Shiva Trilogy

If you have interest in mythology, this book is perfect for you and if you don’t like mythology, storyline is enough for keeping you engaged. I am not a very big fan of Indian writers but Amish Tripathi has attempted something very different which makes me appreciate him even more. For people, who have not heard about Shiva trilogy, it consists of three books :

  1. The Immortals of Meluha
  2. The Secret of Nagas
  3.  The Oath of Vayuputras

This is a fictional story that portrays Lord Shiva in a normal human being form. King Daksha represent him as a Lord Neelkanth to his people in order to fulfil his personal gain but it turns out differently. As story proceeds, few secrets discloses to Shiva which leads to lots of twists and turns making this book more interesting. Other characters also woven in a manner that justify there name, for example Goddess Kali and Lord Ganesh, we all know they look differently but Amish know how to fit them in a story.

This book gives new definition to evil. It deals with saying that extreme good turns into extreme evil. Best part is no character in the book is either good or bad, they react as per the situation. I would say it is a must read.

Passion – Feeling which keeps you Alive

Well, passion is really a big word. Sometimes, we don’t understand the difference between hobby and passion.Passion involves interest, love and a bit of madness. It gives us tranquility.We never get tired while doing things for which we are passionate about.If you are passionate about something you would try to connect with it in any way. But sometimes circumstances don’t allow us to do this also.
Reading is my passion which is not lost completely, but I do not get much time to pursue it. I reached in different world while reading my favourite books.It helps me to forget my problems. Reading also give chance to learn few new things so I believe in saying that “Books are our best friend”.

The Books With Different Vision

There are books that tell a story. We read them, enjoy them and put them away, forgotten, in some shelf of the mind. But, once in a lifetime there comes a book that refuses to be forgotten, that stirs our mind and changes our thoughts forever. Here is a list of such kind of books that impacted my life :

1. Only Love is Real by Dr. Brian Wiess – When I picked this book, I had no clue about past life regression therapy. This book has changed my perception about life and relationships. It’s hard to believe in reincarnation theory, but this book has the power to change the mindset.

2. Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling – A book list without a Harry Potter name is incomplete. I have started worshiping J.K Rowling for her wide imagination.She has created a different world of magic and while reading book we started living in that world.

4. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho– This book needs no introduction. Every line of this book can be used as an inspirational quote. A story of transformation purely masterpiece.

5. Five Point Someone by Chetan Bhagat – This book can turn a non reader to a reader(I have some live examples ;)). Best part of this book is its all character, they sound realistic you can easily connect with them. This novel shows the loopholes in our education system. I think this is the best novel of Chetan Bhagat till date.

6. A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks – This book will touch your heart. Beautiful book with loveable characters. You will surely start liking Jamie for her kind-heartedness and Landon for his true love for Jamie.

7. I too had a Love Story by Ravinder Singh – Another heart touching love story and unfortunately true one.I bet that its ending can make anyone cry but still you will feel a positive. You will be touched by the writer’s honest words. This book is a Ravinder’s tribute to his true love.

9. Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson – The best description I have ever read about the changes. This book helps us to deal with the changes. Most of us don’t like change but as we know changes are an important part of life so its better to face it.

If its not forever its not love..

Recently I have read a book titled “If its not forever its not love” . I found the title very interesting main reason to pick this book .The story revolves around 6 characters Deb, Avantika, Shrey, Tiya, RD and Rangini.
Two love stories are going simultaneously, one in flash back written in the diary and other in the present day. Both stories are written in different styles it can be easily recognized that the two writers are involved.I found diary one more interesting as it reflects the eternal love without expectations. Avantika is a very strong character, although somewhere writer repeats her positive points again and again.

I want to jump to the last chapter to know the ending of the dairy story, but when I reached there found ending a bit filmy. All in all it is a good book to read one time.
