I am an open book!

Saurabh Chawla | 0 Comments|



Touch of the luck
Kiss of the fate
I was so stuck
Deep under the weight

Watching the thunder
The cracks in the sky
All I do is wonder
Just one more try

The riots residing inside
Burnt off the fire to ashes
Waited for you to guide
Between the hot flashes

Thought of finding my own way
Started clearing all this mess
A big price I had to pay
In this game of chess

Silently, I read the written pages
Fixed me by the hook
Have to cover all the life stages
Come read, I am an open book!

Private Delhi By Ashwin Sanghi and James Patterson


Title: Private Delhi

Author(s): Ashwin Sanghi, James Patterson

Publisher: Penguin Random House, UK

Number of Pages: 383

Genre: Fiction/Thriller

Review:

After reading Private India, I was eager to read Santosh Wagh's and Jack Morgan's next, Private Delhi. When the two master thriller writers, Ashwin Sanghi and James Patterson join hands together to write, then it's almost impossible that the book will not be an exciting read.

The book which is sequel to Private India revolves around Santosh Wagh's next spine chilling case which involves government as well. People are getting murdered gruesomely and with the higher authorities involved, the information which is needed is hard to decipher. With this, How the cop who was once the head of Private India, Santosh Wagh, will find the criminal?

The story begins with a gruesome murder with human remains being found in the basement of a house the posh area of South Delhi. The suspicion and real thrill is when the politics and the state government is also involved in the matter.

The plot will take you through the journey of murder, corruption and kidnapping. The book also gives you some nail biting experiences as well.

Then the murders go on and these are not simple murders but brutal ones. Santosh Wagh is assigned the task to find the serial killer on the loose. As eh story unfolds itself, a lot of excitement, suspense and intrigue will take its course as the secrets of some high profile individuals in the capital are unfurled. 

India's Dan Brown, Ashwin Sanghi and James Patterson, UK's one of the best writers in the genre have done a remarkable job in the sequel to Private India. Both the writers have weaved a story which is sharp, crisp and exciting to read. The narration and flow of the plot is smooth and well planned. Also, the vivid description of places with the wonderful description of the sounds, smells and emotions of the people are something which will allure you to read the book.

Overall, a very good book for thriller/suspense lovers.

Rating:

I would rate the book 4/5 for the intrigue, smooth language, and nice flow of the plot.

Book Review - My 6/10 Rule of Happiness by Dr. Lalit Adesh

Saurabh Chawla | 1 Comments|







Author: Dr. Lalit Kumar

Number of Pages: 51

Edition: Available in Kindle Edition 

Genre: Non Fiction/Self Help

Book Review:

I would start off with the title of the book which is self explanatory. The author has penned the book wonderfully in a language which is easy to read and understand. 

Being short in length, it took me around forty five minutes to read the book. I am not that much fan of reading on the screen as it tires off my eyes but still the book seemed a good read.

Going by the book, the author has elaborated the life of modern human beings in a simplistic manner. The way we all are engrossed in our work so as to meet the deadlines,  complete the work assigned etc. that we forget the other important aspects of life like spending time with the family, friends, taking care of your health, reducing unnecessary stress that takes a toll on daily basis.

I see the book as a constant reminder of forgetting about all the worries and stress and simply allow time to take its direction. Ultimately time will take the right course. Of course the book is a short read which you can read while traveling or with a cup of tea or coffee in the morning. I would prefer morning as it will keep you reminding about the things you might be missing. 

Work is not everything in life. Personal relationships and professional relationships/deadlines must be maintained in balance. To keep this in mind, go ahead and grab the book. Its available as Kindle edition on Amazon for $0.99 (INR 64).
