Set in a picturesque location right by the sea, the residents of Heliconia Lane often used to boast about its security and mesmerizing beauty. But all that changed when twenty years ago, the newly married Farideh disappeared and was never to be found.

There are some bookstores that have soul. You walk in & they fill you with a sense of happiness. You smile, you browse, you never want to leave. When it comes to children’s bookstores, there are few that have simplicity & a sense of wonder. We fell in love with the iconic Lightroom Bookstore in Cooke Town , Bangalore. Aashti curates the most wonderful books and gives so much of herself to run this little oasis. ⁣ ⁣ This weekend, we conducted a lovely story telling session of our books A to Z of India & Colours of India. Much to the delight of the little ones attending, we also surprised them with our Giant Floor Puzzle treasure hunt and Memory Match Up Ice breaker. We also sang and danced to our A to Z of India song! Big hit it was, we were told - not by the parents, but the little ones :) that’s what we like to hear! ⁣ ⁣ If you’re in Bangalore, visit Lightroom Bookstore with your kids. You won’t regret it. Both of our collections are available there in full! But don’t go for us, just go. We promise you’ll leave with something! ⁣ ⁣ #mumsofbangalore #lightroombookstore #kidlit #indianbooks #indiangames #indiangifts #lightroombookstore #indigrowkids #atozofindia #coloursofindia

“𝙔𝙤𝙪 𝙢𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙩𝙖𝙡𝙠 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙁𝙚𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙨𝙩 𝙁𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝘾𝙡𝙪𝙗”. • • • Hey guys ,How are you all? For Someone who is struggling with self identity in this umbrella of patriarchy , I bring you This week’s book , Feminist Fight Club. In one word this book is a delight. The illustrations and writing just makes you a fan of the author. There are not many book where I can say I laughed so much but this book sure was good dose of happiness. It’s a mix of sensible logic with our daily life so it made it relatable at the same time funny. This book defines witty humour. I actually underlined so many lines along the way. This book even made me realise how normalised inequality has become and not everyone talks about it.The author carries out serious research on sexism and unconscious bias in the workplace and makes it available, easy to digest, and quite fun to read. I initially bought this book for my mother but ended up reading it for myself. The tips and suggestions given in the book were so accurate and 100% applicable. I cannot recommend this book enough for both men and women. This is the ultimate survival guide or in my case my everyday Bible for casual sexism. #jessicabennett #feminist #feministfightclub #feministliterature #girls #book #bookstagram #books #literature #delhibookstagrammer #indianbooks #indianbookstagram #bookshelf #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookstoread #bookshelves #library #feminism #equality #women #womenempowerment

It’s the season of Halloween and how can we not talk about Salem Witch Trial. For people who don’t know about this event that took place back in 1692 where few women were accused of practising witchcraft and hanged to death , you can find plenty of books and articled on this and soon there will be a movie too. Here are some interesting facts about the whole incident. The infamous Salem witch trials began during the spring of 1692, after a group of young girls in Salem Village, Massachusetts, claimed to be possessed by the devil and accused several local women of witchcraft. This lead to The Salem witch trials which were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts between February 1692 and May 1693. More than 200 people were accused, 19 of whom were found guilty and executed by hanging. Twenty people were eventually executed as witches, but contrary to popular belief, none of the condemned was burned at the stake. In accordance with English law, 19 of the victims of the Salem Witch Trials were instead taken to the infamous Gallows Hill to die by hanging.

My thoughts on "One Precious Moment by Ritu Kakkar" Rating - 2/5 This is the story of Mira Singh who loses her husband, Rahul, at a young age. The story takes us through their journey, how they met, fell in love, got married and how Mira tried to move on after Rahul dies. Firstly, I would like to talk about the message this story tried to deliver. Moving on after facing a deep personal loss can prove to be an impossible task. It takes a long time to deal with the trauma and to accept the reality and move on. We are made aware of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and how it affects the life of an individual. The story teaches us to enjoy and appreciate every moment we spend with our loved ones as life itself is unpredictable. The execution, however, is where the story falls flat. It is a generic love story, something we all have read or watched before. There wasn't anything new to offer. I was least interested in Mira and Rahul's love story and really didn't like Rahul's character. There was little to no character development and all the emotions they tried to express felt bland. With frequent use of "Hey" in the beginning of sentences, the narration wasn't convincing too. It is one of those stories which you feel is about to pick up but never does. In the end you just wish for a happy ending. This could have been an emotional rollercoaster if the execution and narration were on point. Thank you for reading. Have a great day 😊 . . . . . . #bookreview #indianbookstagrammer #indianbookstagram #indianauthors #indianbooks #bookoftheday #bookstagramofindia #instabook #booksofinstagram #booklover #booklove #bookish #bookobsessed #booknerd #bookworm #bookstagramfeature

🔶🔸Book Review🔸🔶 Title: Selfish Betrayal Author: Abhishek Kapoor ( @theselfishbetrayals ) Monty C Dinghra is a private investigator who wants to achieve more in life than being named as womanizer investigator. One day on his way back to home after a investigation, he sees murder of a famous model of Kanpur City. He takes it as his chance to prove him as investigator by catching the guilty before police man and starts investigation privately without letting the police to know about his investigation. From the clues in the murder scene, he lists three primary suspects, Sooraj Singh - a poor driver, Shams ud din - famous tailor of Kanpur and Hargurjit Singh - Scarlett White's ex-husband. With help of his apprentice, Chetan Prasad, Monty manages to interrogate all the three suspects. Does he find the suspect before police? . . It was a nice experience reading the book. The plot is perfectly planned and interesting tying readers to the book. The twist in the end is unexpected. Even though analogies used to describe the situations were annoying, it has sense of social awareness and sarcasm on present problems of society in most of them. Get ready to be betrayed :) .

Book Title: The Patomskiy Crater Author : Khemkarann Pages : 352 The Language used is simple and understandable. Cover creeps me out for some reasons, it's really intriguing. Title of the story is interesting. I haven't heard about this. But after reading this book I found it is such a adventurous read. Writing is Clear, but some confusion created somewhere in the middle due to too much of characters. You can easily suspect the story type simply by its cover, intriguing though. Too much of Characters and description but the book is a fast read. Author research is appreciatable. The story is informative too. Story shuffles between past and the present events. Fascinating adventures which shifts me there while reading it. Gripping adventures which left me wanting more of it. #thepatomskiycrater #khemkaran #thriller #adventureread #bookstagram #books #bookworm #bookshelf #bookstores #bookalicious #bookstagrammer #bookobsessed #booksbooksbooks #indianblogger #indianbooks #indianbookreviewer #bookblogging #booksuggestions #bookaholic #bookreviews

My library pics for the week: The Many Colors of Harpreet Singh - great book about a little boy’s struggle with making friends in a new school and how he expresses himself through the colors of his clothes and turban. And Mama’s Saris about young Indian girls desire to wear one of her mother’s saris in order to feel as beautiful as her mama. Both books celebrate culture, identity, and are really and truly universal to feelings all children experience regardless of race, culture, ethnicity or background. So glad I stumbled upon these. #childrensbooks #booksofinstagram #diversityinchildrensbooks #wereadtoo #indianbooks #diversityinliterature

#Halloween Series #1. Book : Darkness (Ratnakar Matkari, translated by Vikrant Pande.) [Oct. 25, '19]. 🕯️ "Ghosts are not monsters. Death doesn't change who we are, only how we exist." -Lady of the house (Darkness). 🕯️ Turned the first page.Lights went out. I was completely engulfed in darkness. Seconds later a burning lamp appeared. I felt ready.I looked at the book once again. A voice somewhere from behind said "proceed". I did. 🕯️As I started reading I felt excitement rushing inside me. I finished the first tale. The boy who could predict your death appeared in the dark room. I kept turning pages. "Traditional Indian horror-something i wanted to read for so long". I continued.The room kept filling. 🕯️ The clock indicating death filled the room with its loud sound. The boy who fell off the cliff with his black dog stared. The king who stole youth from young men with his sword grinned. The women who could kill a person from her prayers sat still ,her mouth mumbling words incomprehensible. I heard the lady of the house who refused to leave her home even after death laugh- her Eerie laugh. 🕯️ 18 tales. One book of mysteries, Imagination and horror. I read 15 of them. Saved 3 for some other times cause that's the rule ",you don't read an Anthology in one sitting. It's not a novel. Read some, let them linger, come back again." I managed to predict some, some left me wondering and.... wondering. It felt like I was watching episodes of SSHH FIR KOI HAI OR AAHAT, not scary but surely engaging. A page turner. 🕯️ I finally looked up and now I was in a room full ghosts and what not. I closed the book. Everything and everyone disappeared and I was back into my room,at home. 🕯️ "How was the journey", the voice spoke again. - strangely..... exciting?. "What did you like?" - varieties and the way they were crafted. "Any favourites?" -PRAYER, BIRTHDAY, DARKNESS, LOST CHILD, TWO KIDS. "How many stars 🌟 for now", the author smiled. "4🌟 for keeping me entertained", I smiled back. .

Posted @withrepost@bookworm_tigress What's your sweetest childhood memory?? . Nostalgia is the most hated and loved emotion in the world, i think.. Because of its close connection to memories... Memories can unfurl any person, the strongest man would fall prey to a memory of childhood and show an act of weakness... . . Reading Men and Dreams in Dhauldhar made me relive a lot of those memories...since my family hails from Himachal... I could recognize a lot of what Mangu Ram felt, even though he is not the protagonist, the anxiety for the things that are new, remembrance of the old and forgotten... Even the folk song heard by Nanda on Lohri, BTW , the song lyrics are not accurate or their meaning... I will DM you the youtube song link...😄 . . I liked the characters and the complexity they had.. It was like knowing real people, with real problems. With the number of people in the book, keeping everyone with their own distinct flavor is quite a feat especially for a debut author. Their journey feels real and you get invested in their lives to an extent, that you do not know how you'll come out of it once it has ended. . The pace does get at you, especially with the civil engineering technical jargon, but it does have a role in the long term... The end felt a bit open, and i think a few threads were left as they were, but i guess threads of life do not always get a closure, so its apt.... . . Pic shot by me and edited by @mayank_gupta , who looks like he is my nephew...kya hai apki twacha ka raaz... If you do have something to say, start your comments with 🌼, i just want to see how many people actually read the captions.... . . #menanddreamsinthedhauladhar #kocherycshibu #indianbookstagrammer #indianbooks #debutauthor #bookblogging #bookfanatic #bookandnature #nostalgia #nostalgicbooks #bookinspiration #bookinstagram #bookgasm #bookedandbusy #bookishallure #bookaddict

As a parent, I'd try my best to keep lines of communication open with V so that she can approach me with any problem. I'd like to have a mature, unconditional and non-judgmental relationship with her. . My Blue Elephant starts with the protagonist declaring that she has an elephant in her room! At first, she has fun with him and makes up games with him. But he keeps growing and growing, until it starts becoming an inconvenience. How much longer until somebody knows? What should she do? @vidyavaradarajanofficial , take a bow! What looks like a silly children's book at first glance, is actually a very clever story to encourage children to always reach out to an adult when they have difficult or scary secrets. I loved the slight open-ended climax, which serves as a great conversation starter as well. Though we aren't given much of a peek into the parent's reaction as it is immaterial in this scenario, it is also a subtle reminder to me, the adult reader to handle situations gracefully, when the child trusts one enough to come up with a problem. We also ended up discussing the blue colour of the elephant. V found it very funny that an elephant could be blue. ( Elephants are never blue, amma, hahahah!). But again, I admired how the author connected the idea of a secret with fantasy. However unbelievable or big the secret may be, it is still a problem at the end if kept to oneself. Written in verse, with bright illustrations (I loved the attention to the child's facial expressions given at each stage) and a catchy font, I'd say this book is a keeper, especially if your child is 3+ or has started hiding facts or lying. . . #ammatoday #ammatoday_books #raiseareader #divadntfire #raisingareaders #readtoyourchild #readeveryday #earlylearning #earlyliteracy #kislit #kidsbookstagram #kidsbooks #childrensliterature #readersareleaders #bookworms #bookishmomsandbeyond #indianbooks #kidsbookswelove #iteachtoo #kidsbooksthatmatter #teachersofinstagram #goodreads #bibliophile #childrensbooks #friyeaygood

Good Morning People I just finished reading Shubhangi Swarup's Debut novel Latitudes of Longing and I am in love with this gem of a book. It will take me some time to gather my thoughts on it and write a review but it's a must read. This book is a celebration of life on earth and one of the finest works of the art known as storytelling. I wish I could express in words what this book has made me feel but I am not as good as Shubhangi with words. I will just say that please please read this book. You can't not pass this one. . “Disbelief it turns out, is belief of it's own kind. It is a river that flows against the overbearing currents of time and truth to make the opposite journey. It gathers all the mysteries of the ocean and returns them to their frozen origins. In the form of a glacier, it holds its head high up to look at god hiding behind the mists of heaven. What is the purpose of belief if even god can't put the world back the way you worshipped it?” . an excerpt from the book, pp 90. Have a lovely day... .

Story #4 for our Workshop & Discussion on Healing from Heartbreak in collaboration with @thepaooflove & @moodswingsandmargaritas • MINE AGAIN Framed between the two trees with their huge shaving brush flowers, the horizon is halved by the sea and the city – this view is mine. I had told you about my ritual – listening to ‘Boondon ke moti’ at this spot – which is why I suppose you asked to meet me there before we headed to the cinema with our friends. Seated close to you on the promenade, I nervously swung my feet over the tetrapods. It was the first time I was seeing you set against the Bombay skyline – in your white kurta, the 5 pm light falling on you. We shared earphones as you hit play and ‘Boondon ki Moti’ filled the silence. Over the years, we repeated this ritual multiple times – sometimes with the song, and other times without it. It’s ironic that things ended at the same spot where they had begun. And for a while, I wondered if my view would ever exist without your memory. But a year has passed, and I’m back to swinging my feet over the tetrapods. Alone, with my tune, the lyrics matching the rhythm of the waves. The song is mine again.

Story #3 for our Workshop & Discussion on Healing from Heartbreak in collaboration with @thepaooflove & @moodswingsandmargaritas • 41 MINUTES We were huddled in a cab that was moving speedily towards Mulund from Andheri. It was an hour after you'd said, “It’s not you, it’s me,” and I had choked on my beer. There is no such thing as a good break-up, but one that uses a Seinfeld reference must at least rank in the top-10. I had to save this relationship. I checked the map on my phone. Mulund was 41 minutes away, but a long stretch of deep red denoted an enormous traffic jam ahead at Saki Naka. I made a quick decision: Saki Naka’s traffic would be my ally, helping me beat the break-up. My powers of persuasion were always strong, but locked inside a car in slow-moving traffic, I had a captive audience with little choice but to hear me out. I told you nobody would love you like I did, that you would recognise this many years from now, but it would be too late. I reminded you of the happy times, the vacations taken, the jokes made. I quoted Byron, invoked the Beatles, referenced Bollywood. You looked straight ahead. Cleared your throat once. Twice. Turned to me and said, “I tried to love you. I really did. But I couldn’t. And I now want to stop trying.” The signal turned green. Saki Naka was behind us.

By unravelling the science behind Assam's ancient herbal ink 'Mahi', researchers are planning to recreate lost techniques of manuscript writing. They say their efforts could boost heritage tourism. . . The technique involves extracting 'mahi' using cow urine, cocktail of fruit pulp and tree bark such as haritaki, amla, bibhitakhi or bhomora, mango and jamun - often infused with the blood of eels or catfish. Rust from iron tools was also added for intense black hue. . . The endurance of the ink is proven by the stability of sancipat (folios made of bark of the sanci trees) manuscripts. The herbal conviction is resistant to aerial oxidation and fungal attacks. And unlike modern inks it won't fade or get corroded. . . Though there are several recorded recipes for 'mahi', one commonality exists for all that it's concocted in winter season. There were other ancient inks in India made by burning tar, pitch, bones. Carbon was primary pigment. . . #indianinks #ancientink #ancientindia #ancientindianknowledge #manuscripts #scriptures #scripturestudy #ancientbooks #indianbooks #ancientindianhistory #india #indianfacts #indianfactsstation #indianscriptures #vedas #vedicwisdom #vedic #vedicscience #science #inksketch #inks #ancientrelics #ancienttools #ancientscience #ancientarts #mysticarts #ancientartsyarn #ancientartstyle

#Repost @rushme_reviews • • • • • • Book review 24: . Blue Moon Day by Santosh Sivaraj . Foreword . The cover of the book as well as the color scheme is well chosen to fit with the title which also is in keeping with the main theme of the book . About the book: Blue moon day is a book of five short stories .Each story is about ordinary people who under extreme circumstances, tread the unbeaten path /end up doing things outside their normal comfort zone . . . Often in life, it is fear of unknown which restrains us from taking risks or doing something that we are normally not used to. However, if circumstances forced us otherwise, we might be different or better people and achieve bigger and better things just as the stories in the books go to show. . My favourite story was that of a senior person who had lost his zest to live, but when prodded to do something he might never have done normally, it alters his mere existence and gives a purpose to his remaining life The language is simple and easy to comprehend All in all, this one is an interesting and thought provoking book. Takeaway : For those who live life well within their comfort zone like I do, this book really has you thinking whether you should actually try to step beyond. And that in my opinion, is quite a start. . . Rating :⭐⭐⭐⭐ v good . . . .... #indianbooks #indianbookstagrammer #desibook #writersofindia #authorsofindia #indianbookstagram #bookstagramindia #igauthors #readersofindia #indianfiction #indianauthors #indianwriting #indiannovels #indiannovel #indianauthorbooks #indianromancebook #kitaab #panna #lekhak #indianpublishers #indianpublishing #authorsofinsta #indianauthorsofinstagram #bookreview #indianbookreviewer #indianbookreviewers #indianbookreview #indianbooktuber #rushme_reviews
