Kalki Krishnamurthy’s Ponniyin Selvan is a masterpiece that has enthralled generations of Tamil readers.

Excerpt


“I have brought important information for all of you. That’s why I asked the noble Sambuverayar to invite us all here. Maharaja Sundara Chola’s health has been steadily deteriorating. I secretly asked our royal physician, and he says that there is absolutely no chance of his health improving. His days are numbered. And it is up to us, to think about the future of the royal throne.”
 
“What do the astrologers say?” asked one of the noble men.
 
“Why ask the astrologers? Haven’t you seen the comet that has been appearing in the sky, for the past few weeks? They say whenever a comet appears, there will be death in the royal family,” said another.
 
“I have asked the astrologers as well, and they say that the king might live for some more time. Anyway, we will have to decide who should ascend the throne next,” said Pazhuvetarayar.
 
“What is the use of discussing that now? Aditya Karikalan was made the Crown Prince two years ago,” said one of the noblemen.
 
“True. But before he took that decision, did Sundara Chola consult any of us? We all have stood by the Chola Kingdom with loyalty and have sacrificed our sons and grandsons in the battlefield. Even now warriors from each of our clans have gone to Elangai to fight for the Chola Kingdom. Don’t you think we deserve the right to be consulted about who should be the next heir to the throne? Even King Dasaratha asked his council of ministers, before deciding to crown Rama. But our Sundara Chola didn’t think it necessary to consult anyone…”

Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. 
 
Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine.

Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.

Book Review of The Fragrance of Rose

The Fragrance of Rose by Chirajit Paul is a romantic thriller that takes you to a roller coaster ride of events, situations that affects the life of Rinita Bose. It can also be called as an inspirational journey as the protagonist never lose hope. She keeps on moving with new hopes.

41wR6t8ASkL       51eHZSnwrmL

Cover: The front cover is mind blowing and makes you fall in love instantly. The colour scheme is vibrant and those who judge the book by its cover, this book is the perfect choice. The Rose in the cover is a symbolic figure as it signifies fragrance, love but also reminds us of the thorns it has which signifies betrayal, pain, suffering. The back cover has a blurb and author’s bio in it which seems just apt.

Title: The title is mind blowing. The Fragrance of Rose signifies all the good happenings. Whereas the subtitle Beauty. Diginity.Ambition talks about the desires, self respect and the beauty of the protagonist which are beautifully structured in the novel. Hence, the title and the subtitle gives us a lot of information in key words.

Blurb: Rinita Bose is an ordinary middle class girl with extraordinary beauty and unmatched aspirations. While chasing her dreams, she comes face to face with harsh realities. That’s how she learns the valuable lesson – what most men really want. In a twist of fate, she picks up enmity with a powerful man and flees the city. She switches careers and hides her identity behind the garb of Rose to make a place in Bollywood. She earns money, fame, adulation and success. But love eludes her. She witnesses the darkness of life in a drunkard father, a lecherous boss, a scheming producer and a friend who wants to take advantage. But then there are those that she can rely on in the worst of situations, her friends from childhood who stand by her through thick and thin. Those who don’t judge her; just love her unconditionally. Will Rinita be able to find the love she craves for? Or will she be mercilessly crushed for The Fragrance of Rose.

I picked up this book because of the cover and the blurb. The blurb is so powerful that it has sudden pull that makes you want to read the story. A book is incomplete without a strong blurb that gives us an insight of the plot sequence and I am glad to say that the author has done a fantastic job in it.

Plot Structure : The book is divided into three parts where the author has artistically delineated the life story of Rinita Bose, the protagonist, who has beauty with brains. This book talks about her life struggle with different men where some were leacherous, schemy, worst to her while there also lies her friends who are always there with her in her thick n thin. Life seems like a cakewalk infront of her in the start but when she refuses to fulfil the leacherous needs, she has to pay a heavy price. The plot is strong and surely a movie material. If it gets converted into movie, the audience will love it.

Characterisation: The author seems to have mastered the skills of characterisation. Rinita’s character is simple as well as complex. It is hard to understand her dreams, desires and her actions. Sometimes she sounds so bold while at other times she sounds the weakest. In all this while she has two friends who never leave her sight. Everytime she falls, she comes up with a bangon. There are so many variations in her character.

STyle: The language conveyed in this book is lucid and condensed. The way the author has expressed his thoughts using flashback team of narration. There is not one narrator but many. We come to know in the end at the hospital scene when notice everyone narrating their side stories in form of letters. The use of epistolar style of writing along with different perspectives gives us flavours. This book is a must read and I am sure you will want to see this book turned into a high voltage drama thriller.

Book Review of Super Couples

Super Couples by Prachi Garg is a non fiction book that talks about the stories of entrepreneurs who are couples.

51CrjsJoeZL

Cover and Title: I really loved the simple and elegant cover that serves the purpose of the book. Further, the way the author has chosen the title, it makes it meaningful. For me both are perfect.

Sneak Peak:In an era booming with the ‘Start-up’ trend and loving this new attitude of breaking boundaries and conventions of a career, one also faces the challenge of being able to partner up with the right people. In lieu of reliable and trustworthy partners, real life couples in relationships have started exploring the idea of partnering up in business too!
Speaking to various couple-preneurs, one realizes that the myth about mixing work and home is just as misty as the one about needing a stable and conventional job for an ambitious career. These dynamic start-ups break stereotypes and cover a varied range of services: ecommerce, innovative gifts, eco-friendly products, health care solutions, social responsibility ventures, event management, digital
solutions and many others.
SuperCouples brings out such lovely stories of enterprising couples. After all, when great minds come together to produce something built on conjoined dreams, the result is eminently successful.

About The Book

This book has some success stories of people from various fields who have shared their live’s struggles. Some of them talked about their love for art, food, technology and many other fields. This book is inspirational and it gives us courage to start something with our loved ones or partners. Life becomes easy when your life partner is your business partner as well. The author has done a lot of reasearch work and the couples are form various departments, fields, backgrounds.

The book is written in a simple yet powerful way.The way the author has engaged us till the end is mind blowing. I would say, instead of author, the stories of couples kept us hooked. This book is nowhere related to fiction and it involves common people who created their name in a unique way. This collection surely makes us love the stories as well as the author.

Book Review of Key To My Soul

Key To My Soul is a heart touching novel by Probal Mazumdar. This book talks about love, betrayal, social issues and even it has glimpse of flashback technique blended with epistolary style of writing.

81iU6lUyUSL

 

Cover and Title: The cover is simple yet elegant and it symbolises the thoughts of sepration and reunion. Further, Key To My Soul is again symbolic title as the literal meaning is something else. It is not exactly about a key but indirectly about a key of love.

Blurb: “When Siddharth, a lonely young man with a failed marriage gets a sudden phone-call from a mysterious person about his lost childhood lover, Hazel and learns that she is battling for life, he is shaken to the core. He also learns that she had left certain letters for him fifteen years back that never reached him. It disturbs him so much that he rushes to the hospital in his old hometown. There he discovers an eclipsed past buried in time that is riddled with dangerous surprises, trauma, twists of fate, sacrifices that exemplify true love and the real reasons for the tragic end of their childhood love story. But will Hazel ever open her eyes to see him..

Plot: The plot is intriguing and it grabs the attention of the readers. The story is about Hazel and Siddharth who beautifully carry the story forward. This is their story but fate has some other plans for them. They are meant for each other but gets separated by destiny and even by people. The best part is, it is not like those teen love fictions. The emotions are so strong that it binds your soul till the end.

Characterisation: The author seems to have mastered the skill of constructing complicated characters. I feel every character I came across had their own story, struggles and battles to handle. Hazel and Siddarth are the protagonists. With passage of time or say with every new page, I could find new colours in their characters. Their strong love is challenged and the way after so many struggles they handle their life.

Style: The style of writing is simple and the language is easy to comprehend. The flashbacks and epistolar styles add flavours to the book. The beautiful poem in the end makes your cry for these lovers. At times, we are in thoughts likewhat if she had reacted this way or what if they had told about it? So many questions hover over my mind. But I really loved this book. This book is a must read.

Book Review of You Raise Me Up

You Raise Me Up by Arjun Hemmady is Leadstart Publishing book. In this book, the author has expressed his thoughts in a way too simple way.

you

Blurb : Aalok Sharma, a 27-year-old, chartered accountant, meets the vivacious and beautiful Priyanka Mehra, on a flight from Delhi to Mumbai. They are instantly attracted to each other, though completely opposite in nature. However, something is holding Aalok back. Will this thing throw a spanner in his love story? Or will he be able to overcome his demons?

Cover and Title: The cover is again simple and doesn’t convey much. Maybe it suits the theme but it fails to grab attention of the readers, so those who judge the book by its cover, might not like it. The title is YOu Raise ME Up. It surely gives us no idea to what the author wants to convey so here, the readers want to grab this fat book and read it.

Plot : Again the plot is easy to predict and it revolves around Aalok Sharma and Priyanka Mehra. They happens to be from different backgrounds and cross their paths on a journey. Something click between them but the dark past of Aalok stops him back to make any move. This book about that dark past and how these too realise each other’s worth.

Remarks: The blurb is simple and I feel it could have been presented in a more innovative way. Coming to the plot, it reminds me of a situation of Aniket and Nidhi from Preeti Shenoy’s It’s All in the Planets. The way Arjun’s characters meet are just way too relatable to Preeti’s characters. Further, the predictability of the book makes it a turn off. I really liked the way the characters are delineated. The structure of the novel into three parts makes it quick and easy read. The writing style is again simple and condensed. I feel that surprise element seems missing in the book. The book could have been much better as it had that spark in it.
