A head combination!

#Rosewine & #50shadesofgrey.

Why did I plan to read the most popular yet controversial book series of our times, The Fifty shades series by E L James? Having authored a book, #BeyondTheVeil-The Journey Of An #Indian Girl, which speaks of the societal pressure and its unnecessary norms, I feel this is an apt book to read and analyse the author’s perspective. Initially I was aversive to read this book, I had read 100 pages or so and given up on it because of the #kinky #erotica. But I soon came across a sane person reading it and she reminded me how this is reality. 

Don’t believe me? Well, you never will because we have learnt to live on the dictates of the people around us. Be it men or women, we have lost ourselves in the questioning crowd, you know those “char log” who keep asking weird questions about our personal life? What Christian Grey is and what Ana Steel is, is just a reflection of our society. BDSM has existed in our society for the longest time but we have been ignorant. We have never given it a thought. Marital rape, what is it? Arrange marriages, what is it? We are bound to the customs as much as a submissive is. The dominant in our case will always be our husband and the society which has laid down the rules of how a man ought to behave and vice versa. 

When I talk about Grey and Steele, don’t you see a resemblance? “Steele” holds her ground firm, she is not going to give up on her love and neither on her self esteem. Grey? Has chances of swaying towards a better self. 

What truly makes this series endearing is the presentation of a #lovestory where the dominant gives up on his past and submits to love wholeheartedly.
