Blurb:

How far can one truly go away from his/her ancestral roots, filial ties and the claustrophobic grip of traditions and the reminiscence of an emotionally fraught childhood and puberty? The book begins with this particular quest, and it is this quest which gains momentum as a woman seeks the essence of herself-identity ten thousand miles away from her Bengali hometown. With the lens of a time-traveller, her narrative journey encompasses her first sexual abuse, her first tryst with death, austerity, the strangeness of rituals, the inexplicable feelings of puberty and also her surrendering to love, procreation, motherhood. In herself-chosen exile in the US, she discovers that deep within; her ancestral roots a real soothe well spring of her psychological, spiritual existence. In the process, she keeps on oscillating between assimilating and disintegrating, which forms the core of her journey.


Excerpt:

A Foolish Thing Was But A Toy

The living room has been swarming with the bodies of men, neighbors, relatives, acquaintances, sneaking into, playing cards, burning with the ashes of smoked cigars. These are the bodies which she has stumbled on, brushed aside in the threshold of womanhood that has unleashed the awareness of‘body’. The body, which has been abused, caressed, revered, gratified. The body which has been stalked by roaming eyes has been swept by awe while encountering other bodies, in a road that leads to delight and discovery. ‘Love’, the four-letter word, sweeping her off her feet in various phases, has turned the body into a dormant volcano, an evening sonata, a bird song.

In the beginning of knowing the body, knowing the blossoming of breasts, the ache and throb of growing up slaps hard at the stupor and confusion of childhood. The muffled sound of innocence fades and dies alongside drops of blood in the soapy bath water. Growing up has ever since been a venom of fierceness and beauty, a scribbled bliss in letters, scrapbooks and photographs.

In a child’s bubble, two decades after, the tiny shreds of a girlhood blow away in the dusky sky, blow away like alive poems, remembered wind. There it goes, a life lived in the naiveté of childhood, a life lived in the murky darkness of adulthood, a life lived like a taunting song of womanhood. There you see it form and breath. There you see it rip off like an old family album, drowning in a deep, abandoned well.

GuestPost: Why did Payal have marks on her if Chunni was tormenting her? to Rubina Ramesh

Greetings People !
We reviewed Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh, our Busy-bee & Founder of The Book Club at: Book Review: Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh
It will leave you mentally open-mouthed as you strive to find meaning and balance in our mundane life with the stories she has woven in this anthology.
Know more about the Book: Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh



I had a niggling doubt in the First chapter itself which was still wriggling in my mind after days, so I asked Rubina as a GuestPost question. Warning: The question and answer may be sort of Spoiler. So be warned before proceeding ahead ;)

Q: I have a doubt from 'A secret in their Closet' why did Payal have marks on her if Chunni was tormenting her? What does that mean? Who was the child abuser here?
A: Dear Nilima,
Thanks for this lovely question. Yes, it has spoiler alert but I don't mind. :)
The genre of horror has always fascinated me. Those small hints scattered all over the plot, leading a reader or a viewer, as the case might be, with subtlety, to unravel the big aha moment of chills and shivers. I wondered often if I would be able to do justice to the plot while penning a story with lots of twists and turns as this one was. When I started writing A Secret in their Closet, the first task was to create events which would make a reader wonder where it was leading to. Even for a panster, like me, these events had to be carefully planned.
Now Payal is actually the main character who is what we call the medium between the past and the present. The anchor on which both the past and the present latches on.
Now Payal was always having a dream. Her dream is described as,

 'It would be enough to start the flow of life within her. But these cruel hands were holding her down, smothering her. She tried to kick, bite, and scratch but they were very strong. She thought of going limp so that her muscles shrank; this might help her in releasing herself from the bondage."

The way Chunni dies later in the story and where her resting place is, they both justify the two facts about Payal having marks on her hand, which she gets when she feels the pain of Chunni trying to claw her way out of her grave. The same way it justifies the mud stains on her clothes.

There is no child abuser here, at least not in Payal's life. Till Anjali... ah well for that you have to read my book Knitted Tales. Thanks, Nilima, I loved the question.

All the best to Rubina for more books and ventures in Life :)

Book Review: Mary's Song by Susan Count

Greetings Book Lovers,
If you also love books about Horses, riding,... like me you are in for a treat when you pick Susan Count's Mary's Song.
Its our 2nd Book Tour with BeachBoundBooks and 1st book we are Reviewing for them and also of Susan Count. Glad we signed up :)
Know more about the book: Spotlight: Mary's Song by Susan Count



Story:
Mary is a gutsy 12year old girl whose legs wont support her after a virus hit her and her mother. Her mother didnt make it but she made sure Mary lived as her father needed a reason to life. So now Mary is all he has got and he is hell-bent on getting her cured and make her walk again after 8years.
Mary's only obsession and dream is Horses and to be able to ride and train them. Their neighbor has a horse farm owned by family whose daughter Laura is Mary's age. Mary has her heart set on a foal named Illusion. But sadly she comes to know Illusion has some defect in his leg and will be put down soon. Gutsy Mary ropes in Laura's help to save Illusion. They try to raise money for a surgery which may or may not work against the wishes and orders from their parents. Will Illusion be Mary's horse? Can Mary walk if not ride after all the treatments.?

What I liked :
Simple language and consistent flow of the plot.
The book is 100+ pages but packs a lot of things in it. Love, death, healing after a loved one passes away, gratitude, hope, perseverance, humor,...
All the characters are well developed Not just Mary or Laura but also Mrs.Tate or Mr. Todd,..
The banter among the girls is refreshing not at all childish or girly. In fact its matured.

The topics of death, heaven, pain,... are simply explained. I think thats why the book is marked in Category: Difficult topics. It can be read by older kids or younger kids with adults explaining further.
The horse or riding techniques/terminology was not overpowering infact adding to our knowledge.
It was a good change to read a book which didnt indulge adult topics that scar you or leave you feeling depressed.
I am eager to read the next book in the series and them to my Read-horse books list.

What I wanted more:
Nothing. It is a beautiful book. Congrats & All the best to Susan Count for more books.

Do buy a copy & enjoy it.

Bye. Take care.

Book Review: Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh

Greetings People !
Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh
Review of #KnittedTales by Rubina Ramesh.
I am always wary of reading Rubina's writing. Why? Coz I like to believe Life is beautiful and everything is Good in my world. But when I read any of Rubina's writing it is like:


 Like Sonia Roa says in Foreword of the Book: Rubina's writing has an amazing voice that is bright, fresh, vivacious and fearless. It drags you by the throat and doesn't let you go till you've had your fill. And then, leaves you craving for more.
Know more about the book: Spotlight: Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh

Story:
This book is Not Just Another Anthology. It is thought-provoking, makes you self-examine, disgust you or feel like a wave of love is washing over you.
I will not list out the 10 stories. You got to buy the Book, read it and store it as a Collector's prize.


Grab your copy @


What I liked:
The Mix. From spine chilling thrillers to the wolf-in-sheep-clothing type of people among st us to love stories to spiritually inclined to parenting to innocence spilling through words,....

A collection of Emotions as the Title says. Its a kaleidoscope. The way each character is described will make you part of their lives and accordingly make you feel disgusted with yourself or loved.

The length of each story is perfect. Each lingers in your mind and makes you go over it again & again. So take time out & savor each one patiently.

I cant word it anymore eloquently or in big words. You gotta read it to find out for yourself.

I am glad I bought my copy. If it comes out in print, I am getting that copy too & prefarably get it signed by Rubina. Rubina, are you listening? :)

What I wanted more:
I am surprised Rubina doesnt have dozens of books in her name still. Buck up lady & churn out many more from that treasure trove of brain of yours.
Good News ! Her next book 'Finding the Angel' is out on Amazon. On my next buying spree, going to get it in my books kitty.


Bye. Take care.

Spotlight: Shadowed Promise by Sunanda Chatterjee

Greetings People !
Lets get to know Sunanda Chatterjee latest book: Shadowed Promise in a Book Tour by The Book Club. Amazon Gift Cards to be won by playing the Rafflecopter :) Everyone loved Fighting for Tara, so I am eager to read this book and know more about Sunanda's writing.

The review will be coming up soon.


SHADOWED PROMISE
From riots in Bombay to the riches of Beverly hills...
by
Sunanda Chatterjee



Blurb

Moyna’s cousin panted at the doorway, heavy with child. “Who did this to you?” her father shouted. And Moyna knew that somehow she would be blamed for this unspeakable shame on the family. Her aunt blamed her for all the tragedies, from the death of Moyna’s own parents to the riots in Bombay. But, as her cousin lay dying of stab wounds, Moyna promised to protect the baby.

In a panic, eighteen-year-old Moyna made a hasty decision that would return to haunt her years later. 

Bullied as a child, Sameer wants to make the world a safer place.  He has spurned a cushy career in his father’s law firm for public service. Sameer is drawn to the mysterious Moyna when they meet in Los Angeles. The attraction seems mutual, but Moyna remains cautious and secretive about her past, insulating herself from love to protect others from her unlucky curse.

At the cusp of political victory, Sameer faces increasing gun violence and death threats leading to an FBI investigation. But his greatest challenge comes when a shadow from Moyna’s past threatens to destroy their future.

What hope do they have with the media hungering for a scandal?

A story of friendship, redemption, and forgiveness, “Shadowed Promise” is a journey from blind faith to triumphant love.


Read an excerpt of #SP here:


Sameer chased after Moyna as she opened the side-door to the stairwell. When the door nearly swung shut, he stuck in his foot and opened it again. She had already reached the landing, so he took the stairs two at a time. “Moyna, I wanted to say congratulations!”
Her face glowed in the cardinal and gold graduation gown. A low pony swung below the cap, the tassels of which hung at her cheek. She looked happy. She smiled at him, for a moment, without holding back. Her smile was dazzling in its brilliance. Why didn’t she smile more?
She said, “Was that all you wanted?”
He grinned. You have no idea what I want! “I was thinking… now that you’ve graduated, maybe we can take this to the next level.”
She stared at him. “Sameer, I have a lot of baggage. There are things about my past… I can never tell you.”
“I don’t care about the past. I want to know if there’s any hope of a future for us.”
She sighed, a sorrowful, regretful sigh that turned his heart cold, as if she had slapped him on his face. She would never let him into her heart. But she said, “You’ll never be satisfied with what I can offer.”
You’ve offered me nothing before! He put his arm around her waist and pulled her close. “As long as you’re giving me all you can offer. Moyna, you have no idea what you make me feel. Just be with me. With time, you’ll trust me enough to let me into that wonderful heart of yours.”
She stared with those hypnotic eyes. Her lip trembled a little. And he had no doubt she felt the same way. He drew her closer, held her face, and pressed his lips to hers, as her cap fell to the floor.
Her lips felt petal soft against his, her arms on his back felt like chains from which he never wanted freedom. His hands roved over her neck and back and came to rest on her hips. The smell of her perfume, her breath, the feel of her skin against his, intoxicated him.
Above and below them, footsteps of students echoed in the stairwell. He hungered for breath, but couldn’t let go. She seemed to melt in his arms as she clung to him, teasing his hair, and raking his back.
When she pulled away, he wondered what year it was.
She was panting.
He watched his reflection dance in her eyes and it felt so right. That’s all he wanted. Her image in his eyes, and his in hers. Nothing else mattered. “I … I think I’m in love with you.”
He felt her stiffen as she took a step back. Did I say something wrong? Her expression was inexplicable. Her lips trembled, her eyes moistened, and it seemed that every fiber of her body wanted to be with him.
And yet he heard her saying, “I can’t do this!” She turned away and darted down the corridor toward her room.
He chased after her and grabbed her wrist. “I don’t understand. Is there someone else?”
She whirled around to face him, eyes wild with panic. “What? Yes. Yes, there’s someone else!”
She tried to wrench her hand free, but he tightened his grip. “Who? Karan? How come I’ve never met him?”
She stopped struggling. “You’ll never understand. Please, Sameer, I can’t be with you. Walk away from me. For your own good. It’s best for both of us.”
“I don’t believe it.” He jabbed his finger at the stairwell. “Just a minute ago you were kissing me. Tell me it meant nothing to you!”
“Stop!”
He saw a sparkle of tears in her eyes and his face softened. “Moyna, look into my eyes and tell me you don’t love me.”
She didn’t say anything. He wrapped her into a powerful embrace and kissed her, tasting the tears on her cheeks. He shivered as her hands snaked below his arms and ran up his back, hooking around his shoulders; she clung to him, and their bodies molded into each other.
He felt the warmth of her breath, her skin, and her flesh, and knew he never wanted to be with anyone else. After a moment’s hesitation, she kissed him back, sending his head spinning.
He lifted her off her feet with ease and pinned her against the wall. She wrapped her arms around his neck and nipped at his lips, as his hand found her breast. Control was out of the question. The fire of that raw desire burnt any logic he had left. He wanted her as much as she wanted him.
And then she struggled out of his embrace. A sharp pain pierced through his numbed consciousness when she stamped on his shoe with her three inch heel. He winced and hopped on one foot.
Panting, she glared at him and scrubbed her mouth. Then she pushed against him with both her hands, her eyes brimming with angry tears. “You arrogant, presumptuous, selfish bastard! Just because you’ve never been refused anything in your life, you think you can go about taking what’s not yours.”
Confused, he frowned and took a step toward her as she backed into the wall. “But you’re mine, Moyna!”
She gave a scornful laugh. “Your wealth means nothing to me. Your beauty means nothing to me. You’ll never be like Karan. Karan was brave, noble and selfless. You’re nothing!”
Sameer stepped back, his mind in turmoil. She hates me. Her dalliance with him had been a farce. The last three years had been a lie. He rubbed his forehead, stunned. “Wh…”
She yelled in a shaking voice, “Do you hear me? You mean nothing to me! Leave me alone.”

He clenched his fists, turned on his heel, and walked away, his steps booming in the quiet corridor, as his future with her vanished into oblivion.

#TornadoGiveaway 3: Book 67: I Made a Booboo by Shivangi Sharma

Hello people !
A hilarious account of First time parents by Shivangi Sharma in  I Made a Booboo for #TornadoGiveaway 3 by The Book Club. I am curious to read this & compare notes ;)





Name of the book: I Made a Booboo

The Book:


Once upon a time there was a woman who used to sleep eight hours a day and laze around on weekends. Her clothes were mostly free of gross body fluids and her bag rarely had biscuit crumbs. Then she decided to have a baby. With books and the internet for friends - and a husband who answered commonsensically - she thought she had it all sorted. But then her baby arrived, and turned everything upside down! The baby made it his mission to present a new surprise every day. Mommy, after fighting hours of helplessness, came to learn that parenting was a lost battle. There was only one way to survive - keep calm, laugh on and write when the baby dozes. The result : I made a Booboo, a rollicking account of the trials, tribulations and occasional triumphs of a first-time mom. P.S: Everyone did live happily ever after (albeit only when the baby willed so).

The Story:


A romantic comedy that is funny, contemporary and sharp.

Misha is a make up artist who, after a series of mishaps and twists and turns, falls madly in love with Akshay who reciprocates her love with ardour. The only hitch in this perfect romance is her prospective sister-in-law who thinks Misha is everything a Bahu shouldn’t be: garrulous, geeky, gawky, gainfully employed (especially the last bit). The question is will Misha win Didi (and the Kha-Pee Panchayat) over with her Stepford Wife Act? Will she continue to be the poster child for the inherent evils of the Bahu Brigade? Or will she learn to ‘lau’ herself before the whole world and its wife can do the same?

The Story:


When Indus Publishers announces a short story competition, it affects the lives of the ensemble cast in unexpected ways. A jaded journalist, a bored housewife, a starry-eyed ambitious girl, an army colonel, an impoverished divorcee-all enter the competition for pressing reasons of their own. They emerge with only slightly deeper pockets than they had but far richer in experience. Social issues are explored in an engaging manner, entwined in the lives of the characters- this is indeed the way of life. The novel also promises an enchanting look at the diversity in India; the characters belong to different Indian states and embody the peculiarities of the people of that region. Equinox and its checkered characters step to music of their own; many readers will find that it resonates with their own inner music.
