Bed time

Bed time stories is a collection of 21 stories and 3 ballads/ poems. Each story ends with a moral and brings out the realistic, moral and creative aspect into every story.

The stories are very simple but captured by attention. I liked one magic pencil story. It reminded me of a children’s serial I used to watch on television as a kid. The magic pencil could do anything and everything. Whereas, in this story, there is a moral. The young kid was hardworking and diligent. But when he gets a magic pencil, he lets it takes control and becomes lethargic.

One small mistake or thought from the boy messes his exams in a bad way. The moral of the story says that one should always work hard and there is no short cut to hardwork. A creative way to answer to the dreams of every kid to skip homework or exams.

A good reminder. 😊 These are the kind of books which resonate with the current generation and imbibes moral behavior in them. Need more of such books.

THE VANISHING HALF.

Author: Brit Bennett.

Genre: Contemporary family drama, historical fiction.

Triggerwarnings: racism, domestic violence, colourism.

Rating: 4⭐

Teenage light skinned black identical twins, Desiree and Stella Vigne, elope from a small town called Mallard in Louisiana. But soon after, Stella just vanishes leaving behind nothing but a note for Desiree. Years later, Desiree returns to Mallard with her dark skinned daughter Jude, while Stella continues to live hidden as a white woman with her white husband and their daughter, Kennedy, abandoning her own family. Their lives reach a full circle when their respective daughters come face to face unintentionally threatening to unveil the lie on which Stella has built the foundation of her new life.

This is one of the best recommendations I have received. While the theme of the book is colourism, racism and domestic violence, it also highlights the prejudice of colorism within the community. It was disturbing and empowering at the same time. It shows how the colour of the skin determines a lot of aspects in the lives of the people. It talks about the extent to which black and coloured people are shunned, that they don’t mind losing their own identity in order to be accepted. Characterization by the skin colour is prominent in the story to emphasize on the affects of racism. It hovers on the idea of bigotry, ethnicity, regret and a life based on a compulsive lie.

This book is a non- linear, multi- generational story of the Vigne twins. The characters are dynamic, raw, and show their grey side of survival. I was able to get into the flow of its smooth narration easily. There is an audiobook on YouTube that you can check out.

IN XANADU. A Quest

Author: William Dalrypmple.

Genre: Travelogue.

Rating:  4.5⭐

Xanadu, now Shangdu, is located in Inner Mongolia, northern China. It was the first capital and the summer capital of the Mongol Empire in the 1263. Xanadu was famous for its palaces, gardens and waterways and was Kublai Khan’s favourite summer palace.

Kublai Khan was the grandson of Genghis Khan and the founder of the Yuan Dynasty in the 13th century China. He was the ruler of the Mongol Empire for 30 yrs. During his reign, Xanadu flourished, making it one of the richest kingdoms. After Kublai Khan’s death, however, Yuan Dynasty started to decline, thus changing the face of the once prosperous city to shambles. Xanadu was believed to be so beautiful, that ‘Xanadu’ term is still used as a metaphor for opulence or an idyllic place.

In 1270s Marco Polo, a Venetian merchant, explorer and a writer travelled along the Silk Route with his father and his uncle and reached Xanadu where he served the court of Kublai Khan for 17 years. Though he was not the first European to reach China, Marco Polo was the first to leave a detailed chronicle of his experience. His travel book inspired Christopher Columbus and many other travellers. Author and his companions are one of the many who decided to retake this path once taken 7 centuries back. They started from Jerusalem to reach a tedious route with multiple ethenic diversities, landscapes and overcame diplomatic complications, struggled for basic comfort to finally reach Xanadu. This travelogue takes us through two timelines, 1270s and 1980s with the glimpse of the history compared to the present . He has collated his observations with that of Marco Polos, adding his own version about the aspects which were either not present or overlooked by the later.

It does take a moment to get into the book if you don’t know the background of the topic. I had to do my own research to understand the scene. Nevertheless, it improved my knowledge and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this hilarious travelogue. It has its ups and downs but never a dull moment.

Summer 00s

Every year when the summer season comes, it constantly reminds me of my childhood days, and I feel nostalgic about the Summer 00s. To share my glimpse of childhood, I would like to share how I spent one of the summer days.

Listening to birds chirping, playing in the sea, making sand castles, and playing with dad and siblings was a wonderful memory. Later after coming home, we all are exhausted just from looking at the hot scorching sun; I have decided not to step out of the house. I switched on the fan and lay flat on the floor with an ice bar in hand. Mom called me to help her get the fryums sundried on the terrace. Lazily I got up and went to her with a sulking face, then she said, “Meri laadli, I will give you cool mango juice if you help me” by listening to the word mango, I decided to help her with her chores on the terrace.

After one hour, its 1 pm, and one of my favorite summer past time in the afternoon was watching TV. Especially I watch Looney tunes, Mickey & friends, popeye, Oswald, Pengu, Ben 10, Tom & Jerry, Pink Panther, Angry Birds, and The Powerpuff Girls. Well, after watching all these serials, it would be 4:30 pm. As the sun starts to set down, now I wish to go out with my bicycle, to play outside. Once I reach the park, I am fond of playing with the puppies around the park corner, and then I like to play on the swing with my friends. After getting tired of playing around, I reached home and ate the food cooked by my mom and listened to my grandma’s stories, and I would sleep.

Life was effortless during my childhood. My only worry was the homework and being scared of the Maths subject.

Now, I would not complain that my life has become challenging, but it has changed into complete grown-up life: studies, jobs, bills to pay, and attending get-togethers (not a fun business). But, once in a while, everyone should take time to appreciate the little things around them, keep more in touch with the environment, and appreciate the beauty of nature.

Just not me; many people miss their childhood and wish to relive it again. Right now, mental stress has become a new unseen pandemic in today’s generation. Every person has a trigger point for their youth and wants to share it with others. I want to give them a place to share their childhood memories and make it a #summer 00s part of my blog; they are free to upload or comment on the blog about the best memory of their childhood.

THE ADVENTURES OF JIMMY AND ANDREW: AMERICAN STONEHENGE.

Genre: Middle-grade adventure fantasy with illustrations.

Author: Mike Goldstein.

Andrew is not an ordinary dog. He is not only immortal but can also hear people’s thoughts. Born during the ancient Egypt almost 5000 yrs ago, Andrew has seen a lot. So in the present, when Jimmy, a nine year old boy adopts Andrew, their journey of thrilling escapades together begin. The moment they set eyes on each other, there is an instant connection.

Jimmy’s parents take them along on an exploration of a strange mysterious Stonehenge sighting similar to that in England. While on the way, they hear stories and together try to discover the mystery of the ancient structure. They meet strange people, decipher symbolic puzzles, protect each other from the unknown danger that only they can sense. Also, Andrew tells him fascinating stories from his past. His birth and various narrow escapes, his different companions over the time and their special bonds, his adventurous journey and the life lessons that make Andrew a wise dog. He teaches Jimmy a lot of things and guides him through his young ways.

The book seems to be a complete movie but I loved the way the author had articulated his thoughts and made this piece a worth read .

This book is brilliant. The story is gripping, full of adventure in every chapter, has easy comprehensive language and beautiful illustrations about the on going story. There is never a dull moment in the story that takes us back and forth to the important historical moments which Andrew has “witnessed”. I absolutely adored the concept and the authors vision. One of a kind with the potential to be an exciting series for the young readers, this book is a must read for every child who loves excitement and a series of colourful exploits.

Amazing

The book is explained on the basis of questions and answers.
It’s a huge book but very informative book
Author has explained some of the other entrepreneurs really life situations so that we would not get inspire from it but also glance the flaws in it and we should not do it again.

I got to know very new things and I was really happy to know such things. The book will bring positive changes in everyone’s life
Language is simple and easy to understand. Cover page is nice. Title is awesome
