Inspiration – Skin Cells

Two days back, someone in a WhatsApp group of Elite people asked me what inspires me?

I replied saying the little ants, the beggar, the vegetable vendor ,a thief , a disabled person and many more always inspire me.

Everyone applauded me and I felt good ☺️

Yesterday some where at 3 P.M, I was feeling hungry and found apples in the fridge. I took out an apple, cut it into pieces. I didn’t notice that I had cut a finger of my right hand a little. Only after an hour it started pricking and I realised what happened. As usual I dint apply any ointment 😹

Today morning while watching TV and chatting with friends on WhatsApp, the finger pained a little. I checked the cut. I could it see it started healing. 

Then.. I looked at it very keenly and visualised how, many cells in the body of the skin are working perfectly on time atevery second of my life. And with my carelessness, I created an obstacle to which I suffered pain. But, the cells and the skin are so good enough to that they never stopped working and as a result my cut is getting healed.

That minute cells taught me a lesson. 

Don’t look outside for inspiration. It’s very much present inside you….!!!!

I wear the smile you gave

I wear the smile you gave

Book Title: I wear the smile you gave
Author:  Shwetha Shah
Format:  Paper Back
Total Number of Pages: 204
Publisher:  Blue Rose Publishers
Publishing Date:  4th Sept 2017
Printed Price: INR  199
ISBN-10: 9386673932
ISBN-13: 978-9386673930

Book Title:
The title of the book ‘ I wear the smile you gave’ is unique as the length is long. Though long, it gives the user a hint that this would be a story of emotions maybe a love story too!

Book Cover :
The book cover is also interesting as the title and is also quite confusing. The user may get confused as there are two images where one is a boy and girl holding their hands in vows exchange and the other is a little girl following her dad’s footsteps. Both the images have profound emotions and meanings deep inside.

Plot:
Not every love story is a coochie-coo typed story, not every love story ends with a cake and a rose bouquet on valentine’s day and not every love story is as matured. Somewhere in the middle of these categories, this story makes its place where very small emotions are being portrayed beautifully.

The story has emotions of all kinds. The story makes the book more sweet and beautiful with the addition of some really amazing life loving moments. There are some incidents in the story, where the tough decisions and moments of life which really cost a lot of mental pressure are nicely written.

Characters:
All the characters are very well designed and plotted.

Narration:
The narration of the story is interesting.

Language and Vocabulary:
The language, grammar and vocabulary are worth mentioning with a applause.

My Final Verdict—
A worth reading new age love story!

Book Title:
The title of the book ‘ Kansa’  gives the reader a hint that the book is going to be a crime plotted story.

Book Cover :
The book cover is good, blended with a image in black and brown shades setting the mood of a reader.

Plot:
Always and always the concept of fiction added with a flavor of characters from the history or mythology is very novel. The mere concept of reincarnation itself is self gripping and very interesting

If all these elements are perfectly collaborated in a package that turns out to be superb mystery thriller, it’s like icing on the cake. It’s also very hard for an author to maintain the same intensity in a thriller story to keep the reader engaged till the end. Here, author has been fully successful.

The swift flow of the story from the initial point of the plot till the end in this part of the series is very commendable. The twists and turns are absolutely astonishing.

Sappy’s Tiny Tales #9

************************************************Sappy’s Tiny Tales#9**************

****************************************

It was a nice chilly evening. The cool breeze was flowing around the garden. The little rose bud was feeling so nice. It tried to cover itself with the newly formed petals against the wind. She was feeling cold.

A strong hand clasped her, held tightly and she was choking. She had no idea what was going on. She was in a state of surprise and shock. She then wept for help. She realised she was alone. The bud was plucked off.

On the next day, in the headlines, the news article “a baby girl of 11 months was brutally molested and raped” was scrolling around in the TV. She looked at her daughter.

She then decided that she would herself monitor her child, drop her to the school and pick her up from there.

Atrocity at it’s bloody peaks !

Book Title:
The title of the book ‘ Once upon a genie’  looks like a fantasy  fiction story name.

Plot:
There are books with good plots that are based upon the story about past, history and the present times. For a book reader, always a historical fiction appeals the mind. Such is the case with this book.

The story from a place where the ancient civilization started till a place where generally people in India believe to rest their lives in, is very interesting. The concept of a the almighty or the supreme power or simple God is very well sculpted. The plot travels from one to place to another and the reader might be well taken aback at certain spots in the plot.

Two stories running in parallel without any flaw is the best point in this book. The author has shown a well balanced approach in handling the plot very efficiently giving a very less scope for the reader to be confused.

All the characters are very well placed, scripted and plotted.

***********Sappy’s Tiny Tales #8*******
**************************************

She rose in the seat after hearing the flight announcement. She gazed at the entrance once again before going inside. There was no clue about him. She wiped her tears and boarded the flight.

It’s the 10th year she came to the place where they both first met. Their first meeting was at the airport and thus every year she chose to wait at the same place where saw him first at the airport on the same day, a decade back.

Life was not the same after she met him back then. She promised him she will move on but it wasn’t easy for her. He was practical and thus though had feelings for her, he moved on.

Back at home she was making coffee for her and her husband, when he held her hand and asked not to worry..next time he would definitely come .

She turned on her laptop and played the movie which was her ‘HIS’ first movie. She felt happy and contented, saw his name in the titles and closed the laptop.

She shut her feelings for the nth time.

She checked the calendar for next year and decided which flight to book.

Yes…some feelings look foolish. But that foolishness has innocence and pure emotions!

Book Title:
The title of the book ‘ Oz and Pluto – The Two Legendary Warriors ‘ is a very interesting title and suggests the reader that the book is going to be a war fare styled one.

Book Cover :
The book cover is a subtle one with rustic color with an image of a fort depicting the rise and fall of an empire. The fort in the image is of European style and gives a mood of that era while reading the book.

Plot:
Since the beginning of the human life from stone age, there has always been a battle between good and evil. As the ages passed, the concept of God and Satan came into existence. It’s said that God if on the good side and Satan on the evil’s. Thus, fights between humans who support God(Good) and Satan(Evil) started flaring. This contradiction started between fewer people and within no time was initiated between regions and thus kingdoms.

Such is the plot of the story, where for the survival after the mishaps created by the nature is the main essence. It’s a common practice that common look up to a leader to take control on the situations and thus the first protagonist shapes up in the plot. As the story progresses, another important character who can be pointed as the second protagonist arises.

Two supreme heroes fighting against the evil forces to save the human kind with many changes that erupt socially, economically and geographically between the kingdoms is what the plot is about.

It is not an exaggeration, but the author is to be well appreciated for taking up such story line!

Characters:
All the characters are very well placed, scripted and plotted.

Narration:
The narration is good and gripping

Language and Vocabulary:
The language, grammar and vocabulary is very nice. The font of the story could have been a little small in size.
My Final Verdict—
A new attempt. A new type story. A new plot that makes the reader think if there is a different universe or world!!!

The lights sparked. 
The sweets were savoried.
The wishes poured.

Far across the street, the little boy was having fun. He played around the street with his new gun. He lighted rockets and blasted bombs. He was all happy!

Far across the border, the father was facing the war. He moved across the lines with his bullet filled gun. He diffused bombs and was helping the wounded soldier.

The boy wished his father ‘Happy Diwali’ raising his head up into the sky. The father looked up into the sky and bid goodbye to his son.
