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: 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).
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.

Invisible Ties - Nadya A.R.
Invisible ties by Nadya A.R. is the story of Noor and her struggles in rediscovering herself. The book has received great ratings and reviews including some highly-encouraging words from renowned people. And, as soon as you turn a few pages you’ll understand why. The words are visible. The descriptions of the settings and people and everything else is so picturesque that you immediately drown in its magic.
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.
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.
Canvas of a mind
Set in the beautiful background of Kalimpong, Canvas of a mind, by Purba Chakraborty is a quick & decent read. Refreshing with engaging & interesting plot.
The Life of Hinduism
The Life of Hinduism is a collection of essays about Hinduism written and published by different authors from different social backgrounds, and nations. I would like to recommend the book to those who would like to learn more about Hinduism. Even those who are well-versed with the concepts of Hinduism may take something or other from the book eventually.
