Review : Man Manthan by Dr. Amit Prakash

Here’s a review of my Anthology by Pawan kumar Sharma. He loved it and I am sure you will love it too. Please read and share the love. 🙂

Sleepwell

The poems by Mr. Amit Prakash are very heartfelt and you can always relate with them somewhere or the other. They are not only lucid and rhythmic but also has a  deep sense of beauty and feelings. Just like a rainbow has many colors in it, the poems of Amit covers many facets of life, be it Softness, Sprituality, Search, Haiku, Eco or Patience.

Your lines in the poem ‘Aabhar’ for Parents is very touching and true…” Yu to yeh raah aasaan n thi, per chulu aashman..me ish hod me tha, lagne n paya paw me kanta per koi, kyonki me to aapki gaud me tha”. A Maa nurtures and nourishes us is so many ways, she takes all the pains so that we always feel comfortable. A very beautiful and heart touching expression by you…

Diwani  bas eek majno tha, yeh hamme n batlaiye

Uski eek lela thi, toh…

Hello everyone!

Welcome aboard the #BlogchatterProjects. I have barely been pulled into this wagon at the last moment (ya, much like the DDLJ climax) and here I am with my stuff on the menu. People have come up with such awesome projects on social and informative topics but mine is a bit old-school.

I have compiled a poetic bouquet of all the verses and poems that have been hovering in 15cover817EfrontRound1my mind (and spilling onto my blog from time to time) and have managed to get it published. “मन मन्थन: एक काव्य संग्रह” It is not just my brainchild; ‘coz you can feel my heart and soul too in this one. So it is much more than that. I am here to take my book to the eyes and ears it deserves. It may not be a huge success yet but for me it is nothing short of that. To be able to come up with it and getting it published is already a success story for me.

Book review 3: #BlogchatterEbookCarnival

Hey Guys!! Here’s my third and the last (most probably) review for the Blogchatter Ebook Carnival. I may come up with a few more if I can get past the hands of clocks squeezing me with those preoccupations. I must say I have really loved being a part of this initiative by blogchatter. Got my first anthology published, learnt so many new things and read such wonderful books. I have been lacking on the reading part of being a blogger but all thanks to blogchatter I am back with all my eyes and ears.

So, why this book? As the author has said…why not? Being a poetry lover (or a poet if I may say) one of my selection had to be about poetry. Because I mostly write in Hindi and I want to explore more of English poetry, I chose this one. Poetry is not just a rhyme but it has way more depth than the deepest of creeks and you will realize it within a few pages of this masterpiece.

About the Book: AEROGRAMME BY NIVEDITA

Aerogramme-900x0

This book is a collection of the poems written in the author’s journal  along the journey called ‘everyday’. This is an attempt to recapture her thoughts over a period of the years she lived away from home yet moved closer to it.

About the Author:

Nivedita N, a Hyderabadi has taken the yatra called poetry in 2007. Her journey with poetry include conversations with her muses over cups of chai  sitting near the Hussain Sagar Lake or her rendezvous with the historical figures. She currently resides in Milwaukee where she meets her muses over Caramel Coffee during Spring and Fall and hibernates during Midwestern winters.

What I loved about the book:

  1. It is everyday life woven into poetry: It is amazing how the author has turned everyday routines into poetic marvels. A rare feat I must say.
  2. You can feel the backyard mumble, the childhood memories, the drizzling, the rain; smiles and the pain. It’s all here in these short poems.
  3. I loved the style and depths of these poems.
  4. Philately-My favorite poem of the mix: Beautiful rainbow of childhood memories, lost hobbies, foodie thoughts, Satire, pun, smiles and world tour in a jiffy…
  5. Short and sweet: A beautiful collection of handpicked short poems to brighten up your days and musify everything around you:-)

Verdict: 4/5. A poetic bliss…

First of all kudos to the blogchatter team for being the dream machine that churned out so many dreams into the real world all at once. It is a great achievement on their part to be hosting thirty three Ebooks on the second edition of their #EbookCarnival and each one is an amazing masterpiece.

Out of the rainbowy mix of Ebooks, I instantly felt the connection with this one. I may not exactly be a minimalist already but I have been on this journey for a while now and if you are too, you will love this book.

About the Book: A to Z of Minimalism

Cover-page_a-to-z-of-Minimalism
Image source

This book lists the path the author charted out for herself but I am sure most of us can connect to as well. She believes in transforming life step by step on the lines of the quote “Minimalism is not a goal but a journey” and it is beautifully described in her book.

About the Author:

Upasna– she is a full time working professional, a full time mother (actually being a mom can never be linked with a clock), a full time blogger and now an author. She blogs at “Life through my bioscope” about self improvement, parenting experiences, inspirations and lifestyle changes.

What I loved about the book:

  1. Well structured writing: This book is cleverly divided into 26 chapters based on the alphabet with each celebrating a different aspect of minimalism. It is all about minimalism but never feels repetitive.
  2. Most of us can connect with it: You may be an entrepreneur, homemaker, student or a business tycoon, this book respects the differences in all our lives and the way it showcases minimalism, any or each one of us can embrace it with ease.
  3. Flexibility and alternatives: It is not just a set of rules but it gives you an insight and triggers a soul searching response. It is full of alternatives and open to your own additions.
  4. Simple and honest: It is simple in a pleasant way and gives positive vibes that you can do it too. You can feel the experiences and honesty behind the writing.
  5. It’s a quick read and a pleasant one. Hope you will love it too.

Verdict: 4.5/5. A must read…
