Indira - India's Most Powerful Prime Minister - Sagarika Ghose - Book Review

Plenty of books have been written on Indira Gandhi, one of the most powerful and ambitious politicians modern India has witnessed. Veteran journalist, Sagarika Ghose in her attempt at another biography scripts an interesting tale of the former Prime Minister. Born to an illustrious family, Indira Gandhi no doubt had an eventful life and an eventful career as a politician. The book comes across a well researched,detailed text on Mrs. Gandhi's time and life. The chapters have an addition in forms of open letters kinda concept wherein the author pens a letter to the late leader, perhaps in hopes of better questions and answers, relevant to those periods of time. Publisher - Juggernaut Genre - Biography/History Price - Rs. 499 Pages - 342

This one is a guidebook for people dealing with heartbreak. Dr. Shyam Bhat explores this seemingly significant issue effecting mental health of so many around us. While we keep giving or receiving random gyan on the subject, Dr. Bhat brings in professional expertise and years of experience as a practicing psychiatrist to answer some important questions about heartbreak.

It gives us a level of wisdom and understanding to realize what the other person is going through. Price - 250 Genre - Self Help/Non-Fiction

Friday Musings - Of Betrayals and Disappointments

Its been a while since I last blogged and readers have been inquiring as to whats happening. I last posted here in September, but their had been trouble in life since August. Things peaked up in October and are finally setting down.  This time has given me more space to introspect as to how easy it is for people to disappoint you. You sometimes don't even expect anything great out of them, and it turns out that they still manage to disappoint you. With their negativism, insecurities, they still manage to scratch your soul and try to harm your inner peace. I have long believed that its during time such as these you see the real faces of people around you. How many would be happy to be at your side and how many will jump ship, gives you a clarity of what is happening around you. I seldom expect from people. Humans have a predictable tendency to betray and be thankless for what they gain. I am a positive person who portrays an awful indifference to abuse or hurt.
