 Language: English
 Printed Price: INR 350

Writer: Sambhav Khetarpal is one man who as exemplary skills of depicting humor and his portrayal of character Luv Khurana is enthralling. His has beautifully described the life of a wan bee student and Luv Khurana’s character grew with tenacity and suppled with storyline. Sambhav Khetarpal has excellently woven this intricate humorous tale based on MBA college and individuality of protagonist Luv Khurana and his day to day college adventure. This book is no usual college romcom rather it is dipped in humor and meaningful portrait of character. Luv is outstanding while other characters are also made useful quirky. Reading this book makes you realize that it was well contrived and it is different from usual sex indulging college stories. Sambhav I would be really looking forward to read your next book do send me a signed copy (who know later in life I can get that 1st edition of that book uncashed in an auction). This book has a serious potential to drafted in a movie (All the very best).
 Plot: Luv Khurana is an engineering pass out and hopes to make an impact in this world and the industry. Love’s character is ambitious confident and is superlatively quirky. The punches are hard hitting and made me left laugh for a while. A normal Punjabi boy who has his own way of interpretation and who profoundly believes in his way of thinking. Luv decides to pursue MBA from a tear-2 college from Mumbai and he does very well to describes challenges and opportunity of such colleges and describes it well in humorous ways. Luv is outspoken and talented but it is hard for him to concentrate (totally me). I totally corelated with luv’s character and his life in college- I too thought had majority shit people with me, kidding. Luv loved talking to himself aka his diary and his action justified. From his struggle in mess to Mumbai local to summer internship to group discussion to job interviews one can totally connect with his character. Other supporting characters such as Nisha, twinkle and I fancied robin and his wisdom above all. Writing anything more would be providing you with spoilers. Do read this book for you own sake because make you laugh is not kapil sharma’s sole responsibility. Sambhav has diligently crafted a great book and as soon as you start reading it will lure you to complete it.
Luv’s quote: LinkedIn was Facebook for me only wearing professional suit. Quora is Facebook with an IIT degree and twitter is Facebook holding a loudspeaker.

चचा चारों खाने चित्त

ये वृतान्त मेरे बचपन की है, जब हम पड़ोस के बच्चो के साथ खेलते हुए बड़े हुए ना की अपने अपने मोबाइल फोन पे टेम्पल रन खेल के, उस समय कहानी सुनना ही पसन्दीदा काम हुआ करता था | ना ही कोई निन्जा हतोड़ी हुआ करता था और न ही कोई डोरेमोन | बड़ा अच्छा समय था और उसी समय की आँचल से एक कहानी निकाल के लाया हूँ | बात हमारे पडोसी फेकू चचा (चाचा ) की है उन का नाम लेना सही नहीं होगा इसलिए  हम उन्हें इस कहानी में   कमल के नाम से सम्बोधित करते हैं और बांकी पोस्ट की तरह इस पोस्ट में  भी मेरे पिताजी घटना के केन्द्र में  हैं | कमल चाचाजी पिताजी के अच्छे  मित्र थे और दोनों के  बीच में  खींच तान हर दूसरे  मित्र की तरह बदस्तूर जारी था | यूँ तो चाचाजी स्वभाव  के बड़े सरल व्यक्ति थे परन्तु जब चाचा कहानी सुनाते  तो उनकी कहानी आम से शुरू हो के अमरूद तक पहुच जाती और अंत में  चाचाजी कहानी के  नायक की तरह असंभव वस्तु और व्यक्ति  पर विजय प्राप्त कर लेते , चुकि हम थे तो बच्चे और हर असंभव वस्तु हमे चकाचौंध करती अतः  चाचा हमलोगों में  बड़े पॉपुलर थे | गर्मी का मौसम था और चाचा को घेर के बच्चो की मंडली कहानी सुनाने की ज़िद करने लगे, चाचाजी ने  चिर परिचित अंदाज़  में कहानी की शुरुआत  की |
ये कहानी उनकी एक ट्रेन  यात्रा  की थी, कमल  चाचाजी आपने कुछ मित्रों के साथ  पटना जा रहे थे त्योहार का समय था और ट्रेन में काफ़ी भीड़ थी, अभयपुर स्टेशन आने ही वाला था और लगभग शाम हो चली थी , अभयपुर के पास जंगल था और ट्रेन जंगल के पास ही अचानक झटके के साथ रुक गई और २-४ लोग जिनके हाथों में हथियार और मुँह पे कपड़ा बंधा था ट्रेन की ओर लपके और  ट्रेन को   लूटने लगे |  चाचाजी आपने दोस्तो के साथ ट्रेन कोच  के  दरवाज़े की ओर लपके और उसे बंद कर दिया , जब तक लुटेरे उनके कोच की तरफ पहुंचे तब तक लोगों ने सारे खिड़की और दरवाजे बंद कर के या तो सामान वाली जगह पर या गाड़ी के फर्श   पे लेट गए और लुटेरो को भागने पे मजबूर कर दिया |  जैसे ही उनकी कहानी समाप्त हुई हम सभी बचे ताली बजने लग गये इतने में  पिताजी भी ऑफिस से आ  गए | पिताजी चाचा के स्वभाव को भली भांति जानते थे और वो चाय की चुस्की लेते हुए बोल पड़े "ये तेरा बड़बोला पन किसी दिन तुझे मुसीबत में डाल देगा " | बात आई गई और दिन गुज़रने लगे चाचाजी कुछ दिनों बाद फिर आए और इस बार कहानी में  उन्हों ने शेर का शिकार ही कर लिया - पिताजी ने समझाया भी, कि  बच्चों  को गलत आदत मत लगओ ये भी तुम्हरी तरह झूठ बोलने लगेंगे  , पर चाचा कहाँ मनने वाले थे |  बस अब पापा तय कर चुके थे की पानी  सर से ऊपर निकल गया है और कुछ करना आवश्यक है |  ठण्ड का मौसम था और अंधेरा जल्दी हो गया था कमल चाचा चाय की चुस्की लेन पहुंच गए पर आज पिताजी दफ्तर से अभी तक वापस नहीं आये थे , माताजी ने चाचा से कहा की कमलजी पीछे आहाते से कुर्सी ला दीजिए  और चाचा मस्त चल में आहाते की और बढ़ चले | हमारे आहाते में काफी पेड़ थे और अंधेरे में  बड़ा भयावह लगता थाबचपन में  तो कई बार मैं भी डर  गया था पर चाचा को आने वाले संकट का कोई आभास नहीं था , पिताजी ने आज पूरी बिसात बिछा रखी थी चाचा को सबक सिखाने के लिये | उपलों से किये  गए  धुंए ने आहाते को और भयावह बना रखा था , माहौल को देखते ही चाचा की हवा टाइट हो गयी और जैसे तैसे अंधेरे  में  कुर्सी तलाशने लगे | अभी थोड़ा ही आगे बढे थे की उनके ऊपर  कुछ गिरा बस चीख निकलते निकलते रह गयी , हमारे महानायक चाचा आज के  दिन को कोसते हुए अंधेरे  मैं इधर उधर टटोल रहे थे आखिरकार उनकी मेहनत सफल तो हुई पर कुर्सी खली नहीं थी उसपे कोई बैठा था , चाचा को काटो तो खून नहीं और डर ऐसा जिसका को वर्णन नहीं |  चाचा धीरे  धीरे  पीछे सरकने लगे तभी कुर्सी पे बैठे उस आदमी ने उनका हाथ पकड़ लिया और उसके मुँह से लाल रंग की रौशनी निकली पुरे शरीर पे काला कपडा और चेहरे पे भी कला और सफ़ेद कपडा लटका हुआ था और वो वस्तु जोर जोर से डरावनी हंसी में  हंसने लगा, चाचा  गिरते पड़ते वहां से भागे और उनकी चीक सुनके हम सब वहां  जमा  हो गए थे बहादुर की सरी हिम्मत हवा हो गयी और वो ठण्ड में  भी पसीने पसीने हो गए |  उधर पिताजी चेहरे से काला कपड़ा हटाते और   मुस्कराते  हुए आहाते से  आ रहे थे |
एक वो वाक्या  था जिसके बाद चाचाजी  ने कहानी तो सुनाई पर हवाबाज़ी बंद कर दी थी |

The delicious life……

Author: Lekshmi Gopinathan
Format: Kindle
Number of pages : 214
Sold By: Amazon Asia-Pacific Holdings Private Limited
Publishing Date: 11th Nov 2017
Printed Price: INR 49

Writer: I was fascinated by lekshmi Gopinathan way of portraying different characters and never let go hold of any of them.  The proficiency by which the writer takes the story forward is remarkable. The chapter wise presentation of book based on 2 lead character makes reading easy and enjoyable. As we move forward with the story the manner in which the pasts of character unfold is intriguing and finally they converge in the end. The character and story are standalone genius but what makes it a marvel is the inception of food and recipe and becomes the backbone of the story.
Story: The protagonists radhamma and matilda who are heart broken and find a way to mend their soul by food and their sole love emvibed in cooking. Being an avid foodie, I was blown away by both conventional south indian delicacy and unconventional English dishes. At times I was so engulfed that I started smelling food. The men around radhamma and matilda just compliment them. Radhamma is on a quest to revive the life of the villagers of irralipatinam by social and economic reforms education and employment. While may is ridden by loss of her mother and she goes on a bike quest to rediscover her zeal of living and lost happiness. The men in may’s life just pave their way across her journey. The story is based at a fishing village with ideal villagers who are self-motivated to bring a change under Radhamma. The book is like a breath of fresh air a good story and some amazing recipe to offer. Worth reading and it will result in an empty stomach.

Writer: Devraj singh kalsi is one man who as exemplary skills of depicting emotions and his portrayal of character is unmatchable. His has beautifully described all the three leading ladies struck by loss of the only man of the house. Devraj has excellently woven this intricate tale based on relationship loss and individuality. His narration of a Sikh family settled outside Punjab and in a Bengali majority is unbelievable. What moved me more was Devraj’s skill as a writer as he had beautifully built up the characters for an eventful end.

Book: The protagonists Biji, nasib and preet face the loss of the only man in their life. Someone lost a son, a husband and later a father. Every individual has their own ego to battel with and as usual differences among them. The equation between BIji and nasib is tumultuous and the battel ahead lies for the supremacy for the families’ responsibility. Preet is an ambitious girl stuck in a yes-no relationship and amidst the catastrophe of losing her dad she has a responsibility of balancing things between her grandma and her mother. The story takes us through a Sikh funeral customs and rituals and the difference of opinion among character can easily be seen. As the story proceeds preet comes to realize and know some facts about her dad which are both unsettling and disturbing. Her dad was a well-known business man and was respected in the city for his far sightedness. As the story grows the protagonists Biji, nasib and preet come in terms with each other and they stand together to save their business empire and families dignity. The book is well written and inspite of it being about loss it had humor well intact and makes us smile. The generation gap in character is beautifully described and the complexity of emotion is human character is well fetched.

KANSA

KANSA
My review:
Prasant Kevin is one hell of a writer, kudos to the writer for this supple piece of work. It is well contrived and has left me awe stuck. The plot is a result of intricate planning and has the tenacity to take this piece to a greater height. All the characters are having a tumultuous past and a turbulent future. Reading this book enthralled me and left me with an urge for more. Book contains some explicit descriptions of a corrupted mind and some of a beautiful sexual encounter. 40 + murders and all follow a same pattern and the way the mystery unfolds one after another was impeccable. The work of Dr. Black endowments is extraordinary and his unconventional ways of investigation outwit everyone else. The book has been written with contemplation and it will never let you delusional. This book was an odyssey and it edifice’s for the next lined up by writer. Go read it yourself for a better understanding.

 
Product description: OVER A SPAN OF TEN YEARS, HE KILLED FORTY PREGNANT WOMEN AND THEN VANISHED WITHOUT A TRACE. AFTER FIVE YEARS OF SILENCE, HE IS BACK AGAIN, SEEKING HIS NEXT VICTIM. ONLY ONE MAN CAN STOP HIM - PROFESSOR BLACK. Maher was found unconscious in the middle of the highway and later, in the hospital, she revealed that she had escaped from a killer's house. All the details and patterns matched the serial killer 'Kansa,' who had disappeared five years ago after murdering forty pregnant women. ACP Saargi Desai was assigned to the case. She appealed to her department to bring back Professor Black to help her catch the killer. The Professor, who had a haunting past that had kept him away from the world of crime and investigation for several years, was not willing to take on this case. But the ACP managed to convince him to get on board just for this one last time. Soon after agreeing to help, the Professor realized that for the first time in his life, he had met his match. As he dug deeper into the case, everything got dirtier, the stakes went higher, and nothing was what it seemed.

This book, in particular, has all the traits to engage you in an amazing tale of love and positive vibes.

The characters are amazingly crafted and as if they exist in real life. The book is funny witty and has moments to cherish. we are in a progressive world and breaking barriers of religion and culture is bound to happen and is happening.
