Image
Book - Exam Warriors  Author - Narendra Modi  Published by - Penguin  Year - 2018  Review - 5/5 stars 

Isn't this the first time a PM is directly engaging with the students of the country? Maybe not! Maybe yes as well! Literature has no dimensions and PM Modi has proved it yet again with his book - Exam Warriors. This is a self-help book which teaches children, or rather advises them how to cope with the days during the exams which often become loaded with stress and anxiety and a little nervousness. Exam Warriors, just a day after the launch, became all India number 1 bestseller on Amazon and still continues to be so! It has to be impressive, no?

Despite Stolen Dreams - book review

Image
Despite Stolen Dreams is a novel written by famous Indian author Anita Krishan. In this novel, she has made it amply clear that if hatred and violence are one truth in the world, love and peace are another one and rather better than the previous ones. Hers is the story of Wali Khan and his desire to keep the journey of life continued. She has also expressed views like this in many of the author interviews she has done. Wali does not get down on his knees in front of terrorism and he escapes from the bloodshed and violence to save himself and his family and to work towards a better future for them. For a larger part, he succeeds. However, the novelist has wonderfully brought back the force of fear in the novel and she has made it very interesting a read!

Anita Krishan - author in a different league

Image
Anita Krishan, since the dawn of her writing career, has been producing meaningful, serious and artful literary fictions which do not only convey the messages very beautifully but also remain fresh in the minds of the readers years after the read. Out of the two ways that she had when she began writing, Anita has chosen the path of literary fiction and decided to go the way not many fiction writers from India have gone. Anita’s works are for the readers with every predicament – for serious readers as well as the casual fiction readers who just read for the entertainment and that’s the reason she is a popular fiction writer today – among the youths as well as among the perpetual readers who have been admiring the authors like Raja Rao and R K Narayan.
