Book Review – The Scion of Ikshvaku

Let’s write a book. Choose an epic mythological tale; one that is revered by every Indian, since generations. Prise out the main figures, perhaps, ones religiously worshipped. Stick to the original settings, how else will readers relate? Throw in some... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Inheritance of Loss

#MyThoughts: In my opinion, some books aren't mere books. They are secret holders, stubborn secret holders that hate to divulge anything until unless forced to. 'The Inheritance of Loss' gave me a similar feeling. It was the year 2014. I... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Immortals of Meluha

‘The Immortals of Meluha’ is based on Lord Shiva’s life, so I'd heard. Being a devotee of the lord, I dropped everything to read it myself. In the very first chapter itself I realized that the book is not based on... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Imperfectionists

#MyThoughts: Sometimes, it's good too take a chance with books and authors unheard of. As a reader, I'm quite eccentric. If I'm trying an author for the first time, I check out their quotes. Well, and if the quotes stick with... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Train to Pakistan

#MyThoughts: I detest the sight of blood. This book was a flood of blood; a sight that continues to haunt me. “Morality is a matter of money. Poor people cannot afford to have morals. So they have religion.” This quote was... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

Okay, Point no. 1: Do not run behind books based on the hype around you. That's the first lesson I learnt. For some goddamn reason, everywhere around me I just saw Fifty Shades. In trains, buses, at work, with friends, around... Continue Reading →
