I-Spy: A Peep into the World of Spies – Amit Bagaria – Review

There are different layers of non-fiction and arousing non-fiction, I say, is the most active art of writing non-fiction. So, what is that you may ask. For me, a book in the non-fiction genre that lets your hair rise and allows your mind to become super active is arousing non-fiction.

India, The West, and International Order – Book Review

It has been long since I read something of serious nature in terms of 'true non-fiction'.

History of Early India – Romila Thapar – Book Review

A country that rests on the pile of guilts of its own historical sense can never prosper; and we have too much to learn from the countries like America and China and even Japan, in this context. The history of India is very important for the world and the [...]

A Carol of Him by Twisha – Book Review

I will share the high points and the [...]
