At a time when most of the celebrities beyond their age and era are diving to pen down there incomplete and half-hearted autobiography, a Bollywood actress remembered her mother in a literary way.
It can be also said that, Divya Dutta emotionally extended her
stay with her mother Nalini Dutta through her writings. After reading
the book very sincerely, I am now sure that she never ever thought
that if her book will be declared as a bestseller or not.
Dr. Nalini Dutta grown her baby as a good human being. The book is
nothing but an utterly touchy emotional account of a doctor mother
and her actor daughter. Hence in a very casual and free-flowing
language, Divya took her weeping heart out and unintentionally she
made the reader cry with her. In this very point the book succeeded.
It's a must read for everyone who are going to keep their mother
at old-age home or are in a confusing state that what their mother
have done for them. People who talk about celebrities staying
separately from their parents should also go through "Me and
Ma...Celebrating Zindagi" to know the other side of the coin
Shabana Azmi, who supposed to be a neighbour to them started
writing foreword with "They were inseparable; I could never
imagine Divya without her". And Divya's weeping heart said that,
"My mother, my soul mate". And it can't be truer.
The book has been published by Penguin
India and is a
