I should have never made the two of you meet. You did the right thing. I don't think she ever loved Yuvraj either. Yuvraj and Natasha were a very popular item in The Presidency College-a perfect couple. But an old friend of Rana's, Rishab, who had taken a transfer to The Presidency College from The Bishop Boys' for a few days, made him meet Natasha, the girl with candy lips and the longest legs. Natasha and Rana had gotten drunk and had made out at Rana's place.
Natasha felt guilty about it, but ended up kissing him again on another day. Yuvraj had walked in on the two of them when they were kissing and Natasha had been royally dumped. Natasha had never been dumped before. Natasha, furious and angry, asked Rana to get Yuvraj beaten up.
Rana would have done that but Rishab knocked some sense into his head. He told Rana that Natasha was a vindictive bitch and that there was no need for him to interfere. When Rana went to fight Yuvraj, Rishab had already alerted the authorities beforehand about a fight that was going to happen. The fight-between the boys from the The Bishop Boys' School and Yuvraj-had to be stopped and Natasha's involvement in the whole incident became clear.
She was stripped of her position in the students' council. Yuvraj, too, had to lose his captaincy of the debating team for a while. After the fight, it was clear to him that Natasha neither liked nor loved him. But he was far from satisfied with that. He wanted to ask Natasha as to why she hadn't told him about Yuvraj when they had first kissed. His thoughts still in the past, Rana missed another point. The ball whizzed right by his head and he couldn't connect the racquet with it.
He was way too distracted. He knew she didn't love him, and neither did he. Or did he? As he served another point, he decided to steel himself and believe in what everyone said about her.
Natasha is a bitch. She threw her bag away and collapsed face down on her bed. She let out a sigh. No, she did not cry. She was not one of those girls who cried at everything. If they are happy, they cry. If they are sad, they cry. It took a lot more than a little teasing at school to break her. Though, this was more than just a little harmless teasing. They were inflicting pain intentionally.
But, she thought, she was not that weak. Her phone rang and she checked the display. Dad calling. Where are you? Are you okay? I'm okay. And I'm at home. Why do you sound so tensed?
I had no idea where you were.
Actually, I went to the dance class straight from school. Just got back,' she said. I'll take care the next time,' she apologized almost automatically. She loved her dad. He was the only person in the world who loved her just the way she was, without any judgement whatsoever.
She was after all, a photocopy of him-ambitious, ruthless and very effective. Anyway, I called to tell you about dinner. Be ready by eight.
You know I don't want to go,' Natasha injected before he could finish. She knew what it was all about. She knew she was hurting her dad, but there was no other way to it. She simply could not go.
Over the last few years, she had developed a hatred for her mom. It's her birthday today and I want to make it special for her. We are not doing anything fancy. Just dinner for the three of us.
The least you can do is to be there,' her dad said sternly. I want to go to sleep. I'm tired. I'm just asking you to get dressed and spend a couple of hours with us. Is that too much for you? Could you not give me that?
It has been a really terrible day. Just the thought of getting up and getting dressed Please Dad, I can't,' she tried to plead. It is your mother's birthday and all we are asking of you is to spend a couple of hours with us.
But all you want to do is sleep? I don't want to listen to anything at all. This is happening. You have no other option,' her dad said. You're her daughter. She loves you. I don't care if it's her birthday. I'm not coming,' she sighed. It's a command. I want you ready by eight. We'll leave home together,' her dad announced. She stayed silent.
She knew this was a lost battle.
She could never win an argument with her dad. She threw her phone aside and collapsed onto her bed. She closed her eyes and tried to pretend the whole day had been nothing but a dream. That she did not have to get ready and go out to some fancy restaurant and spend a hellish couple of hours with her loving mother to celebrate her birthday.
An hour later, she found herself entering the Taj, with her father walking alongside. She loved the place. There was nothing not to love.
Maybe she would just have her dinner silently and get it over and done with. She hoped her precious mom was not in a chatty mood. That would be a real pain. She let out a breath as she entered the hotel. The waiter receiving them smiled at her. She glared back. Somehow, she just knew that the night was going to be a disaster.
They were shown to their table and she was relieved to see that her mother was not there yet. Maybe she would not come. Maybe she would have to cancel at the last minute.
Or there might be an accident Her wishful thinking met a cruel end when she saw her dad get up from his seat. She followed his line of sight to see her mother make her way towards them.
She half-heartedly stood up too. This means a lot,' her mother replied and turned to look at Natasha. Behave,' her dad said sternly. There was a moment of awkward silence. They all took seats and placed their orders. There was an awkward silence at the table again.
No one knew what to say. Natasha did not mind. She was not in a mood for a conversation anyway. Her luck didn't last. I heard you have exams coming? Are you prepared? Do you want to talk about it? Awesome selection of topic. Why could they not have discussed the weather instead? It's okay. Maybe I could help? We are your parents. You can share your problems with us. Maybe we could just help you deal with it a little? Is it something we should be concerned about?
Natasha stared at the two of them wordlessly. Why were they trying this hard to make this work? They almost seemed desperate for her approval of her mother. Natasha could never-no, would never-forgive her mother. Quit it,' she said and turned to her food. The last thing she wanted was to discuss her school issues with her mother.
Maybe she would have liked talking to her dad about it. Or for that matter, absolutely anyone else. The rest of the dinner went uneventfully.
Natasha just sat silently and concentrated on her food. The only times when she spoke were when questions were directed specifically towards her. She replied in monosyllables. Three words max. She did not even look up from her food all that much. She ate quietly. When it was finally time to leave, the worst happened. Just when she was congratulating herself for coming out of the battle unscarred, her mother turned to her.
The two of us? Anything you want Just a movie or something, maybe Whatever you say,' her mother tried again. Or do anything at all with you? Stop it. Is this the way you talk to your mother? Apologize,' her father said. I won't.
Why would I? I did not lie. I just said what I feel. I do not want to have anything to do with her. I will not listen to you anymore. I came here for you. Not for her. Rating details. Sort order.
Dec 06, Rishi Prakash rated it really liked it. I don't remember when was the last time when the sequel was better than the original book. Sidharth takes the story forward from where he finished with "The Extra Class" and I must say that his first book was not a fluke at all. It will take you back once again to the sweet days of school and make you feel why the hell did you grow up! So definitely not for those who love their existing grown up life for sure!
There is this one para in the book which is just so right Without them, nothing seems okay. It does not really make sense at all times.
And is not supposed to" You have to read it to believe how foolishly you will fall in love all over again with all the years spent at school! View 2 comments.

Not americanized nor completely virtual. Good stereotypic and well written. Oct 28, Ashwini rated it really liked it. Feb 13, Priyanka Gupta rated it did not like it. Nothing much to talk about.

Why I should read this book is a difficult question to answer; More difficult to answer will be the regular jibes that will prompt out on my desktop commenting: But 'rest from reading' is something which I loathe more than myself. So in such course of Why I should read this book is a difficult question to answer; More difficult to answer will be the regular jibes that will prompt out on my desktop commenting: So in such course of time, I prefer to read books of such genres.
In layman's language, light reading is always necessary. Nobody can continue on with thrillers and heart chillers forever. A bit change of genre or switching to Layman's so called 'light reading' does seem to be an obvious choice. And why should it not be? Sidharth Oberoi possesses a special charm when it comes to simplicity and lucidity. It is not always important to present the content in a rhetorical way. The simpler,the better.
I would always recommend 'The Backbenchers series' as the best one to start with; in fact, the best book for novices. Is it so that the genre of teenage faces paucity of ideas? There was hardly any change well distinguished from the previous one, except the concept of forgiveness well woven by Oberoi. If a rotten mango can spoil the lot, why can't a juicy one transform the rotten ones to ripen?
Well, if that's not possible in mangoes, it does in Oberoi's teenage fiction. It's just an old convention to bring the villain to defeating edge at the end. Rarely does it happen that villains transform to heroes, but Oberoi brings that change in this book. Other than the concept of forgiveness, there is nothing that can touch the readers.
About The Author Sidharth Oberoi is a pseudonym. Jan 22, Kaajal rated it really liked it. I haven't yet read the prequel of the book. But yes, the book is quite engaging. A story woven with short and simple sentences where the protagonist copes up with life even after losing it all I.
It says.. Without them nothing seems ohkay. Life seems useless. And it is not supposed to. The matters of the heart are way too I haven't yet read the prequel of the book. The matters of the heart are way too twisted.
Oct 19, Nida Kazi rated it really liked it. I remember reading this book when i was in college 1st year I was sitting in my library and going through random books and came across this.
Its a good one especially the second half. Its a simple story line. Apr 07, Abinav Athreya rated it it was ok. This was better than the first edition of the book entirely for teenagers.
I needed a smaller book and there it was I had the hope that it would be better than first installment. It offered a philosophical solution that forgive and forget as its message. It continued with Natasha after her disastrous start in senior year of high school and ended on a good note. Dec 20, Priti rated it liked it. The book was as good as the previous one, "The Extra Class". In this book the focus is more on the life of Natasha and how she became this bitchy girl. I loved this book too as much as the earlier one.
For complete review: Sep 09, Thebookvamp rated it it was ok. I thought Natasha was too dominating and arrogant, in last few chapters it suddenly changed. Its really a very light read My feeling for this book is not a bad read.
