Synopsis : A beautiful woman. An anonymous stranger. A spine-chilling nightmare that blurs the thin line between online bullying and a full-blown real-life ordeal.
Tashi Chotten is a woman from Arunachal Pradesh working and living a normal life in New Delhi. Her world turns upside down one night when she receives an anonymous email with a picture attached. Curious, she clicks on it to find that the photograph is her own – a semi-naked one she had clicked almost four years back when she was in a relationship with Akash.
Tashi’s breath catches in her throat: how could this be possible? How could an image of four years ago come back to haunt her now? Was Akash doing this to take revenge on her for dumping him? But why would he wait so long if revenge was his intention? She had so many questions she needed the answers to, but first of all, Tashi had the anonymous sender’s strange request to oblige: should she fight back or should she give him what he was demanding?
In a fast-paced, mind-numbing tale of misplaced trust and poor data security, blackmail and friendship, lust and a love that had gone cold years back, will Tashi be able to regain control over her life and win the fight against the man who seems to be one step ahead of her, no matter which direction she chooses to go?
Review : What did Tashi Do is one of a kind extremely fast paced novella follows the story of Tashi,a girl from Arunachal Pradesh who falls into the trap of cyber crime.
First off, What did Tashi Do is a one-time read and once you start reading it, you won’t be able to contain yourself in the middle.
Anangsha has a way with words and I was impressed how she was successful in keeping me hooked till the very end,without giving out who the culprit is.
In an age,where even heinous crimes on woman like rape and abuse, often go unnoticed, cyber crime i.e crime in a virtual network is not often spoken for.
Anangsha, takes charge of the story and builds the character of Tashi,as a strong woman who is undeterred by the challenges she faces. She also implies how moral support is another factor that help victims of any crime choose wisely and hence fight for themselves. To stand against crime, is rather difficult when you’re on the spotlight but extremely important as it would further save hundreds of others from falling into the trap.
I donot want to give away more details about the plot and the characters because it is a story best enjoyed by reading yourself.
A nail-biting wholesome experience.
