Sonal Bharjia Singh’s book ‘Iridescent life’ talks about self-realization and is an interesting non-fiction read. Read the review here.
This book is a story of life from the author’s perspective and everyone can relate to it. It is about every individual who has been in a relationship. It’s about anyone who has ever been happy or dejected. This book is just a small effort to help people recognize themselves and their lives as it is essential to understand life before living it.
The book is about the author’s perception of life and the various stages in life. She brings out the general view or notion and how it differs according to her. She talks about liberation of women, the thinking process of brain, the yearning to ask life for more. She does explain them beautifully with references to her childhood. Then there is a chapter about what she regrets and how she is considered weird. There are 19 chapters, each of which is based on her opinion on the difference in thought process.
The book cover made me fall in love with it immediately. Samridhi Bharti has done a commendable job which also is one of the reasons that made me read it immediately. As you know, appearance also plays an important part. It’s a small read and can be finished maybe in two or three hours during a short journey.
As I mentioned in the theme, the book is about the author’s take on life which anyone can relate to. The book talks about self- realization which is the basis of life and which when done right makes it easier to take on anything in life. After all, understanding oneself will make us better, judge situations and act accordingly. The book has 19 chapters which are inspired by her own experiences and her own life and thoughts the way she has accepted her life in all the colors as she believes that “there are more colors to life than just black and white”. However, I did find few places contradictory to the point that was initially made and some minor grammatical errors. But, I would still recommend this book as it is about self-realization.

Everyone said my perfect husband was like Lord Ram…. but this is how he took unfair advantage of my tolerance!
My grandmother was very fond of my husband whose name is synonymous with Lord Ram’s name. Every call she made to my husband started with the bhajan “Aaj sab mil mangal gao, Awadh mai, raam aye hain“. (Hail everyone, sing praises, Lord Ram has come in the kingdom of Awadh.) It was a mandatory welcome song whenever she met him or even spoke to him on the phone. Yes, his attributes were like that of Lord Ram. His attitude, chivalry, persona, fair skin, smile, height, physique and charm illustrate the perfect image of Lord Ram.
He was a generous man but she hardly knew much about the investments or their financial health. A couple of times, she had asked him and he had been vague. Now when she thought about it...

The Muse of the Month is a monthly writing contest organised by Women’s Web, bringing you original fiction inspired by women.
Chandrika R. Krishnan is one of the winners for the November 2021 Muse of the Month, and wins a Rs 750 Amazon voucher from Women’s Web. The juror for this month, Anuradha Kumar commented, “This introspective, quiet, story with its depiction of the relationship between two relatively older people is quite impressive. A lifetime spent together can bring familiarity and still allow for many mysteries and secrets. Also, the structure of the story, shifting from an external perspective to an internal monologue is well-done.”
A fan's tribute to the superstar - Lalita Iyer's Sridevi: A Queen of Hearts - is exactly what it sounds like, and should be read as much for the author's razor sharp style, as for the iconic actor herself.
A fan’s tribute to the superstar – Lalita Iyer’s Sridevi: A Queen of Hearts – is exactly what it sounds like, and should be read as much for the author’s razor sharp style, as for the iconic actor herself.
When I was asked whether I’d like to review Lalita Iyer’s Sridevi – Queen of Hearts, I agreed just because of one reason. No, it wasn’t because I was a Bollywood buff or a huge Sridevi fan, because fortunately or unfortunately, I’m neither. I wanted to read and review the book because of its author Lalita Iyer. I’ve read Iyer’s previous book and I follow her blog. Her writing appeals to me primarily because of its down to earth charm. Reading her is almost like sitting for a session of what we Bengalis call ‘adda’ with friends. No matter what she writes about, she manages to make it sound like an interesting anecdote and that’s why I feel that it is effortless reading her. Iyer delivers with her sharp yet simple style even in Sridevi.
She started the book with the disclaimer that she’d never met Sridevi, and this book was a fan’s tribute to the superstar.
Sagarika Ghose's book Indira - India's Most Powerful Prime Minister is a no holds barred look at the good, bad, and the ugly of her life.
Sagarika Ghose’s book Indira – India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister is a no holds barred look at the good, bad, and the ugly of her life.
For the Bhakts, Sagarika Ghose is the symbol of so-called ‘sickular’ Lutyens Delhi hypocrisy. For the trolls she is among those from our tribe of journalists on whose pen the tribe-of-trolls feeds and flourishes to an unbelievable might. For me she has been a prolific writer and a fearless one at that.
Be it Twitter or elsewhere, her pen represents a woman who speaks her mind, despite facing brickbats. No wonder she came out with a book she believed in. (I know I too will be trolled for writing this piece, like I was for my Tweet Reviews while reading the book…but then who cares? Aren’t we all journalists facing the same wrath now-a-days? Ahem….a #SarcasticLaugh)
