My Take On ‘MAD MONEY JOURNEY’ By MEHRAB IRANI


‘In today’s day and age, managing money and finances is a thought that scares people from every walk of life from a college student to a working professional.’ Author Mehrab Irani presents ‘finance’ in an entertaining way to his readers in his book ‘Mad Money Journey’.
Finance could never get so gripping, if it were not described by means of fiction. It provides with an amazing insight on managing money.

The book unfolds itself on the protagonist’s journey on rediscovering himself, and in his way, rediscovering ‘finance’. Published by Jaico,’Mad Money Journey’ seeks to impart lessons on managing finances to people from all walks of life. Dubbed as finance fiction, the book sees the protagonist go on an adventure learning lessons of financial emancipation from all corners of the world.

Extremely informative. Unputdownable of a book. A good read, indeed.

MY REVIEW ON PRITAM BANERJEE’S DEBUTE NOVEL -‘I, ME & HER FOREVER’


picture 2
‘I ME & HER FOREVER’ by PRITAM BANNERJEE from SMRITI publishers, is yet another love story encircling school life.
The book portrays today’s adolescence and school life with utmost practicality. It narrates a tale of friendship, a tale of education, a tale of heart aches, a tale regrets, a tale of getting over, and a tale of love that lasts.

If you think the blurb is disappointing, read the book for a surprise.
Though not well-edited, over-prized and i daresay even monotonous at places, it will bring back memories for sure.
It got me nostalgic, and reminded me of the best days of my life.
Read this book for a trip to the days of adolescence that you’ve left far behind, in the course of life. 

REVIEW OF “SAHARA: THE UNTOLD STORY” BY TAMAL BANDHYPADHYAY


saharaHow would you react if you were sent a copy of the year’s most controversial and asked for a review of the same? Well, i was a little confused, a little tensed, and a lot more glad for being trusted upon with the responsibility.

The book, that details on the unheard stories of SAHARA INDIA PARIWAR (one of the largest business organisations around the globe), once banned, is relaunched with a disclaimer from Sahara India Pariwar, an excerpt from which reads : “The book portrays Sahara in bad light by attributing unfound facts and incidents to which we have objections. The book also overlooks, or at the best, just glances over, the contributions made by Sahara India Pariwar…” However, I find the disclaimer absurd and queer. For, the book is titled as “Sahara: The Untold Story” and is therefore supposed to bring out the “unfound facts” itself, to justify the title. Also, It’s entirely the personal discretion of the author, whether he will sing praises of the ‘already known’ success stories of Sahara, or he’ll dig out the truths and bring to light other relevant details that were unknown to people until today. 

The interview with Subrata Ray, the founder of Sahara, is interesting and engaging.
All your queries related to Sahara, will be answered by this book.

The subtle details on Subrata Ray’s life, and the Sahara India Pariwar’s policies and regulations will startle you. Tamal Bandhyopadhyay, as a journalist, has done a fine work in illuminating the dark corners of one of the largest business organisations around the globe.
Bandhyopadhyay’s writing skills have a queer fluidity that engrosses the reader. The subtlety of the element of sarcasm in the book, makes it an entertaining and wise read.

A must read. It will enhance your knowledge  on the  37-year old, India’s most ‘secretive’ and unlisted ‘conglomerate’, the Sahara India Pariwar and its chief Subrata Roy.

What would you do when you were in a dilemma that involved having to choose between your guilt conscience and your daughter? What makes a writer? How long can you balance the tussle between your guilt conscience and your requirements? How long can you keep running from the truth, and the inevitable? How do you react when time serves itself as your worst enemy? What would you chose if it was an option between ‘living the life you’ve always dreamt of’ and ‘digging up the past to correct things that you did wrong back then’ ?

REVIEW OF ‘FOUR CORNERS OF THE CIRCLE’ BY MOHIT JAIN AND AMITA SOOD


four-corners-of-the-circle-400x400-imadtfwyaadvefs2
‘FOUR CORNERS OF THE CIRCLE’ by Mohit Jain, is indeed a unique book. I say unique, because, i started it with the thought that it would be yet another monotonous educational book, that will go on and on about Business studies, and stuff. Being a science pursuer myself, i was surer that it wouldn’t really be of any help to me. However, i ended up the book with a complete change in ideas. I found it extremely helpful, and motivational.
Specifically, the personal experiences narrated, make it intriguing and help the readers relate to it.
The element of humor adds to the flavor. 
The title is intellectual, and the cover page is equally genius.
This book will teach you lessons you need to learn, and is an effective self-help.
Recommended to students who want an influencing and inspirational book to read.

REVIEW OF ‘DANCE TO THE 7 TUNES OF HAPPINESS’ BY NISHIT LAL


If you are confused regarding your future, and is presently on a low self-esteem, give this book a read. 
‘DANCE TO THE 7 TUNES OF SUCCESS’ is a self-help book, by NISHIT LAL, that will certainly help one in his/her self-development. It guides one and shows you the right way to success, taking care of the right practices, the right attitudes, and the right processes. It illuminates the 7 P’s necessary for one’s success, namely- passion, purpose, productivity, perception, possibilities, practice, and potential. 
This book will endow one with the wealth of thoughts, and make it’s contribution in enriching one’s personality.

However, the definition of success varies from people to people.. And for some people success could something so simple that, it wouldn’t require a purpose. And that, is where the book couldn’t serve it’s purpose.

The title is catchy, and gives one a hint of what the book is all about.
The cover page, is attractive and fantastical, indeed.

Do read, if you want something to motivate you and show you the right way to success.

REVIEW OF ‘I AM DEAD BUT MY HEART BEATS’ BY PRIYANK.


Every time i sit to write down a review for this book, i somehow lose all my words, and sit there clueless what to write.
Reviewing one’s story is one thing, and judging one’s life is a whole different thing. Who gives me the right to judge the author’s emotions? Who gives me the right to pass comments regarding the BITTER REALITY OF ONE’S LIFE? I sit and wonder, and finally, when i had almost given up on the idea of writing down a review for this book, i somehow recalled that i have been trusted with a responsibility, and that comes before any of my sentiments.

‘I AM DEAD BUT MY HEART BEATS’, offers a different subject to the readers. It  does not lecture readers on how mushy love can get, or how eternal and forever love is supposed to be. Rather, it goes about explaining the very essence of love- the hurdles, the obstacles, the difficulties life sets up with, and how only love can help us conquer it all. It narrates to the readers the spine-tingling real life tale of the writer, that brings tears to one’s eyes. Tears, because, nothing can give more pain than REALITY. The elements of practicality and reality are well explored through out the book.
The theme of “communal differences” itself leaves a massive impact on the readers. 
I was deeply moved by the second half of the story. 
Introduction of elements of practicality, like the account on the education system at the onset of the story, is indeed praise-worthy. 
The narration has scope for improvement, and the book would be an even more engrossing read, had it been edited thoroughly.
Nevertheless, as a debutante novelist, and as a narrator of his own story, Priyank didn’t dissapoint the readers at all.

However, they say, when you express your heart out, it is sure to touch the spectator’s (here : reader’s) heart. And that it sure did. It touched my soul.
The entirety of the book has so much to teach, that i’d recommend it to each one of us, INDIANS; it will help you know your country better.
