BLURB as on Goodreads

In exchange for her lucky leopard’s claw pendant, Binya acquires a beautiful blue umbrella that makes her the envy of everyone in the village, especially Ram Bharosa, the shopkeeper. It is the prettiest umbrella in the whole village and she carries it everywhere she goes.

The Blue Umbrella is a short and humorous novella set in the hills of Garhwal. Written in simple yet witty language, it captures life in a village – where ordinary characters become heroic, and others find opportunities to redeem themselves.

My Review

‘The umbrella was like a flower, a great blue flower that had sprung up on the dry brown hillside.’

A pretty little umbrella which is blue in color brings unbound happiness in Binya’s life. She carries it everywhere with so much…

Get Out Of A Toxic Relationship Before It’s Too Late

Bookish Fame

Misogyny, hateful, ludicrous, downright bashful, and all the amazing words I have been reading across the review of the proclaimed “intense love story” Kabir Singh.

Well, I am not here to carry forward the rant that’s been brewing and showing up across all the social media channels. In fact, I am here to put together all my attention to one crucial and unsettling issue pervading the love relationships of our society. In one of the instances in the movie, the female protagonist goes on to say that Kabir, I am nothing without you and cries whereas our intense, drunk, chauvinist, misogynist Kabir slaps her and says, “Tu meri bandi hai” implying that she is nothing without him and has no identity of her own. This hit me hard and I was forced to spill the thoughts living inside of me forever.

I have seen girls tormenting and traumatizing themselves…

  • Traditionalists or Silent Generation: Born 1945 and before.    The Silent Generation refers to people who were born between 1925 and 1945. There are several theories as to where the label ‘Silent Generation‘ originated. The children who grew up during this time worked very hard and kept quiet.

Timepas…मत बनो..

Inspiring Talks

किसी के जीवन का time-pass मत बनो
जो बनाये तुम्हें अपना ग़ुरूर ,
ऐसे दिल की धड़कन बनो
माना थोड़ा मुश्किल है
फिर भी time-pass मत बनों
जब किसी के केवल ,
रात का सहारा बनते हो,
गन्दगी की तरह छिपाये जाते हो,
जब तुम्हें कोई केवल,
हवस में याद करता है,
फिर भी ग़लतफ़हमी मे जीते हो,
और ख़ुद को किसी का प्यार कहते हों ?
किसी के जीवन का पाप नहीं
प्रेम और प्रेरणा बनों,
अगर प्रेम और प्रेरणा होते,
तो राधे-कृष्ण होते।
अगर ऐसा नहीं है तो,
केवल रात के अंधेरें मे बिकने वाला सामान हो
फिर भी ग़लतफ़हमी मे रहते हो,
और ख़ुद को किसी का प्यार कहते हो।

Smile..

Inspiring Talks

I do not know how long life is going, how long it will last. But when I wake up every morning and become able to smile on the faces of my children, despite millions of troubles, it seems like I have won the world. Most proud then I feel when both of my children come to know their problems anytime soon. He has so much confidence in his mind that she will handle everything, she has a solution to all the problems. This is the thing that my children have given me as a gift.
