A born psychic who asked the gods to make her life as difficult as they could so she could experience what others go through and what the world was.
I really haven’t expected that much from this book, but I’m speechless now. Narration of this book is so illuminating and progressive where a girl explaining about her thought process and the experiences from the previous births and trying to find the purpose of her life. A very extraordinary story where a child is aware about her previous life. ( more than 600 previous lives. ) This protagonist is so progressive, thoughtful and unique in many ways.
. . “Insanity is thinking the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” .
A very classical story and author used new words to give this narration a poetic fervour. A book good.
Well known for his unabashed interest in the fairer sex, Khushwant Singh revelled in the notoriety his interest evoked, almost as much as he did in the response he received from women. Indeed, this enduring obsession provided fodder for some of Singh’s best-known work, both as a journalist and as a peerless raconteur.
On Women, a wide-ranging selection of Singh’s writings on the subject, includes Singh’s recounting of an embarrassingly drunken meeting with Begum Para, an actress of yesteryears; a sharp profile of Shraddha Mata, a tantric sadhvi who was alleged to have borne Jawaharlal Nehru’s illegitimate child; and a touching sketch of Singh’s grandmother in the twilight of her life. Also featured in this volume are unforgettable women characters from Khushwant Singh’s most popular works of fiction: Georgine, a clueless American teenager who is seduced by a middle-aged tour guide in Delhi; and Nooran, a young girl in pre-Partition Punjab, who discovers the sweet pleasure of first love only to be overtaken by cataclysmic events which leave her adrift.
Insightful, poignant, and occasionally wicked, the essays and extracts in On Women are testament to why Khushwant Singh remains one of the most popular writers of our times.
Basically this is a collection of anecdotes extracted from his different books and writing. Khushwant Singh is famous for his bold, lecherous waiting, but I think he was much more than that. Khushwant Singh’s writing is tongue in cheek, and many people would fail to digest easily. But this is completely a piece of courageous writing, and this book is collected from the wide range of his writings about women and sex. This book includes some very interesting and meaning stories and some are very meaningless and childish sexual encounters. His way of presentation is really brilliant, and his writings on women and sex are testament to why he remains a legend in Indian writing. This collection includes Singh’s recounting of an embarrassingly drunken meeting with Begum Para, an actress of yesteryears; a sharp profile of Shraddha Mata, a tantric sadhvi who was alleged to have borne Jawaharlal Nehru’s illegitimate child; and a touching sketch of Singh’s grandmother in the twilight of her life. .

This is a chain of moments portrayed in the form of poetry accompanied by pictures. Poems are dense, deep and not so easy to connect. Picture representation is captivating.
Poetry too is a form of Archaeology
All the human emotions are portrayed in a very rhythmic and poetic manner. Some poems are very rhythmic and some are just below average. A short, crisp piece of writing waving beautifully. You can finish it in a one go, but to grasp the deep meaning of lines you have to contemplate again and again.

Shameless by Taslima Nasreen is the much-awaited sequel to her controversial book ‘Lajja’. The book hit the shelves on the 14th of April 2020. It has been translated by Arunava Sinha and published by Harpercollins.
‘My name is Suranjan. You don’t recognize me? You wrote a novel about me. It was called Lajja.’ One day in Calcutta, Taslima suddenly finds herself face to face with Suranjan, the principal character from her controversial novel Lajja. Persecuted in their native Bangladesh, Suranjan and his family have, like Taslima, moved to the city across the border. But is life for a Hindu family from an Islamic nation any better in a country where a majority of the population happens to be Hindu?
Leading poor, unmoored lives, exploited and frustrated at every step of the way, and always carrying with them the memories of a scarred communal history, Suranjan and so many others like him seem to lead incomplete lives in their so-called ‘safe haven’. Shameless, the explosive sequel to Lajja, is an uncompromising, heart-breaking look at ordinary people’s lives in our troubled times.
About the author
Taslima Nasreen is a secular humanist, a human rights activist, and a prolific and bestselling author, who has faced multiple fatwas calling for her death. She was forced to leave Bangladesh by the government in the mid-1990s and has lived in exile since then. She now lives in New Delhi
This is a word which denotes a lot of characters of a female in different phases of life. She can be a daughter, mother, sister, wife or a working women. She plays all the roles in same compassion, confidence, strength and courage. Every women is a born artists unfortunately we always fails to respect her in that way in which we should do. She’s that writer who write her story herself. We always hear some slogans and political statements to empower the women which i suppose not a matter of chanting out only rather we should personally behave responsible in that direction.
This book is just not a book of quotes rather this is a confluence of thoughts about women and her roles and responsibilities alomg with the problem she face in daily life and how she handle everything beautifully. Very thoughtful and artistic compilation by Reecha and this is the second book I have read by the author, i loved it
There’s Gun Powder In The Air
A smoky comic throughback to the 70’s Naxel uprising in Bengal. Story is set in jail where inmates are planning a jail escape.
Manoranjan Byapari’s book There’s Gunpowder In The Air won multiple prizes for non-fiction this year. He’s the author who taught himself to read and write in 20’s while he was in prison. He never been able to go school, lived simply in marginalised section of the society. He’s like hand to mouth person and a soul of the soil. Author himself worked as a rickshaw puller, cookand sweeper. He started from alphabet learning to reading and eventually writing.
Byapari begin to read literature and the first book read by Byapari was Manoj Basu’s novel Nishikutumbo ( Relatives by Night ) and so on.
Byapari fled home in early age because of misery, he consider himself a Nexal so he was arrested and put in jail.
Story join the anecdotes of prisoners and guards, there’s a horror elements also in the story.Bandiswala, the ghost of a dead prisoner, provides comic relief. The apparition, the idea of a vengeful unseen being, stalks throughout and is more powerful than any of the guards, even the double murder criminal is scared of it. It’s a narration of chain of events and daily life of prisoners in jail premise and being a law student now am very excited to go on the spot to research more about the jail and whole jail administration. It’s also a text atrocity in relation of caste and creed discrimination. Narration is very of ground level which is very familiar to the every individual. It’s juat a brilliant literature work saying evey aspects with so much impact which can directly hit the core brain. Language and narration is flourished. Special thanks for beautiful translation to Mr Arunava Sinha.

A ticklish affair is a collection of ten short stories from different themes, most of them are related to different relationships we experience in our ordinary life. Stories arw quite interesting but with unnecessarily twisted plot like author is convincing readers to enjoy the story with some unconvincing masala stuff. Instead of that thing some of the stories are really very interesting and relevant with a deep message. Some taught life lessons, love and many more. Blackmail, Rickshaw Faridabadi both the stories are very meaningful where you’ll find a different angles of power of loyalty and love respectively. Another pleasent surprise is that the fiction stories in this book is with the essence of real life incidents.
Narration is very strong but at the point of storyline, it’s quite not so impressive or strong. Short stories needs more consciousness to entertain the reader and i found myself disappointed at that point of plot fabrication by the author. Almost all the stories are full of coincidences.
I would emphasize that the author narrated all the stories very beautifully. Language is also one of the most important part of the book, good vocab is used. Stories of this book is not so extraordinary but light and worth to read. You can definitely pick this if you like to short stories.
