Will I get a chance to meet up this favorite author in the near future? It is a Herculean task to furnish thriller plots with rationale details which the author Keigo Higashino has mastered by every book of his release. One may find the plots since his ‘The devotion of suspect x’ to be cordial with culture and modern aspects of life and I truly believe that this is his style at its best. Well, coming to this story which is about making the perpetrator to admit his scandalous act that carries two different homicide case and finding the killer who has taken his life. Although sounds like an open shut case but the execution process is what steals the show. What happens when you bring the physicist Yukawa’s help to solve the mystery must be read to get the stimulating effects. I am counting on his next offer the soonest the merrier.

I had spent an hour in the bank with my dad, as he had to transfer some money. I couldn’t resist myself & asked…

”Dad, why don’t we activate your internet banking?”

”Why would I do that?” He asked…

”Well, then you wont have to spend an hour here for things like transfer.

You can even do your shopping online. Everything will be so easy!”

I was so excited about initiating him into the world of Net banking.

He asked ”If I do that, I wont have to step out of the house?

”Yes, yes”! I said. I told him how even grocery can be delivered at door now and how amazon delivers everything!

His answer left me tongue-tied.

He said ”Since I entered this bank today, I have met four of my friends, I have chatted a while with the staff who know me very well by now.

You know I am alone…this is the company that I need. I like to get ready and come to the bank. I have enough time, it is the physical touch that I crave.

Two years back I got sick, The store owner from whom I buy fruits, came to see me and sat by my bedside and cried.

When your Mom fell down few days back while on her morning walk. Our local grocer saw her and immediately got his car to rush her home as he knows where I live.

Would I have that ‘human’ touch if everything became online?

Why would I want everything delivered to me and force me to interact with just my computer?

I like to know the person that I’m dealing with and not just the ‘seller’. It creates bonds of Relationships.

Does Amazon deliver all this as well?”’

Technology isn’t life..

Spend time with people .. Not with devices

Every morning in Frankfurt, Germany, you might catch a glimpse of Jenny, a horse who goes on a long walk every morning, all by herself. She has been taking the same route every morning for 14 years, ever since her owner, now 79 years old, became unable to ride. She enjoys greeting all of the familiar faces along the way, and she stops and gets treats and pettings from some of her favorite humans. The locals treat her like a celebrity and happily clean up after her. A piece of paper is attached to her halter that reads, “My name is Jenny. I didn’t run away, I’m just walking. Thank you.” But the police get calls frequently from people who don’t know about the arrangement. They are very familiar with the horse and the owner, and there have been no incidents in 14 years. A local veterinarian gives her routine checkups and continues to find her to be healthy and showing no anxiety about her unique lifestyle.

Mythology based stories are the new trends for quite a while now. This book is the second installment from the “The Pataala Prophecy” series by the author. Why do I get the feel that this book is more about the other protagonist Maya than Arjun? Because her character alone is spoken at length and makes it quite rambunctious! The rest of the characters like Raman Kapoor, Vishwaraj and Shukra leaves theirs imprint and room for curiosities. The visual representation of tapovan was similar to Gandalf accompaniment with Frodo in “Lord of the rings”. This novel is surpassed with a hope that at least the third installment surprises me with thorough characterization coverage.

I am reading this author’s book from the “Mahabharata series” apparently this one is no different. The author knows how to keep the narrative engaging by adapting the characters from the Hindu mythology.

There is a huge resemblance between this story and Harry Potter series. For instance, Gurukul is a replica of Hogwarts school and the groups in it such as sadhs, nagas, sangha and asuras are like mud blood, half blood, order of the phoenix and death eaters! Although the story enacted differently, most of it settles in the similar trends. Amusingly, I find it entertaining for adapting the Indian historical facts. As a first installment this book invokes the interest and provokes for the second offerings!

The only graphical stories have read were tinkle series, Debbie Tung’s and now Sarah’s world of illustrations. This third installment talk about the growing internet trolls against the creative people. As a small time jewel designer it is so painstaking to present the work and embrace the critique. Moreover, the amount of time spent on online publishing squeeze in, on top reading of uninvited glitches pierce the faintest heart. Just imagine the outbursts of the current creative artists and their sufferings are unspoken off! Sarah does a fine job of revealing the shades buried underneath and pat on myself as a contributor of such demanding work.

This is a captivating tale of Jimmy Tock whose lineage falls onto a fine aerialist and clowns with a mystery attached to his parentage. What happens when things go as per his grandfather predictions is the crux of the story explained in a gripping fashion. The conversations between Jimmy and his family is enthusiastic and spreads positivism. I have read a couple of books by the author, but this book stole my heart for its stimulating verbose and content that is indulgent to the courageous efforts in life.

Humor Series – 2

Just finished reading this book by Fredrick Backman. This story deserves a pat for the presentation of weaving the fairy tale into the main plot. I liked Elsa’s questionnaires, It was so inquisitive. At places I found the resemblance of “P.S. I Love you” story structure catering to younger audience. A nice standalone book with some morals thrown in there.
