Expiry Date—not the end
Anant—the protagonist, while contemplating on his unsuccessful life, finds a new-born baby-girl abandoned in a garbage bin. The event changes first his perspective on life, then his life itself. He matures to take the brunt of destiny bravely when he knows why fate has punished him with unhappiness. He finds out the cause of his misery—that one mistake of his past.
You do not know when a tear drop rolls down your cheeks or when you catch yourself smiling at your self—so simply involving are the twists of his fate that you are drawn-in to empathize with Anant. One love that he lost in ignorance, another love that he found but could not cherish, and the tumultuous sweet and sour events lead him to find the true meaning of love all over again. Will he be third time lucky?
The new-born baby-girl—abandoned to die in the garbage bin. With rodents nibbling at her in the scorching tropical heat of Mumbai—was she destined to die a torturous death?
Asmi—the young widow is staring at a strange travesty of fate. Educated abroad, she was pushed to the edge to maintain her sanity and self-respect while withstanding the expectations of orthodox Indian traditions, when life let loose flood of miseries upon her.
Jayant—flying on the wings of positivity, discovers and propagates a paradigm shift to our understanding of the divine; he is an example of meaningful living.
Death—the expiry date of our life
But does it mean the end dot in a life sentence?
Living a life full of love is not just having life but owning it, being alive in life, living as living should be, life as life should be—experiencing life, negotiating with the lows, breezing through the highs, learning from our own experience—the first hand experience of living
About the author
This is Anita Jain from India. Expiry Date—not the end is my first book.
It is a contemporary romance fiction about love and philosophy of life.
Expiry date is not a love story—it is the story of love
To match my passion to read I pursued the Masters degree in English literature, followed by a Diploma in Journalism. With an amiable disposition and an inquisitive mind capable of churning creative thoughts—I could not make much of this rare combination in my life. Like my protagonist, perhaps, I was a social misfit—a round peg in a square hole.
Though confident enough, I could never drape my confidence with outrageous colors of over-confidence. I always tried to be my real self, but being overtly self-conscious made people underestimate my capabilities or doubt my abilities, however I always surpassed their expectations, frankly, also my own.
After years of contemplation and analysis of my persona I have reached a point where I am comfortable in my skin—that is what I call being successful.
I would not have suggested this if asked a few years earlier, but now I can boldly say, it is easier to be your true self.
