Book Review: Scion of Ikshvaku
There is hardly anyone who isn’t familiar with Ramayana. There have been several TV series directly or indirectly based upon the same epic storyline, and as a book too this isn’t the first effort (of course the Valmiki’s Ramayana and Tulsidas’ Ramcharit manasa were the original ones).

The book explores various broad aspects of life in this region, including British rule, Casteism, Zamindari system, rural life, mental makeup of rural India, religious beliefs along with some finer emotions as well like the enigma around relationships, relationships between husband and wife, father and daughter etc.

Secret Life of Fat - Sylvia Tara
Who loves fat? I guess no one. “The Secret Life of Fat”, an enlightening book by Sylvia Tara answers all of our questions related to fat. After reading the book no one is going to look at fat the same way they did before. And, hopefully, the new insight into fat is going to help them a great deal. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
The Demon Hunter of Chottanikkara: A Supernatural Thriller
The Demon Hunter of Chottanikkara' takes place in Chottanikkara, a small village in Kerala, that is haunted by all kinds of demon. The author uses a simple, yet a fluent language. The buildup of characters was excellent. I would recommend the book to all the fantasy book lovers, who are also interested in stories based on Indian Mythology.

Book review – Wings of Courage
“Wings of Courage” as the name suggests is a story about courage. Whose courage? Yours and mine if we really decide to juice out something from it, beautifully portrayed through the protagonist Saksham. The story is about Saksham, a fairly rich boy, just when he was about to finish his graduation, undergoes a series of incidents and finds himself struggling between his love life, his career, and the socio-political condition of India.
