514k5yn8pul

The book Return to earth is part 2 version of the galaxy .
The author Aithal has penned each and everything that could happen in near future ,if we not heed to nature call or what it wants to tell by creating nature calamities like earthquakes …. in a conversational way .

The nature shows it’s wrath in its own style so stop being greedy ,selfish and destructive is what Aithal wants to convey through his book .

The description of mountains , dried rivers , communal wars which political parties play and powerful people greed will tear your heart into pieces .

It is a gut wrenching story written by wise person like Aithal .

The wise Aithal has given a geographic vision of “how life would be without goodness”.

Finally the emotions and reactions of the characters in this book are worth reading and it is royal pleasure to see expressions of shock ,guilty , happiness , hope and wary on their tired faces .

Om Bhadram Karnebhih Srunuyama Devah!
Bhadram Pasyemakshabhiryajatrah!
Sthirairangaistushtuvamsastanobhih!
Vyasema Devahitam Yadayuh!
Svasti Na Indro Vriddhasravah!
Svasti Nah Pusha Vishwavedah !
Svasti Nastarkshyo Arishtanemih!
Svasti No Brihaspatir Dadhatu!
Om Shantih, Shantih, Shantih!

O Gods! Let us hear auspicious words through our ears.
Let us see auspicious things through our eyes in the sacrifices.
Let us enjoy a life that is beneficial to Gods.
Let us praise the Gods with bodies having strong limbs.
Let Indra of ancient fame be propitious to us.
May the all-knowing Pusha be auspicious to us.
Let Garuda, who destroys evils, be favorably disposed towards us.
Let Brhaspati grant us welfare.
This Shanti (Peace) invocation appears in the Mundaka, Mandukya and Prasna Upanishads. This Peace Chant ends with the prayer for protection from the Tapatrayas (Threefold miseries) Adhyatmika (Body, Mind), Adhi Bhautika (Animals, other living Beings) and Adhi Daivika ( Natural calamities like Earthquake, Flood,Tsunami, etc.)
I think the author want us to understand this mantra . And hence he has release such a novel book .

Go grab this book and save our future from nature’s wrath .
This is my honest review .

 
 
 

Book Review of Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh

 

 

KNITTED TALES:

A Collection of Emotions

by

 

 

 

Blurb
 
What forces an innocent girl to become a sex symbol? Her desires? Or cruel fate? 
 
Is a lifetime enough—for avenging a betrayal? How do you hide secrets that never stopped haunting you? 
 
Can vengeance and secrets of your past devastate your present? How can long-buried crimes of yours suddenly raise their head? Can sinning be saving?
 
Is your spouse your soulmate? What if they never understood your feelings? Can you still live with them?
 
Lastly, does life give only two options? Live or die? What if there is a third?
 
 
In her debut anthology, Rubina Ramesh tries to find answers to these questions that are often from the heart and yet makes the mind ponder over the solution. Or is it the other way round? Either way, Knitted Tales is a bouquet of emotions that is bound to touch both your head and your heart.
 

                             Book Review

Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh  can be described by using  all the possible adjectives  available  in the english dictionary .Madame Rubina has penned  her first novel in an effective way by pointing the flaws  in our society and  in individual′s preception towards the perfect beings called F-E-M-A-L-E without having feminist kind of approach .The stories in Knitted Tales are sweet and sour .

My favorite stories are 

1.Cliff Notes : As it speaks about the authors inner frustrations to prove herself which reflects my life and  my wish to achieve something that my heart screams for ..

2.Chiclets :It gives taste of lives  American    Desi′s  who have been  living there  for years  , but still we Indians have the so-called  craziness towards THE STATES .

3.The Little GodMother : It gives an us glimpse of what is good parenting is all about .

 

All in all ,I  can say  Knitted Tales by  Rubina Ramesh is a superbly recommended book to read.

Book Review of His Drunken Wife by Sundari Venkatraman

HIS DRUNKEN WIFE
(Marriages Made in India Book #2)
by
Sundari Venkatraman
 
 
 
Blurb
 
The badass Shikha is startled when the nerdy Abhimanyu proposes marriage. She loves… herself, and Abhimanyu doesn’t figure on her list anywhere. For Abhimanyu, however, it was love at first sight when Shikha walked into RS Software, where the two of them work. 
 
When Abhimanyu shows her that he just might be rich enough for her, a pleasantly surprised Shikha accepts his marriage proposal and moves into his swanky apartment. 
 
But it looks like the love is all from only Abhi’s side as Shikha continues to drink herself crazy. Yeah, even at their wedding party. 
 
And then Abhi sets out on a honeymoon to Thailand with His Drunken Wife… 
 
*MARRIAGES MADE IN INDIA is a five-novella series that revolves around the characters you have met in The Runaway Bridegroom.

                                       Book Review 

His Drunken Wife by Sundari Venkatraman is a good read book .This story is based out of the characters from the book called   ‘The Runaway Bridegroom’.By now you all must be aware of sundari′s  writings . The plot  of this story is like all other romantic stories .

The lead characters are always have conflicting emotions contrary to their true nature Here Sundari has created a female beast and a somber male human being who tries to tame her .

Shikha and Abhi   are gracefully penned by her  .All I   can  say about this book “Its one time good read ”.

The pace of the book is normal .

Overall the book is recommended read .

I love  Abhi cooking for his wife.
The cover of book could have been beautified with brighter colors ..and hence 3 coloured lens for this book .
