The Woman Who Saw The Future : Book Review


Book: The Woman Who Saw The Future
Author: Amit Sharma
Click here to purchase this book on Amazon


Review:
The story revolves around Sapna who has been blessed with the ability to see the future. Reluctant to believe her at first, people finally come an inch closer to believing when Sapna uses this ability to save Kabir, a very well known business tycoon. Kabir offers Sapna to collaborate for a TV Show to make good use of her future-seeing abilities. This acts as the turning point for Sapna and those who relate to her for better or for worse is for you to find out once you get your hands on this book.

To read or not to read:
The plot line is unique and written in a simple language. The main character development is beautifully portrayed as we see Sapna transform herself from a mere next door college kid to a superwoman. The narration style of showing the story through various perspectives puts together the entire plot. However, as we proceed further into the book, the end gets a bit predictable. The final few chapters could have avoided spilling out extra information which elongated the story. The supporting characters have also been depicted in a good manner. Your weekends will be sorted with this one in your hand. The story grows on you eventually and you feel the characters crawl into scenes!

Grief of Nature




Let them remain closed and stay blurred…
Be unknown to this mundane world.

For once when they open the gateway to universe…
They will destroy this insane world whole.

People discriminate,
On every possible grounds, they hate.

Anything that is different is bad…
This seems to be the latest fad.

The nature around is reduced to mere percentage on map…
Care, love, and peace has been scrapped.

‘What we were’ is long-lost…
‘What have we come to’ at what cost.

Multiplying in numbers, increasing the burden…
Intelligence, however, diminishes with every second gone.

Be it water or air, pollution has left its mark everywhere…
Soil, noise, and radioactive, have also got included. 

Tremendous crowd, triples the load on transportation…
Yet, cars and bikes are trending over all the nation.

Hate is the new thing, spreading like a virus…
Killing humanity and creating a new kind of monster.

We have no time to find peace…
Curiosity has killed the cat, humanity ceased.

Paper money is all that we think of…
Without it the world would go blank.

Envious of men, who dwelled times ago…
Who had no stress, no tension, but everywhere to go.

Although the world is more known and knowledgeable…
Lost is the art of life which leads a meaningful abode. 

Animals are meant to be out in wild…
Men invaded their homes, put them in cages piled.

Why should they not destroy you?
When it was their shelter you wrecked. 

Religion and castes, are just different modes to find the same way…
Used now as reason to discriminate and swords which slay.

Classifications based on caste, creed, color, height and race...
To the extent that even stone man is divided into ages. 

Motivational speakers, talks, and deliverables…
Where are the men, who were born with inbuilt mechanisms?

Gratitude and grace are no longer sought…
Running circles for materialistic things, everyone is taught.

This world was a peaceful and better place…
Until Men came and ruined its pace.

How long will this torture sustain?
Mother Nature will surely soon give away. 

As long as her eyes are closed, men, you shall dwell…
For once they open, you shall not be spared.

Volcanoes will erupt, oceans will run over land…
Earthquakes in thousands will shake the foundations manned.

Thunders and storms, twisters and cyclones haze…
Who will save men, from such ferocious cage?

Run, men, run, but where to…
Where will you hide to escape Nature’s rage?

The mountains will collapse soon from a height great…
What are your plans to elude cracks on Earth’s plate?

Solace, men shall seek then…
But find none and face the pain.

Men, you have had your time…
And everything that you have lived for will go vain.

Will it matter then, the length of your hair,
Branded clothes or about Mercedes, you will care?  

Money shall help you not, nor keep you safe…
Everything will be destroyed until mother feels herself *rafe.

You have used her, torn her open, added weights for a good measure…
Greenery gone, concrete jungles installed, played with her natural resource.

The demolishers of Mother Nature will suffer this fate…
Those who passively helped, will go at same rate.

So, let them remain closed and stay blurred…
Be unknown to this mundane world.

For once when they open the gateway to universe…
They will destroy this insane world whole.


*In Hebrew the meaning of Rafe is derived from Rafael 'God has healed’

Book Review: Murderous Greed




Book: Murderous Greed
Author: Arun K Nair

Review:

Avadi is a town situated in Chennai, which has not seen a tint of murder for years. This same township bears witness to double murders. First one is a housewife, Kanaga, headed to attend a family function while other is Karthik, young, handsome businessman. It is the responsibility of Inspector Satyajit to solve these murders and find the links in case of possible connections between the two. As Satyajit starts digging into these double murders, everything starts getting foggier. Will Satyajit be able to solve the mystery with limited clues and much larger, secret force in the cue? Read ‘Murderous Greed’ to find out.

The book sticks to the plot line right from line one and maintains the composure throughout only to reveal the truths towards the end. The plot intensifies as the story progresses with an introduction of various leads which the reader will not be able to guess the slightest.

To Read or Not To Read:

Mysteries always make a great read as they keep you on your toes throughout the journey. If you are an avid reader of this genre, you will surely appreciate the plot of this book. Author Arun Nair plans on releasing the continuation of this book by 2018 giving us chance to see Inspector Satyajit back in action.
