Book Review: Tarikshir The Awakening! By Khayaal Patel

Book Review: Tarikshir The Awakening! By Khayaal Patel


Hi Friends,

Today I would be reviewing another book by an Indian author Khayaal Patel. The name of the book is 'Tarikshir- The Awakening'.



Plot Summary: A small princely state of Rajasthan is the last bastion of resistance against the might of the British Empire. While unrest surrounding the sudden death of the king of Devangarh grows, young prince Rudra Pratap Chauhan prepares to ascend the throne. But the kingdom is in turmoil. The Devangarh army is outnumbered and the British forces are closing in. To make matters worse, Rudra discovers the king's death may not have been accidental after all. The frequent appearance and disappearance of a mysterious, masked stranger and a series of ritualistic murders in which the bodies have been drained of blood, spread panic across the realm. Who is this creature and how is he connected to all the strange occurrences? As Rudra struggles to manage his new responsibilities and investigate his father's death, he stumbles upon dark, dangerous secrets that will destroy everything he now holds together.



Published By: Westland Publications

Genre: Fiction

Language: English

No. Of Pages: 332

Price: Rs 399/-



My Review:

The plot is set in the Indian state of Rajasthan, when British rule was still persistent. The story revolves around a very powerful Rajput kingdom of Devangarh. The king is strictly against bowing down in front of Britishers like other neighboring kings.The protagonist of the story is Rudra, who is the prince of the kingdom and set to become the next king. The sudden death of the King shifts the whole responsibility of the kingdom to the young prince. What initially looked like a Fire accident eventually emerged like a planned murder of the king.

The language and the flow of the narration is very smooth. The writing style is very engaging and will keep the readers eager enough to turn pages. The plot keeps on building in a very systematic manner with no confusions. There is a nice blend of suspense, thrill, mystery, murder, history, fantasy, mythology.... Ending of the book is also quite nice.

There is a element of mythology in the story which I absolutely loved. There was a reference back to our very famous tale of Ramayana and characters like Hanuman, Lord Ram, Ravan etc

I love to read mythology fictions and this was surely a my kind of read. Enjoyed it thoroughly.  Fantasy lovers will love this book. Also this is kind of book you can carry while on holiday or travelling since it is not a very heavy weight story. Perfect for light read and for any age group.
Looking forward to read more of the Author Khayaal.

It is available on Amazon in Hard copy as well as Kindle edition..
Do Pick a copy for yourself!

Book Review: Inkredia - Luwan Of Brida! By Sarang Mahajan

Book Review: Inkredia - Luwan Of Brida! By Sarang Mahajan

Hello Lovely Readers,

How are you guys doing and what are you currently reading? I just finished reading a Fantasy Fiction 'Inkredia: Luwan Of Brida' By an Indian author Sarang Mahajan. This is the Book 1 in the series.

Plot Summary: A dangerous conspiracy begins to unfold, its first step: kill a simple, village boy named Luwan Of Brida. Hunted by a powerful enemy, Luwan sets out on a dangerous journey, clueless why a legendary force, aided by the darkest known demons, wants him dead.



Published By: Gloryburg Publishing

Genre: Fantasy Fiction

Language: English

No. Of Pages: 386

Price: Rs 345/-

About The Author: Sarang Mahajan is a novelist and a screen writer. An avid fan of fantasy and science fiction, most of his work belongs to these genres. While writing the four books in the Inkredia Series, he is also working on a science fiction series.

My Review: This is the book 1 in the Inkredia series. This books basically covers the introduction of the characters. Who is Luwan and about his village Brida. The story starts with Luwan Of Brida running away from the cruel Lord of his village Gruwak, since he has denied to pay the taxes.
But as Luwan starts his journey, he discovers that it is just not mere ordinary men who are following him, but rather much more powerful and dark forces. 



The book starts with a very pretty map illustration. I must say that when you read the book you can feel that the story is well thought and then all the characters are well build. I love the way how author has described all the characters in the story. Whether it is Luwan's sister or the deadly and killer Ghork Riders.



The journey starts with Luwan's first encounter with the very ghastly assassins Ghork Riders, who are appointed by someone to kill Luwan or Kidnap him. The way author has described them is really impressive, one can totally imagine them and feel how fatal & cruel they are.
My favorite character in the story was Kiliarn, who is their guide and help in the whole runaway.

The story has all the aspects which should be in a good fantasy story like evil and strange creatures, magic, time travel, magical pendents, magical weapons etc



Although, I totally loved the book and the story but the only negative for me was the running part or the journey part seems to be a bit dragged at times. Running away from the Ghork Riders and then again encountering them, then again fighting and running and again encountering them and so on. At last it just felt a bit repetitive to me.
Having said that, do not leave the book in between since the best part of this book is the ending and the suspense. It was totally unexpected. Full marks to the author, could not guess that coming!

The narration style of the author is very engaging and yet in a simple language.
Overall it is a nice fantasy book, if you are lover of Fantasy stories, you will surely enjoy!
I look forward to the next part of this series and see how actually story and characters develop. I surely expect much more magic and drama in the next one!!!!! :)

Review Of Meera Herbal Hair Oil

Review Of Meera Herbal Hair Oil:

Hello Friends,

Hope everyone is doing great. I am back with an another review of a beauty product. The product I would be talking about today is a Hair care product from an Indian brand 'Meera'.

You guys might have spotted brand Meera's hair oil or shampoo at one or the other supermarkets. It is quite a regular brand in the Indian market now, which have herbal beauty care products.
Today's review product is Meera Herbal Hair Oil, which is primarily for controlling hair fall.



About the Product:
  • Meera is a brand manufactured by CavinKare
  • This oil contains 4 nourishing oils- Ylang Ylang oil, Rosemary oil, Coconut oil and Sesame oil.
  • Other Ingredients include Curry Leaves, Black Cumin, Brahmi, Bringharaja, Amla, Hibiscus & Henna.
  • This hair oil is mainly to control Hair Fall and promotes Hair Growth.
  • Manufactured in India
  • Retails for Rs 45/- for 75 ml.
  • Easily available 
  • Affordable
My Review:

Oiling our hairs once a week is nothing new for an Indian women. We all girls have been doing this since we were small kids...Oiling our hairs regularly have always been a very important hair care step, in almost all Indian households. Regular hair oiling not only keep hairs nourished but also promotes hair growth. Also, I have noticed that if I keep following my once a week oiling routine, I need to use much less amount of conditioner after every hair wash.

I generally like to use Coconut oil or Amla oil for my regular oiling. Recently, I have been adding Rosemary essential oil, in my oil which helps to take care of my hair fall problem.
So, when I got a chance to try this one from Meera, I immediately checked the ingredients list and it does have all of my favorite hair ingredients, like Rosemary essential oil, Coconut oil, Curry leaves, Amla etc.



The smell of this hair oil is like a very regular herbal oil. The texture is neither too thick nor runny. It gets absorbed into hairs very easily and also gets washed away nicely during hair wash. Some of the herbal hair oils are too thick and also does not get clean easily after shampooing your hairs. This is something I really feel very annoying at times. But with this Meera oil, I did not face such problem. It is quite comfortable.



With all the nice ingredients, it will surely enhance overall health of your hairs not just control hair fall issue. Although the presence of Rosemary essential oil do help in somewhat controlling it. Having said that, to get the desired from any of the skin\hair care product, one needs to use it regularly and just not try couple of times.

Overall it is a great option for a regular use. I would highly recommend it. It is affordable and easily available. This should definitely be part of your regular beauty regime. It is a great hair care product.
Meera also have some other very interesting herbal hair care products like Shampoo, Hair wash, Coconut oil etc. You can try those as well!

Trying Out Some Exquisite Munnar Tea! - 'Ripple'

Trying Out Some Exquisite Munnar Tea! - 'Ripple'

Hi Friends,

Tea is one of the most loved beverages across the world.
Are you also a Tea lover like me? If yes then I am sure you might have heard about the very famous Munnar Tea. Munnar is a hill station situated in Kerela, India and famous for its Tea plantations and manufacturing.

Today I would be sharing my experience about trying tea from one of such Brand 'Ripple' from Munnar, Kerela (India)

'Ripple' is the name of the Brand of the Kanan Devan Hills Plantations Company Pvt Ltd. Kanan Devan Hills Plantation Company is the first ever employee owned plantation company in India, and also the largest producer of Tea in south India, producing over 24 million Kgs of garden fresh teas, complying to the latest Food Safety Standards.
Here is the link to their website: https://shop.kdhptea.com/



I personally have visited their huge tea plantations and manufacturing unit while my visit to Munnar. It is considered as one of the 'Go To' tourist spots there. They offers a large variety of Teas to choose from. You can taste them there and purchase whatever you like. Munnar is the best place to buy tea and not to mention its spectacular scenic beauty. You can also buy their products directly from their website

Today I have two of their variants for review:
  1. Ripple Premium Leaf Tea
  2. Ripple Classic Green Tea
1. Ripple Premium Leaf Tea: This one is the very basic daily tea, like the one we have with milk in the morning. It has a very fresh aroma. You will not be needing too much of it to get the proper color of the tea. It retails for Rs 90/- for 250 grams of product. I am continuously using it from last one week and have finished half of the packet already. Every one in my home loves its flavor. It is neither too black and dark nor too mild. It is just perfect. If you like to have that normal milk tea then definitely you will love this one.






2.Ripple Classic Green Tea: We all know green tea and their never ending health benefits. The one I have is the Classic green Tea. This is not in the powder form, rather this is in the form of dried leaves. I loved the quality of this one. It feels so authentic and feels coming directly from the origin. I generally have it without sugar. Green tea is known to be rich in Polyphenols, that impart a unique flavor and aroma. This tea comes in a very nice tin jar, which is reusable once your tea is finished. Pricing is Rs 350/- for 50 grams of product. This is the kind of tea which will immediately wake you up in the morning. Shelf Life is 12 months.







On their website, you can order some really interesting Tea variants like White Tea, Lemon Tea, Green Peach Ice Tea, Rose flavored Tea and many more. You can also find Coffee and even chocolates on it. They do have some offers going on from time to time.
So, I would highly recommend this Brand, if you are a true Tea lover. Just order from their website https://shop.kdhptea.com/
 and enjoy the flavors sitting in your home, all the way from hills. They have a unique freshness in their Tea.
