Book Review-The Brahmin by Ravi Shankar Etteth

brahmin

REVIEW

What an impact full story just wow! Im so much drenched in it that still like im in past! Heads off bcz history any mystery with thriller were never my cup of tea. I have read tons of romance books and this time getting historical thriller was the change! A good change!!

Characters – The king Ashoka, The Queen Asandhimitra, SPY Hao, Mur, Radhagupta, the greek fighter and tge monks! Every character is different and gives you goosebumps like ahh what a portary! Even history says women were never weak, queen has played a strong roll in the story.
Plotline super. Story starts with Muder mystery in the harem of Patliputra. Story line was set in the mauryan era i.e ashoka times 267 BC scenario. Amazing and intriguing masterpiece. What was more notable in it was deep description of food, about minute palace even including furniture and dark thicket. Dialogue are surrealistic. Language and narration is so smooth that i was boating in Magadha – Kalinga times!

Must read its a rear combination of history+ thrill that too so deep!

Book review of Mango People In Banana Republic Paperback – by Vishak Shakti (Author)

ABOUT THE BOOK (BLURB)

Ravi Bhalerao is a top of the rung business strategy consultant struggling with two disquiets in life – a festering career disillusionment and a festering wound in his posterior. Stung by an unfair performance appraisal, he pulls off an outrageous stunt at his workplace, drops off the urban map and reaches his ancestral land, a village in drought-prone Vidarbha. There he encounters India in its elemental form. Convinced that his destiny is somehow entwined with that of his country, he sets off on a truth-seeking mission. On that mission, he finds love, revolution and most importantly, a redemption for the disquiet in his rear.

Anand is a former physicist on a spiritual quest through esoteric India. He realizes that the path to realization is beset on all sides by gurus, their cults and their boundless quirks. As he hops from one ashram to the other, he grows convinced that liberation does not come with a user manual in a neat little box.

Wrapped in light-hearted, almost tongue-in-cheek prose, Mango People In Banana Republic is a tale of an Indian’s search for personal identity, against the backdrop of a country divided along fault lines of countless social identities. Teeming with a cast of characters and ideas that encapsulate modern India, the tale ascends from the gross to the sublime, much like the Kundalini powers some aspire to acquire. With a steady pace, and gentle mocking humour, this book is an absorbing read and a laugh.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Vishak Shakti is a writer by compulsion. He writes to vent, to purge, to indulge, and sometimes just for the heck of it. He has written for publications such as MSN India, The Hindu, and Clean Bowled. He thinks that a good book has three essential ingredients – entertainment, artistry and relevance, in that order.

Review

When it comes to corporate life you have to be strong enough to take all the challenges. Story of Mango people in Banana Republic stats all the odd that happenes in the country and talks about all the wrong deeds of politics in the country.
Story has given the glimpse of seven chackras also in every next chapters! These are in relation with human lives mainly chakras are related to Anand and Ravi two important fictional characters.

Story is a medly of love, affection, betryal, disappointment and spiritual life. Apart from Two male leads there are few more characters like madhu, Rama and KR played a strong role.

Narration is so adhere and solid the it magnetized readers to stick by it. Storyline is high intriguing and keeps an enthusiastic read hooked up. So can yawn while indulging with chakras experience its an odd in whole story.

To me title and cover impacted most to choice this book. Blurb is sharp. It definitely sails with the readers expections. Has high potential to be converted into a documentary or movie.

A perfect ragbag of lampoon, banter, laughter, spiritual and it has come up with real and emerging social ethical issues.

A light entertaining read! Pick this up if you really want something different.

Book Review: Reminiscences Of A Seeker: Dark Face Of The White World (True Story) by KAPIL KUMAR BHASKAR

Blurb

The paranormal thriller is a true account of Kapil and provides an interesting fascination for those who are interested in the supernatural. The book is nothing less than a fantasy

The book, which is a mystical thriller which is based on the author’s true account, gives a glimpse on how the occult world operates The true spiritual story explains the existence of the dark side of the spiritual white world paranormal world which is as much real and any ordinary person can get caught in the illusion of the world unless one is careful.

The existence of the paranormal and the supernatural world is as much real and any ordinary person can get caught in that world unless one is careful. We belong to such a period of time wherein innocent seekers are lured into the trap of so-called “Masters” who fool them easily by playing onto their deepest fears and weakness.

The book hopes to save people from making that false step and even if one does commit that mistake, the book offers hope that it is not the end of the world;one can always get to the Light,

A thrilling true account of an ordinary man plunged into extraordinary circumstances of the Dark World.

Review

Reminiscences of a seeker reading this i was puzzled what can be a story!
I started reading and found it a true experience of an author i was thrilled. Tantric, aghories and babas have also scared meh but reading this masterpiece was super exciting.
All the events are narrated in a well manner that makes reader glued page by page.

Book is all about the true and surreal event of mr. Bhaskar and how he has experienced the phase which is very rare and is a hidden side of society.
Reading this book was something different, while reading i was getting goosebumps as i hv never phased such supernatural power near me.

Language and narration was in flow but at the same time repetition were making it monotonous. Plot is mesmerizing you will definitely enjoy wheather you believe or not at the end of this book but once you will open it you will keep the book after finishing it.

Title ahh completing whole i feel title justified! Cover simple yet eye catching…

Go for this! Recommend to all! Make your weekend super exciting and thrilled (thrilled bcz when you will read the events of sadhus and aghories you will we thrilled for sure).

4/5 stars!

Book Review: SOLITUDE and other OBSESSIONS

PicsArt_03-22-08.24.05.jpg

Review

SOLITUDE and other OBSESSIONS is a thoughts and imagination treasury of Uma, Binod, Trupti, Shruti and Saurin. All the five poets have done an amazing work, they have compiled 73 poems in totals that reflect the emotions and feelings.

A human mind is always preoccupied with various and numerous thoughts. From man to woman, boy to girl, minor to stripling every humankind is indulged with obsession, some people refrain but some they cant and become obsessed.

Poems in the garner have a high and rich vocabulary, themes of the poem are multifarious. Poetry is something that has a power to control the mind, I was enjoying reading these poems on various topics, the book is full of awestruck and awesome pieces of poems of poets. Some of my personal favorite from this pile is Binod Panda’s collection every poem has a story behind even years are mentioned, Life: With A smile amazing, Two to Tango, Who Am I, Send Me, Flute, The Light Princess, and In A Lap Of Death are few titles touched my soul.

Title and cover both didn’t make a place in my heart, but yes poems have left the print in my heart!

Highly recommended to all the poetry lovers.

We are a species fueled by obsessions. Every human achievement, and every infamy, is the result of an obsession that tormented, possessed and consumed. This is a selection of poetry about solitude and other obsessions that have distracted, driven, destroyed and / or defined us. Spanning genres, styles, emotions, time & place, these works by a collective of 5 poets are a glimpse into the obsessions that have become us.

All about the five Authors

Uma Sudhindra grew up in an army environment. After a decade-and-half of corporate life, she became an entrepreneur and has remained one. She loves books, music, travel & the Armed Forces. Her entrepreneurial venture Go Magic Trails reflects her passion for travel and experiencing the new & unique.

She’s co-founded I’m Every Woman, an NGO for women empowerment. Their flagship initiative, DURGA India, has worked tirelessly with communities, corporates & government to create safer spaces for women & children.

Binod Kumar Panda is the classic mix of left-brain, right-brain. Gregarious and charming, he’s an engineer and MBA with a hugely successful corporate, entrepreneurial and consulting career.

His school and college years though were spent in the company of solitude and like-minded friends that resulted in thought provoking poetry.

Trupti Kalamdani is a mechanical engineer by profession who investigates stresses developed on an aircraft body at work; while at home, releases her stress by penning down a few lines.

Her tryst with poetry started during her school days, when she expressed her undying love for cricket in the form of a poem. Over the years, her limericks have grown into full bodied verses. A closet poet for years, she is finally out and exploring different platforms to share her work.

Her poems have been published in literary journals like efiction India, Taj Mahal Review and Coffee Shop Poems. She is also a regular performer at “”Let Poetry Be”” events at Atta Galatta.

Dr. Shruti Arabatti comes with a mature head over drooping arms and a mind ticking faster than an exploding bomb. Like her namesake, she is an orchestrated person living in a discordant cadence. She manages to hit all the right notes amidst all the gobbledygook yelping by her adorable preschooler.

Saurin Desai’s first love led to a roaring affair that’s ongoing now since nearly 30 years. At the innocent age of 8 he met a comic book that whacked him on the head (pun intended) and he fell heels-over-head, literally (pun not intended).

But being commitment-phobic, he had a couple of dalliances: with engineering, jobs & businesses, before succumbing to the seduction of the writer’s life and giving up everything to become lazier than he ever was.

Review

 

When you ask anyone do you like babies, the answer is always yes! but there is a vast difference between liking and nurturing, it takes a courage to nurture a child. Parenting is not only about a mother to care a child, but it is a responsibility of both mother and father as PARENTS= MOTHER+FATHER. Father is equally important for a child, ONE MINUTE SUPER DAD is a book which has all the super tips for today’s father how to nurture a baby. A book is written in a order with pictures which make it a more interesting read.

Language is vivid with  Coherent content.  Book has one- minute magic 99 tips, I liked the blast- off with children part along with the sweet stories of father and child(son and daughter). author has included all the jiffy moments to deal with the child, and how to be a super dad. Toddler to Teenager every stage has own changes and in this fast-paced life parents interaction is less, this book is a gem for those who are Fathers or are going to enjoy a Fatherhood.

A title is clear and crystal, a cover is decent and blurb is informative. This book is a perfect gift for the future parents and also for the present parents.

Review

The Author has done an awe-inspiring job in its prequel, “HARAPPA” and I was enthusiastically waiting for its sequel and here it is. My tick- tock waiting watch is stopped and finally I am giving my verdict on Pralay – the great deluge.

I enjoyed Pralay-The great Deluge which is the second part of Harappa – the curse of the Blood River.Like the volume one, this book holds the equivalent charisma and page turner for all. Several characters role play shows instantaneously in this book, like a historical drama based move rolling.

Coming to the story, in the last book we had seen that Vivasan pujari was sentenced to mrit karavas like a hell type place and on the next day numerous torture done by King Chandrashekhar army. He landed to the west of Harappa, at the place of Sura, the mighty demon king, with the extreme mental country of in search of revenge of the fatality of his beloved soul mate Sanjana and his single son. The mighty king agrees to help him, but in exchange for something, which stunned the great devta for an instant. On the other end in Banaras, Vidyut flabbergasted and immobilized to see the sudden alteration of Bala, his brotherhood friend. On which earth Bala tried to kill Vidyut and who is the mastermind behind it. Each passing moment Vidyut condition is getting life-threatening. Does he recover from it? In the meantime, meanwhile, the Masaan Raja, the deity of the dead, Trijaat Kapaalik entered the matth with his 666 maniac followers and his guts left everyone stunned in the matth. What was the purpose to visit in such horrible phases to the Matth? Another fragment of the story, Manu succeeded to get away with the lifeless body of his adored mother with the support of Pundit Somdutt and swift with his horse to the East of Harappa in search of the Black Temple as directed. On the way, he met Matshya, a mystery man.Manu seeks help from this mystical man Masaya for taking revenge for the death of his parents. Did he help Manu on his mission? All mystery will solve, once you go through the book. The fast pace of the book holds you till the end & it’s a single sit read for me. Writing a historical fiction is a tough job and need too much research to make it the best. The Author has succeeded in that case. Language and narration are breath-taking from its first page of the book.
Mythology was never my cup of tea, but recently I have read few amazing mythology related novels including this and I just loved it now. I was gripped and enthralled by the transformation of the pujari into evil. Saptrishi and Vidyut played and justified their role.
The cover is not unique still simple and good it could have been better.
The title is catchy, this book I never thought will be released soon I must pat on the back of author for his creativity and imaginations!

4/5 to this book!
