Some I love, some I dont, but read I must !

Book Review – Evolving with Subramanian Swamy

I am a fan of Dr. Subramanian Swamy … I feel he should be awarded the Bharat Ratna for sticking to the truth and showing the mirror to many larger than life “dirty” politicians. His wife Roxna Swamy has written the book so yes, its a biased version, […]


Book Review – The Lioness of Morocco

I have always been fascinated by Morocco …. so when I saw this book on the Kindle store, I was very keen to read it. Am so glad that I did. Its an interesting read and gives a great glimpse into life in the 1800’s for a woman […]


Not just a book review – To Sir With Love …

I first read this book way back in 1985 or 1986 at my school library because my English teacher Vidyasagar Sir spoke about it in class. I would literally devour books during those years as there were no distractions. No cellphones, no FB, Twitter and the rest of […]


Book Review – Never Let Me Go, Kazuo Ishiguro

I hadn’t heard of Kazuo Ishiguro till he got the Nobel prize earlier this year. Its sad that I missed reading him all this while. The minute I heard his name, I immediately looked up his books on Kindle and found this title “Never let me go” which […]


Author Review – Arthur Hailey

The very first book that I read of Arthur Hailey’s was “Hotel”. This was way back in 1981 when I was in my 8th standard. I found it fascinating and soon managed to read all his other books, borrowing them from different libraries as was the case then. […]


Life Review – Our Moon Has Blood Clots

This is the only book that has made me cry within the first five pages. “I remembered our kitchen garden back home in Srinagar, and all the tomatoes I had wasted, plucking them before they could ripen and hitting them for sixes with my willow bat. And now […]


Book Review – The sense of an ending 

This book won the Man Booker prize in 2011 and has also been made into a movie. I stumbled upon it because my friend Gopal mentioned it on FB when the movie was released sometime in 2016. I was intrigued by the title so bought the book.  The […]


Thoughts on the “Six Foot Bonsai”

Dear Stacy, I completed reading your book a week back… and I had several emotions running through my heart. The first one was of an overwhelming desire to give you a tight hug and say “you are so beautiful”. We have a saying in my mother tongue Tamil […]


Book Review – New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

BLOT – A MUST READ BOOK. This is probably amongst the most important books I have EVER read and anyone will EVER read ! I say this because John Perkins has managed to open the secret door marked “US of A corporatocracy”. We have seen different types of […]


Book Review – Down Independence Boulevard and other stories

I found out about this book by Ken Puddicombe on Rosaliene Bacchus’ blog – Three Worlds One Vision. Read her fantastic review of this book – Down Independence Boulevard and Other Stories by Ken Puddicombe.  I wanted to read this book since its based in Guyana and the steady […]
