Antara has never understood her mother Tara's decisions - walking out on her marriage to follow a guru, living on the streets like a beggar, shacking up with an unknown artist, rebelling against society's expectations ... But when Tara starts losing her memory, Antara searches for a way to make peace with their shared past, a past that haunts them both.

As she relives her childhood in Pune in the eighties, the time she spent at a Catholic boarding school in the hills of Maharashtra, and her years as a young artist in Bombay, Antara comes up against her own fears and neuroses, realizing she might not be so different from Tara after all.



Girl in White Cotton is a journey into shifting memories, altering identities, and the subjective nature of truth. Tracing the fragile line between familial devotion and deception.

'it feels unfair that she can put away the past from her mind while I’m brimming with it all the time.’

After hearing a lot about this book, I had to give it a read. It is a kind of book that stays with you for a long time even you are done reading it. The writing has been done exceptionally well by @avnidoshi, it is a masterpiece! And I know for sure that is going to be one of the books that re-read a lot.

A Dream To Die For

 In Riverton Falls, a small New England town, globe-trotting bartender Celeste Fortune stands in her kitchen puzzling over last night’s frightening dream—a woman at a window, lilacs blowing in the breeze, someone’s hands tight around her neck. Celeste is sure the dream belongs to someone else. Perhaps she has finally broken through to the collective dreams of the Dreamland cult. Hoping her therapist and cult leader will help her untangle it, she heads off into the cold November morning to her final appointment with him—or so she hopes. Her estranged fiancΓ© has delivered an ultimatum: Leave the cult of Dreamers, or end their relationship for good.


Instead of help, however, Celeste discovers her therapist dying in a pool of blood, skull stove in by his own healing crystal. His computer, containing the intimate dreams and secrets of half the town, is gone. Suspicion immediately falls on Celeste, known to be a rebellious member of his cult. To clear her name, Celeste enlists the help of her old friend, Gloria. But when the two women discover the power of the stolen dreams, they unwittingly become the killer’s next target.

"It's much easier to not know things sometimes. things change and friends leave. and life doesn't stop for anybody. I wanted to laugh. or maybe get mad. or maybe shrug at how strange everybody was, especially me. I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and then make the choice to share it with other people. you can't just sit there and put everybody's lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. you just can't. you have to do things. I'm going to do what I want to do. I'm going to be who I really am. and I'm going to figure out what that is. and we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn't do or what they didn't know. I don't know. I guess there could always be someone to blame. it's just different. maybe it's good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. because it's okay to feel things. I was really there. and that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite."⠀

adulting

Social media manager and popular blogger Aisha are flirty and flamboyant ... even as she battles personal demons that tell her she must stop eating if she wants to stay pretty.

Ruhi couldn't be more different from her friend Aisha. Working at Literacy Publishing, she feels grossly underappreciated by the editor-in-chief, who happens to be her mother. What keeps her going are her own ambitions - and her handsome author Tejas.


Bestselling novelist Tejas has a bad case of writer's block. He leans on Ruhi for emotional support before getting enamored by Aisha as he struggles to live up to everyone's expectations, including his own.

Bold and unapologetic, this is a story of love and self-discovery, heartache, and book launches.

This was a light and refreshing YA read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who's looking for something to read on the lazy weekend.

A Great Man Has Come Home

 A Great Man Has Come Home is the poignant and moving story of the final few years of Pa Otutu, during which he falls prey to an attempt to defraud him out of his home, along with an attempt made on his life by a so-called girlfriend.


Pa Otutu is a colorful and large-as-life character who has certainly lived a rich and varied life with his twenty-five known children and six wives, along with various concubines and girlfriends appearing along the way!

When this great man passes on, his family has to pull together to ensure he gets the send-off he deserves. However, things do not go according to plan, and it takes a lot of work and money to get this great man home to rest in peace.

A Great Man Has Come Home provides a fascinating insight into Nigerianfascinating and culture and shows some of the challenges that Nigeria faces.

The Archer

 In The Archer, we meet Tetsuya, a man once famous for his prodigious gift with a bow and arrow but who has since retired from public life, and the boy who comes searching for him. The boy has many questions, and in answering them Tetsuya illustrates the way of the bow and the tenets of a meaningful life. Paulo Coelho's story suggests that living without a connection between action and soul cannot fulfill, that a life constricted by fear of rejection or failure is not a life worth living. Instead, one must take risks, build courage, and embrace the unexpected journey fate has to offer.



With the wisdom, generosity, simplicity, and grace that have made him an international bestseller, Paulo Coelho provides the framework for a rewarding life: hard work, passion, purpose, thoughtfulness, the willingness to fail, and the urge to make a difference.

The book is written in a very simple way but the message that it gives is remarkable as always. I have learned so much while reading the book, will share the detailed review on my website soon.

 prayer is the soul's sincere desire. your desire is your prayer. it comes out of your deepest needs and it reveals the things you want in life.

- joseph murphy, the power of your subconscious mind

I was just going through the book today and came across this quote and I felt like I really needed to hear this because my mind was getting consumed in a lot of negative thoughts for the past couple of weeks. so I thought of sharing this here and if anybody might be going through the same experience can get some help after reading this.

Out of the blue




I hate this feeling. I hate it so much because it doesn't even feel like a feeling anymore; it just feels like who i am. I'm this broken human sitting on the floor in her basement. At this same moment, other people are probably having dinner, traveling with their loved ones, reading a great book, or laughing with their best friends. I bet they're all doing something amazing. But not me. Instead I'm curled up in a ball leaning against the bar in my basement, with my face in my hands. I can't stop crying. I can't control my breathing. I'm powerless against the whirlwind of negative thoughts and angry voices that are constantly assaulting me.

Was reading Lilly Singh's book and came across this paragraph. It's crazy how it reasonates with what I'm feeling right now.

 Enrolled in an Army hostel to study Law, Saba is torn between her duty towards her parents and her newfound freedom. To complicate matters, she has more suitors than she can handle. Who will she choose? The old crush? The college hotshot? Or the mysterious Lieutenant?


The book is well written using simple words, making it an easy read. The language has been very simple and lucid throughout the book. The title is simple yet perfect for the story, given what follows in the plot. The characters of the story are portrayed clearly and every character is finely justified to their respective roles throughout the book.

Indeed, the book is light-hearted and full of perfect observations that we all can relate to. It was a fun read and a quick read. It enraptures you and sails you into its own world.

If you are looking for a light read on a weekend or holidays, you should definitely read this book.

I have been obsessed with the evermore album ever since it's released. Marjorie is the song that is very close to my heart so it has to be my fav out of all of them. I really liked no body no crime, evermore and happiness and basically all of them. πŸ₯°

have you listened to the album yet? and if yes then which one is your favorite?

Also happy birthday @taylorswift! You're such an amazing and strong person and an inspiration to so many.πŸ’–

 Twenty years ago, Helen is forced to give up her newborn baby, Lily. Now living alone in her small flat, there is a knock at the door and her bee, her Lily, is standing in front of her.

Reuniting means the world to them both, but Lily has questions. Lots of them. Questions that Helen is unwilling to answer. In turn, Helen watches helplessly as her headstrong daughter launches from relationship to relationship, from kind Andrew, the father of her daughter, to violent Kingsley who fathers her son.

When it’s clear her grandbees are in danger, tangled up in her daughter’s damaging relationship, Helen must find the courage to step in, confronting the fears that haunt her the most.



Told in Helen’s quirky voice Helen and the Grandbees addresses matters of identity, race, and mental illness.

marjorie

 you’d always go past where our feet could touch

and I complained the whole way there

the car ride back and up the stairs

I should’ve asked you questions

I should’ve asked you how to be

asked you to write it down for me

should’ve kept every grocery store receipt

‘cause every scrap of you would be taken from me

watched as you signed your name Marjorie

all your closets of backlogged dreams

and how you left them all to me



Sweatpants are always an evergreen option no matter you are looking forward to joining the gym or yoga center. The fabric used in such leggings or pants is amazingly soft, incredibly light weighted, and super stretchy that is very beneficial in giving higher comfort to the wearer. And products to wear under your outfits without being noticed, to put tidy up your shapes and look slim at all times!

 Love, Friendship, Madness, Patriotism, and indifference all unravel as two people are forced to become unwilling allies in a high stakes game of cat and mouse played out in high mountain passes and deep valleys of Ladakh.

One must save his love, the other must save himself.

Tired of the same old white backdrop photos? A colorful background can make your photos pop and save them from looking dull. You can invest in great professional backdrops.

Trust



 a blessing is a curse if your not ready for it. trust the timing. trust the delay.



 Whether you are shooting people or products, the backdrop behind your subject can make or break your image. Cluttered backgrounds are distracting and draw attention away from your subject. And if you’re attempting to sell products online, a cluttered image may eliminate sales.

Versions

 


a book is a version of the world. if you do not like it, ignore it; or offer your own version in return.

–salman rushdie


If you are also a photography enthusiast and want to take photos full of retro flavor, brick wall photography I think the following photo is very suitable. The combination of garland and pumpkin reflects a warm atmosphere, with a feeling of a home against the brick grey wall. As if back to childhood.

it was too late

 


i wanted to tell you everything. and that hurt because some things were too scary. some things even i didn't understand. how could i tell someone--someone i was really talking to for the first time everything--i was thinking?

i couldn't. it was too soon.

or maybe it was too late.
