American Maharajah – book review

A

Mark’s second novel was almost a treat for that category of readers who rather like reading the novels which are little slow in build up and rather simple in nature but mature in theme and sufficient in plot; in short, the readers who don’t appreciate very much the bombardment of emotions heavily pinned upon themselves by the authors who like to arouse the sentiments this way… American Maharajah...

The Modern Romance Authors

T

The romance writing in India has surely touched new dimensions in the recent years; this is an undeniable fact which can surely be disputed with arguments but cannot be denied! However, we will have to put our heads in the process of thinking and find for ourselves that what these new authors have been doing with the romance genre and to what extent they take it forward. For most of the critical...

7 Habits of Highly Effective People – book review

7

7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a bestselling book by Stephen R. Covey and since the publication in 1989, the book has never been out of print and it has been selling amazingly since then. The question is why? Why does this book sell so many in numbers and why does it not die because most of the books published in the mixed pop age have died already; the music of those days have faded away...

One Indian Girl – book review

O

One Indian Girl is a 2016 novel and thankfully the last novel by Chetan Bhagat, at least for now! This is nothing sort of an Indian version of mini El James kind of sexual excursion taken by the protagonist Radhika Mehta who remembers nothing else about her feministic rights but just having sex and having worked for big companies and having a lot of money. Well, Chetan Bhagat might have talked to...

Sita: Warrior of Mithila by Amish Tripathi | Review

S

It hasn’t been so much since I finished this novel by Amish Tripathi, Sita: The Warrior of Mithila 3 days ago. For the starters, I truly liked this novel as it’s a novel. Indeed, it’s a novel – a work of fiction. Nevertheless, I truly wonder what a novel could be out of this if the characters in the novel were to be some common men and women like we are? Could we ever give...

The Quest of the Sparrows

T

There are no better books to be read these days which convey deeper meanings and meaningful ideas. Sadly, but unfortunately true, we have to look into the past and find some meaningful piles of pages which could be a good fiction altogether and one such was published back in 2011 – The Quest of the Sparrows. Though reviews are mixed for the book, what I found in the novel was it’s...
