I too had a love story – Ravinder Singh

lovFriends,

This novel is simply superb, a special subject and brilliantly written story around that. Thanks to the person who suggested me to read this book.

This is the first novel of the author Ravinder Singh who is a software engineer like us but with an extra ordinary talent of storytelling.  Topic which was chosen is a unique one to write a book but very common among the people who are working and getting ready for the marriage.

For one more day – Mitch Albom

Do we always stand up by our parents when they need us? Can we give them as much as they have given us in terms of love, care and affection? Do we remember and can we count how many sacrifices they have done for us.  Aren’t we more interested in keeping our managers happy than our parents?images

This is not a spiritual or a motivational guide (How to respect your parents and keep them happy) but a very simple and straight tale.  I am damn sure everyone who will read this, will find himself in the lead character.

This is a very touchy and eye opening story of a man and his mother, written very beautifully. It has all the love of a mother and all the ignorance of a son.  “Times when my mom stood up for me” and “Times when I did not stand up for my mom” these are the two building blocks of the narrative.

The White Tiger – Aravind Adiga

What to say about a book which has already proved itself by winning most prestigious award, Booker Man Prize for 2008. The book was not in the lime light before it was nominated for the award, and the reason was the author Aravind Adiga who is very new as an author. This is his first book which is got published. He is now among very few Indian authors who won this award.
