Wonder where to start about this playwright and what to offer to justify the true shades of life. After all everything down to how well the living was and the difference it made to serve some purpose. Well, It is about Ekdal ideology that required its countenance and account of his existence which was challenged, tested and dusted by his idealist friend Gregers Werle, who enters his home to tarnish the lie that embroiled within the Ekdal family. Apart from few re known classic mysteries never tried books that deliver the flow of intended meaning through plays of such caliber which is astounding in my honest opinion. My favorite line is “Oh, life wouldn’t be so bad in spite of everything all we poor wretches need is to be left in peace by those damned bailiffs who turn up on our doorsteps brandishing the demands of idealism”. Thoroughly promising fare and highly recommended read for sure.

Poems from Sanskrit translations are not many since it narrows to limited mythological ancient texts, but the author has made an effort to translate this anthology works which must be applauded. Being a complex language with different metrical forms and subtlety will be demanding to extract its true essence but no where it lagged. Each verse is filled with richness of wisdom from that period into ample of elegance and quality to stretch the imagination. Especially this poem stole my heart – “Ah, poverty, I mourn for your sad fate, so long ago you claimed me as your friend, And ever since have been my constant guest. Where will you find a home when I am dead?” by Sudraka. This shows how introspective, articulate the poet has been which reflects on the works. Try it to prove me otherwise, happy to corroborate.

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 came across this amazing book in a library a few times and now able to finish it in a single sitting. Well, philosophy has a reputation for being abstract concepts which makes it less engaging to hold the interest, but the author has done a commendable job of simplifying with graphical illustrations. There are many unfamiliar verbose, which has a meaning that are encountered on a day to day life and this shows prominence of the historical settings. I felt like exploring a concoction of traditional territories on a future prospects by providing a space to discover the mystery of existence and essence of life. This persuades me to check the Heidegger’s famous work ‘Being and Time’ and hope to share my views as well. My favorite quote is this “To think of beings as a whole is to think of concealment and absence. Those that do not appear for us and are not presences are unimaginable absences”. Truly astonished and spellbound by its epiphany.

I am a big fan of Perumal Murugan books since the time of ‘Poonachi’ and this is no different from his routine outpourings. If you like some short stories than you are good with this one and be ready for the 10 tiny tales that the author had embarked. Each story is filled with country side verbiage with ample of culture and rich heritage. Wonder if the author has liberal core beliefs or disregard of the aristocratic rules. Whatever may be the reason the author has a way to offer his insights in a layman manner which is highly appreciable. The four strokes of luck is not by a hidden fortune rather backs it up by sincere efforts. Simply go for it.

I admire Ashwin Sanghi books for its mythological inputs and the content alone speaks volumes of fictionalized facts. But coming to this book, the author had tried to present a dystopian look that jerked up hastily at the end. That’s because the character gets too slime and nothing much to offer. I wonder if the story was done as a prelude as the total pages sits on 38! The explanation of five dimensional space feeds the scientific minds and serve as food for thought. Hope it had many such wisdom and the length was decent enough to cut for a short story! Kind of disappointed with the size.

I have fancied some books of Haruki Murakami followed by Keigo Higashino and this will be the third Japanese author whose work has grabbed my total attention. What is it to have known a culprit upfront and devour for the right execution of vengeance? Well, the story sits on this foundation and imagine each offering their perspectives, thus leaving the room for the readers to decide. And the ending was truly impressive as the suspense is rightly acknowledged.

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

This story is about 36 years old Keiko Furukura who works in the convenience stores. She is a loner, but good at imitating her colleagues attitude and all she learns from life is either through them even though if it is limited. I was skeptical at first to try this book, but it made me feel poised for the Keiko character and not to forget the Shiraha character who is utterly annoyance and unbearable to even consider him. It is indeed hard for a woman to be left alone when family, friends, colleagues be nosy and extremely intrusive. The societal expectations are well defined by the author and poignant to find its place in a contemporary world. From the setting of the stores, of alienation, about part time jobs are penned to present its stance. My fancy to the Japanese novels are upping and hope to relish more of its outpouring from now onward. Do give it a try and see.

Huff and puff ensnare numerous cycles endures,

Realms of utterance blinds the happenstance,

Reverberates unseen command,

Shut off says the reprimand.
