Still Loved…Still Missed! : The Myriad Hues of Souls by Mridula



“Still loved…Still missed! The myriad hues of souls” is a collection of 14 short stories and a poem. These stories span characters and emotional states with canny details that touch the depths of your soul. Picturing the complexities of love, misery and mystery, the stories try to gnaw your heart like never before.

What does a flower teach us we often fail to see?

“The belly is an ungrateful wretch.” Is it true?

Once Tasha obtains a treasure in her garden, what happens next?

Ever wondered about the sparseness and illusions in life?

Does death put an end to true love?

Have all the ascetics won over their emotions?

With the power of simple language, this book transports the readers to a world scarcely thought of in our bustling lives. The allegories maintain an intense rhythm of life prompting the readers to perceive things from a unique angle.

“A whole bookful to make you think, cry, think again and move on.” ”


Firstly I really loved reading it throughout there wasn’t a point where I felt I should stop here. The beauty of this book is the stops you’ll make in between to understand the importance of emotions in life. And so much being said in simple words.

The book contains 14 short stories and few poems both of which are written brilliantly.
The cover is blue which always bring out a deep sense of something said and some of it always remaining a mystery. An innocent melancholic colour. The title brings out more nostalgia in you. How a person is still loved and missed no matter what they go through.
The author had me glued in the first story itself where the loneliness or need of one has been written it’s my most favourite story. How the sepal never gets enough credit. The other stories are also about sadness. What I really loved is from the first story itself how the author focused on something that remains right in front of us but we don’t observe it much.
Such detailing can be seen in the other stories too. The stories have been written so beautifully as if they are poems. This book is pure and full of so many emotions that one will go through.
One day someday, resilience, bluebell in woods and sepal were my most favourite in the book.
The book is a short read with alot of depth and insights to every sentence. Can’t wait for another and much longer book by the author.
Overall 4/5.

They Go to Sleep by Saugata Chakraborty




A young widow of a drug overdose victim disappears from Goa. Three years later, a British National claims to know her whereabouts minutes before departing for London Heathrow. The Police of two states is pressed into a joint manhunt. ‘They Go to Sleep’ is a racy thriller on police procedure and criminal psychology.

In the year 2043, when nobody sends a letter anymore, an unlikely candidate decides to write about his springtime memories that are soon going to be erased. When his identity gets revealed, the impact on several individuals and the society at large assumes epic proportions. ‘A Man of Letters’ is a science fiction with humane emotions at its core.

A promising poet meets his muse on board a train. They share a captivating conversation but forget to ask each other’s name. Will they be able to meet again in an Indian metro? ‘What’s In a Name?’ is a humorous look at everything Bengali: gossip, fish, cutlets and the Kolkata Book Fair.

These three stories are joined by nine equally exhilarating tales of ordinary people and the choices that they make under extraordinary circumstances. The compilation will surely compel the readers to keep their midnight lamps burning.




This book came in a good condition where I was really bemused with the cover it has a certain kind of sadness and a certain amount of feeling happy in the solitude. The black and white picture really brings in all the feels for extremes of emotions. The book is a collection of amazing stories which had different themes and the moral of every story was cryptic. This book will only be understood well if you read it properly because of the way it has been written. I really liked the way narration has been done. I somewhere felt every story said something about cities and it’s people. Easy words have been used to make it more reachable to everyone.

The majority essence of the book is in the way it has been written in a mysterious way.

Over all 3.5/5.

will you stay is a sweetheart remembrance book filled in with so much more than just a story.

I was really impressed by the cover animation Not much not less just perfect to blend in with the curiosity of the blurb.

Diving in to the characters one could relate to them at some point or the other. They have been described nicely.

The book doesn’t feel like it has been coauthored.
The feeling and soft touch to the story remains throughout.

The story is set of college time which has intricate details and the college love which is so innocent.

The letters in between
Really have alot of heaviness in them.
Talking things that hit you.

I really loved how so many quotes are put about life and the emptiness that keeps bothering.

Many important aspects are covered in the story.

The book has a poetic effect to it which I really liked.

The book is of medium length.
The story is engaging.



The Panchatheertha Part 1 by Rajiv Mittal



The Panchatheertha Part 1 by [Mittal, Rajiv]




The Panchatheertha (five pilgrimages) is a facetious, satirical revision of sections 1 & 2 of The Panchatantra, the masterpiece Vishnu Sharma wrote between 1200 BCE to 300 CE. The stories are primarily about statecraft and full of wisdom and morals. Despite that, youngsters found them very entertaining. In the tales, animals act and speak on behalf of human beings. The series begins with a parent story that unfolds story after story; each strung to the other by a narrator.

Vishnu Sharma’s reincarnation Shiva Varma has, in this redraft, revived the ancient Indian tradition of parampara (continuation of knowledge from one guru to the next). In his excitement, he forgot the younger age group of his shishyas (students). His characters now try to explain the motives for their actions, also express their feelings; something The Panchatantra had cleverly avoided doing. Within its pages, animals are still made to think and behave like human beings but have not otherwise been harmed in any way.

The Panchatheertha was considered lost but the discovery of two altered strategies ‘The Loss of Friends’ and ‘Gaining Friends’ should create hope within the large and growing community that has had considerable success with the first and complete failure with the second. Those wanting to meet Rishi Shiva Varma are hereby informed he dislikes economists, preferring astrology. He is in samadhi (seclusion / deep meditation) and not (as insinuated by some philistines) in hiding.

There are many intriguing characters not known to Vishnu Sharma in this adaptation; from a sex consultant plying his trade in the locality Ajilundpenodhoka in district Makasam… to a devadasi (courtesan) wanting to conduct the temple prayers because she is bored… to Sage Narada Muni !!

Bibliophiles are urged to read the original Panchatantra (which Shiva Varma did consider including as an appendix), to truly appreciate the extent to which history gets distorted when it is made to explain itself. Historically, the appendix has been viewed as a vestigial organ with no real function. This is why Shiva Varma chose not to include it… or so he claims.





This is just the first part? Wow. It comes of from the famous Panchatantra stories which here has been named as panchatheertha. The cover seems to be historical and plain. I feel could have been better but goes well as long as the content is really beautiful. I will not lie the book is a long read but is really focused upon teachings. Reading this made me go back to childhood and on to stories which we all love so much. There are a few stories in this collection. From names to even characters it has been so well thought. The imagery will make you go to the particular story and make you feel like you’re actually watching everything happening in front of you. Really liked the stories. I’m not going to give away the stories as for that you’ll have to read this book! Narration is good. You’ll definitely learn something from the book!

3 Steps To Himalayas: A Practical Guide To Achieve Your Goals by Ramesh Kundu

Thousands of years ago, Indian Yogis possessed the knowledge to obtain the weapons of the gods. However, this knowledge could only be transferred from a Guru to his disciple by word of mouth. In today’s world, one mystic, who calls himself Guruji, still possesses this knowledge and is using it to empower an innocent person’s life. Only, this empowerment could be a deception and the innocent person is a thirteen year old boy with a stutter… In this intertwining tale, an ambitious yet unsuccessful Shankar, in search of his identity, is manipulated to embark on a never-told-before fantasy tale; only to rediscover the father he never knew and unmask the mystical Guruji. Amidst this confounding concoction of ancient myths, deluding personas and dispersed emotions, will Shankar ever be able to separate fact from fiction and find his true identity?



The moment you pickup the book you feel like it is all about mythology or around the same topic as given by the blurb but it has so much more to it apparently. The cover is magnificent of a tigers eye and some weapons it also shows angst and power. Divyastra means divine weapon. All of us might have seen those old mythological serials where they show those weapons that could destroy everything. Book starts on a great note for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the first half of the book. It consists of science and mythology both colliding together every now and then by dr. Vyas. Dr. Vyas also cracks some jokes and correlations of new weapons. The book revolves around mythology, love which I thought shouldn’t have been included but it was okay. How one needs to get through and make something of them. The story gets a little confusing for me later but ends again on a high note. I really liked how it felt in the form of storytelling. In the end the references and also glossary has been given which shows in the detailed research that the author might have gone through.
The language is easy to understand
