Despite Stolen Dreams - review

Book - Despite Stolen Dreams
Author - Anita Krishan 
Publisher - FingerPrint Publishers
Pages - 303 
ISBN: 9788175994669

Contemporary fiction in India could seldom offer us something more than entertainment because authors have been indulging in the 'fair' practice of offering the 'fair' literary output to the youths of the country and they are very well away from the real fiction which could be called literary. A guy and a girl and many guys and many girls and the game of the fiction is played like this. Meaningful and purposeful literature are seldom found happening on this playground but sometimes the authors like Anita Krishan do make it happen - serious and visionary fiction with the qualities which qualify for a competition on the global front - leaving this usual contemporary fiction very far behind.

With You; Without You - book review

What else could be joyous than reading on a weekend? I love reading my books and sometimes try the new ones whenever I get a long weekend for my leisure and hobbies. This time, it was the number of Prabhat Ranjan’s debut book With You; Without You – the one that I have mentioned in a previous post. I began reading the book on this Friday and finished it this morning. And believe me, the book was very much close to a gripping novel which encircles your thoughts and motivates you to finish asap – and Prabhat’s debut With You; Without You was the same!

What am I reading in November 2017?

 Readers, you need to mark the day! And that day is every day! A day when you read nothing is just like a day which is barren and waste and I can feel what you would be feeling on such a day – totally waste and totally waste! A day without reading in the life of an active reader is just like a day without practice in the life of a singer who sings every day! So, you must have understood how much is the importance of reading in the life of us – the active readers! And today, I will be writing about the books I have selected for my November 2017 Reading list. Here you go:

Shilpa Raj - the author with a cause!

You might have read the success stories or the overnight fame stories of different authors who have written a number of works after the first one. Some might have managed to ride the wave of fame received for the first work and others might have faded in oblivion after the initial shock wave… today, I am writing about an author whose debut has sent positivism among the readers because this author is not from a flowery background and she did not write a fiction to get her name on the list of the women who write. Shilpa Raj has made her debut with her memoir, The Elephant Chaser’s Daughter and after the initial release in India and the worldwide release, she has been getting her reputation only wide and tall around the world and many book critics and readers have sent her ‘thumbs up’ for her successful debut and the theme that she has chosen for that. She has written about herself giving an opportunity to the readers to connect with her story and make it about themselves…

Bleeding Queens | Review

Bleeding Queens is the debut novel by an author, so promising in her content and vision, Palak Kundra. The author comes from Amritsar and you can clearly see the Punjabi tilt in her debut novel, the tone of the characters, the names and even their actions. Nevertheless, the agony that the central character in the novel goes through and her retaliation, are something which could easily be shared by the women across the nation… Palak Kundra has written her debut novel about the menace of rape and her character, Diljit, goes through it, the pain and the suffering and also the fight back posed by her is exemplary! The readers can easily relate to this novel and find themselves in concurring positions.
