Author Ravi Dabral and his art of storytelling - opinion

Image
Born and raised in Uttarakhand before moving to Delhi for education, Ravi Dabral has reflected the great Indian heritage in his novel, the debut one, Greed Lust Addiction published back in the early months of 2019. His novel has been received well by the readers in India and abroad. Moreover, the work balances two streams of life - luxury loaded with falsehood and a simple life decorated with truth and righteousness. Nonetheless, even if it all sounds like an author delivering sermons to the readers, it's not like that, at all! Ravi Dabral has delivered an amazing, thrilling and engaging story - crime thriller at its peak in the first half and a fading revenge plot that transforms into something broader in the second part.

Sense and Syllogism by Aparna Tulpule - Review

Image
Aparna Tulpule's book, Sense and Syllogism: Logic in Life, is for the readers and learners. I say learners because her book can easily be used as an academic textbook for the students who are just beginning studying logic and before and after. Written in plain language and packed with examples, lucid explanations, systematic introduction of concepts and many other qualities, the book is very useful, informative and for the common readers, interesting and fresh. I have read this book much like a common reader because I did not bother studying logic - I did not need it. Once I began reading this book, initially, it was just like a humorous dive into the ocean of meanings - believe me! : )

Kahaniwala by Sandeep Dobriyal - Book Review

Image
Kahaniwala is a recent collection of short stories written in Hindi and authored by Sandeep Dobriyal, a debutant in Hindi fiction in India. This is a collection of 9 short stories and most among them revolve around a theme of love. Love of different kinds and some almost love... Sandeep's writing needs many changes in order to make his books appealing to readers across ages and across interest lines. Nonetheless, in the current form that it is, Kahaniwala is a suitable read for the readers who are above 20 and below 30 - they will understand what the author wants to convey. The exception is the story 'Mera Room' and 'Thithurte Hath' that will appeal to any reader of any age.
