Getting MAXIMUM Out of Your Reading Habits!

Be it on the stones or be it on the LED screens of the Kindle devices, humanity goes hand in hand with the noble practice of reading and writing. Ordinary men read; extraordinary men produce what ordinary men read; above extraordinary men write on what the extraordinary men write… and the cycle [...]

Shilpa Raj – rise of an author for the have-nots!

Authors do not come from other planets nor are they special species. They are very much a part of our human race and the very society we live in. Nevertheless, there is a thin line of distinction which separates those who do write - they think different.

Is Literature Propaganda? An Attempt to Answer

In most of these days, I was thinking one thing constantly. Are there the literary pieces which are but propaganda?

Patna Book Club – a spark of intellectual discourse

This Sunday, 4 April 2017, was quite amazing. Though I am not a big fan of food chains (be it big guns or the start-ups), because of peace and comfort, I was at the Cafe Coffee Day, Gandhi Maidan, Patna. There were 7 people, including myself, and two others joined later. A gathering of nine heads does not sound like a gathering at all, does it? However, it was remarkable [...]

Books on my reading list for February-March 2017

What am I reading right now? As a fellow reader, if you too have the same question to be asked from no other than yourself, you are an inspired reader who cares to read new things as well as learn. As a literary entrepreneur (sounds good and new? no, I didn't coin it), I do have to invest my time in different things - planning, executing and planning again... Nevertheless, [...]

Arnab Goswami The Face of Indian TV Journalism

Kudos Arnab Goswami! We watch you! Time! Let's get back home. Close the laptop; pack the backpack (or side-bag if you are a classic person); if you are lucky to reach home before the primetime media slot, get fresh, and let us sit for the plate-full of journalism dose. Start the 'channel shifting' process and pause where you find something suitable for you. No doubt, most of the people find [...]
