Praise for the book

The book has received lavish praise from readers


A big thank you for sending such a wonderful script. It was a delight to read. I found the plot quite engaging. The characters were fairly well-written and I especially liked the theme of workplace harassment shown from two viewpoints.

– Vani Pandey, Avid reader and book hoarder



New age romance starring real life characters with trials and tribulations of gender issues at work place.

– Sejal Sheth, Entrepreneur



Workspace is perhaps the most challenging environment for defining, acknowledging and respecting individual space. Overstepping lines here is so easy but can have disastrous consequences. Not A Perk is an enjoyable story that portrays different relationships with all their unpredictability, disappointments and agony on one hand, and hope and allure on the other.

– Vivek Sayal, Film-maker
