The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh – review

March 15, 2018 • By

The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh is a book which, by most of the critics in India and abroad, is considered one of those novels who could successfully classify themselves to be called an ecological novel and it’s true as well… reading his novel, in case of The Hungry Tide, gradually removes the shroud from the concerns which we often ignore but only realise when it’s too late already. The human beings deported from their homes; the animals beguiled from their native land and the bystanders musing over the loss… this is all in his book and it makes the novel even complex – far, far away from the ones which are being read and written in the present day in our country.READ MORE

The Complete Poems of John Keats: Wordsworth Editions

November 12, 2017 • By

Poetry collections are often a respite for the persons who are marred by the whimsical world which is offended by just nothing… those who love literature and also those who have nothing to do with it, a good poem will always be good – irrespective of gender, caste, creed and race… poetry does not know any boundaries and nor do the lovers of poetry. Today, I will be reviewing The Complete Poems of John Keats (Wordsworth Editions). This is a collection which was also in my University syllabus and I had the luxurious chance to read and reread it many times and sometimes just the random readings. Today, I will share my opinions and experiences with this poetry collection of John Keats.READ MORE

Autobiography of a Yogi

Autobiography of a Yogi review

The popular actress Mariel Hemingway wrote in her book Finding My Balance that she was “mesmerized by the Autobiography of a Yogi and loved the whole great Hindu tradition of spiritual seeking …” The Beatles are said to be inspired by this great book by Paramahansa Yogananda and countless are the names and big names and people. Whom did not this book inspire and put on the ‘right track’ of spiritual rebirth of a kind? Paramahansa Yogananda was surely a gem for India and the great Indian Hindu culture and a way of living with traditions such high that anyone in the world’s diverse corners bows his head unto. His great work Autobiography of a Yogi brought this great tradition to the light and then the world knew not only a Yogi but also the entire clan of Yogis and a tradition of Yogis.READ MORE

Animal Farm by George Orwell

August 11, 2017 • By

Who does not know about this book? You will seldom find a person who calls himself a reader of fiction and does not know about this great title in the history of English Literature ever! Animal Farm by George Orwell is a kind of book which happens only once in a century and in 20th, it had already happened. The animated satire which by all the means an alluring children’s book, mocks the situation of human – we are destined to make mistake and make the same mistake again and again… Have you read this book? If not, this is your day! I am going to review this book and ensure you buy a copy, which will not cost you more than 70-80 rupees (Indian or course).READ MORE
