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.

Listening For Well-Being is great book by Arun Maira, emphasizing on the true potential on listening to solve all sorts of problems. The language and style is simple, yet fun at times, and authoritative at other times. Pace is great as well. Researched well. Totally recommended!

Book Review: Luv.net
I received the e-book from author. I am sorry but no matter how much I try I cannot provide much of a positive response. I read the book (somehow) and here is my review. Considering it was a self-published book, and first attempt at that I would start by saying that this review is not to discourage or disrespect the author.
The Indigo Sun by Rupa Bhullar
Indigo Sun is about Maya, an NRI girl who returns to Rajasthan in search of her true self, and a purpose. On her journey she travels places and meet several people, finding herself joy in small events. The book has received nice ratings. The exploration of culture-rich Rajasthan was interesting. Excellent writing.
