Something got into me to explore various philosophical themes of nonfiction books at a stretch. Started with Heidegger and now Derrida, I must admit that this author has delivered what they have promised to offer with less taxing excerpts. The concept of deconstruction is quite complex with un-decidability as the core which might be hard to apply the logic in the everyday stance. May be this is my personal view here, but undeniable of its application to linguistics elements. Is Derrida’s thoughts are like nihilism by any chance or a directive of transcendental solipsism. Either ways good to embrace the revolutionary thinking to succeed in a metaphysical procedure. The quote such as “Writing is a remedy for deficient memory and limited wisdom” and “As for wisdom, you offer your students a mere appearance of it, not the reality” shows his conceptual elaboration and intrusive thought seeding skills. So as an introduction this book serves right. Simply go for it without any second thoughts.

I picked this book for its size more than the content and tried to focus on the statement by the author, then I thought may be its not bad after all from the simple explanations of self analysis and easy doable exercises at the end of each chapter which proves to be worth the time. I dislike self help books that talk about complex issues with pretentious suggestions when it’s execution is a Herculean task and boring. But the author has made sure to include achievable goals through its approachable tasks. So happy to have chosen this book and kept me well informed till the end. That’s all it matters.

I truly resonate each word that is discussed in this book. As the title says, this is about bibliophile and its knack of bonding with books. When I chose to read this one I imagined to be different, but turned out vividly amicable and simple which is the selling point of this graphics novel. Each of the author books has some new elements to offer which is a great talent to me and overall persuade me to check her works regardless of her specialty. I hope the same from others who seem to carry the same audacity. Highly recommended read.

I have read very few books in fantasy section not because I am displeased, but my focus on it makes it too striving. This book is so blessed by its empirical nature of morality and glitters value of life like a piece of cake. The story is about a daughter heading to find answers for her poverty state from an old man who is gifted to change fortunes. Along the journey she befriends a dragon, small boy and some more characters that teach lessons while her perception slowly reveal the reality of her misconceptions. This statement speaks concisely to what I feel -“Fortune was not a house full of gold and jade, but something much more. Something which already have and did not need to change”. Overall a satisfying read with lots of embedded stories on offer.

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. 🙏

I do not know what made me to pick this book, but it reveals some amazing tips for mirror analysis of life. The metaphorical use of Nachiketa story is a masterstroke in this book of factual events. It is very common to hear from a spiritual or religious people of its wisdom, but uncommon to evaluate of their eminence in the subtlety of life. Let me divide my insights into two categories for a better comprehension. Firstly, if the interest is rhetorical then the questions raised by Nachiketa will be assured to convey the intended message to the right audience. The inquisitive attributes of Nachiketa are one of a kind and of a higher nature, so isn’t fathomable to all. Secondly, if pursued as an allegory, then continuous reflections are to be instigated for individual moral upliftment. Hence, the following statement explains it all and thankful to have introduced to this beautiful teaching of Kathoupanishad. “The consciousness of individuality is always searching and seeking to find the right combination to move towards the consciousness of unity”.

The scars from experiences get imprinted,

After several tries hopes are shredded,

With wet eyes oppress the unopposed,

No amount of chances is spared,

Melancholy abdicates the bold,

Neither perjury nor the indictment imposed,

But blame the wuss of nomad,

Here I am a scion of the mortal world!

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”.

A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

I am deeply enthralled with this story events and protagonist sets an amazing example of essence, morale, audacity to me. Alexander the count is house-arrested and left confined within the Metropol hotel perimeters. The lonesome walks of life with a social ennui is captivated by the infirm at large. It leaves a permanent scar of reading a spellbinding book and will provoke to poke into the author’s prior contributions. This statement left me astonished by the profound meaning inside – “What sort of divinity, he seemed to be thinking, would devise a world in which an aging man’s malady afflicts the very attribute that has set him apart from his fellow men and elevated him in the eyes of all? What sort of divinity, Emily? The very same who rendered Beethoven deaf and Monet blind. For what the lord giveth, is precisely what he come through later to taketh away.”. Truly enacted like a gentleman!

The virtue of life plays sound with a cacophony of immaturity,

Forever illumines glitter of the lord and remain silence on its purity,

Sleepless tosses and turns underground where inner reaction fears the insecurity,

Hail an active observer on the ground by escaping the phony posterity,

Thus, gloats the macro cosmic vitality!
