Yamraj Number 5003
Yamraj has always been a fascinating character, much different from the rest of the Gods and Deities. This book Yamraj number 5003 presents a very unique perspective into the popular belief of Yamraj and Yamdoots as soul takes/transporters or whatever you want to call them. It’s certainly a food for thought, how this soul business works and author of the book, Mrinal Chatterjee has hit the right note.

Book review - An Unsuitable Woman Shinie Antony
An Unsuitable Woman compiled by Shinie Antony is a collection of short stories, essays, poems exploring the lives of freethinking woman striving hard to find their place in a society where men decide their present and future. Coming from the pens of several renowned Indian authors the narratives are all marvellous, invoking a strong feeling in the heart of the reader—a mix of strength and fear, empathy and repulsion, calmness and anger.
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.
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.
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.
Moongphali
Moongphali is a great read for the kids. Refreshing stories with a heart-warming experience with the adventures. All quick reads suitable as bedtime stories for the kids. The kids are just going to love them all. Recommended for children up to 7-8 years of age.
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.

Book Review: Scion of Ikshvaku

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).
