A trial marriage[M&B]

Thursday, May 22, 2008

On 11th May,i acquired, a very old book,of the famous Mills and Boons series. It was old and battered but bounded,by the previous owner,a library in Delhi.What struck me in this book was the bounding,and also the fact that this one is from the first published edition of this book i.e. year 1977. So am going to tell something about A trial marriage, written by Annie Mather.
Genre - Fiction,romance

Age Factor - Mills and boons series have several romantic novels which has content unsuitable for minors.This one, i will suggest, persons, above 16 years of age are well suited for this story.

The book
Age gap between two people,can have a strong impact on the relationship they share.Especially if they are courting. Rachel Lesley is 18 and the male protagonist, jake is around 20 years senior to her,and is divorced.This 188 page book,highlights this aspect of romance,and the problems and differences that are bound to occur due to a huge age gap.Its a nice introspection to this issue.
A nice read,although not the best M&B i have read so far. Die hard romantics,go for it.

Gifting ideas
Mills and boons for the past many decades has been a favorite romantic series of women all over the world.But i don't find any reason why men cant read it.Its just that men,prefer more adventure and thrill packed stuff and too much mushy romance not all can handle it.So if you thinking of gifting this book to a girl,chances are she will love it.M&B books generally are priced around 100 rupees.if you thinking about gifting this book to a male,just check, whether he is a soft romantic or not.Otherwise, this will sound crap to him. generally, one should stay away from gifting any M&B book to a male.

Thought for the day

"A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy." ~Edward P. Morgan
Happy Reading!!!

Career Impact in times of Corona Virus

In the last few days, as India comes to terms with Covid-19 and struggles with dealing with this pandemic, one question several people are asking me relates to its impact on their careers. Coronavirus is what you hear everywhere these days. Public distancing and lockdowns are being touted as effective preventive measures to limit its spread. The highly contagious virus has brought the entire global economy to its knees. In this environment, what happens to our careers? Feb-March-April is a period when several corporates roll out their annual appraisal. Salaries are hiked, promotions granted, and career advancements planned. This year, however, things look not so promising for anyone as companies brace for adverse effects on balance sheets and glaring losses due to prolonged disruptions in businesses. Here is what you need to do, confined in your homes to thrive your career -  1) Work from home - Don't just pretend to work. Get some real work done. When this is all
