Veda (the protagonist) with her dreams, broken dreams and new dreams helps you understand that the Rules You Break somewhere mold you and Bring the Inner You Out. Take this journey and go through torrid emotions that come with deep friendships, loss and the fight between your heart and brain to be a Rule Follower or a Rule Breaker.
Amongst the Simple and highly interesting plots, sub-plots- You are in Awe of What Magic Preeti Shenoy can create with her words- she simply paints pictures with her words in your mind. At one point- you are breathing the fresh mountain air in Joshimath and feel claustrophobic the other moment while sitting in a cramped flat in Pune. This story is of Liberation- Finding the Rules That Actually Define You!
It is surely one of the matured and sensitivity- laden stories that you will only put the wings beneath your wings! Here's to many many more!
One tip- Dont Binge read it- let the words hit the right corners of your mind and create its magic.
Anyone just can connect to the story. The story talks about sibling bonding, friendship which has been shown beautifully through letters.
Veda the main protagonist who is strong willed & determined yet timid & passive stands out very well throughout the book and the reader can relate to the character. It can be any individual in general who follows all the rules and struggles to stand up for themselves due to societal conditioning.
Her sudden unplanned marriage,initial marriage troubles,deteriorated performances in academics,the societal conditioning she was brought up with due to which she keeps mum when she is being humiliated in order to adhere to her rules. How she steps out of her comfort zone and breaks the rules & discovers herself is the crux of the story.
How she overcomes it in the end has been described beautifully.
Quotes like 'Carve Your Path' and many other thoughtful sentences are just very simple yet so deep.
The other part in the story is SANKALP an organisation which tries to do it's bit to help children from poor families which is the turning point in Veda's story which describes the struggles,challenges the school children from the poor families go through to educate themselves. Just moves you so much and sub consciously motivates to contribute for their well being.
The challenges,efforts the trio Kanika,Veda and Ron go through to stabilise and keep it going to ensure students benefit till the end to achieve their goal of 100% results of Class 10 is just terrific. Kanika's character as a no-nonsense,firm yet sensitive and a sympathetic is terrific.
Best Sequence in the story : The confrontation with the Inquiry Committee.
Best characters in the story : Veda, Vidya,Kanika,Bhuwwan
Funny characters in the story : Ron(his troubles to get used to Indian culture during his stay in Pune), Sanju.

The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy .
Foreword : What strikes to you about this book is its simple and easy to comprehend language. The title is quite intriguing too and makes you want to explore further. .
About the book: This is the story of Veda, brought up as a quintessential girl next door, going about her normal life. It is narrative about how this Veda changes. How marriage and succeeding circumstances result in bringing out her tough side, a side she never new existed . How love in different forms touches Veda's life and how she emerges stronger for it. Preeti has wonderfully captured by way of the letters in this book, the protagonists life and the changes it undergoes. A thought provoking read .
Takeaway : Like a soft egg that is unwilling immersed in hot water and ends up boiled and taut, sometimes adverse circumstances do make for a stronger person. .
