Book Review: In God's Wishlist by Pradipta Panda

In God’s Wishlist
Author: Pradipta Panda
Publisher: Frog Books
Rating: 3/5

Life is like a sandwich!
Birth as one slice,
and death as the other.
What you put in-between
the slices, is up to you.
Is your sandwich tasty or sour?
(As said by Allan Rufus)

Definitely our lives have become sour owing to the treacherous and selfish nature of all of us. How would this sight appeal to God? Yes, this question strikes our brain often but we brush away the thought as it gets over-shadowed by evil priorities. But what if God decides to come down on Earth and workout a better system of living that is not only porous to pure thoughts but also works on the basics of love and trust? ‘In God’s wishlist’ is a fantasy novella that elicits the wishlist maintained by God and how beautifully he plans to implement and execute his plans for a better future of mankind.

This book introduces God as the protagonist of the plot. With the help of simple yet convincing dialogues/ narration, the author has done justice with the theme of the book. The subtle colours on the cover of the book make it seem appealing, but the real pleasure lies in reading and relating to the circumstances and the author’s mindset.

Everyone, at some point of their lives, feels the need to change the society and strive to make it a better place for living. But it really takes courage to stand tall and fight all odds. In this book, the concept of introducing change via the creator is commendable.

But there are several loopholes that might act as a negative for the book- several grammatical errors, incomplete words, and numerous typos.

Overall, the book exposes the readers to a new perspective and comes with an invisible tagline-‘Read at your own risk’.

PS: If you are open to different ideas and varied approaches, then this book must be given a try.
