“Why Me” establishes the relationship between one’s response to a certain incident and its end result

Author of numerous critically thought-provoking books including The Lobby, The Balcony, and The Bazaar, pens another ravishing book titled Why Me. Adroitly integrating the butterfly effect, he explicates how a simple incident can create a chain of damaging events in one’s life.

Defined as the sensitive dependence on initial conditions, where a small change at one place in a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences to a later state, Chalabi applies and simplifies this idea known to physicists as the butterfly effect in his new novel. Through his alter ego, Ramiz Alkhishin, he demonstrates through ten short plays that the consequence of any unexpected incident is determined, not by the incident itself, but by how one reacts to it.    

Ramiz Alkhishin is a grocer who has a passion for a life that is as independent as possible from its surroundings. In his job requiring interaction, he comes to notice that when any of his grocery shop customers face a fluke incident in life, a question that they never seem to fail to ask is “Why me?” But to him, the answer is as simple: “It is never you in particular. It is just that an event occurs in your presence. How you and others react to this event creates realities out of a multi-universe of possibilities.”

Indeed, every consequence is a result of one’s action. Rather than blaming fate, Why Me compels readers to look into the situation at hand and scrutinize the given prior to confronting it.
