  • Schizophrenia is challenging disorder often characterized by abnormal social behaviour and a significantly altered perception of reality Its treatment largely depends on medications and psychosocial interventions but no single approach is widely considered effective for all patients Through this book I offer my readers a glimpse into the multifaceted world of schizophrenSchizophrenia is challenging disorder often characterized by abnormal social behaviour and a significantly altered perception of reality Its treatment largely depends on medications and psychosocial interventions but no single approach is widely considered effective for all patients Through this book I offer my readers a glimpse into the multifaceted world of schizophrenia in the form of fictitious storyline revolving around two characters Monty the psychotic part and Virginia the non psychotic part The boundary between the two is permeable Monty conjures up Gulabi , following his abrupt separation from his long time partner, while Virginia, having suffered from a personal loss sets out to follow her lifelong aspiration to travel the world.There are some books that speak than the ratings So if you are in hurry to read a masala novel, you will be disappointed and end up feeling this is not my taste.For those, who are not just seeking emotional journey but keeps their consciousness along, this book is for you.This book requires that you do not leave your mind away and escape from reality to enter the fiction world But this book will bring fiction closest to reality Reality as it as, it can be disturbing, confusing, meaningful and eccentric as well.

        a writer by passion.Writing for him is means of rehabilitating the self and finding the home.


    1. ”There might be an invisible line between what is known to the senses and what is known through memories, thoughts and impressions. How did this invisible fine line exist?”After reading this short story, I believe the author’s answer to the question above is simply, “IT DOES NOT EXIST.” This is a very perplexing read but compelling at the same time. The author made a very bold and risky move in creating a short story that will question your senses and perception of what is real and not [...]

    2. This book was unlike anything I have read in a long time, if not ever. I thank the author for approaching me to give his book a chance. I also admire his bravery in using writing as his experience of his own challenge with the much misunderstood mental condition of Schizophrenia. This was a wonderful piece of work that I could tell had a lot of heart and soul weaved through. Truth too.Through this book I offer my readers a glimpse into the multifaceted world of schizophrenia in the form of ficti [...]

    3. Where is it headed?First of all a huge thanks to the author for providing me a copy of the book Had i not read the author biography, this review would have been completely different. I guess the bio helped me understand the emotions and the background to the book a bit, but even being considerate the truth is that the book failed to reach its destination. In fact i am afraid it had a bad take off too.Gulabi shows a parallel journey of two characters but the trouble is that both of their stories [...]

    4. This was a book I received (from the author) through the giveaways/first-reads program. Let me start off by saying that this is a really hard book for me to rate. Content--I really liked it! Would definitely rate this a 4. Flow of reading, grammar, word choice, etc, were really difficult for me to get through. Would rate this a 2. However, it is important to note that the author's second language is English. The writing is certainly better than I could ever hope to do in a second language, but b [...]

    5. The author, Pankaj Suneja , sent me this e-book, Gulabi, in exchange of an honest review. Well, it was an extremely peculiar, dark book, I must admit. Very short too, merely 76 pages. Initially, I thought the language is average, but in certain places, the language and vocabulary shine too. Overall, I think the profoundness of the story overshadows the language, and the reader is immersed in the plot. The story of the schizophrenic patient, Monty is described adroitly. His characterization is go [...]

    6. After the abrupt end of a relationship, Monty finds himself emotionally adrift and commits suicide. But does he, really? Because while his half-Kuwaiti, half-New Zealander friend Virginia goes off on a sabbatical, touring the world and trying to discover life and herself, Monty finds a confidant: Gulabi. Gulabi, whom no-one else but he can see or hear, but who is more real to Monty than anyone else. The note at the end of Gulabi explains that the author Pankaj Suneja went through a psychotic epi [...]

    7. 2.5 StarsThis book disappointed me. The plot was very intriguing and unlike any I have ever read, and I am pretty sure that I would have enjoyed it more if it was well-written.At first it was really difficult for me to grasp what was happening in the story, and it took me a while to understand. I had to go back and read the description of the story a couple of times to understand what was happening.The writing was pretty bland, but at some places it was good, too. There were large chunks of info [...]

    8. The books starts on sad note, “Monty” is a university student, he was in a long distance relationship with a girl and unfortunately parts ways with her. Now how does he cope up with the break-up? What happens to him? how does he come in contact with Gulabi and how his life changes? Many questions indeed… aren’t they ? While Monty has his set of worries , Somewhere, in a different place a beautiful young girl Virginia is feeling sad and is looking for a person to speak, the reason, her bo [...]

    9. I would have given it five stars if only it was lengtheir. The author wrote a short story which described about schizophrenia or psychosis, the first time I came across this word was in my neighborhood. A kid of not more than ten is suffering from psychosis, she talks to herself , confuses over normal stuff, has problems in understanding people and most of the time , she smiles over ordinary things. She is young but looks at life better than us, grinning half the time and is the crux of her fami [...]

    10. It is one thing to maintain suspense in a story for the sake of its quality, but quite another to let the story perplex its readers. It might be because I’m not used to reading psychological novels that made it difficult for me to get a proper foothold. All I could do for most of the story is make random guesses hoping to get the hang of the plot, before the end of the story at least, which took a definite toll on my enjoyment factor.I did, however, find no fault with the writing. The concept [...]

    11. For me, this was like an interesting experiment because you have before you characters who normalize the abnormal; the unreal is real. Or rather only the unreal is real. I agree these are very subjective notions but this is what I felt after reading the first few pages of the book (and ohI found this rather short I wished to read more) This is interesting, yet again, for another reason: Though I started reading expecting to find a schizophrenic character and an array of his psychosis, I think I [...]

    12. I received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review. I think before reading this book, one should read exactly how this book came about. Interestingly, the author is schizophrenic and while completing his Master of Arts degree in Psychology, and while trying to understand the schizophrenic mind and write, stopped taking his medication. He hallucinated the person Gulabi. He then write a story ( I don't know that I'd call it a book at 76 pages) about a man Monty meeting Gulabi [...]

    13. First of all I would like to thank Pankaj Suneja for sending a copy of his book for an honest review.This book tells the story of two people: Monty and Virginia. Monty is a college student who just broke up with his long distance girl friend and Virginia's boyfriend just left her for his family. This story shows us how Monty and Virginia deal with their situations. As a student of psychology I loved the insight this book gave me on schizophrenia and psychosis. Coming to my experience of reading [...]

    14. Gulabi is an interesting little book following two protagonists. Monty is a troubled university student, and Virginia, his girlfriend, leaves him to travel the world. While Monty's life spirals downward, Virginia's life is fun and exciting. But will they both eventually meet again? This book is a surreal and sad look into schizophrenia and the mind, written in a very unconventional and original style.

    15. This is a must read!!!! It is very heavy and filled with difficult and painful experiences but its raw and real and perfectazing, beautiful and heart wrenching book. At a couple points while reading this book I cried which doesn't usually happen to me. I loved reading this book and I definitely recommend it to all book lovers

    16. Amazing read!I read this book recently and I have to say, I am completely blown away. His writing style is fresh and unique. The writer exposes the stories in such a way that you are left thinking about questions you should have asked and questions you start asking yourself. This book left me in a thinking trance mode for days. I am looking forward to read more from him!

    17. It was good. I liked it.Though the writings were little lame and emotions were little loose. In fact sometimes intangible. But situations has taken them over and looked perfectly real.The story, till from start to end, was gripping.Nice read.The world of hallucinations, of Monty, convincingly moved me in the spiral where he was slipping. I liked the word 'Modality'.

    18. The book opens with a very good quote of Calvin in the movie Ruby Sparks. From that quote, you can easily comprehend the theme of the story. I will not mention the quote here for the sake of the story. This story strengthens the general notions about relationships; one, long distance relationships seldom work and two, as humans we have a constant desire to be in a relationship. It will seem like the author is experimenting with parallel narration, but you will get to know later that he is not. T [...]

    19. Note: The author was kind enough to send me an e-book for review. Thanks Pankaj!Rating: 3.5Schizophrenia, I know, the term sounds too complicated. Everyone at a point of time must have had the symptoms such false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, auditory hallucinations (how many of us hear our cellphone ringing when it is not ;). The author has taken an effort to breakdown the complexity of the disorder and gives us glimpse of the cause, the symptoms and its effect on an individual. Throug [...]

    20. Gulabi. As the name suggests, the story isn't at all rosy in any way yet it is one that tends to stay with you at the end and seriously make you ponder upon what you've read. Not only is the story crisp in its narration and downright to the point, the author maintains that tempo of mystery and the uncertainty that appears to cloud the judgment and thought-process of one and all from time to time.Having read through the story, I felt wanting. I felt as if 'This can't be it.' and that in itself sp [...]

    21. Thanks a lot to Pankaj for giving me the book for reading.Its a different kind of book to the ones I read. Its interesting book to read.Monty is out of his long distance relation with his girlfriend and is state of depression. Virginia is also out of a relation with a married partner.Monty finds Gulabi and the sweet relation starts. The feeling that you can see someone and not touch. That someone can leave you just by your thoughts is beautifully portrayed.And then you realize that everything is [...]

    22. GULABI is an unusual read, a novella which unconventional to say the least. It’s a short read in which there are two protagonists who, for the most part, lead totally separate lives. Their lives to intersect at a point, but then one of them dies, continuing his life in an undead sort of way. And no, he’s not a vampire. After that, the paths diverge. Will they meet again? Do they even care if they do?Gulabi, an Indian character, appears intermittently to one of the protagonists, when he cross [...]

    23. Well,What can I say about this book??To be honest, as soon as I got the book, I started reading it and as and when the story progressed, I started thinking as to who this author is and where is he taking the story but only in the end I could be able to realize the actual essence of the story.This is a short story but has got few characters within it. Hence I would suggest the readers to finish it in one go because if you give a break and come back to read, you may not be able to take it forward [...]

    24. I understand the concept of this story but honestly I got lost here. I did not feel engage enough to render an understanding of the not so obvious. The psychosis and hallucination I definitely saw through your words. The experiences of episodes was an eye opener for me and this caused me to read further. Why I got lost throughout the book? Distinguishing the characters, is it he or was it she? Don't get me wrong I applaud the effort and experiment to bring forth awareness of schizophrenia and be [...]

    25. The author Pankaj Suneja sent me the pdf of his creation for a honest review, I thank him for that. The story and the writing reminds me a bit of the magical realism of Haruki Marakami's novels, but as a whole the text and the characters feel a bit flat and not enough juice had been added into them. Although the chaotic state of mind the MC is being trapped in is interesting enough, there are rooms for improvement, 3 stars.

    26. Note: The author was kind enough to send me an e-book for review. Thanks Pankaj! a very very confusing book!!!!!

    27. A twisted version of Ruby SparksI have received a RC(Reading Copy) from the author to review the book; Gulabi. Let me just get to the point:I don't usually read dark novels because they end up taking a toll on me. But being in love with books, I couldn't stop myself.It was surprisingly shorter than I expected. The reason it took so long for me to review this is because I keep getting headaches every time I think about this book.Not because it's bad or anything. It's just a little troubling.The a [...]

    28. Thanks to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my rating/review in any way. Around a week back, I had attended a class on psychiatry. The one thing that stands out particularly for me is that my faculty stressed repeatedly, by giving various examples from his own practise, the difficulties which people with schizophrenia face. What they face and go through cannot be imagined by anyone except themselves. Even their loved ones do not su [...]
