Demons In My Mind – Aashish Gupta

asmita reviews

A one-of-a-kind book, constructed on a detailed scrutiny of mind –human mind. The book talks about the power of a mind probing deep into the devilish character of the mind. The message of the book is the human mind should be in control else it can lead to disastrous result.

The author very creatively convinces that the book is all about spirituality in the beginning of the book. The story starts with an old man Dakshesh, who, on his bed ridden condition puts across his last wish – meeting the 3 monks.

It was believed since generations that these 3 monks help in the attaining salvation of nirvana and that Dakshesh, who was suffering from epilepsy, wanted to die without any pain.

The author has beautifully crafted the stories of Rizwan, Murli and Joseph focusing on each and every detail making you feel, a part of the scene.

Dakshesh expected…

My verdict :

The cover of the book is thrilling, designed absolutely well, connecting towards the plot and the story.

Language & Narration :

The language is very easy, connecting. The narration is really good, the author hasn’t dragged any situation. Its quick and thrilling.

My take on story :

The story is beautifully scripted, the twists and turns are unexpected, within the flip of few pages, you start analysing the plot slowly.

A story that revolves around 8 years back, the robbery, the rape that has happened. Though years have flew but the effect of the case has sharply pinned into Karman’s mind.
After eight long years, when he is waiting eagerly a parcel containing his favourite books to be delivered from Amazon, but when he gets in house. He finds his…

Author Ankit

Book – Double or Quits

Author – Shilpa Gupta

The first ever corporate story that did not bore me a tiny bit, I avoid book based on corporate background because the terms and tactics are something that isn’t easy for me to fathom. However ‘Double or Quits’ came just not as an exception but I understood too, the terminology and the working of market. So, I express the gratitude towards Author for making it easy for the readers like me.

Of New Book and New Life

Maliny Mohan

new-life-new-beginning-cover-photo-1It has become not much of a surprise that I disappear from this space for days or even months at a stretch. The situation or habit is so when it comes to many writers of this generation, with most of them pursuing writing as their passion/ solace, while seeking time to write down articles, short stories, novellas and even full fledged novels after sweating it out at their work place during a greater portion of the day. Kudos to their spirit!

Sadly, I find it extremely fetching a task to switch myself onto the writing mode after a long day at work. Most of my writing happens during the weekends or during short breaks between the courses I need to take up as part of my never ending medical journey. Not simply that, my social commitments too suffer an annoying lag when I am buried in the mutli facteted world…
