While surfing through a book store few days back, I saw the book The motorcycle diaries by Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara. Immediately decided to read it. I wanted to know more about Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara then knowing him just as a revolutionary figure and as a Graffiti on t-shirts of people who sometimes don’t even know who he is. This novel is a travel journal of Ernesto. Narrative from his travel diary. Don’t expe...

Having a financial Literacy is one of the prime thing to have in current times. I never had the proper concept of assets and liability in a way to understand how they were the source of my financial stability. Until I read this Book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Although I would say that I should have read this book , that way I wouldn’t have made the mistakes which I did while making financial decisions. This book won’t exactly give y...

When I first read Jurassic park, it blew my mind. Since then I have been a fan of the author Michael Crichton. I liked how he takes a sci-fi premise and makes it about something more profound and human. I liked how Jurassic park dealt with themes like man playing God, power, nature and life finding a way.

This is the first time I have read a book by a Japanese writer after which of course I got more interested in Japanese writers and read Kafta on...

Specially when the book is written by someone well renowned like Jim Collins. His first book Built to last which was about myths, insights and practical guidance to build a visionary companies which stand against the testimony of time, was a best seller.It was very well researched and had grea...

So Recently I came across this second book by Twinkle Khanna. I Dedicatedly follow her columns in Times of India and have become a fan of her Wit and Humor. Her first novel Mrs. Funnybones was an exceptional piece of writing, so decision of buying her second novel didn’t even took a second. It’s really intriguing how she finds humor in daily chores and such simple things so beautifully but then again that’s what writing is al...

3 Reasons why Indian popular literature is stagnant
Articles / October 10, 2017

Indian popular literature is strange. It has a rich tradition of writers and poets that were universally acclaimed and the country’s tryst with words for entertainment,  reform and revolution have been spectacular in the past. This is also the country whose most popular current entries in fiction are various tiring variations of cliched romances. These are filled with trite dialogue and one dimensional over the top characters. ...
