Oh…
You cannot go without me!
I know you are tired, but come,
This is the way.
– Rumi


Maahi has lost her way. The tired, desperate young soul who remembers nothing except dying next to sea waves and a strange golden-haired man.

Veeru is a young, happy-go-lucky entrepreneur who creates www.marryAghost.com, and gets pulled into an adventure when Maahi registers as the first ‘ghost’.

Asmita Burman is an old, half-blind professor who finds Maahi inexplicably, can hear and see ghosts, and knows way too much about them.

And then there’s D’Mello, a five-hundred-year-old ghost of a Portuguese nobleman also searching for Maahi, mysteriously appearing and disappearing.

Who will help Maahi get freedom by finding her golden-haired beloved in fourteen days before she gets trapped on earth, maybe forever?

Join the age-old battle between good and evil – a race between time, freedom and love that will eventually put the entire world in danger.

I was approached by Share Books for an honest review about this book. The blurb of the book says this is a true story of a glamorous, stylish and fiercely ambitious Indian lass Moh lal Rai who has only one cherished desire, aspiration on her mind to become an internationally acclaimed avant-garde fashion designer. Destiny deceives Moh’s desires landing her in U. S. During her fashion show at Las Vegas she experiences violent vibrations followed by a thunderous broadcasting of her future “ Soon in 1997 you will meet your true eternal lover” on this earth…

Dragooned by powerful longing to meet her ancient lover she is now a solitary traveler of an abyss of unfathomable space and time where she is sent on a roller coaster ride to a bizarre realm of gonzo occurrences, happenings, visions, premonitions, divine visitations and startling revelations of her past birth. She involuntarily unravels the ancient most secret of the extinct cryptic writings of a new religion shrouded in the misty Himalayan valley. In a cruel game plan of higher she is compelled, controlled and commanded by a powerful goddess to become a Saint, a Guru, a Love Messiah and reveal the lost mystical secret to “ENTER THE UNKNOWN REALM” of true lovers, twin souls and split halves before “ The End of the world begins”.

  • ISBN:  978-1846044458
  • Genre: Non Fiction / Self help
  • Publishers: Random House
  • Price: Rs. 599/- (I got this book for review from the publisher)

This is the remarkable true story of a young man's initiation in the Himalayas. David Manners was trekking in Nepal when he stumbled upon the mountain home of a jhankri, or Nepalese shaman. The jhankri accepted David as his pupil, and so began the next stage of David's extraordinary journey, in which he embarked upon an adventure that was more challenging and, ultimately, life-affirming than anything he could have imagined. 

In Limitless Sky, David shares the wisdom and insights he learnt from those transformational days in the Himalayas. These include practical guidance on how to live a full and fearless life, how to find happiness and how to live in ways that nurture both ourselves and others. As David reveals, the life lessons he learned amongst the mountains of the Himalayas could benefit us all today.

Book Review: Bombay Stories by Saadat Hasan Manto

Introduction

  • ISBN: 978-0804170604
  • Genre: Fiction / Short Stories
  • Publishers: Random House
  • Price: Rs. 599/- (I got this book for review from the publisher)
Bombay in the 1930s and 1940s reigned as the undisputed cosmopolitan capital of the Subcontinent. Bombay Stories is a collection of Manto’s work from his years in the city. Freshly arrived in 1930s Mumbai, Manto saw a city like no other—an exhilarating hub of license and liberty, and a city bursting with both creative energy and helpless despondency. It was to be Manto’s favourite city, and he was among the first to write the Bombay characters we are now familiar with from countless stories and films—prostitutes, pimps, lowlifes, writers, intellectuals, aspiring film actors, thugs, conmen and crooks. His hard-edged, moving stories remain, a hundred years after his birth, startling and provocative?in searching out those forgotten by humanity, Manto wrote about what it means to be human. Matt Reeck and Aftab Ahmad’s translations reach into the streets and capture in contemporary, idiomatic English the feeling that Urdu’s most celebrated short-story writer’s work stories provide in the original.
