Creme avoine

 


Creme avoine is a natural moisturiser for indulging the skin with intense moisturization. This cream is enriched with colloidal oatmeal, sodium pca and other rich emollients that hydrate, soothe and repair the skin. The non-greasy formula gets absorbed quickly and provides intense moisturization.


It does not contain paraffin, parabens, formaldehyde donors and silicones.


I've used this product for couple of months now. When i apply it to the skin just soaks it up. I love the mild scent that it has, how quickly it absorbs, that it does not make my skin look oily, and it truly feels calming. It doesn't irritate my skin and it's very calming to your skin.



It is available for INR 299 on @aveil , Amazon and Flipkart.

Daughters of Char Chinar

 In a land where beauty is a curse, Nafisa and Meher, identical twins of spellbinding beauty, are hidden away from the gaze of men by their slain mother’s relatives. Their powerful father Kazi had abandoned them at birth. Poor and unguarded, the sisters build a secret world of their own, educating themselves and even finding like-minded suitors in a land where love is forbidden...



But when the need arises, their father returns to reclaim them.

He has killed a man. The Jirga Council demands a virgin to atone for his crime. Kazi abducts Nafisa and gives her to the wronged tribe as compensation. Their leader wrenches off her burqa, loosening a torrent of red-gold hair. How unusual! His followers are aroused beyond bearing. Nafisa quakes with terror. They can hardly wait for her ritual ‘punishment’ to commence...

Will Nafisa succumb to their brutal attack? Or will she live on to fight alongside her sister Meher, for the upliftment of the daughters of Char Chinar?

Daughters of Char Chinar is a bitter-sweet tale of redemption based on the harrowing justice systems that still prevail in parts of South Asia. Here, rape is a punishment and not a crime.

kindred spirits

 


it was a pretty good strategy for most social situations: show up, fall back, let somebody else break the ice and take the spotlight. Somebody else always would. extroverts were nothing if not dependable.

A Pleasant Escape

When Alok Shirke decided to prepare for the mother-of-all-exams – UPSC Civil Service – little did he know that the journey would turn out to be much more than just books and classes.

He moves from the comfort of his home to the crowded lanes of Old Rajinder Nagar.

A chance encounter with Sarah seems like destiny’s compensation for all his hard work. He also meets buddies for a lifetime. Their life-stories of love, regret, friendship, and shattered dreams take him through Kashmir and Turkey; from brothels to hospitals; and from dingy quarters to the hallowed halls of UPSC.

When life finally seems to be coming back on track, he stumbles upon a truth that is bound to change him and the rest of his life.



Will Alok crack the exam, or will he be just one of the many soon-forgotten aspirants? Will a strange revelation make him see his life as A Pleasant Escape?

The language used in the book is simple and easy to understand. This was a quick and motivational read that can be read in a sitting and I would re-read it someday for sure.

A Life Of My Own

Shweta is pregnant after years of issues with infertility. Her husband, Rahul, and his parents force her to consult a doctor who will illegally reveal the gender of the child. When Rahul finds out their child’s gender, Shweta faces a harsh choice–should she save her marriage or her child? Meanwhile, the unborn child hears a voice resonate within.

She asks–who are you? Child, I am God, comes the reply, and a conversation begins.

With elements of magical realism, this poignant novel is an unflinching portrayal of a woman’s innermost struggles in her journey to break free.



The author has done such an amazing job in writing this book. It was very realistic and I found it relatable as well. It was an engaging read and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a good read.

Govindram Seksaria

 This is a riveting account of the life and work of the Govindram Seksaria ‒ industrialist, philanthropist, and a member of the New York Cotton Exchange ‒ and ties together several strands of a seminal period in Indian and World history. Seksaria lived in a historically defining era, his life straddling epochal events: two world wars, the Great Depression in the United States, India's freedom struggle against the British Raj, and the growth of Indian industry.



Seksaria, who was born in a family of small traders, never traveled abroad and spoke neither English nor Hindi ‒ only Marwari and was at the time of his passing, at age 58, one India's wealthiest businessmen. He donated liberally to the freedom movement and built not only an industrial and trading empire but also hospitals and educational institutions as well. He pioneered girls' education in an era when few others did.

He commanded a large following among industrialists, politicians, traders, and friends. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, and Mahatma Gandhi, at different times, sought his sage advice. Throughout his extraordinary life in business and philanthropy, Seksaria never gave a press interview or delivered a public speech.

Yours, Anne

 Dearest Kitty,

Saturday, February 12, 1944



The sun is shining, the sky is deep blue, there’s a magnificent breeze, and I’m longing–really longing–for everything: conversation, freedom, friends, being alone. I long…to cry! I feel as if I were about to explode. I know crying would help, but I can’t cry. I’m restless. I walk from one room to another, breathe through the crack in the window frame, feel my heart beating as if to say, “Fulfill my longing at last…”.

I think spring is inside me. I feel spring awakening, I feel it in my entire body and soul. I have to force myself to act normally. I’m in a state of utter confusion, don’t know what to read, what to write, what to do. I only know that I’m longing for something…

Yours, Anne

In Search of Lost Life

 A teenage Anita fights with her first wave of infatuation, a grownup girl goes through crests and troughs of her various firsts, a married woman struggles with the meanderings of her mind at various stages of her married life, a love story told from a child observer's perspective and a story of a man's yearning to feel his roots in another part of the globe, in another world.



Mundane details of ordinary lives and the darker recesses of the minds of these marginalized characters are played with strokes of myriad colors to bring forth the strangeness, unpredictability, and adventure that life holds for all of us.


In Search of Lost Life is a collection of tales of broken hearts, unstable minds, lust, and love. These narratives are woven around characters caught in webs created by their minds and the struggle to fit into the societal norms.
