The looming water crisis, that not many people are worried about, made me revamp this blog post – an essay that I had written quite a while ago. Wake up, people! It’s getting serious, and we need to help!
It was in early 2018 that I discovered someone who loved books and told stories through pictures of books. And I couldn’t believe my eyes.

The world is no stranger to medical rom-coms despite us having a rather rigid perspective when it comes to doctors. While over in America, Scrubs was and still is a classic, India had Sanjeevani and Dill Mill Gaye, with the former considered to be more popular. But we hardly have had any books that talked about the light-hearted shenanigans that go on in doctors’ lives.
This happened more than 3 years ago when thoughts of marketing and promotions for my book, Of Knights and Lilies were taking up most of my time and thoughts. But there were also a few unwelcome questions that I had to unwillingly entertain. These were thanks to some incidents that clawed at my insides when I really didn’t want them to.

I had watched this movie long before I even considered picking the book. The book in turn, was a Raksha Bandhan gift from my big brother – a fact that he doesn’t know because I bought it after he gifted me cash.

But better late than never and better to have an overflowing bookshelf than an empty one. Right? Right.
Sensitivity as a trait is so much more than the emotion it explains. As with some others, the way sensitivity is seen as a trait is completely twisted. It’s not exactly what it actually embodies. It is seen more as a negative quality than as a positive one. And that is, in no way, an encouraging statement.
You Are A Star is a book that talks about a lot of things that Bollywood is “famous” for – the power games, the actual power behind the power bosses, the struggling newcomers, casting couch, the underworld, nepotism. It shows the beauty of struggling to come up, while also showing Bollywood’s gross underbelly.
Hello everyone! I’m here today with the September 2019 edition of Books Releasing This Month That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon. I had to skip August because I was basically a zombie walking around, so much happening around me that I wasn’t in my head at all. But I’m back now, and as way of return, here are 11 books releasing this month that have really piqued my interest.
