise, Love Story? Seriously! is the good choice for one-time reading.”


I would have given more rating for the beautiful plot by the author but due to the bad editing of the book, I would give 3.5 out of 5 stars to the Love Story? Seriously! by Shivi Pandey.

OVERVIEW of Love Story? Seriously!

Trailer of Love Story? Seriously! (©Aryan Saha)

The sanguine sun is just preparing to slumber and the filtered glare from striking the scene makes it even more alluring. The flock of birds are moving together in a v shaped structure and it looks as if they are returning to their home after a long tedious day’s hard work. The fact that they are all together in every aspect of life brings strength and calmness to my dilapidating heart. It is even more mesmerizing to find the three best people of my life beside me.

SAMAR: The epitome of the story, takes you on an amazing voyage of his life. He recalls his friends and all his unsuccessful love interests – Sapna, Samriddhi & Surbhi.

What happens when you fall in love? What happens when you fall out of it? What happens when you are unwanted? What happens when you are cheated ad still coined a cheater? Can there be a reason to not like someone? Can there always be a reason to like someone? Explore answers to all these questions along with Samar on his journey in search of true love.

It brings you, yet another unconventional love story of all times. The author intends to bring about the fact that can this also be a love story and leaves the readers to decide enquiring them Love Story? Seriously!

Catchy Cover and the Lovely Title


(Front cover of Falling In Love)

Cover in Red colour perfectly suits to the romantic genre of Falling In Love… One can see a girl holding her boyfriend’s hand. ‘In’ in ‘Falling In Love…’ is printed into a shape of a heart which looks like a cherry on the cake. Overall Rashmita Jha has designed an attractive cover.

Setting- Story of Falling In Love… runs through several locations like Patna, Rajgir (100 km far from Patna) from Bihar, author beautifully illustrates the metro city Bangalore. The story has a foreign touch of Bahamas in North America.

Themes- The novel Falling In Love… by Neeraj Mishra covers various themes like romanticism, comedy, love and e-love etc.

Language and Writing Style- Author Neeraj Mishra uses very simple and lucid language so one does not need a dictionary. He even wins my heart in his ‘Two Words’ in the beginning of the book. Editors have formatted italic fonts in a proper way but I think italic fonts could have been much better. “Naanu ninna preethi suthene.” Confused? No! I didn’t abuse you. This is the Kannada translation of English phrase ‘I love you’. So author also uses some regional phrases and words. Beginning chapters of Falling in love… are written in a diary style without mentioning dates. All the chapters are narrated in a fast pace so a reader doesn’t feel bored while reading. The author uses first person and past tense to narrate the story and this technique works fantastic.

Characters- Manav Goswami and Sriti Agarwal are the protagonists in this story of Falling In Love…  Vikas Nandan and Ashish are super seniors of Manav. Mr. Subramanyam and Chef Chatterjee represent Manav’s college as the director and first-year teacher for kitchen training respectively. Sriti’s best friend Pooja aka dashing_poo’s character is portrayed beautifully. I am really impressed with the character of Sriti’s father Ghanshyam Das Agarwal- a businessman of plywood and timber at Agarwal Timbers Pvt. Ltd. Sriti’s mother Laxmi’s character represents typical housewife. The author also introduces about Sriti’s brothers Aditya Agarwal and Adarsh Agarwal. Mr. Suri’s character is also sketched gracefully. I liked all the characters portrayed in Falling In Love. But I really missed one character. Author Neeraj Mishra talks about Manav’s father in beginning, but a name of his father and description about Manav’s family is missing in the whole book. So I would have liked more if the author would have described Manav’s parents as he influenced on Sriti’s family.

Lovely Plot

First chapter ‘Welcome to Bangalore’ begins with Manav’s admission to college and introduction about his college rules and regulations. Beginning of ‘Falling in Love…’ commemorates me the beginning of You Are The Best Wife by Ajay K Pandey as both love stories start with the college admission. Cute_Manav and sriti.agarwal’s chatting is just realistic as we do nowadays in our own life in the virtual world of the internet in the second chapter ‘And She Came Online...’ First chatting scene between Cute_Manav and sriti.agarwal in the third chapter ‘The New Approach’ is really funny. I would like to mention Sriti’s definition of Dumbo “Dumbo means you! The person who  has little malfunction on upper floor is called dumbo.” Manav’s theory of difference between chatting and talking is really logical and brilliant, I won’t wonder if prestigious dictionary like Oxford approves his theory of difference chatting and talking; “Let me tell you the difference between chatting and talking! See, when you think something in your mind and you want to express it to another person then with use of hands you type on the keyboard and your message travels via computer’s binary language to the other person and the person receives your message and then responds to your message via the same procedure! This time consuming utterly slow paced conversation is called chatting while vide hearing the voice over telephone or mobile instrument or face to face is called talking where the conversation is fast paced and filled with real emotions!” Author comments on friends who poke their nose in every matter of friends and interferes in their life. Manav and Sriti’s first chat in the fourth chapter ‘From Online To Offline!’ on love and other funny topics reminds me my chat with my FRIENDS. Fifth chapter ‘Listening to Her’ touches to my heart and let me back in the memory of my someone close. The ending of this and eighth chapter made my cry literally. Sixth chapter ‘The Rendezvous’ brings so many twists in a relationship between Manav and Sriti. Author comments on girls’ modern dressing fashion in the seventh chapter ‘New Beginning.’ Manav’s experience of a ride on Sriti’s scooty commemorates me my own experience of a ride in the back seat of my best friend’s scooty (heheheJ!!! Oye Hello! Dirty minds, didn’t I write FRIEND??).  Sriti’s birthday event and Manav’s ‘zid’ to wish her is described beautifully in chapter eighth ‘Her Birthday…’ Author comments on Marwari’s misery and pundits’ prediction of future. The author gives brief but enough information about American chop suey and dry baby corn Manchurian (Naam padh ke hi muh me paani aa gaya na?? Mere muh me bhi aaya…). In the ninth chapter ‘The Bad Days And Good Days’, author scribbles that how one phone call of friend’s interference can create misunderstanding and how the relationship can go to a sad end (No! I am not sharing the climax you fool..!) I myself commemorate me the same phone call when Pooja calls Manav to forget his love Sriti. Eleventh chapter ‘The Mission’ tells everything about author’s deep observation and satiric comments about Marwari community when Manav quotes “The smell of business to a Marwari is just like the smell of biryani to a hungry man!” My mouth watered while reading names of various delicious dishes cooked by Manav in the kitchen on Sriti’s home. Knowledge of cooking studied in Hotel Management is elegantly used in the novel by the author Neeraj Mishra. The author also shares some useful ethics of business. So, this love story was formed in the virtual world of internet.  We are aware of the future and reality of relationships formed on the internet. So, what happens next? Do Sriti’s parents refuse Manav and Sriti’s relationship? Or they accept them? Does this story ends to a happy end or fails like common e-love stories at a tragic end? I won’t share the climax but you must not miss the novel ‘Falling In Love...’

Quotes from Falling In Love…

  1. All the quotes and one-liners from the novel ‘Falling In Love…’ touches to my heart and relates to my own life.
  2. “Telling a lie does not make you cool! You become cool only when you are truthful and when your heart speaks truth. A friendship is based on trust and if you lie, the trust breaks and without trust any friendship cannot sustain.”
  3. “You know sometimes it happens that someone else knows about your heart better than you, because your heart doesn’t remain with you, it belongs to that someone.”
  4. “Value Of Relation” Is Not That How Much You Feel Happy With Some One. But It Is That, How Much Some One Feels ALONE Without You J!!”
  5. “Never regret a day in your life. Good days give happiness, bad days give experience, worst days give lessons, and best days give memories!”
  6. “Memories are always special. Sometimes we laugh by remembering the days we cried and we cry remembering the days we laughed.”
  7. “‘Life is everything’, when the person you love misses you in your absence. But ‘life is nothing’ when they miss to understand your importance in your presence.”
  8. “Love happens only once and rest is just compromises and then life goes on and on.”
  9. “Love makes you do everything that you never imagined doing.”

Oops Factors of Falling In Love…

  1. Improper Typing and Editing: Sriti.agarwal is printed instead of Cute_Manav on page number 50. Space is printed between ‘w’ and ‘hy’ (i.e.: w hy for ‘why’ on page no. 103. Double inverted comma opens which should be closed in the last paragraph on page 108. I am highlighting misprints with strikethrough effects- may, Maam and Srits’s instead of my, Ma’am and Sriti’s on page numbers 134, 160 and 211. I would say that editing could have been much better than what it is now.
  2. Header margin is too much and footer margin is very less, so lines are printed to the footer line.
  3. Though the light weight of the book is plus point, we can’t ignore very cheap quality of pages.
  4. Price Rs 175/- is too much for the book when we compare with poor page quality.

Reviewer’s Notes-


(Me trying to Falling In Love…)

“The story and fast pace of author’s writing style keep you hooked with the story of ‘Falling In Love…’ and won’t let you put down the book. I can consider Falling In Love in my all-time favourite love stories. Author Neeraj Mishra may claim ‘Falling In Love…’ as his story but this is my and everyone’s story who have TRULY LOVED even once in ANY RELATION. I have mucked almost every page and every line of the book. My friend Trupti almost finished the whole book in one seating and I too finished the book in two seating. I feel the climax scene short in length, so I would have liked more if author Neeraj Mishra would have stretched the climax scene with more thrill. Otherwise, Falling in Love is the perfect love story which will make you smile, laugh and cry at the same time. I would recommend it to every student of Hotel Management, romance lovers, and businessmen. I would rate the book 3.9 on the scale of 5 stars.”

The BLURB of Falling In Love…

He was witty. She was traditional. He was happy go lucky. She was adorable next door girl. He instantly fell in love with her. She cocooned her feelings. He wanted her. She refused him. Who wins? Why she refused him? Will they meet? Will he be able to sweep her from her feet? Are love stories really for forever? Does love happen only once? How far can someone go to get his love?

Come, be a part of this eternal saga, a journey. A journey of two souls falling for each other where you will find funny one liners, punches and oodles of romance. If you have ever fallen in love, it’s your story, it’s our story. Relive, cherish and be a part of those moments, once again!

My Scheduled IDEAL YATRA to Kota and Ajmer in June.



Summer holidays vacation have been started. So many of us would have been planning for the tour to spend their holidays on this vacation. I also like to spend my holidays in tours and travels. I do not plan intentionally to spend my holidays out of my city; but whenever I get a chance to travel anywhere for any reason, I don’t miss an opportunity to spend some days there and experience the beauty of nature. I have been invited to recite a Hindi poem in the first Akhil Bhartiya Navodit Hindi Kavi Adhiveshan by Prayas Organisation in Kota, Rajasthan on the 1st June 2016. So I decided to plan my journey for a day event into the 5 days vacation to spend 5 days in Rajasthan. So, I am sharing a plan of My Ideal Yatra for Rajasthan scheduled in the first week of the next month.

I always prefer trains to travel as we know that Indian railway provides safe traveling experience at the lowest and affordable fare but Indian railway’s online portal always appears busy while checking for trains and the availability so I always prefer for the hassle free experience to find or book tickets. does not only help to find trains but this website provides facility to book Flights, Trains, Buses, Cruises, Hotels, Holidays and much more online. As usual, I checked the trains to Kota Junction from Gondia Junction on the 30th May 2016 and displayed results of my searches within next few seconds. I also checked domestic flights from Nagpur to Kota on 30th or 31st May but I found none as there is not an airport available in Kota. Fortunately, confirm tickets were available in sleeper class so I reserved my ticket in the sleeper class of BSP-BGKT Express (Train No. 18243) for the stations between Gondia Jn. and Kota Jn. at the fare of Rs 460/-. I will be boarding in train at Gondia Jn. in the night at 23:09 IST and I will departure at Kota Jn. in the evening at 17:25 IST on the next day. Due to tiredness of around 15 hours journey, it won’t be possible for me to travel more in the evening and I will need some rest. Our program is scheduled on the 1st June which will be going on for the whole day. So I won’t be able to experience the beauty of Kota on 1st June as well. I was about to book hotels in Kota for two days stay from but our organizers informed us about the arrangement of room and meal by the organization. So I will stay in the room provided by our organizers on the night of 31st May and on 1st June. The program is arranged to give an opportunity of reciting a poem to newcomers by Prayas organization. We also have an opportunity to hear some well-known poets in the night. I am not sure about my chances, but I am hopeful to get an opportunity of reciting a poem in the night event as the organizers have invited me along with other four poets with special honour.

When I searched on, I found that Ajmer is not far away from Kota. So, I decided to go to Ajmer on the next day. I was looking forward to reserving a ticket in only Kota Jn.- Ajmer train from on that day but my friend Aishwarya Sen informed me about the anytime availability of private and government buses between Kota and Ajmer on convenient timings. I again checked buses availability at and found it helpful, so I decided to travel from Kota to Ajmer by bus. On the 2nd June, I will offer my prayers to the holy grave in the Dargah of  Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz Moin-ud-din Chishti Saheb. Although I belong to the Hindu community, I am highly influenced by the Islamism. A moment when I will be offering my prayers (Dua) to the most sacred and popular religious pilgrimage of the Islamism in Ajmer Sharif, the moment will certainly be a proudest and memorable experience for my lifetime. My friend Aishwarya also informed me about the history of a popular temple of Lord Brahma in Pushkar near Ajmer, I will try my level best to visit that temple also. But my first intention to add Ajmer in my yatra is just to offer my prayers in the Dargah Sharif. I was thinking to end my tour and return back to my city from Ajmer. But there is not a train availability from Ajmer to Kota on the 2nd and 3rd June. Being in Ajmer, I would have already missed the only train for Gondia Jn. from the Kota Jn. on the 2nd June at 11:20IST. So I searched flights from Ajmer to Nagpur on for my return journey on the midnight of 2nd June or on the 3rd June. I saw several flights as a result of my searches. I was thinking to book a flight in Jet Airways 9W 2054 or Air India Airlines AI 612 for the return journey, but then a sudden thought passed through my mind that Kota is a beautiful place for tourism, and if I spend even 10 days in the city, even then I cannot visit all places. So I changed my mood and decided to come back to Kota from Ajmer by bus and spend one more day in Kota. I was looking forward to booking hotels for 2 nights stay at Kota through but I managed my two nights stay at my friend’s room. Possibly, I will be returning to Kota at night.


Brahma Temple (Source: Wikipedia)

I have reserved 3rd June for the roaming around beautiful nearby locations in Kota. I don’t know about more places in the city but one place I would like to mention is Seven Wonders Park. Seven Wonders Park is the garden where replicas of all the seven wonders are situated at one place in the city Kota. So my visit to the Seven Wonders Park will much like to the world visit. I will also visit some other nearby locations in Kota.

I have reserved my train ticket in sleeper class for my return journey from Kota Jn. to Gondia Jn. on the 4th June 2016 in BGKT-BSP Express (Train No. 18244) at After boarding the train at 11.20IST in the train from Kota Junction, I will have been arrived in my city Gondia Jn. on the next day at 07:31IST from my Ideal Yatra of Rajasthan. Then I will be posting an another blog post in which I will share my experience of My Ideal Yatra in this vacation in Kota and Ajmer. Till then you just wish me luck and send your wishes for my happy journey.

Keep traveling and enjoy YOUR IDEAL YATRA in this summer vacation.
