The leaf changing color through different seasons yet retaining its shape on the cover is a perfect depiction of the title, “The Sameness in a Consistent Change” It is a simple read which you can finish in a day’s worth of time with easy to understand language. The blurb is very descriptive and paints the picture of expectations you will have from the book. The character, Ramanuj, Pallavi, and Sharda are depicted in a straightforward but grand way. The title is very attractive and what made me read this one in first place. It is good for one time read and makes a good collectible for your kindle.
The wheel of time is a fascinating force. Sometimes it seems to only crawl along, while at other times it simply hustles. And when you tend to look behind, you expect that most puzzles would fall in place. But do they eventually? Ramanuj, a village boy is confused about most things. He shares a strange rapport with his father, who, despite financial issues doesn’t stall his education. But Ramanuj has no idea what to do with himself. Then one day things change and change permanently. There is no looking back from this bend; there cannot be. He meets Mr. Shrirangpure, through a chance meeting in a hospital through his daughter Pallavi. Something prompts him to appear more ambitious than he would like to have been. Impoverished and submissive, he manages to rise above the shackles with time, even though everything is still stuck to his past. But now he cannot get back. He doesn’t want to. Until a revelation, prompts him to go back to his roots again. To the same tree, with which he shares a bond; to the drain water, with which he has shared many a memory; and to the same surrounding, which formed his core once. This is a story of a boy who tried to end his life once. He loved as well and tried to rise to a level to become worthy of it. A boy, whose journey is all about mostly looking back. ‘The Sameness in a Consistent Change’ is a story of this interesting journey. A journey, devoid of a destination, perhaps. But the fun, sometimes, lies only in the journey.

Book: It’s Got to be Love
Author: Prashant Kaul
Dev wakes up in the middle of the night with a nightmare and chooses to ignore it. However, imagine the surprise when these nightmares actually come true. Dev, Vikram, Vaani, and Carol are the main characters of this story. The kind of love we know in college to the more modernized Facebook version is covered in the story. How does this love story evolve ahead? Read to find out.
The bright colors add a spark to the cover of the book. The story explores emotions closely related to love and infatuation. The blurb of the book gives a clear idea of what to expect out of the story. The story has much more potential to it than what is patriated. Dev’s ability could have made a more unique plot for the story to stand on. The journey of the emotion of love is depicted well. The writing and narration are simple and a bit dull. You may read this as a one-time read.

Book: Trade and Grow Rich
Author: Indrazith Shantharaj and Kirankumar Nayak
The cover of the book is very attractive with vibrant colors and reinforces the message to be conveyed. The tagline, “adventurous journey to successful trading” is shuttled across the book. A very practical approach with various examples from day-to-day life is explained by the authors who make the book easy to understand. This book will act as guiding source for those who are interested in gaining more insights to trading secrets. Although professional language is used, it is easy to understand. The use of charts is another aspect of the book which is appreciated. Although, I wouldn’t solely rely on the book as after all Share market can seldom be constant throughout. Take an informed decision always. However, the trade aspects which you need to know are described here.

Book: Never Been a Loved One
Author: Shivranjini Ramamurthy
Don’t we all crave for love in the end? Not all of us are fortunate enough to have experienced the love we deserve. Is it necessary for this situation to change? Does it have any effect on the way your life turns? A few questions will only get answered once you read the story of CK and Sara.
The cover page depicts an alone person, however, it could have been done more interestingly. The blurb lists down the background on which the book is based but doesn’t reveal exactly what to expect from the book. The story is much more than what is suggested from the blurb. The characters have evolved with every passing chapter. The narration of the plot is good and easy to follow. Overall, it is a story for the days when you laze around on your sofa with nothing else to do.
