Book Review- Destiny of Shattered Dreams by Nilesh Rathod

Book Review- Destiny of Shattered Dreams by Nilesh Rathod

Your client must go to jail tonight, the judge said, as he picked up his pen to formalise the pronouncement cancelling Atul’s bail. Atul’s heart skipped a beat, the blood rushing about in anguish as he sank down on his chair, discredited and shamed. Atul hadn’t been as prepared for this; so when reality struck, it did so with a paralyzing force. The above are opening lines of ‘Destiny of Shattered Dreams by Nilesh Rathod. These opening lines lure us into the…

The following are some lovely quotes from her book In seeking the truth, we define ourselves. In finding the truth we discover ourselves.   Observe reactions and behaviours Living in nature with full conscience Is living with and in God.   Sometimes making that last leap of…

Golden Oriole

Golden Oriole

A beautiful, coloured bird with striking yellow and jet black plumage and fully black wings was perched on the tree outside my window sill. It had camouflaged so effectively amongst the leaves that it is hard to spot. It has this song that alerts everyone around and can be heard over considerable distances.   The female of the species has dull-looking slightly greener colour. They have dark red eyes and a fairly thick, pink beak that is curved downwards at the end. It…

Power of NOW

Power of NOW

I recently came across this book, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle as I was going through my book collections. The book is enlightening. It is beautifully written. Eckhart Tolle introduces us with his story. A story of early depression and despair that resulted in a wonderful experience of awakening one night not long after his birthday. Here is what he states: I opened my eyes. The first light of dawn was filtering through the…

There were cancer groups she met during this time. She stated that you need to have positivity and inner strength during these times. Teachings of Buddha have helped her too on…

The Hungry Tide

The Hungry Tide

A standout amongst the most excellent books, I’ve ever read. In the event that there’s any individual who can paint a photo with dialect, it’s Amitav Ghosh. Each page makes you encounter an uncommon situation; you’re discovered between needing to clutch each word and the avidness to dive more profound into the story.   The Hungry Tide brings out the magical universe of the Sundarbans exceptionally well. It is set amongst the little, poor and confined groups of the Sundarbans,…

The writer begins with his own personal experience and how he has travelled around the world living a…

In the company of crows and ravens

In the company of crows and ravens

The book I have read recently is ‘In the Company of Crows and Ravens’ written by John Marzluff, Tony Angell, Paul R. Ehrlich is quite interesting. As Laurence A. Marshall states that “If corvids could read … they would surely find this book as entertaining and instructive as this human does”. The book focuses on the influences of people on crows’ lives throughout history and how crows have transformed human lives considerably.   The book has excellent sketches and some…
