The Mystery of Bila Land
‘The Mystery of Bila Land’ is a well-weaved, amusing book written by Nitish Krishna. I must congratulate the author for being a good story weaver. I really loved the overall plot. The story revolves around Vibhas, a boy who had been having strange dreams of a warrior meditating at the foot of snow-capped mountains. The dreams are mostly overwhelming and troubles him. And, that arouses in him the interest of mountain climbing.
The Poetry Of A Common Indian Female: Real Women, Real Stories of Hope and Optimism!
Before I even go to the book review I’d like congratulate the author for his tremendous efforts in bringing this book to reality. Not only the concept is quite commendable, the presentation of the book, including the book cover, bookmark and everything else is great.
Book-Review-Faceless
At first I was pretty excited to read the book since superhero stuff has always fascinated me. Also, the blurb had my expectations raised. However, I don’t think that actual book was anywhere up to my anticipations. First of all, the name ‘faceless’ could have been a great name, if it was significant to the story in any way

Book Review Pawan The Flying Accountant
I have to admit Pawan: The Flying Accountant is one of the best books I have from Indian authors recently. Not because it was great on writing elements, but because it was interesting and kept me hooked until I finished it. The book is about Pawan, a depressed, dejected and rejected fellow who happened to be an accountant, and has lost the will to live. Why else would he try to get himself killed, despite knowing he cannot be killed.
Ravana Leela
Almost every Indian, particularly Hindu, is well-versed with Ramayana, the epic mythology involving Lord Rama, most popular of the Vishnu avatars, his consort Lady Sita and brother Laxman. Though, Ravana Leela has its roots within the epic Ramayana, this book tells the tale in a very different and refreshing way.
Book Review - The Fault In Our Stars
I would like to award this book with four stars out of five. The topic chosen by the author is a critical topic that can only be dealt with care and compassion. The story is about Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters, both victims of different kinds of cancers. The main story starts off when Hazel Grace finds a blue-eyed boy staring her throughout a Cancer Support group in the literal heart of Jesus.

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).
