I was amazed by the pictures that was used in the books. I was just out of words. So many people, so much of hardship. Our Government has done so much for us during this pandemic. I lost my grandmother during pandemic inspired all precautions that were taken and while she was admitted in hospital I had seen how hardworking the doctors and nurses were. As I was reading this book every memory came back. People had always criticized maharashtra govt, Indian govt for not taking measures but only if they read this book they will understand, realize the steps that were taken to protect us. So many people lost their lives for protecting us. Everyone must read this book atleast once.

▪️About the book:
Urban Chronicles ll is the second book in the graphic short stories series. It has three stories that centres upon the perils of the children of urban lifestyle where parents though provide everything superficially, fail to understand the child’s psychology. It shows how parents try to over protect, over provide, over discipline and are over ambitious with their children and in that process fail to address the child’s psychological needs.
▪️ My opinion:
All the three stories have beautiful illustrations and narration is expressive. The first story slightly irked me as i felt as it justified kidnapping with no reprimand. The reason for which the young woman kidnapped a child was not acceptable. Having said that, the stories impart a wonderful message of compassion for urban parents towards their children in this fast paced, high tech, competitive world. My favourite story is ‘Three women in a boat’. It was warm and relatable. It depicts parental anxiety that is passed on to next generations. A must read graphic novel for all grown ups.
I love poems ❤️!
!I got a review copy some days ago and here’s my Review !
The book starts with a pure, somewhat true essence of reality and deep knowledge of the godly existence.
Each poem deeply deals with very lilting nuances of existence.
With the collection of 45 poems, Author S.M Gaikwad has brought out his love for mother nature and his quality of profound observation of the environment.
One can find the stillness of the pond with the melodious tone of existence.
Each poem is describing a different aspect of happening from midnight to the current scenario of covid-19. Each poem will hold you with its aura.
One of the poems I liked the most also brings a candid outlook of the human psyche, i.e., Mother please Forgive me.
I will surely recommend this book to readers who are very much inclined towards poetry as these poems radiate the freshness of forest and garden.
Do check this book and if you do, ping meee
