The Secret Wish List (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.93

Published in 2012, The Secret Wishlist is a poignant novel about friendship, relationships and following one’s heart in order to find inner happiness.

Summary Of The Book

The Secret Wish List is a riveting story about the protagonist Diksha, who at the tender age of 16 lives the life of a typical carefree teenager. She juggles school work and fun, amidst schoolgirl crushes on boys including Ankit, and gossip and girl talk with her best friend. However, one day, an innocent crush explodes into a chain of irreversible events that result in changing her life forever. 18 years later, Diksha, the feisty, fun loving teenager, has been replaced by a very different version of her younger self. Now, at the age of 35, she is a jaded and bored housewife beneath the facade of a happily married woman. Married at 19 to Sandeep, a successful professional, and mother to a bright young boy, she is an unhappy woman who is dissatisfied in her loveless marriage and trapped in a domestic setting she no longer feels connected to.

When an unfortunate incident involving her cousin’s husband takes place, it brings all her unmet hopes and desires to the fore, opening up possibilities Diksha never felt she would find again. Stemming from a desire to fulfill her hopes and dreams, a secret wish list is born. It urges Diksha to following her heart and explore the possibilities of unrequited love that she denied herself for so many years. The Secret Wish List is a sensitive account of a woman’s soul searching and attempts at self discovery in order to find true happiness. Its intriguing storyline tackles the moral dilemma and temptations of an extramarital affair, the elusive nature of true love and whether it really does exist, the fragility of friendship and relationships, and the significance of one’s dreams.

The Secret Wish List is considered a bestseller, like most other novels by the same author.

1. I too had a love story - Ravinder Singh
2. That's the way we met- Sudeep Nagarkar

Engrossing Saga of Indian Women

An engrossing tale of an Indian Women who as a young girl has ambitions and her own identity. Yet, she succumbs to parental pressures and ends up getting married to someone she doesn't look up. She has an independent house, a smart kid, high earning husband and supposedly everything that typical conservative Indian Parents would call for in a perfect Married life. But there's definitely more to life. An identity for oneself, a relationship with your better half that gives you space to breathe and be yourself, a friend in a husband. These are the traits Diksha never finds in her husband. A s... ()

She has an independent house, a smart kid, high earning husband and supposedly everything that typical conservative Indian Parents would call for in a perfect Married life. But there's definitely more to life. An identity for oneself, a relationship with your better half that gives you space to breathe and be yourself, a friend in a husband. These are the traits Diksha never finds in her husband. A sequence of events that lead her to realizing what she wants our of life and that gives birth to her "Secret Wishlist".
The narration is beautiful and only an Author of the Caliber of Preeti Shenoy can put forth her ideas so flawlessly that you build an instant connect. Her style of writing hits you gently yet deep within, that you would want to get up and take charge of your life, married or unmarried, young or old, the novel will push you to pause and think if you are what you wanted in life. If not, it's time to get up and get going. Preeti Shenoy has a clear and lucid style of writing that keeps you gripped to the novel. I finished it in 3 hours straight and I am all charged up to take ownership of my life.

VERY ENRICHING READ

I loved ???life is what you make it??? by the same author. Infact it was first book of her that I read. I equally enjoyed, ???tea for two and piece of cake???. So I was very excited to read, ???the secret wishlist??? specially since I had preordered it and got a personalized author signed book.

The interesting and intriguing story of protagonist Diksha made me read the complete book in one go. Though at some places I found striking similarities with ???tea for two and a piece of cake??? yet I could appreciate the subtle and nuanced subtext that the author weaves in so effortlessly in this...

The interesting and intriguing story of protagonist Diksha made me read the complete book in one go. Though at some places I found striking similarities with ???tea for two and a piece of cake??? yet I could appreciate the subtle and nuanced subtext that the author weaves in so effortlessly in this book.

If I have to say, what???s the one thing about Mrs Shenoy???s books that I admire most. It will be undoubtedly her realistic portrayal of a marriage. Like her previous book this one is bang-on on the biggest weakness in the institution of marriage specially in the Indian context, and it is the MCP AND NARROW MINDED INDIAN MEN. Surely not all Indian men are so, but most are. I loved how the entire plot, setting , backdrop, characters are SO REAL. They are flawed and that???s make them even more relatable. It???s not a fairy tale story and neither are the characters Godly.

I hope that Mrs Shenoy continues to write more such books that are real, socially relevant and absolutely enjoyable. What further reflects in all her books is her own real life persona and her genuine niceness. Mrs. Preeti Shenoy, thanks for being in our times. The way you portray ???agenda-less friendships??? in your books conveys volumes about your faith in friendship.

The story focusses on living rather than merely existing. The climax might not be so conservative but it sure is a feel good, happy ending.Do fill in the blanks and give life to your wishes.

As i was reading the book,i felt each time that i was there in the scene witnessing all those..It is a must read for everyone,(specially husbands as "Samir" who are so narrow minded) so that they realise how much little things which are otherwise ignored has the ability to hurt so much...Folks,you should definitely get hold of this one and if you know someone who is as narrow minded as Sammer or as confused as "Diksha" gift them this book...It could change the way of their lives...and with "The Secret Wishlist" you can't call Preeti just another writer but she makes sure that all of her books touch lives of many who are trapped in various situations...Hat's off...Hope it becomes a bestseller soon...
Keep writing,keep touching lives...God bless

Readable..

It's not your run of the mill love stories which are coming in hordes to the market but nor is it 'you can't put it down' read.
The universe does conspire and answer, so yes go ahead and make your wish list, secret or known, doesn't matter!
