      "A Slut is just a woman with morals of a man."

      The story is nicely woven. Author has fabricated a captivating plot and used beautiful words (there were several quotes that I wanted to mark). I liked the way story unfolded- with each chapter focusing on one singular topic, like her relationship with each characters and other important aspects. The characters are simple and unique with their own distinct voices. This book contained a good amount of drama and had several instances which remind us the harsh realities of our world. The slow bu...

      Worth a read!

      This is a story of not one person but 3 different people or rather 3 different persona of the same person namely: Naazani, Naez and Nazaqat. The story is about Naazani, how she embraces prostitution as a profession and takes on the form of Nazaqat and how her decisions shape her life.

      Naazani is shown as someone who grows up to become a modern Indian girl, embracing her life to the maximum and taking independent decisions. She takes on prostitution as a profession, eventually quits and opens...

      A soulful read

      this book was a great read. While the idea of the story of a prostitute may look bold, the story leaves us with an open end to contemplate upon.

      You may hate her, you can't ignore her!

      Nazaqat - if at all you can call her a protagonist- is a product of absolute human desire, carved beautifully by the writer Hash Agrawal's pen, which seems to be rebelling with all so called social norms and pretensions, with utmost honesty.
      Seemingly rare character of Nazaqat, in fact, represents a realistic contemporary girl of cyber age. I would like to congratulate the writer for daring enough and for being true to his pen.
      Beautifully crafted characters, flawless narration and intelligen...
