My views on this Book:

Every new Book brings a new fictional journey which Author has created with his imagination. Whenever I pick a book, there is always a kind of excitement which always pushes me to turn through its pages. When I got the review copy of ‘The Ribbon Trap” delivered at home, I was stuck up with my pre-exam revisions. I’m very passionate about reading books apart from my textbooksJ, so I managed to give my 5hours to complete this book.

The Ribbon Trap by Shine Syamaladevi is proved to be a story which will glue your eyes to its pages. In the first line of Back-cover Synopsis the line “How can one Reclaim Life?” this is what that makes me to read it with an exciting mood. The prologue of this book ignites my curiosity about its story, as these 3 pages were full of thrill. When I went through its first few chapters few things became clear to me.  I didn’t felt myself connected with its characters. Sometimes the story looks grip-less as the author has defined few scenes too longer which gave me a boring sensation.

The plot and storyline is good but not good enough as it supposed in beginning. In the first half of this book, there are only a few chapters which keep my interest to it. The second-half of the story is far better than the first one. Every chapter brings a new reason to carry on reading it. Ending was good, but not the satisfying one. I am happy that I read something different and unique after completing it.  Author is a great story teller in no doubt, but the story that he has created in “The Ribbon Trap” is less than my expectations.

In the matters of looks and quality, this book proved itself. The cover quality and texture is beautiful. The cover looks catchy which will definitely attract readers. This leaves a very good impression about it. I am glad that I got the chance to review this book. I would like to thank the Author for trusting in me and giving a review copy of this book in exchange of a honest review.

A Mystical Majesty The Woman by Ruchika Rastogi

Book Reviews

Book: A Mystical Majesty

Author: Ruchika Rastogi

Publisher:Educreation Publishing

Genre: Fiction

About the Book:

The book is about a journey of a girl. How she undergoes transformation at each stage of her life? How she tackles her problems and comes out to be a winner? Why being a girl is a blessing in disguise? Are some of the many issues that are discussed in this book.

My views on this Book:

Inspiration is as fuel to achieve your goal.  The book Mystical Majesty is based on generalized version of a girl’s life. The problem she faces, her struggles, and her courage which she used to compete with her problems. As the book’s title is ‘Mystical Majesty’ the story woven inside the books is much more than it. It is just as a web; woven with words which will catch your attention so well that you can’t close to before completing it.

The main motive behind this book, from my view is to inspire to fight with your problems till will conquer them. The inspiration behind it is Honorable Ms. Kiran Bedi.  The plot is very nicely written with an appreciating storyline. Every page brings a new reason to keep your vision hooked to it. When it comes to writing style of the authoress, it is simple and effective but sometimes Authoress fails in creating interest in few chapters. The best part of this book is Ms. Kiran Bedi’s speech, that scene has the power to change my views about this book. Overall, this book has proved to be an inspirational read.

The Authoress has presented a very good story with her pen. I would like to suggest this book to all those who what to read something inspirational. I’ll be waiting for future works by authoresses pen.

About The Book:

When Baby Kiriti arrived in this world, he was like a lost butterfly in a sea of white. A baby who is born and thrust into the huge sea of humanity called India, rides and steers his destiny ship, as he constantly grapples with the Clown inside him, who meanwhile brings out his own set of funny oars in these troubled waters.

The Clown’s journey continues on from a Karma-Guru to a trader of special water from Europe (thanks to his Made-in-China friend!), and from a music director (the Bad-Boy theme!) to the founder of a school, and a dirty sock to a sex-crazed, horny bunch of young fellas. The colors of the Clown’s comedy are different but he always plays to the circus of life. As Kiriti encounters a wide array of characters from the length and breadth of India, a land as rich as its flavours, the carefree years full of joy and young hopes come to an end, with the sweet smell of Ganja still lingering under the starry nights. The philosophy of Meaning is preached, after a session of holy smokes, on the sides of a dusty highway which sees blood and grime daily.

And finally with the Mystical Game which casts a shadow on Kiriti’s life having been won, everything is laid to rest under a blanket of white, only to be stumbled upon by a Sherpa on the peaks of the mighty Himalayas that wakes up something inside of his adorable son!

Is it a Thief, his Dream or the Clown?

And there is a 2000 year old Surprise Gift with the Novel! (Any Guesses?)

My views on this Book:

It is always exciting to read something unique. I had reviewed many books but out of them book Go Clown was something ‘one of its kind’.  Its tagline is enough to merge your imagination to it ‘#AccheDin for Comedy’. When I got this book delivered, it was a different kind of pleasure in holding it in my hands. Thanks to Author Paradise, for giving me a chance to review such a great master-piece.

The main point of attraction in any book is its back-cover synopsis and looks, this hooks the readers attraction towards book to complete it in one go. When I read its synopsis for the first time it was like amazing and something unexceptional. Yes, it is completely different and catchy as well, especially the poem in end. When I wentfrom the first page to the end. Every page brings a new excitement and smile on face. In creatin through the first few chapters, story went in a good pace and narration of Author applies the icing on cake, I mean author has good storytelling strength. It never makes you bore while reading it, yeah there are few plots where the story is too stretched. But, from the very first page, the story attracts your attention. Its characters were very nicely defined and it creates a very good image about the book. The character description and storyline shows the mind-blowing imagination of author behind it.

This book is full of laugh-out factors, in creating smiles with words, Author has really done a great job indeed. The first half of book is quite amazing and the second half is more amazing than first one. Sometimes the story motivates, sometimes it makes you laugh, sometimes it looks inspiring on the same hand it hooks your attention so well that you couldn’t convince yourself to close this book before finishing it.

I would like to thanks the author for creating such a unique and entertaining story. I’ll be surely waiting to read his future works.

The Prince of Parliputa by Shreyas Bhave (Book Review)

Book Reviews

Book: The Prince of Patliputra (Ashok Trilogy 1)

Author: Shreyas Bhave

Publisher: Leadstart corp. (Frog Books)

Genre: Mythological (Fiction)

Reviewer: Harshit Pandey

shreyas.jpg

About the Book:

272 BC BHARATHVARSHA, LAND OF THE ARYAS Samrat Bindusar, son of Chandragupta and the second Samrat Chakravartin of all the Aryas rules over the massive subcontinent from his holy seat in Patliputra. Almost five decades ago, his father had laid the wealth and glory of the past has subsided. As the Samrat’s health continues to decline due to an unknown illness, problems are arising all over his realm. There is infighting and rebellion. No clear successor to him is present. Ninety nine of his sons stand in line waiting for his throne. Bharathvarsha needs a Chandragupta once again. And it needs a Chanakya too. Can the young Prince Asoka, who is the least favorite son of the Samrat, fill the boots of his grandfather? Can Radhagupta, a mere Councilor of the Court be what Chanakya was to all the Aryas? Begin a new adventure with the first book of the Ashoka trilogy as you read to find the answer to one great question- That who shall be the next Samrat of this holy land of the Aryas?

My thoughts on this book: 

“Samrat Ashok” this name is a very main part of Indian History. I’d read about him in my class 7 history textbook, and  I was very inspired from his character, his bravery, his ability to think, his strengths. But, it was not so well defined in that book.

So, when the first time I read the title of the book, I can’t control myself to take a journey of it by flipping through its pages. The back-cover synopsis of the book has the strength to keep the reader’s focus hooked at it. I’m not fan Mythological novels, but the main reason for me behind reading this book is that it is related with “Ashok”

Prologue did a little a little job to ignite my affection towards its story. When I flip through the first few pages of the book, I found my imagination at the peak. It takes me to the time when our country was being ruled by Maurya Dynasty. Specially the first introduction of Ashok, while he was been attacked by his enemies was magnificent.  Everything was defined very well, the characters were also very cleverly chosen. The author shows the story of Rise of Ashok by telling his tales of his bravery and achievements. The author’s writing style has got the spark which doesn’t let you to keep this book down.

When it comes to count the drawbacks of this book, I would like to mention some:-

 First, sometimes in the book, the story feels boring because author has stretched few scenarios for too long.

Second, there is a lot of editing mistakes in this book, which last a bad impression about the book on reader’s mind.

Third, the price of this book is Rs. 350 which makes this book an expensive one. If anyone pays such price to buy book, it’s meant to be a satisfying read.

I got this book from the author, in exchange of an honest review. I did my best to give one too.  As this is debut novel of Author Shreyas, this is a very good attempt by him. I’ll be willingly waiting for next book of this series.

 

Cover:

The cover this book gives it a real mythological look. Its texture feels fantastic and the image used in the background is just awesome.  An ancient Indian map used as background is a very unique item. The color scheme of this cover also furnishes its catchy strength. Over this book’s cover is best at its place.

History Revisited by Nishant Joshi (Book Review)

Book: History Revisited

Publisher: Leadstart Corp. (Frog Books)

Genre: Fiction

About The Book:

Meet Nishant, Suraj and Sachin, three “unlucky” guys. Finding themselves stuck in the thirty-fifth century B.C after being plunged by a near death experience into a time portal, their luck flips around. They find themselves trapped in a bloody conflict raging between two opposing dynasties. They stumble upon a dynastic princess and her new born baby and resolve to unite her with her prince from the opposing dynasty. During their quest, they must seek a time locator that could allow them to return to their own time but not before they discover fantastical weapons which give them various supernatural powers. Overseeing the evil in the world, a demonic sorcerer wields the blackest magic and destroys the whole dynastic army. Can the three stop him or will they, like the army, perish in the attempt? Will they be able to finally return to their own time? Can they overcome their bad luck or has destiny planned something else for them?

My thoughts on this book:

“Science-Fiction”, the word in itself means something unique and interesting. We all love to watch Sci-fi movies, shows, and even we love to read about sci-fi stories. This time when it comes to my reading experience, the novel “History Revisited” is first of its kind. This story is totally inspired from sci-fi. Author Nishant Joshi has served a very interesting and unique story, which everyone will surely love to read.

The story of this book related with three guys, who by mistake travelled into a time portal and reached the era of 4000 B.C. This story looks kickass at first experience. I mean it’s not very common to read such stories. The imagination behind this book really needs to be complimented. Author has presented a great combination of action, emotions, love and friendship. The scenes that author has created in his book, makes you feel like your imaginations are coming true. The back cover synopsis is important for a book, when it comes to attract readers, this book fulfill on that need too. The Author has brilliantly woven his words to create an eye catching story. From the first page to the last, there is hair raising twist and turn on every next page.

When it comes to drawbacks of this book, I really need to say that on my margin this book is a onetime read. Yeah! Sometimes author’s narration fails in describing the scenarios. As I went through this book, few chapters are like brilliant and few are also like boring stuff. But, this is a really nice attempt by author.

I got this book for exchange of a honest review. I would like to thank the Author of this book “Mr. Nishant Joshi” for presenting such a wonderful story. I’ll be waiting for his future creations from his pen.

Cover:

In the field of looks, this book is really heart-winning. The graphics shown of the cover is just magnificent. It is catchy and beautiful. The cover also determines the story to a little. But the main work for a book cover is to attract readers and implies the book’s content, this covers fulfill to both these criteria’s. The color scheme of the cover is very catchy and attractive.

Some work from Home tips you should know,

Sunday Special

As a writer, someone who needs plenty of time and space to come up with interesting ideas, standard office jobs are difficult to work in. You’re always being watched, and your productivity monitored. You might even be scolded for staring out of the window as you’re gathering your thoughts on your article.

Work From Home Tips

Work From Home Tips

With that said, here are three ways to make the most out of working from home:

1. Use Security Measures To Protect Your Work

Since most of your work as a content creator is online, you need to use security measures. If you’re working independently using an Internet-connected computer, you can install anti-virus software on your local hard-drive. However, if you’re working as a telecommuter and accessing corporate resources to do your work, you need to ask if the network administrator is taking enterprise security measures to protect your information. With this type of system, intelligence can be shared across many secured layers.

2. Choose A Designated Place To Work

Yes, you can work from anywhere. You can set up your office in a coffee shop or on a beach chair. After all, you just need a laptop with Wi-Fi connectivity. However, the thrill of being able to work anywhere eventually wears off.

An office offers certain advantages that the nomadic lifestyle of a free-ranging human does not provide. For instance, it’s nice to be able to have your reference books close at hand; it’s easy to access your paper files to look up archived information; and it’s convenient to use your notebook and pen to sketch out mind maps as you work. In other words, you can populate your space with all the things you need to be creative, productive, and fulfilled.

There is also something magical about having a sacred space, the one place where you can focus on your most important ritual. In your case, it might be coming up with brilliant ideas that shake up the world from its dogmatic complacency.

While a home office is similar to a traditional office, it often has much less space. So when setting up your home office, take a look at catalogs and websites that show examples of contemporary home office furniture. You will get a lot of great ideas on the best type of desk, chair, and shelving that you need for the amount of space you’re working in.

3. Create A Productive Daily Work Schedule

It’s amazing how much more work you can get done in a standard office than you do at home. This is a discomforting truth that many home office workers quickly discover.

Why does this happen? Although you are sitting at a desk with plenty of work in front of you in both scenarios, and you are in a much more comfortable setting in a home office, you find you can get much more writing done in a traditional office.

Here’s the irony of the situation, freedom rarely syncs well with productivity.

In a standard office, you have a little freedom. You are expected to be in the office over a designated period of time. You have limited break times. And your family and friends, knowing you are at work, don’t call you. In addition, people are always passing by and you feel obligated to look busy—after all, you’re being paid for every hour you spend there.

In a home office, you can work when you please. You can take extended breaks. And family and friends can’t distinguish between when you are working and when you are free to talk. In addition, nobody is keeping an eye on you—and if a five-minute break visiting Facebook turns into a one-hour session with your friends, nobody is the wiser for it. Then, of course, there is the refrigerator, the television, and a to-do list of errands and chores you didn’t get done earlier.

It takes a tremendous amount of self-discipline to impose the same rigorous work ethic that you showed in the office. It’s only too easy to dismiss link surfing as research when you are not working under the clock, and it’s difficult to just sit there plodding away on your keyboard when you could be doing something much more interesting.

Alternatively, you could also overdo it, and refuse to get up from your desk, working endless hours. The result is the same. You will eventually need to take an extended break to recover from your exhaustion. Because you did not pace yourself, sliding from overwork to a prolonged rest period to recuperate, you end up not being as productive as you had hoped.

The best way to become a productive home office worker is to impose a working schedule that has many of the elements of your former job. For instance, find ways to work the same number of hours.
Best of All Possible Worlds

As someone who works from home as a writer, you have the best of all possible worlds. You’re free of the tyranny of the rat race, the daily commute, and the lack of creative freedom to express yourself. You can also earn a decent living by telecommuting for a company, working as a freelancer, or developing your own projects. By taking these three steps to protect your work, design the right environment, and create a productive routine, you can take full advantage of your new lifestyle.

 

My Thoughts after watching ShahRukh Khan’s FAN

Sunday Special

2016..This year is like a boon of the bollywood lovers, because we have some phenomenonal releases this year. From shahrukh – salman clash to biopics and what not??? This year we experienced some good films like wazir, airlift, aligarh, neerja and the recently released family drama kapoor and sons. So this week’s release is no exception to the list of the most awaited film of the year…Yes I am talking about SRK’S recently released FAN.

Captureffffffff.JPG
The film is about a local Delhi boy Gaurav Chanda(Srk) who just worships film star Aryan khanna(Also played by Srk). He only wants to live the dream of meeting his star. After winning his colony acting competition he decides to give his winning trophy to Aryan khanna. He then goes to Mumbai to personally wish his star on his birthday by dedicating the winning trophy to him. But Gaurav comes across a catastrophic moment in his life? What is it? For that you need to watch the film.
Frankly speaking I am not an SRK fan, but when I saw the trailer of FAN I was eagerly waiting for this film and yes this film didn’t disappoint me. The film is really a very good comeback by Shah Rukh for sure after some disastrous films like Dilwale and Happy New Year.
The 1st half of the film is very good and it keeps the audience at the edge of their seats, unfortunately the 2nd half just backslides down. Many unrealistic things happen and the film which the audiences expected to be a thriller turns out to be a masala entertainer. Even if there are some fake things in the film Shah Rukh just can’t stop entertaining you. The role of Aryan Khanna is portrayed well by SRK but the one who steals the show is the role of Gaurav Chanda played by him which is just outstanding!!!
Coming next to the direction of the film Maneesh Sharma just lost the flow of the film. He started the film so well but later inspite of having a great script and Shah Rukh Khan he failed to deliver a perfect masterpiece.
The Cinematography done by Manu Anand is just flawless. He has managed to capture some very good shots in the film. The background score of the film is OK..not too good. The editing done by Namrata rao is not upto the mark. They should have reduced the film duration by 10 to 15 minutes by just editing those unnecessary scenes.
The supporting actors in the film did not have much work but have managed to give there best in their respective roles.
The film released under Yash Raj banner has many things for Shah Rukh fans. Do not miss the film if you are a fan of SRK. The acting done by Shah Rukh is the best acting after My name is Khan. So even if the film has some fake things it does not step down to entertain the audiences.

 

Completely Incomplete by Abhishek Aggarwal

Book Reviews, Uncategorized

Book: Completely Incomplete

Author: Abhishek Aggarawal

Publisher: Petals Publishers

Genre: Fiction

Reviewer: Harshit Pandey

51tKxvndT6L._SX355_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

About The Book:

Have you seen a person getting perplexed for whom to love; the one who has beautiful eyes or the one who has a beautiful heart? Jai, was wedged in the topsy-turvy to whom to Love. Now, what happens when a flirty boy turns out to be grave for someone – someone who is mislaid from his life? This transformation in his life teaches him lessons worth millions.
The copy in your hand tells you the experience of Jai, while he chooses right partner for himself.

Are you too confused for the same…? Have you ever faced any similar confusion…?

My thoughts about Book:

I’d been familiar to Abhishek Aggrwal’s writing style, as I’d already read his ‘Forgetting the Unforgettable’. I loved that book, and with the same expectation I picked up his “Completely Incomplete”. It also stands on my expectations too.

The looks of this book is very catchy, it looks very beautiful and attractive as well. As I came to the title “completely incomplete”, it was enough to ignite my eager to complete it. The title is very unique in itself.  As I went through its Prologue, my curiosity for this book was at the peak. After turning first few pages of the book, my interest in its story increased more. I’m very fond of author’s writing style; it has the capacity which hooked the attention of readers.

In the first half of this book, the author’s grip onto his main story is really appreciable. The story never feels like other boring love stories, every page brings a new excitement. It is something different and interesting as well.  The whole story revolves around the main character Jai. The scenes that author has created in his book is very good. The story never looks weak; from beginning to end it is full of twists and turns.  In the way author has presented his characters in this story, is really inspiring. The second half of the story brings hair raising twists after every page I turn. Specially, the ending part when Jai came to know about Diya.

One more good taught from this book is of “Organ donation”. In this story, Diya has donated her Heart and her eyes. Her heart was still beating in someone else’s body? Someone is still observing this world form her eyes? Isn’t it great? Really, author has created a very meaningful story. In the end Jai has found his love in Radhika because Diya’s innocent heart was still beating in Radhika’a body. This love story is going to be memorizing one for me.

This book has got several plus points, but one of its major drawbacks is its worse editing work. I’d found more than 20, editing mistakes in it. But, I supposed it to be restored in its next editions.  In the end, I would like to thank the author for giving me the chance to review this wonderful book. I’m very glad to be its reviewer. I’ll be waiting to read next creations from Author’s pen in future. Thank you,

 

Cover:

As I’d also mentioned above that in the matters of looks, this book is very good. Its cover plays an important role in making it catchy and beautiful. The background image used in the cover is very beautiful and the blue and white theme looks great with it. The font used to write the title “Completely Incomplete” is also one plus point to its beauty.

Ponytail The Love for Revenge (Book review)

Book Reviews

Book:- Ponytail The love for revenge

Author:- Pradip Chauhan

Publisher:- hrcpublisher.com

Genre:- Fiction

Total Pages:- 168

Capturedddddd

About the Book:

Ponytail is the story of a man, who has spent his life for making money and becoming powerful. He has his own motives of life and to achieve his goals, he falls in love; that changes his life…

 

Review:

When, every new book I held in my hands to read, I had a lot of expectations from it. Every book is a journey to fictional world which author has created. If I’m giving my half day in completing a book, it must have to be a satisfying read. But, the book “Ponytail- The love for revenge” has really disappointed me in this field.

The look of book matters, when it comes to attract readers.  But this book is really disappointing in matters of looks too. First, its size is much smaller in comparison to other novels. Use of low quality page, also make it feel dull. The text font used in this book, is also not so attractive. When it comes to cover of this book, it is similar to cover of any magazine’s cover. As a reviewer I managed it to carry on reading this book after seeing so much of drawbacks in it. First I’ll like to mention about the writing style of author. It is simple, and I felt a lack of clearness in his writing style. When anyone buys a book, he/she wants it to be entertaining. But the story of this book also fails in it too. The back-cover synopsis fails in attracting reader’s attention to it.

First half of this book is too boring and Author had maintained very less grip onto his main story. Characters were nicely defined and somehow this helps me to carry on my reading. As this is a love story, but sometimes it doesn’t feel like one.  Yeah I can’t neglect its second half; it returns a little bit interest back to the book and ending was enjoyable.

In page no 166, where “About the Author” is written, I found a spelling error in it. In the second paragraph, ‘As usual any other authors…’ there is “as” missing between Usual and any.

I got this book for free in exchange of an honest review. I think I tried my best to give one too. I know it’s very difficult for an author to pen down his thoughts in form of a book. But being real, there is nothing much in this book to be praised. Author Dr. Pradip Chauhan has writing talent but it need to be polished. I’ll be surely waiting for his future creations from his pen. Thank you!

My first reaction after observing this book’s cover was “Is it a cover or what?” I mean, there is nothing beautiful or attractive in it. Even, it has no connection with the main story. The image used for the background is of low resolution and feel very dull. The theme of red / brown also looks untidy. When it comes to the heading, it is also written in a dirty font. In the whole cover, there is nothing to be praised. It has really disappointed me.
