HOW SHOULD WE WRITE?

When people said the pen is mightier than the sword, we might have thought how untrue it was. Not all of us who write get noticed and what changes can it make? We might not know.  A revolution starts small. Starts with one and moves through the crowd. With writing it is just the same….

Book Review: The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak

  Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak is one of the insightful books I’ve ever read. As misleading as the title can be it is not centered around the love we presume but the relation to love in every element of our life. It gives us the connect with Rumi, the greatest poet and how…

Book Review : Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, is one of the slow-paced books I’ve ever read. The whole plot is gloomy and sadistic, which makes the reader saturated beyond a point. This is definitely not one of your “I cannot keep it away” kind of books. The book starts with the hardships faced by Jane Eyre since…
