A Book Of Brainless Thought

Author : Samir Samuel David

Pages : 66

Publisher : Himanshu Publications


Synopsis…..

The queue was getting shorter and I too was getting closer to a something, it was a Big Cloud, a Hazy one. Everyone was calling this cloud with a name, as they were coming closer to it. I wasn’t able to hear it clear from a distance, but as I reached pretty close, I heard the name, ” GOD “; yes God was what I heard. The Small Hazy Clouds were calling this Huge Hazy Cloud as GOD. What is this GOD!! I kept thinking as I was moving closer to it.

My turn came and I was in front of it. The first thing I said to it was GOD!! And to this it replied “ yes son “. I was so surprised, frightened and nervous, as I wasn’t able to understand the reason for which I called it GOD? May be it was some automated command fed into all of us.

Then this God showed me a ” Golden Gate ” just behind it. It was this huge gate, with beautiful carved images on it, as if telling a story about someone or something. God bent down to its knees and started telling me, or I would say started giving me a series of instructions.


My review

This book is all about a set of situations that we live each day. The author Mr Samir Samuel David had shared his experiences, his appreciation and his opinion about life.

Starting from chapter 1 on humanism to the last chapter of this book, he shared his true opinion about life. Reading this book was quite interesting because I am always eager to know about others true opinions and experiences about life.

I would give this book 5/5 stars, the language used was easy to understand and moreover the author has shared beautiful pictures. I completed reading this within 2 hours.

You guys can get your copy from Amazon.

The Arranged Love Marriage…

Title : The Arranged Love Marriage

Author : Safina Khan Soudagar

Pages : 252

Publishers : Broadway Publishing House


SYNOPSIS

‘Miss, are you alright?’

That voice… Her tummy fluttered and her eyes flew open to clash with the deepest grey eyes ever. The buzzing of the phone stopped, and so did her heart.

Saphira Varma, at twenty seven is well-established in her dream company and is happily single until her parent’s wish for her to settle turns her world upside down. Her heart is locked away, but a loveless marriage to a stranger might be just the thing to placate her parents. But as her past questions her present and threatens her future, she is uncertain. Will Shaphira find the lost key?

If you’re a challenge woman… I certainly accept.

A business minded Sameer Malhotra hadn’t expected for an arranged marriage to land up on his to-do list. But he finds himself agreeing to just that. A girl of his parent’s choice might bring him happiness. He wasn’t sure until, he found himself feeling for a woman who was captivating and left him curious. Will Saphira’s past make this a one sided love? Not if Sameer can help it. There will be a marriage, the question is, ‘What kind?’


MY REVIEW

Thanks Safina for writing this beautiful love story of Saphira & Sameer.

To be true I fell in love with this story and it’s people.

Saphira Verma, at twenty seven is well established Fashion Consultant, who doesn’t want to get married, until her parent’s wish for her to settle.

Sameer Malhotra, at thirty one is well established Hotelier, who agreed to get married to the girl of his parent’s choice, and later found himself feeling for Saphira who was captivating & left him curious. But he doesn’t let Saphira to know about his feelings because he doesn’t want to lose her.

Saphira agreed for the marriage because she doesn’t want to fall in love and considered marrying Sameer as a safe option.

This story is all about love, friendship & heart break. The title of the novel is suitable to the novel. The language is quite simple and easy. Even the characters will make you fall in love with them (to be true I love Saphira & her bff Ella)

Thank you
