Love Bi The Way – An Unbiased Eye-Opener
In a time when the prejudice against the LGBT community is only just beginning to subside, author Bhaavna Arora comes up with Love Bi The Way, a book that is amazing in its exploration of the lives of two bisexual women. Love Bi The Way, with its catchy and clever title, has numerous gems peppered throughout the book that will make you nod in approval.
Give wings to a poor man’s aspirations and he will emerge from poverty only to be dependent on his providers.
With a crisp explanation of Stockholm Syndrome, the author gives reason to the mindsets of so many people being abused, physically or mentally. The book, within its first few pages, reaches this milestone. And one cannot help but think what barriers it will further break.
Sleep was an illusion, and trying to catch an illusion was a futile exercise.
It is so succinctly put, the explanation of media and the news they carry: For the media, any bad news is good news, and any good news is boring. And who wants boring?
The book bores truth through your brain. And when truth hits you in the middle of a fun banter, it makes it seem all the more impressive. Especially when it has something to do with children.
Children should never get exposed to a parent’s sins if they are to remain scar-free. And there are some things about our parents that we could do without knowing.
The uncertainty that comes with figuring out sexuality – unknown to the players in the story but obvious as dawn to the readers – sets the bells ringing in your mind. In addition to the uncertainty comes unexpected progressive thinking. And it makes you smile in appreciation.
There are little indicators in the story that point to where the plot goes. And that is a heavily appreciable fact in an author. Gradually, it bursts into a beautiful shower of fireworks. Just 80 pages in and I know that this book has the power to turn an opinion on its head.
Then comes one bit that holds true for creatives across the world.
We artists hate to fight against time. I want my time to stay with me because when time changes, everything changes. This is true, for when time and deadlines loom, creativity tends to take a beating. Laid-back gives the best results.
Sometimes I wish things were as simple as that. That we could be so consumed by our work that we would have no time for the things that make us sad. It is with ringing certainty that this makes you identify with the character!
Some places in the book have humour that invariably makes you laugh out loud. It might just be the right amount to keep you on tiptoe throughout the book.
Why Love Bi The Way is a path breaker:
There are many countries in the world that recognise equality for our LGBT fellows. Unfortunately, India is not one of them. Yet. With a need for progressive thinking roaring in our country, Love Bi The Way is a brave step forward. Hats off to Bhaavna Arora for bringing bisexuality out of the closet.
Despite the crux of the story revolving around bisexuality, it also brings other issues like domestic abuse, rape, and child molestation to the fore. When you read it, you’ll understand and tell yourself what you should NOT be. And that’s an important thing to achieve.
In addition to all this, Love Bi The Way is a true ode. An ode to friendship and how it can transform into love, irrespective of the genders of the people involved. Love, of the never ending kind. Love Bi The Way gives hope for the LGBT community in particular – a hope that you can live your life the way you want. The only thing that is stopping you is your fear of society. But in the end, it’s all about fighting the odds and making people understand.
Cheers, Bhaavna Arora, for Love Bi The Way and your stupendous effort to bring forward the thinking of today’s people!
