mr darcy

 I have faults enough, but they are not, I hope, of understanding. My temper I dare not vouch for. It is, I believe, too little yielding—certainly too little for the convenience of the world. I cannot forget the follies and vices of others so soon as I ought, nor their offenses against myself. My feelings are not puffed about with every attempt to move them. My temper would perhaps be called resentful. My good opinion once lost, is lost forever."



- Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice were written by Jane Austen

Modern Hindi Short Stories foreword by Bhisham Sahni | Book Review

 When a society changes, it is the people who bear the weight of it the most. This book brings together stories from people’s lives, as they carried on their cultural legacy, weaving it with modernity and growth.

Handpicked gems of stories by veterans in the genre of the short stories– such as Amarkant, Bhisham Sahni, Kamleshwar, Nirmal Varma, and Mohan Rakesh – have been combined with works of younger writers who became the torch-bearers of the forward movement of the people.

Of special interest are the works of women writers such as Krishna Sobti and Mannu Bhandari, who made sure that women were heard and read – loud and clear.

A collector’s delight, MODERN HINDI SHORT STORIES, spans almost half a century of literary endeavor in the field of Hindi fiction – a period of intense literary activity, varied in its approach and wide in its scope.

ease

Yes, failures echoes in my ear.
The essence of losing everything and
sometimes everyone.
It occurs to me sometimes that
I cannot do that.
But through the other times, I
know I am really good at being
myself,
and that is where I regain control.

The King of Minear's Son by R. J. Passer | Book Review

Prince Taelor Pevrel believes he is an only child until, at the age of twenty-two, he meets his half-sister, Alene, who just learned the story of her true parentage. She arrives in the kingdom of Minear to meet her father, King Naelor, and to connect with her newly discovered family. Taelor and Alene form an immediate bond with each other. However, King Naelor, cold and proud, take a whole different attitude towards Alene, considering her a threat to the future of the Pevrel dynasty.

Determined not to let Alene have a claim to his throne, Naelor attempts to assassinate her. When Taelor surmises that his father was behind the heinous act, tragic events ensue which leads him to forsake his title and to flee Minear. Accompanying him on his journey are his loyal servant, Leygon, and a cheeky knight, Lance. They face a variety of obstacles on their travels and have a fateful encounter with a group of witches who chant a spine-tingling prophecy that will haunt Taelor for the rest of his days.

The plot was a slow-burn kind of one, full of mystery & enough spice of adventure to keep you on the edge of your seat—the rest of it did that actually as well. The dramatic plot is one of the key essences of the novel.

The Godchild by Jymi Cliche' | Book Review

The author Jymi Cliche is an artist, a writer, a rapper, and a photographer. He feels like he was targeted at birth and that he is in the center of a giant conspiracy. Those beliefs got even stronger on 9/11 which was his 23rd birthday and a day he predicted would be bad ten years in advance.

This is a look inside his mind and how he came to believe in himself and the idea that he may really be "The Godchild." It is part memoir/part psychological thriller.

Marigold - the golden memories by Manali Debroy | Book Review

Marilyn Monroe once said, "I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes. I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best," and I couldn't agree more.

Life is like a paradox of love and pain that may never leave each other, but in the end, the coexistence is worth the journey. Striving for the best is human nature, but are you really prepared for the roller-coaster rides or do you give up?

In the book Marigold - the Golden Memories, the author Manali Debroy has crafted 18 short stories. Each story is unique in its own way. There are stories of love, relationships, dreams, hope, and ambitions. The author has penned all of them very beautifully.
