Elixir- A Book Review

Elixir- A Book Review

I had picked up Elixir from the New Delhi World Book Fair last year on a publisher friend’s recommendation. Post that, meeting Sinjini Sengupta on Women’s Day earlier this year and following her feed on social media, I knew this would be one powerful read but never imagined it to be ‘unputdownable’ ( yippee I [...]

Book Review – The Forest of Enchantments

Book Review – The Forest of Enchantments

Since childhood, I have never been a big fan of Goddess Sita as a mythological character. Somehow she always seemed too much of a Miss Goody-Two-Shoes (Bhakts, don’t run to kill me yet! Read the review first!). The fiery Draupadi and the fierce Parvati who stood their own always seemed more attractive as Goddesses to [...]

When She Tempted The Man

When She Tempted The Man

As they sat across the table, he clenched his fist tight. ‘You can never tempt me’ he said angrily. ‘Oh really?!’ she retorted, equally fiercely.

Breathe-Run-Breathe-Run…she ran her way out of blues!

Breathe-Run-Breathe-Run…she ran her way out of blues!

One step and the next and the next, Saanvi ran her way to the finish line. Sweat beads running down her face, her legs giving out under her, she had never felt more alive. It was five years since she had started running. She had never imagined herself as a runner. She had never been [...]

Dancing with Her Tiger Stripes!

Dancing with Her Tiger Stripes!

It had been 4 years since the birth of her daughter, but Amaira still wasn’t sure she wanted to do this. She still remembered the day when she got back from the hospital after delivering her baby. Pregnancy had been a roller coaster journey with its ups and downs…from the ecstatic feeling of finding out [...]
