I have become an ardent fan of Ashwin Sanghi books and completed 3 of his books from Bharat series within this month. His details to historical artifacts, folkloric and semantic is reverential to some of his works. The latest book trumpets on this count and have been bowled over again by the veracity of the content. By taking the true political scenarios such as doklam issues, foreign trades and adapting further is inspirational for the new creative writers in terms of content development. And this is what Ashwin has proposed in here and had given his best shot. I am proud to be a mere hawker of this great book. 😉

Living with the Himalayan Masters by Swami Rama

I have come across this book on several occasions in the book shop’s but my interest was laid aside at that time. And here am trying to brood over missing such a rare commodity earlier. This runs as an upliftment memoir of an ascetic code of conduct, existence and its pursuance. From microcosmic to the macro level of spirituality is explained in the layman language. I find Swami Rama’s point of views pensively accompanied by his true quest for wisdom. 🙏

This is about a sage who lived for 160 years in Kolkata, India and spent most of his life in various Himalayan caves. The arduous process of Hatha yoga practices imparted by his guru Bagawan shows how much training a disciple endures. It is exhilarating to visualise the sumeru mountain descriptions and miraculous healing of a person’s illness. The following statement from the book is intriguing and hope it stirs the same effects for others. “The Gita is not a reading material to be read as a matter of routine. You must become the Gita. That is the entire purpose of the Gita”.

I was wondering how to bring into words and express the views of this book. It is beyond the tenacity of my judgement as every character is enlivened and focused on their outlooks. However, the story is a continuation of the earlier parts, each part can be a stand alone on its own. It is immensely challenging to talk about a taboo topic and narrate it to laymen terms. The author must have the required exposures or deep insights to keep it appealing to the readers. For instance, one may find the uncle character Nallayan in every family and his talks initiate the philosophical toast. Whether it is a belief system, working of country community, muses of the agrarian economy, tasty village palettes or the predicament of the couple’s intimacy all join hands together to create a profound impact. Having two ending is sending a metaphor for the upcoming creative minds or that’s how it made me feel. If you ask me which ending suits better I would opt for the previous part’s which is way more blissful than this one. So highly recommended read blindly go for it.

Buy One Part Woman Book Online at Low Prices in India | One Part Woman  Reviews & Ratings - Amazon.in

The nuances of a childless couple in the countryside and their affinity is covered in a bold manner in this book. The characters Kali and Ponna is etched like a tailor made clothing for the author perceptions. Ironically the way society operates can be too intimidating and freedom-less, so this is what is offered in heavy portions bridging the various folkloric tales. It was Nallayyan’s character that leaves an everlasting impression by his fearless nature towards life. Perumal Murugan chose a subject that is either controversial or conspicuous to the readers. Also,not many would like this story and the end is left to the reader’s interpretations which causes an unsatisfied feeling.

Independence is freedom attained from slavery,

fought consistently and showered in bravery.

The emblem in flag denotes the ashokachakra,

representing the 24 spokes of dharmachakra.

Cultures of India vary in range,

but stays closer with ongoing change.

Diversified nation and runs in democracy,

confronts the idea behind any hypocrisy.

The country with so many beliefs,

citizens supporting and celebrating in relief.

Lot of muses add to its background,

get together to play the sound.

Singing of the anthem on board,

making public rose in their code.

This is the day for patriotic,

away from the hustle of chaotic.

Here we’re alive from the sacrifices,

made by those with a spice.

Roads rippled in look, paths narrow around nook.

Smell of an earth, with shortness of breath.

The spectacle turns hazy, rain showers in lazy.

Entered the sunny cottage, stared at extreme wattage.

Lobby glittered with lights, and welcome bids polite.

There stood the view, unspoken of the blue.

Planned for the day, excited about this stay.

Morning breeze blows over, echoed to push over.

Cuckoo whacked from buzzing, the voice of parroting?

Nature is always calm, with an embedded balm.

Sight of happy valley, nothing like an alley.

Muses from this place, is an incomparable ace.
