Ironically enough, Sneha is advised to strategise her way to success. In other words, the novel aesthetically offers a criticism of our present times where, in place of ‘self-realisation’ and ‘self-recognition’ the relentless and shameless ‘self-promotion’ is offered as the goal of life in this media-mediated, lit-fest-infested world.The novel also foregrounds Sneha’s firm belief in the ‘shabda-shakti’ or the power of the word. Expressing oneself through written word can give one a tremendous and unimaginable sense of power.
