Book Review: Asura Tale of the Vanquished by Anand Neelakantan

8 years ago Shaili Desai 0
I miss MICA. Yes, I do. It’s not like it was Utopia (In some ways, though, it probably was, compared to real life). People living together in a campus means that there are bound to be the usual jealousies, back stabbings and the constant need to hide your insecurities by pretending to be someone you Read More

Some ‘bites’ from Manish Gupta, author of English Bites

8 years ago Shaili Desai 0
English was always my favorite subject in school. Whenever the text books would be bought for the new school year, I would pick up the English textbook and finish reading it in two hours. And the rest of the year would pass, along with examinations, without me ever studying a word of it. I was Read More

Book Review: He loves me not by Vrushali Telang

8 years ago Shaili Desai 2
He loves me not by Vrushali Telang is the story of Jimmy Cooper and Mehroo Nasarwanji, childhood friends (sweethearts doesn’t exactly seem to be the right word).

Book Review: Compass Box Killer by Piyush Jha

8 years ago Shaili Desai 6
Probably this was the wrong time to start this book. I shouldn’t probably have started Compass Box Killer by Piyush Jha right after finishing ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ by J K Rowling writing as Robert Galbraith. The book’s in the same genre of crime fiction but they are both so different. If it were to be made Read More

July’s gone and August has already started! It’s that time of the month when you are no longer broke. It’s that time of the month when you get that long awaited SMS on your mobile. It’s that time of the month for which you slog the whole month. Finally, you don’t need to gaze wistfully Read More
