Day 1 : Discovering India Readathon

Day 1 : A book set in Pre-independence era

midnightChildren

Midnight’s Children from Salman Rushdie was my first book on Day 1 of #discoveringIndiaReadathon challenge.

The book was first published in 1995 and revolves around a boy named Saleem Sinai who is born among many children on Midnight hour on the precise moment when India got Independence.

This is a slow read, and consisting of 428 pages. I wasn’t able to complete the book on Day1, so this still remains to be read again. Once the readathon is finished, or someday between if I finish another book pretty soon.

~ The review will be posted once the book is completely finished.

Feel free to follow me in this readathon on insta Neha

 

Book Review : Spoilt for Choice

DSC_0693_CH - Copy.jpg

Book- Spoilt For Choice
Author- Dr. Poornansha Shrivastava
Publisher- HALF BAKED BEANS

Paperback Price – 189/- (Discounted price)
Pages- 210

 

The cover pic, displays what the books is about.
Its love vs passion. Some people go in a tug-of-war between love & passion. There is a couple on top (LOVE), and in reflection there is a boy racing a bike(PASSION). Also looking more closely to cover pic the motor bike traces covers the image.

It’s a love story of Samarth, who fell in love at first sight with Sachi. How they come together, and then goes apart is the story about. Pursing his under graduation study as dentist, he manages to pursue his passion as motorsport racer. Which he developed in his teens while taking part in illegal racing.
A story how Samarth competes among 200 Riders to participate in motorcycle racing that is conducted every season till the final round that leads to one champion.

The story gives us a deep insight of what fails in long distance relationships. Samarth’s relationship with Sachi goes for a toss when he is not able to give the time she needs. And in between she keeps on using Samarth, and goes into relationship with more than one person other than Samarth.

Here is what I loved about Story,
1. The friendship shown between Samarth, and his friends. They are always available in his highs, in his lows.
2. If a person take his passion seriously, he can achieve it.
3. How the author, Poornansh Shrivastava has used casual talks between friends.
4. How the author, has detailed the entry, journey of his motorsport career.

However, there are certain loopholes in story, and grammatical errors.

Author is a Dr. and a Racer, for that I would like to give this 4/5.

Cover: 4/5
Title: 4/5
Blurb: 4/5
Theme: 4/5
Story: 3/5
Characters: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

You can by book at Amazon -> Spoilt For Choice

The book was provided by Half Baked Beans(HBB) in exchange for a genuine review.

This is a semi-autobiographical by the author. This book will definitely be appreciated by motorsports people.

One night stands were his favorites,
until he found the one,

Not everyday we wake up, we feel like we can win over the world. But on the days we don’t, the difference is our attitude towards it.

Lets give life it’s chance and enjoy every moment it brings.

To Who may ever it reaches,

Have a great day..!!

Buff : DPChallenge

DPChallenge word for today is Buff

Not sure of what the word could mean, I searched up google. Came up with quite a definition. Here is my words on word Buff : that means Polish

The stone in question was rough,
all it needed was a buff.

A precious stone everyone thought,
but I had it enough.

I rubbed it with a cloth,
nothing precious & dropped it in a huff.

Suddenly lights blinded me,
as the stone fell on my stuff.
Something blue came out from my trouser’s cuff.

“Hello, I am Genie” , he said in a gruff.

I left stone in the cave
& ran outside because it was strangely enough.

Well after this, did I wake up from my dream ??

May be, May be not be..

I did look up for the rhyming words, and learned new words & meanings of some words.
