Book Genre- Historical fiction

About Book- The shift in the time frames, from past to present are seamlessly flowing with respective characters. The novelist has done dense research in every detail of the repertoire, the training of the devadasis, and their style. I was awestruck. It was mind-blowing, to think about how she could even decipher various Adams and various mudras used by us, dancers. -Kalaimamani Dr. Radhika Shurajit, Dancer, Teacher, Choreographer, Chennai This fiction is a standing testament that though times have changed immensely, the bare human emotion towards art and feelings towards fellow human beings remain the same and are truly eternal. A devadasi of the yesteryear would not fret towards a polygamous institution as much as a conditioned woman today would. The ironies are brought out gracefully while normalising many human emotions, probably considered a taboo by the general public. - Partook Sudha Murali, Historian, Teacher, Public speaker, Chennai In this fabulous post-modernistic, historical fiction with feministic metaphors, the protagonist Poorna's perspective towards her man reads so much like the modern representation of the temple a woman married to God. - - Raghav Sankar. Banking professional, Singapore This creative work is very unique in putting together apparently disjointed fragments spanning centuries and geographical locations and an array of characters from different eras with their quirky and very specific to times tonality and expressions. The unfolding of the characters and the experiences of the temple dancer communities bring to the reader an unrivalled perspective of the honour and dignity of the much-misrepresented class of women. -Usha Nagasamy, Lecturer in Further Education College, London The expansive postmodernist novel peopled with over a dozen characters, spanning generations, different ages, and varying milieus successfully trashes several misconceptions regarding the devadasi culture in India. It attempts to correct the distorted picture of the cyst

14. THE FAKE DEGREE


Author Name- Bir Singh Yadav

Book Type- Fiction

Book Genre- Contemporary

About Book- We are, forever searching for something in our lives. And tragedy begins when we actually find it. Yet search is integral to life and it can culminate both in joy as well as intrigue. Risk has to be taken and life has to be accepted as it unfolds, whether it is to our liking or not. Dev realized as a School boy that mainstream medicine was a farce. He studied medicine and became a Veterinary Doctor. Torn between precept and practice, he realized that farce is far more ubiquitous phenomenon in society than he had ever imagined. It is like all running in a direction simply because others were running in that direction, without knowing where to. There is an Urdu couplet which says: I had taken just one step in the direction my heart indicated, and for the rest of my life, my destiny searched hard for me. Do we reach our desired destination in our lifetime? Or we end up calling whatever we get, or reach to, as our destination, or destiny? Is education limited to getting diplomas and degrees irrespective of their relevance to evolving society? And that too by all means, fair or foul? Perhaps yes. This explains why cheating in examinations is so rampant. That’s why we have a market for fake degrees. When most things around us are fake, an occasional genuine is seen as a threat. There was a community of the born-blind, so goes a story. A man with good eyesight walks into this community. He empathizes with the community and wants to do something for it. But the community gangs up against him, declares his activities suspicious, calls him `blind’! The man gets wind of it and runs away to save his life. The same is the case with Dev, the protagonist of this story, except that he doesn’t run away. He stays put.

Book Type- Non-Fiction

Book Genre- Chemotherapy

About Book- Our understanding of cancer is slowly undergoing a revolution, allowing for the development of more effective treatments. For the first time ever, the death rate from cancer is showing a steady decline … but the ‘War on Cancer’ has hardly been won.

In The Cancer Code, Dr Jason Fung offers a revolutionary new understanding of this invasive, often fatal disease – what it is, how it manifests and why it is so challenging to treat. In this rousing narrative, Dr Fung identifies the medical community’s many missteps in cancer research – in particular, its focus on genetics, or what he terms the ‘seed’ of cancer, at the expense of examining the ‘soil,’ or the conditions under which cancer flourishes. Dr Fung – whose ground-breaking work in the treatment of obesity and diabetes has won him international acclaim – suggests that the primary disease pathway of cancer is caused by the dysregulation of insulin. In fact, obesity and type 2 diabetes significantly increase an individual’s risk of cancer.

When everything was dreamy and perfect, life threw her a curveball.

From blank calls to missed calls on the landline, their love transitioned to mobile phones. But would they be able to survive the test of time and distance?

‘Till the End of Time’ is an innocent love story from an innocent time. Was falling and staying in love in the pre-social media era easy?

Perhaps, not all love stories are meant to be forever. Or are they? Is it even love if it is not forever? Is it possible to love someone beyond the expectation of being together and still be happy?

A love story that entangles promises of undying love on the one hand and unsaid feelings on the other.


97. JUGALBANDI: THE BJP BEFORE MODI


Author Name- Vinay Sitapati

Book Type- Non-Fiction

Book Genre- Politics

About Book- Narendra Modi has been a hundred years in the making. Vinay Sitapati's Jugalbandi provides this backstory to his current dominance in Indian politics. It begins with the creation of Hindu nationalism as a response to British-induced elections in the 1920s, moves on to the formation of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 1980, and ends with its first national government, from 1998 to 2004. And it follows this journey through the entangled lives of its founding jugalbandi: Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Lal Krishna Advani. Over their six-decade-long relationship, Vajpayee and Advani worked as a team despite differences in personality and beliefs. What kept them together was fraternal love and professional synergy, of course, but also, above all, an ideology that stressed on unity. Their partnership explains what the BJP before Modi was, and why it won. In supporting, roles are a cast of characters-from the warden's wife who made room for Vajpayee in her family to the billionaire grandson of Pakistan's founder who happened to be a major early funder of the BJP. Based on private papers, party documents, newspapers and over two hundred interviews, this is a must-read for those interested in the ideology that now rules India.
