Astitva by Monika Davessar – eBook Review

posted by Anupriya September 27, 2018 3 Comments

I have been a publicly tagged ‘Feminist’ ever since I found my voice. Be it my friends, classmates and colleagues, or my family all of them have rather had major concerns about how I would fit into a marriage with my strong headed views about the basic freedom that women ought to enjoy in life. But then one has to understand that as a feminist, I am not against women adjusting or compromising on various aspects of life. My objection comes strong, when its only women who are expected to adjust or compromise. I know many of you would raise your eye-brows at my words – Haah! You left your career to be with your husband in a different city and left your job, to take care of your kids. Your are not entitled to talk about Feminism

But that’s precisely my point. I did what I did because I wanted to do so. No one forced anything on me. Even today as a stay at home mother, I have my freedom to move out, learn some new things, meet my friends, meet new people and spread my wings. My parents-in-law and my husband have never put any limits on what I must or what I must not. The only limitation I am bound by is my sense of responsibility towards my kids and other members of my family. Continue Reading

26 Favourite Foods & a Little Bit Of Me by Mayuri Nidigallu – Book Review

posted by Anupriya August 1, 2018 6 Comments

One of the earliest lessons I learnt as an aspiring blogger were about the significance of being active on social media. As I began to follow various blogging communities on twitter, a couple of bloggers came across to me as extremely level headed and straight forth in their opinion. Mayuri Nidigallu was one amongst them. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration if I said that I was totally in awe of her blog posts that were full of practical wisdom and her opinions that she shared via her twitters. Given that I have been carrying a tarot deck with me for almost 12 years now, in hope of learning it someday and the fact that Mayuri Nidigallu is a Tarot Reader created an additional pull towards her. So I was not surprised at myself, when I pounced on the opportunity to review her book that was published with the #BlogchatterEbookCarnival this year. Continue Reading

How I Wrote My Comic Book by Priyanka Vermani – BookReview

posted by Anupriya July 23, 2018 2 Comments

The most hard hitting realization that this book brought home to me was the complex nature and process of coming up with a graphic book. Never in the past while reading innumerable comics did I ever fathom the prolonged labor that goes behind the flashy looking easy to read graphics. So first and foremost, my respects to the awesome Priyanka Vermani, who thought out ‘Samaira and The Gang In London’ and pursued her dream to make it a reality.

Deal of Death by Sonia Chatterjee – Blogchatter EBook Review

posted by Anupriya June 13, 2018 2 Comments

As a reader, I have often confessed that I can’t handle suspense thrillers. Why? Because I just can’t wait for the suspense to unfold! I become jumpy and am on my toes and can’t stop turning pages until I have reached the climax. And no, I never ever skip to the last page to find out what happened and come back to read the plot. It just doesn’t work with me. So this year after the Blogchatter Ebook Carnival, when I picked up Deal of Death by Sonia Chatterjee to review, I knew I was going to have to find a considerably big time slot in my busy schedule (oh not because I have a lot of work; just that I have two pre-schoolers who are on their summer vacations!) and finish the book in one go. And voila! I have done it in straight 90 minutes (of course amidst baby poops, milk spills, kid fights and much more). Continue Reading
