Book Review: Sniper's Eye By Mainak Dhar

Hello Lovely Readers!

Today's book review is about a book named Sniper's Eye by an Indian author Mainak Dhar.



Plot Summary: I was out on a date. Everything was perfect... Till that shot...a high- calibre one, no apparent sound. And, the man in front of me fell. A rifle with a suppressor. A sniper in the middle of a Mumbai mall..As the body count mounted, I was soon sucked deeper into the chaos unleashed by that shot. To survive and save those whom I care about, I have to become the man I left behind. I have no choice but to tap into a bloody past that has put me on the terror kill list. I may also have no option but to join hands with the sniper terrorizing Mumbai.
The problem is that the man has sworn to kill me.In a world where the young and poor kill and die in conflicts started by the old and rich, I and my unlikely companion finally discover the thin line that separates a mere killer from a hero.

Genre: Thriller Fiction

Language: English

No. Of Pages: 224

Price: Rs 299/-

About The Author: Mainak Dhar is an alumnus of IIM, Ahmadabad and has spent more than two decades in the corporate sector. A self described cubicle dweller by day and writer by night, Mainak is also the author of over a dozen books, some of which have been bestsellers in India and abroad.



My Review:
It is a nice suspense thriller. The story revolves around a man named as Aaditya, who is an ex army officer and had quite a controversial past there. He has now moved on with his life as a civilian with his girlfriend Zoya.. His past in army is something which he did not want to talk about now, in his new life. However, once he was in mall with his girlfriend, there was a sniper attack and the man was shot dead in front of him. As an ex army officer instinct, he just ran to catch the snipers in the opposite building. This all got him involved in the whole game of continuous attacks in the next few days and ultimately he himself too ended up in the hit list of the enemy..... So, the story is about why is he in the 'To be dead' list of the enemies? How will he save himself? Does this has something to do with his scandalous past in army?

The story moves very fast and does not feel boring or slow. Whole of the story basically revolves around Aaditya. The language used is pretty simple. No complex story line or heavy jargons.
It does involve a highly sensitive area\topic for India that is relationship between India and Pakistan and the terrorism!!
It shows how media can be manipulative and far from reality and how does the corruption works among people sitting on the powerful positions.

Overall it was an average read for me as a fiction thriller. It was not boring at all but was not too exciting for me personally. If you like these kind of thriller suspense, here is the link for you guys to buy this one :)

Book Review: The Sun Shines Down By Sankha Ghosh

Book Review: The Sun Shines Down By Sankha Ghosh

Hello Lovely Readers,

I am back with an another book review. The book I would be reviewing today is slightly different from the kind of books I usually read and review. Although this one is also Fiction Thriller but the story line is related to Politics.
The name of the book is 'The Sun Shines Down' By an Indian author Sankha Ghosh.






Plot Summary: Shreya Basu is a kind of politician India has hardly ever witnessed and that too from a political party which has been suffering from an existential crisis for last few years. With an impeccable beauty and excellent oratory skill, Shreya Basu's shot to fame is no less than a fairy tale. But now she wishes to contest election with a powerful incumbent government at their own bastion. But little did she know about the dirty inlands of this murky game of politics. And, in this topsy- turvy ride to power, she came across the enigmatic Hector Fernandez. Obscured by thousands of unanswered questions, Hector Fernanadez is haunted by the ghosts of his past. And, to put them to rest, he wants one single thing, Vengeance. And, when Shreya's seamless ambition to acquire power meets Hector's hate- filled stigma of retribution, it wreaks war.
Unmasking the gloomy secrets all the way from the manipulative political lobbyists to the leaden secrets of media-mafia, from the shady by lanes of Mumbai to the precarious land of Balochistan- the duo challenges the power- barons inviting the threats they barely anticipated to come their way. But even the duo's infallible tactics may not be enough to save their goals, or themselves, from succumbing to their nemesis.



Published By: Hawakal Publishers

Genre: Fiction Thriller

Language: English

No. Of Pages: 139

Price: Rs 250/-

About The Author: Sankha Ghosh is a banker by day and writer by night. Starting off as an environmental activist with an international foundation, he eventually got into the exciting industry of banking. An avid observer, an alternate thinker, and strictly opinionated, his writings have been published in several national and international blogs.



My Review:
This book will be a nice read for all those people who love to read stories revolving around politics especially Indian politics. The story line is not at all complex and is very fluid and clear.
The book has 139 pages which means it is a very fast read and you can easily finish it in a couple of days. These types of books are great to travel with since these are light read.

The story starts with the Junaid Ahmed who was preparing and appeared for the State Service Commission examination. He was mysteriously murdered when he came to know about the whole corruption and system of exchange of money for getting a seat in the SSC passing list. He wanted to expose the scam but was murdered. His brother Faiz wanted to take revenge for his innocent dead brother, but he was also tortured and threatened to keep quiet.

The main protagonist Shreya Basu is an epitome of what today's women should be! She is a beauty with brains and in Indian politics. She shot to fame in no time and very soon was running in the race of the next potential Chief minister.. The story continues with how her whole campaign was designed by appointing best of the best people to win the heart of the masses.
The another main character is Hector Fernandez, who has had a lot in his past and has quite twists and turns in his life..

Make sure to read the book to know how the two parallel stories progress and end. What happened to Shreya Basu's political career.Will she succeed? A glimpse of our current Indian politics...

Overall I would say the author has done a nice job with just 139 pages since the story or the characters never felt incomplete. A nice attempt with a different story!

A nice one time read! :-)

Sirona Feminine Pain Relief Patch

Sirona Feminine Pain Relief Patch

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Very recently I got introduced to a very innovative and a super useful product for us women!
Having little discomfort during our monthly cycle is quite common but some women do have to go through bad cramps during their periods. As a result, it does affect our daily routine during those days and make us feel irritated and tired..
The product I am talking about is 'Feminine Pain Relief Patch' from 'Sirona - The Celtic Goddess Of Hygiene'.



About Sirona: Pain Relief  Patches are 100% herbal patches and are a must have for women during those monthly troublesome days. A simple formula, it relaxes the muscle and provides discreet, continuous and non messy relief from pain and muscle cramps.

Features:
  • Contains Menthol to provide cooling relief from cramps during periods
  • Upto 12 Hour Relief
  • 100% Herbal
  • Instant Relief
  • No Side Effects
  • Can be used during nights
  • Shelf Life of 3 years
  • Affordable
This pack contains 5 patches. I have never used such product before and was not sure how it will feel on my skin and whether it works or not. But since it was something which was 100% herbal with no side effects, I thought of giving it a try!


The quality of the patch is quite thick like a bandage and not flimsy. The quality is very good. It is glued properly and sticks on the skin very comfortably. I used it for about 3-4 hours and did not felt any itchiness or stiffness around that area.
However, if I come to the actual performance of the these Pain Relief Patches, these are definitely no magic!
Once you put them on, after around 4-5 minutes you will start feeling a mild cooling sensation due to the presence of Menthol in it. It does help to relax tension in the muscles and to get instant relief.
But if you are someone who often get strong period cramps, then these might be not much of a use. It has a very mild affect and does not take away the muscular pain completely.
So, ladies for me the affect of these patches was average, not too great during strong period cramps, however, it did provide a little relaxing feel to the muscles!
I do like the concept that these are 100% natural and safe to use. I will be providing the links to buy this in case you are interested.

Bella Perfecta Ultra Sanitary Pads!

Bella Perfecta Ultra Sanitary Pads!


Hello Lovely Ladies!

Topic of today's article is one of the most important aspect of every female's life..that is PERIODS!!
It used to be a taboo topic from many decades, but now thankfully there is much more awareness and much less awkwardness related to Women Hygiene and Menstruation...
Once you hear the word periods, the first thing that comes to mind are Sanitary Pads..

Today I would be talking about a newly launched range of sanitary pads from the brand 'Bella'
Bella is a well known brand of female hygiene products from over 65 years of experience.Bella products cover 80 countries in the world and 6 continents.They have a wide range of products and recently they have launched a new range of Sanitary Pads to suit everyone needs.



I have all four of their variants. These are:
  1. Perfecta Ultra Maxi Blue- Extra Soft: Rs 79/-
  2. Perfecta Ultra Maxi Green - Silky Drai: Rs 79/-
  3. Perfecta Ultra Night- Extra Soft: Rs 85/-
  4. Perfecta Ultra Night- Silky Drai: Rs 85/- 

Here is the unboxing video:



The first two are for Day Usage and the next two are specifically meant for Night Time usage.

Extra Soft Range is 
  • Breathable 
  • No Perfume
  • Magic Gel
  • Odour Stop
  • Latex Free
  • SEP System for extra protection
  • 2 mm 
  • With Wings


Silky Drai Range is
  • Breathable
  • No Perfume
  • 2 mm
  • Magic Gel
  • Odour Stop
  • SEP System for extra protection
  • Latex Free
  • With Wings
  • Suitable for heavy flow


I have used them and would highly like to recommend these sanitary pads. These are very comfortable to wear. No itching or harsh on skin. These pads feel very gentle on skin and has a good absorbing power. It is great that these has a variant specifically meant for night.One can easily choose according to the need.
The size of the pads are neither too big nor too small. It is perfect. Because lets be practical, even if the pad is too huge still we would be changing it after a certain amount of time to feel more fresh and hygienic. So in the normal periods, too big pads are just a wastage of resources according to me. Bella pads seems to be perfect in size for me. Also, each pad comes in a separate cover so it can be easily carried in our handbags without getting it dirty....
Pricing wise also these are super affordable. I did not experienced any kind of odour. These are safe and comfortable to use.



Using a good quality sanitary pads is of utmost importance otherwise it can often could lead to issues like rashes, allergies and even vaginal infection. So make sure that the pads are of good quality and just not some randomly picked from the store. Bella Sanitary pads are good in quality and have an adequate absorbing power.
