Second Hear Review by Ashar Neyaz

Second heart not only picturized the amazing details, ignorance of diseases but also the love which a person has for other human being. “Kabhi kabhi takleef insaan ko kareeb le aati hai and insaan ko pata bhi nahi chalta ki kab pyaar ki khushboo unko kahan kheench le jaati hai.” It’s a go to book for everyone who at some point of life starts ignoring the nascent stage of the problem and find themselves in an inescapable situation. 7 more words
