Title- The Breakthrough
Author- Ms. Megha Bajaj

I bought this book from my school because in that book we have our correspondent story. On seeing the book, it seemed it would have a regular story but after reading the book I got motivated.
I’m just like feeling so proud and so glad to be a girl and very excited to become a woman in future. It is because the story gives motivation to all the women.
Now about the story. The book name is Breakthrough. In particular, I want to tell one story from the book,’ the relationship called life.’ It is a story that describes about Chitra Prasad, where she meets 11 person in her life. It is all about her self-confidence. She loses her father at a young age. Her mother MS. Lalitha Menon took care of her three cute, little daughters and the youngest one is Ms. Chitra Prasad. Mrs. Menon faced many bad situations after the death of her husband. Somehow they handled problems. In need of money to take care of her children’s life, she started taking classes in her house. Starting with two children, the numbers grew to 10 and day by day the number of students increased. So they opened the school, NSN Matriculation Higher Secondary School in Chrompet as well in Chitlapakkam in Chennai. Later, the responsibility went to Ms. Chitra Prasad. They decided to start the third branch of the school in Chitlapakkam itself, which have all flourished.
The lead character is Madam Chitra Prasad and Madam Lalitha Menon.
The central idea of this story according to me, is about the life of hard working women. It is relevant because perseverance of the two women speaks for itself.
The style of writing was awesome. The book is like a motivational kit. My favourite part of the book and also my learning is that I get inspired by this story because, “Nothing is impossible as a woman.” It is all about self confidence and hard work. I am really proud to say that I’m a student studying in that school.
The best age to read this book is 12+
I would proudly give this rating 5/5 *****
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
