He first quit his railway job to join a government company and then quit government job to join private sector. Eventually, he quit the private sector also and became an entrepreneur. He started writing his memoirs on social media, when he realised that people from middle class India still faces the dilemmas that he faced during his journey of life.

I really liked the way author has shared his journey of life as a common man..
Being born in a middle class family in India comes with a lot of expectations. In the time author was born, mostly career was chosen by the family. A kid simply has to follow a life path pre decided for him..But what if someone wants something else ?
Will a common man in India will always be a part of the crowd and follow pre decided destiny..Or is it in the hands of a common man to make his life uncommon...
Book is like his diary full of his memories from different stages of his life...Childhood, teenager, starting of his career..
Author has made a very honest attempt and kept the details and experiences realistic.
People who belong to the same group will even enjoy it more.
A nice read!

Book Review: The Girl With Blue Eyes By Vaiibhav Nigam

Book Review: The Girl With Blue Eyes By Vaiibhav Nigam

Hello Readers,

Hope everyone is doing great. Today's review is about a book, which is a romantic thriller.
The name of the book is 'The Girl With Blue Eyes' by an Indian author Vaiibhav Nigam.

Plot Summary: It was love at first sight for Armaan when he saw Tanisha.Despite being exact opposites of each other, they manage to keep their relationship alive. Unfortunately, things do not go as planned and they develop compatibilty issues.
In an unexpected turn of events, he comes upon an accident. Though he survives, the faint memory of a striking face with blue eyes flashed right before he collapsed and the accident haunts him forever.
Months later, Armaan has a chance to encounter with the same 'Girl with Blue Eyes' and unknowingly, he is lured into an affair he cannot deny! While he makes all the attempts to hide this from Tanisha, things start to get out-of-control as he is now in a dual relationship. As events unfold, he realizes this mysterious 'Girl with Blue Eyes' comes with a lot of surprises.
Must this 'Girl with Blue Eyes' rake up his ordinary world?

Genre: Fiction

Language: English

Format: Paperback

No. Of Pages: 203

Price: Rs 225/-

About The Author: Vaiibhav Nigam is an author and a speaker. When it comes to writing he likes to write engaging romantic thrillers that keeps the readers at the edge of their seats. He believes that everything has a story if we really pay attention.

My Review: The Prologue of the book is really interesting and a little different. It will surely make you turn the pages instantly.

It is a romantic thriller but with lots of twists and turns, which makes it different from the regular romantic books.

The protaganist Armaan falls in love with Tanisha right away the first time he saw her. Feelings started to develop and very soon they were in a relationship. Tanisha seems to be a perfect girl for him, decent, shy and stable.
His destiny took a sharp turn when he met with an accident and before he zoned out, a woman's face with Blue eyes flashed right before him whom he does not know.

Things started to get normal, but then suddendly one day at mall he spotted that same girl with those Blue eyes whom he saw in his accident. She was Rutvi and she was exactly opposite of Tanisha. Rutvi was bold, confident and attractive. Very soon Armaan and Rutvi become friends and were having an affair..

So, you need to read the book further to know why Armaan cheated on his girlfriend Tanisha. Did he got caught? Will he regret his decision to have a relationship with Rutvi...And why did he saw her at the time of his accident just before collapsing.. Who actually is Rutvi??
The book is a ride with suspense..

The language is pretty simple. For me personally it was an average read.
The ending of the book is really interesting and full of mystery.
Good one time read. Definitely a Fast read.

Book Review: The Ramayana Secret By Anurag Chandra

Book Review: The Ramayana Secret By Anurag Chandra

Hi Friends!

I am back with yet another book review by an Indian author Anurag Chandra.
The name of the book is 'The Ramayana Secret' and it is a mythology fiction.
"The Ramayana Secret is Rama's story, not as you know it but as it happened"

Plot Summary: Ravana has jeopardised the peaceful co- existence of the inner and outer Earths. The divine scripts are in his custody and the demon king is invincible. Rama is tasked with the secret mission of securing the scripts and handing them back to their rightful owners. Assuming the identity of Dasharatha's son, Rama prepares for battle, aided by emissaries from the inner Earth kingdom of Agartha and sages residing in Dandaka.
Will this alliance between the kingdom of Agartha and Kosala save humanity from an impending disaster? Why is Rama real identity kept a secret? Who has decided to reveal the secret about Rama's origins and Why? Was Sita the real reason Rama fought against Ravana?

Genre:Fiction\ Mythology

Language: English

No. Of Pages: 215

Price: Rs 295/-

Publisher: Om Books International

Format: Paperback

About The Author: Anurag Chandra is a New Delhi based serial entrepreneur, educator and author with a Bachelor's degree in engineering from IIT Kanpur. After a brief stint as a software consultant in New York, he started his own educational venture, Eduwiser to create content for competitive test preparations. He has also been featured in India Today for his entrepreneurial work.
Anurag considers writing therapeutic as it transports him to an imaginative world filled with myriad characters. The Ramayana Secret marks his foray into fiction.

Review: Mythology Fictions have always been one of my favourite genre to read. The book's name is The Ramayana Secret and as the title suggests, it definitely fits perfect into the category.

Starting with the book cover, it looked pretty average to me, nothing too intriguing. I seriously think that something more could have been added to it, to make it look more magical and inviting.

That being said about the first impression of the book cover, the first few pages of the book made me fall in love with the story immediately. Obviously it is a story about Lord Ram and our very own oldest Indian tale Ramayana. But the author has told the story of Ramayana, from all together different angle.
All the characters are definitely picked up from the Ramayana story we have always heard, but the plot build up is very unique and innovative. There are lots of twists and turns in the story. There are many surprises for the readers because since it is Ramayana, we tend to expect somethings as we have always heard. So, that makes the whole reading experience very interesting.

I liked the concept of the inner and outer earth. How Ram belonged to a different world and was sent on a secret mission with a cover up identity and a plan. Why Sita was kidnapped by the Lankan King Ravana is also quite interesting. The book covers a whole story about how Ravana overtook Lanka and became its king. Why is he so powerful!! Was Sita a sole purpose of the war between Rama and Ravana.....

The first half of the book is very fast and every page brings something new, while the second half of the book is comparatively slower.
The book depicts the Family Tree of Kosala, Videha and Anga Kingdoms and Family tree of Lankans in the form of flowchart in the beginning of the book.

I would highly recommend this book to all the fiction lovers since the plot is very imaginative and interesting.  I loved reading it and look forward more from the author.
