The Kite Runner [Khaled Hosseini]

Akhilesh,had been telling about this book from past some time and last weekend he gave me a copy to read.I was reading half a dozen books at that time,but paused everything to start and finish
The kite runner, written by Khaled Hosseini. jan's recommendation on the reader's paradise about this book further fueled my interests,and today i decided to finish it off.Here is my version about the book.

Age factor - 17 and above [ You need some level of maturity to understand some contents which are too deep in emotions]

Genre - Autobiographical Novel

The book -
A simple plain story,[ After reading the first 50 pages,i was certain of the direction where the story will go and end] of a man,who has some guilt regarding his past,and his journey of redemption but what makes it stand apart is the narrative style of Khaled Hosseini.

To write something like this,for your first book,is an amazing effort.Also the story is rich in emotions,you can really feel the pain of the narrator at times.The use of farsi/urdu words,the abundance of essence of the Afghan way of living,their culture, their land,the way they live the impact of so civil wars on their society, all this make the book special, a good read. No use of discussing the plot in detail here,its a book everyone should read this 324 page book once in their life.

Gifting Ideas
I don't own a copy right now,you can always gift it to my collection :-) Anyways,this book should cost you around 300 rupees,if it fits in your budget,this book is a great gift for you friend,but do check the age criteria.Otherwise it has something for everyone.And the book is quite popular too.

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
