In 2015, I decided that I would have to do my passion for work. I decided I had to read. I took the challenge to finish reading one book every month. I did it because I had to nourish my soul and feed my dreams. I had to travel through text. So I took 12 months, 12 books challenge. Most of the books I read were randomly selected, some were loyal to this particular author and some were read. I was always sure I would document my reviews for all my friends' bookmates. So, here I present my review of the books.
January: The White Tiger by Arvind Adiga
I started reading the bestseller. This book is a revelation of the life of drivers in India. Their perception of the rich and the poor. It takes you through a life protagonist who wants to lead a dignified life like a village bus ticket collector. However, he is damaged as the story goes. He manages to lead richer life than how? This certainly describes reading.
February: Chanakya Chant by Ashwin Sanghi
Very clever written book that shifts between two periods. Chanakya wisdom harms personality solely to save India. Political background makes the book interesting. Chanakya's methods prove useful both in business and politics even today. Do not let go, it's worth collecting excitement.
Mars: Chicken Soup for Indian Soul at Work by Many Authors
Light, motivation to read, because when you feel unhappy with work. Many of her stories will help you keep going to work.
May: Princess Secrets to Share With Jean Sasson
Jean Sasson, a famous author well-known for moving refugees of women and defeating them in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kuwait and more. This is a booklet about the life of Princess Sultana, the main character of all books, and her struggle to save women and even men's lives, this time from Yemen, ISIS and Pakistan. Read it if you can handle the bitter truths of the community.
June: Get To The Top Of Suhel Seth
This book is a helpful guide on how to make people feel like you, join social circles and become social success. The language is simple and the rules are easy to remember. A fun book that is worth reading.
July: India vs Pakistan: Why can not we just be friends? by Husain Haqqani
One of my perennial favorite topics for discussion. This book surprises insight into the minds of Indian and Pakistani human authorities. It also takes us some time before India was divided, crushed and more. The author concludes with a positive, friendly explanation by providing solutions to strengthen relationships between two lost brothers.
August: Mrs. Funnybones by Twinkle Khanna
I really thought this book was silly and it seemed fun to read. I finished it in one day. The book is a page editor. It gives you a closer look at Mrs. Funnybones' Twinkle Khanna, but that's not what you imagine to be. You will like it if you want to read Moni Mohsin. A good job of Twinkle Khanna.
September: Family Wisdom by Robin Sharma
My mom got this as a gift on a trip. DIY manuals are the least favorite, though at this point I did not have a book to read and the cash was limited. Here I chose to read this. Although this book is intended for parents, I'm glad I read it at this stage of my life. It's a book that talks about creating great family prices and goals and how to connect with your children.
October: One Indian Girl by Chetan Bhagat
You could hate his work, but I read his books because of the affection, Indianness and simple language. Yes, I'm the fan of most of his books. However, you can give this miss. It's all too cinematic. What I liked is that it's written from a girl's point of view and the CB is right.
November: Gathered stories by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I received this as a gift from my best friend. If you get frightened too easily or worry about depressed stories, completely avoid this book. Almost all the stories are about deaths and ghosts. What makes it bad is, it is very descriptive of dark rotting information. Not for those who instantly perceive negativity and despise it. I will send the gift back to my friend but only on request.
Short stories from once held author of Sadat Ali Manto. His works are written during, before and after independence. He accepts human emotions and their situations in a very raw way. Within this page you will find Indian culture and the Hindustan from several decades.
To sum up my experience, I was almost breathing from a constant reading of books. Only because I knew I had a month for each book. I'm glad to have time for my hobby, again. And, as expected, I am soul nutrition, time traveling and with new dreams! I hope you can connect to the hobbies as I did.
