There is a wonderful saying: “The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems, but those who learn to live with things that are less than perfect.” In this highly competitive world, life of corporate work-force is full of all kinds of strain and stress. There is no way we can escape from our jobs and its work pressure, but we can certainly counter it by enriching the fun and laughter quotient at work. 65 Colours of Rainbow is a collection of sixty-five short stories and caricatures based on real life, work-related incidents. This pleasingly warm collection writes with terrifying compassion about the things that matter most. The distinctive narrative caricatures demonstrate how extraordinary the ordinary can be!!

65 Colours of Rainbow by Smit Kapila

No one likes to live a monotonous life, following the same routine every single day. Work life can be such. Corporate work life is almost following the same routine everyday, being stressed out and is very very competitive too that often times people forget to enjoy their lives, instead they become this automaton that works and just works. It is when people take notice of some of the humorous moments that do occur in work life that they can balance out the stress by reminiscing some of the funny moments.

As the author likes to call it “countering the work pressure by enriching the fun and laughter quotient at work.”

65 Colours of Rainbow is a collection of sixty five short stories which are mostly based on corporate life. All of the stories are very short and it was easier to complete the book at one go. The author has also included caricatures in each story. All of the sketches suited the stories and they really enhanced the stories. The stories weren’t laugh out loud kind of funny. They were more more witty and held an underlying sense of humour.

Often times when I read books of humour or comedy genre, from the narrative it just seems to be a case of “trying too hard” but in case of 65 Colours of Rainbow, the stories were witty which I liked.

Since the book consists of short stories, there aren’t that many characters that I can talk about. The language used is simple and easy to understand. The cover also looks good and complements the content of the book. I feel like people who have a corporate job or just any site job would relate to these 65 comedic short stories better.

The good thing about the stories was that they were true to life and something which actually happens on a real life basis. The stories carry more of the type of humour which wouldn’t get to your brain easily but then when you read it again, you would find out the underlying witty humour. The stories are from different incidences and carries a different sense of humour in each of them, most of them being witty.

As I have previously said, the stories are very short. I would have loved if the stories were a bit more long. I wasn’t able to follow up on any plot or character development as the stories were short. Then again short stories are meant to be short.

The narration is that of a friendly one. It isn’t constricted. While reading, I felt as if one of my close mates was narrating these hilarious incidences. Definitely a light hearted read and would be a good choice if you’re looking for a temporary stress reliever.

FINAL THOUGHTS

While not all of the 65 stories were equally ticklish, I did like reading the book. It was a very light read and it kind of bridged me between two books while I was going through my readers block.

Anyone can read this book, if you’re into the humour genre.
