“We are like a dried leaf hanging on a branch of a tree. When you snap and fall from the tree, you should glide where you want to go or the wind would blow you somewhere else.”
Kaveri, by Vaishnav Shravan, is a heart-warming story of an eighteen-year-old girl, living in a remote village of Karnataka with her parents beside the river Kaveri (also known as Cauvery). The girl got her name ‘Kaveri’ based on this sacred river of South India. This is a beautiful story representing a girl’s belief, her hopes, and her dream to achieve something in life, despite several unpropitious situations. Being brought up in a poor family with an over-protective mother, it is not an easy task to dream big. But in one’s life there is always one person who motivates you and always has a back on you. Here it is her teacher Sahasra, who home-schools Kaveri. She makes her father understand that Kaveri is a bright student and must be sent to a college in Tamil Nadu for higher studies. The story, thus in a way, intelligently, also portrays the river Kaveri dispute among the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
So, travel along with a small-town girl, Kaveri, on her passionate journey of achieving her dreams. It is inspiring as well as heart touching. The author described every character and their emotions so brilliantly that they felt real. Personally, I liked the character of Kaveri’s father as he believed in her daughter’s will and supported her throughout. Most importantly the message that the author wanted to send out from the story is very clear and strong. Believe in yourself, take authority of your own life, and discover your identity, your purpose in life.
