Utmost Feelings – Anthology

I’m ecstatically happy to share with you the news that an anthology that I’m a part of, “Utmost Feelings” with the theme ‘Love’, has been released.

It’s been exactly a month today since the launch (29th June 2021). But, I wanted to share this news only after I received a paperback copy. The delivery was a mess, unfortunately, and I got my copy only a couple of days ago and hence the delay in the announcement.

Attached with bittersweet memories, this book will always remain special. Astha, the girl who initiated the process of compiling this book is no more with us. Today marks the end of three months since her demise. But still, the legacy of her dream lingers in each word that the book holds. I heartily appreciate the efforts of True Dreamster, the publisher, who took Astha’s wish forward and presented this bouquet of love to her family as a tribute.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to every person who’s a part of this wonderful project and all supporters.

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child


  • Save some tears before getting into Hogwarts now. You’ll most probably cry at the end for ruining your childhood or teen memories.
  • Spoilers Ahead! (They may not be in order, though.)

Forget the playful Harry you have in mind. Now, try imagining him as an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic and the father of three school-going children. Initially, even doing this seemed quite difficult for me but was also slightly convincing that muggles aren’t the only species who are overworked. All our wizards from the original Harry Potter (HP) series are very well placed in their professional sphere.

The book starts with the elucidation of the stranded father-son relationship between Potter and his second son, Albus. Continue reading

Sila Nerangalil Sila Manithargal

‘Sila Nerangalil Sila Manithargal’ is a Tamil ‘Sahitya Akademi’ award-winning novel, writen by Jeyakanthan in 1970. The title of the book literally translates to ‘Some people at some times’. ‘Of Men and Moments’ is an English translation of this book by K.S Subramanian.

To start with, the novel is not any extraordinary story. It captures the chequered life of Ganga, the protagonist. Stumbling into sex with a millionaire playboy as an innocent teenager, she is disowned by her family. A benevolent maternal uncle shelters and educates her in a different city. He’s erudite but lecherous. She becomes a higher official in a respectable job when the man of her life (Prabhu) re-enters, now with added dignity.

Can you even imagine a relationship between a victim and her rapist? Continue reading

Quotes That I Love

It has been a while since our last post. Both Anisha and I have been a bit busy with our final semester. But now, the holidays have begun and its time for celebration. I am going to clear off a lot of books from my to read list. To embark on this magnificent celebration,  I would like to show some of my favourite quotes.

This quote is to remind us that everyone has a destiny,

Boy: But what if I can’t?
Alchemist: Then you’ll die in the midst of realizing your destiny.that’s a lot better than dying like millions of other people, who never even knew what their destinies were.–” 🙂
Paulo Coelho, “The Alchemist” 

This line portrays a woman as an unstoppable force, something complex,

“So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.”

Perfect Girl

Re-reading something I love…

Haruki Murakami holds the power to enthrall me with his words.

Just by using a simple, sentence he transports his readers to a completely new dimension. Obsession isn’t a strong enough word to explain what I feel about his writing . Since my exams are over, I decided to relax by re-reading a few of his works. It still gets to me like the first time. Maybe he holds magic in his pen. A web that pulls me in like a whirlpool into  an unending abyss .

I was reading his short story about how he met his 100 percent perfect girl. I love the way he describes her.

Just perfect.

He doesn’t remember how her nose looks, he doesn’t say that she was an extraordinary beauty, just that she was perfect for him. Continue reading
