Description:

To begin afresh, after her broken marriage, Saoli returns to India and starts living in prembajar at the house her grandfather had bought from Bitasta’s father. While cleaning the house, Saoli comes across an old diary, perhaps belonging to Bitasta’s mother, Panchali. The Diary has a very cryptic poem written in dactylic hexameter, the archaic meter of the ancient Greek epics. Aware of the fact that Sairandhri didn’t let her son, Parush, marry Bitasta, even though sairandhri and bitasta’s mother were best of friends, saoli gets in touch with the reckless parush, recently accused in a high-profile IP theft case in the US. As Parush tells Saoli about his heedless and shattered life, his unrequited love affair with Bitasta, his lifelong hatred for his mother and his topsy-turvy corporate career in the US, Saoli unearths the darkest secrets hidden in the cryptic poem all this long.

Why didn’t Sairandhri want Parush to marry Bitasta? Why was Bitasta the only person she wished to see on her death-bed? Why had she been nothing more than a beautiful but lifeless mural at home? The cryptic poem has the answers. Join Saoli and Parush in their journey to decode the past and discover their real identities, where love can never be chained by stereotypes. It’s time to set love free!

Unusually bold narrative … Almost lyrical in nature

– The Times of India

Review by Shahnila Hassan ,

The broken Amoretti is a novel consisted of two parts “with” or “without”. Personally I enjoyed the other part because it was based on practical life.

Well, this is a book about intense love. Writer described the love in poetic way. Love between the women, relations, work and much more.

Perhaps LGBTQ becomes the most common topic now a days which writer has mentioned.

Love the twisted ending. No doubt very mysterious and intriguing story with softly and neatly written that you enjoy reading..

Parush and Bitasta are the main characters. They love each other and wants to marry with each other. Bitasta’s mother was very supportive but parush’s mother was against them she didn’t want this marriage happen. Well a mysterious diary plays a great role between them. This diary belongs to Bitasta’s mother. In which she described the wind of love very well.

I love to read the every chapter of Parush’s life.

*Why his mother was against them?

*What was written in the diary?

*How parush dealt with every situation?

*How parush became so successful?

*Why parush and soali divorced?

So many interesting questions and all answers are in this book.

Indeed the readers will love the poetic touch in the story who has great poetic sense. But the book is written in very simple way.

Two muskrat brothers become displaced due to a storm and end up in a lady’s backyard. They make a big mess back there, and the lady decides it’s time for them to go. She calls a pest control company who comes and sets traps to catch them. He catches one of the muskrats and relocates him in a forest near a pond. He and his brother had never been apart before, and now he was all alone in an unfamiliar place. Some other animals approached him while he was drinking from the pond. They had never seen a muskrat before and were not as welcoming as he would have liked—until the muskrat proved himself worthy of living there by helping the animals defeat a dangerous foe. The other animals realized that he had some unique qualities and skills and did in fact belong at the pond, and they became friends. And someone special may have rejoined the muskrat to make for a happy ending.

Review by Shahnila Hassan;

Always and Never is a book basically about to empower your intuition. It will teach and guide you that how you can simplify the golden rules. By following this not only you can live a peaceful life moreover you can know the importance of yourself. It is very necessary to know the value of your conscience. There are almost 20 truths which demonstrates very well. Author compared and explain the rules which one can do ‘always‘ and ‘never’ . I appreciate the author for spreading the love and wisdom which one can get by her/his own experience. This book is a little gift for those who care for their love one. Other than this the book is very precise and practical.

Book blitz `The tracker´

Book blurb:
I’m a trained killer. An expert tracker.I’ve done despicable things. My soul is damaged. My body impaired. That’s what happens when you are a soldier for The Company. I was discharged a year ago. Now I am a dreg. Worthless. With a bounty on my head. I’ve become a creature of the night, hiding in an underground maze during the day. Because I’m not ready to die yet.She comes to me one night, needing my help to find her sister. The moment I see her, I want her. Her goodness calls to me, makes me yearn for the impossible. She brings life back to the deadness inside me. I’m no good for her. I will do nothing but corrupt her. But I’m a callous bastard. I can’t resist her.I try not to care for her, but somehow she slips under my skin. She makes me weak. And there is only one thing in this world I am afraid of. Weakness.I’ll never be good enough for her, so I have to finish this job and send her on her way.Before she destroys me.

TRACKER EXCERPT:

“Where are we? Why am I here? My head’s a little fuzzy.”

Gordon nodded. “It’s the drugs they gave you. You’ll get used to it eventually. Before long, you won’t even remember your own name. They’ll give you a new one, depending on your skills. That is, if you survive long enough to learn some skills.”
Liam’s heart pounded harder. That didn’t make sense. The last thing he remembered was…he searched hard for a memory of some kind, but only came up blank. He couldn’t remember anything except his name, and that had barely come to him. He clung to that memory, not wanting to forget his name.
Liam. My name’s Liam. Don’t forget it. Don’t forget.
My name is Liam. Liam.
I’m Liam.
Liam who?
No last name came forward. No middle name. Just Liam.
It would have to be good enough.
Liam.How old am I?
He glanced down at himself. Faded jeans. Black hoodie. Converse sneakers. Wiry build. Not as old as Gordon.
He stared blankly at the big, redheaded kid.
How old am I?
Twelve.
He glanced back down at himself.
Yeah. I’m twelve. I think.
Panic gripped him again. He couldn’t be sure. What was going on? Why couldn’t he remember anything?
Gordon’s words finally sank home: It’s the drugs they gave you.
Liam’s heart rate kicked up even more, galloping in place like a tethered thoroughbred. Drugs? Who were they? What had they done to him? He shouldn’t be here. He should be home with…who? His family? Did he even have a family?
His head hurt, a fierce pounding that made him want to scream in agony. He clutched his head in his hands and groaned softly. “Why am I here? Why? I don’t understand.”
Gordon shrugged. “Why are any of us here? Because we’re expendable. I just hope you last longer than my last roommate did.”
Liam snapped his head up, the headache screeching to a sudden halt. “What happened to your last roommate?”
Gordon eyed him with a seriousness that made Liam flinch. “He didn’t survive the first round of tests.”
Tests? What tests? What was this guy talking about?
“This is freaking me out.” Liam jumped up from the bed. He paced across the cell to the bars. Staring out into the corridor, he shouted, “Help! Let me out of here! There’s been a mistake!”
A big hand gripped his shoulder. “Won’t do you any good, Liam. You can scream and cry until you’re hoarse. They won’t free you. You’re not a human being anymore. You’re a test subject. A lab rat.”
Liam spun his head around, his gaze locking on Gordon’s. “What do you mean? Who are they?”
Gordon sighed. “They are The Company. They own us now. From this point forward, you just need to concentrate on staying alive, because you can’t run, and you can’t hide. You’ll never escape.”
He gave Liam a sympathetic pat on the back and turned away.
“Welcome to hell, roomie.”

Book review : The last Nomad

Author : Heramb Sukhathankar

Rating : 5 / 5

Genre : suspense, fiction

Review by Shahnila Hassan 

A book that indulges everyone’s interest”

“Another successful book by Heramb”

Writer described very beautifully about each phases of lifestyle. From a slum boy to a modern educated man. A story from a Rahul to Ryan. 
In each stage Ryan’s life became more complicated. Something is there to know. Some part of his life is hideously and he was curious to know about this. Perhaps Nature was playing hide and seek with Ryan.

Although his continues struggle helps him to accomplished his mission and he sorted the secret that lies behind it. 

To know more about the journey of Rahul to Ryan. You must read the book.

Indeed the best suspense fictional story.

I love the story from beginning. No one can imagine where the story takes them. But the bonding of evolution is engrossing. 

The last Nomad” title is very suitable. Before start reading I was confused about the title but now I must say writer described the title in very appropriate way. 


Book description : 

Every moment of Rahul Gite’s childhood has been etched with strange stories: untold stories from the dark and dreary lanes of thriving Shantinagar slum in Bombay. Written by nameless faces out of the thrust for survival, these are stories of love, hate, greed and belief. But everyone despises them; they bring us face to face with life—off guard and will-less. Then there is Ryan Davis, enjoying the ancient myths and legends from his parents, sitting in the drawing room of a well furnished apartment in Sagamihara, Japan—the land of hope. Life in Sagamihara has been nothing short of a fairy tale: streets bathing in the beautiful pink cherry blossoms, autumn leaves floating at the mystical Lake Sagami and gigantic kites magnificently soaring in the skies during the Sagami Giant Kites Festival. Every new day is a story soaked in fantasy, leaving Ryan longing for more. One day by happenstance, Rahul and Ryan meet each other at the crossroads of life. Will they have to let go the stories they have cherished?
