Book Review | Second Chance by Sandeep Jatwa | Do you believe in second chances?

Second Chance by Sandeep Jatwa - book Review

The word second chance is ambitious in itself, isn’t it? How many of us actually get a second chance for correcting our deeds? Perhaps, Shekhar Kapoor got his second chance.

This is a story about billionaire Shekhar Kapoor, owner of Aerowalk shoes. He did many wrong things to remain in the industry and is quite arrogant because of his money. He destroyed lives of many people because of his desires to always be on top. But then, something happens which he didn’t believe “can happen to him because he was rich”. Yes, the death!

Book Review | A Window to Her Dreams by Harshali Singh | What it takes to be a survivor?

A Window to Her Dreams by Harshali Singh

There are some books which make you feel happy and leaves you with a light mood. Then there are a few which are on difficult topics and make you want to discuss the theme. And finally there are a few ones which neither have a difficult topic nor the entertaining one, but yet they make you question your surroundings and beliefs. A Window to Her Dreams falls in the last category.

Book Review | The Whole Shebang by Lalita Iyer | Sticky bits of being a woman

The Whole Shebang by Lalita Iyer : Book Review

This is my first attempt to review a non-fiction over here (I mean on my blog). I don’t normally read non-fiction, but I must admit that I have enjoyed every single of them that I have read. This book was no different. I pretty enjoyed it. The first thing that attracts you towards this book is its title. It is a catchy one. Normally I find it little difficult to get hooked up into a non-fiction from the very first page. But this book was an exception on this parameter. It was right on the track from the very first page. This is a book by a woman, about women. It highlights some of the basic problems that women face on the daily basis and Lalita Iyer has presented them in a way that made you tickle.

Book Review | Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal | Funny, dark and authentic

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows : Book review

Before reading any further, just keep one thing in mind: This book is NOT just what the title says! I know, whenever anyone sees this title, the first thing that comes to mind is that it contains just the erotic stories. So if anyone doesn’t read Erotica, (s)he will certainly not pick this. Even, I thought so in the place but since I like reading Erotica, I didn’t mind. But today, when I am writing this review, I am really happy that I read this book. It has some erotic stories but yet it is a tale of self-being and expressing your desires openly. This book has so much going on beyond the steamy title.

Book Review | Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

Book Review: Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

I read this composition way back in February this year. This was my first attempt in reading the genre- Poetry, and to my expectations, it did surprise me. Though it was a quick read and I finished it within an hour, it was just BEAUTIFUL.

I had read other reviews about this book and I can understand why some people have a different opinion on this. Probably they have read too mean poetry and thus expected it to be something different. But for me, as a reader of poetry for the first time (obviously after school đŸ˜› ), it was wonderful.

Book Review | HARAPPA: Curse of the Blood River by Vineet Bajpai | A vanished civilization?

Harappa by Vineet Bajpai

Why I was intrigued towards reading this was because of the title itself: Harappa. I have never read anything about this civilization, of course except the course books. So, when I got a chance to review this book I, I grabbed it instantly. And I was not disappointed at all.
The story starts when Vidyut Shashtri, the main protagonist of the story, is called upon to Varanasi where his great-grandfather, Dwarka Shashtri, is on deathbed. Vidyut is a successful entrepreneur and an eligible bachelor who lives with her girlfriend Damini who is a journalist. When Vidyut reaches Varanasi, his great-grandfather starts telling him the story of the curse that has been brought upon his entire generation and the humankind by his ancestor Vivasvan Shatri.

Book Review | Lanka’s Princess by Kavita KanĂ© | A victim or a perpetrator?

Lanka's Princess by Kavita Kane | Book Review

This was my first read from the author Kavita Kane. I had heard great things about her work and how she chooses different female characters from Indian mythology and present them with a new angle. People suggested that I should start with her first book, but rather I picked this one as I already had its copy. And I would say, I loved Kavita Kané and her unusual story about Surpanakha.
Ramayana is the epic tale which I believe every Indian have heard while growing up. All the main characters are household names – Ram, Laxman, Sita, Ravan. But the character of Surpanakha is something that we grew up hating. We have been taught that how Laxman cut her nose and in turn, Ravan abducted Sita and then it started the epic war between Ram and Ravan. But do we know more than this about Surpanakha? Do we know who was Surpanakha other than a girl having a cut nose and sister of Ravan? I surely hadn’t known. This story is a fresh take on Surpanakha’s life and lets you go to the details of why she did what she did.
