Indicting Goliath by Lal Bhatia – Review

December 7, 2018 • By

Lal Bhatia’s debut work, work with a purpose – Indicting Goliath, is a non-fictional autobiography (not complete) by him. Published in the year 2018, the book has got great attention from the readers within as well as outside India. Indicting Goliath is about ‘uncovering’ the seamy truths that the USA doesn’t want to be uncovered. Lal Bhatia, the protagonist of the story, was imprisoned in the USA for the reasons of money laundering and doing wrongs with the funds of a company that he was supposed to handle. However, according to Mr Bhatia himself, he was trapped by a certain Mr Wig and then trialled and persecuted unfairly by the authorities and unjustly denied justice by the Department of Justice, USA. So, the work is about demanding justice and throwing hard facts on the face of the USA.

English Literature Forum is the new initiative by Alok Mishra, a well-known philanthropist in the field of literature. He has taken this step with a vision to provide a platform for free and open discussion, via the web, to the students, scholars, teachers and enthusiasts of English literature.

Hard Times by Charles Dickens – Review

September 5, 2018 • By

Charles Dickens has written many novels and most of them are very well-known. The prominent among his novels are mostly the works which discuss the plights of the poor people in enormously increasing England – industrially and intellectually. With no space or the minimum space left for the have-nots, this novelist took the charge and began writing with the perspective in mind. His novel Hard Times discusses two very important things – one is how the poor people saw rich England and how the rich people saw poor England. As a reader, you can apparently find two sections of characters in the novel. There is a visible contrast. Let’s discuss the same.READ MORE

Short Stories by Franz Kafka – Review

August 15, 2018 • By

Franz Kafka’s short stories are always amazing to read. There is no doubt about it that Kafka’s influence on English Literature (with the help of translations) can ever be reduced. Much is not known about his life and habits but the least we know, we can be sure that the gentleman was more a man of words than sentences (most powerful). Longer short stories or writings might be well but the shorter short stories of Franz Kafka were always more powerful and more impactful than anything else he wrote. This Sunday, I thought to read his short stories and pulled out the classic edition from my medium-height book shelve. And then, the excursion began.READ MORE
