Love's Journey - by Rashmi Singh

An unusual saga of dreams, love and faith overpowering seasons of deceit and lust...

Sebastian loses her family at the age of fifteen in a communal riot of a small town and lands up by luck in the tinsel town of Bollywood. Her path is filled with hurdles in shades of poverty, greed, compromises, infatuation, love and lust but acclimatizing herself to vagaries of life she manages to shine as a beautiful star, reaching the pinnacle of stardom. 

This is a story of a woman, who breathes for true love, in this materialistic world. At the epitome of success, love once again beckoned her with all its essence but ends as another physical encounter of her life, leaving her emotionally bereft. Finally, her journey of love traversing through slums, facing hurdles and rough patches, climbs the epitome of success, finding its destination at the place she had never expected.

God Moved Your Cheese - by B. Ganeshkumar

Ever given a thought as to: 

Why do most people, even though despising what they do, religiously wake up every morning to welcome the same mundane routine for another frustrating day? 

Why does the motivation to achieve something in life automatically disappear after a few days? 

What stops us from achieving what we really want to achieve?

Why do we mostly choose a 'safer' option (eg. a Job), rather than following what our heart really wants us to do? 

God Moved Your Cheese throws up practical insights into these queries, in a rather innovative and simplistic manner, logically building up to that one attribute which will grant you the right to be successful in any sphere of life. Forever.

World Famous Military Operations - by Vikas Khatri

World Famous Military Operations as the name suggests captures various enthralling and awe-inspiring military operations that have taken place down the ages. Military operations are the coordinated military actions of a state in response to a developing situation. These actions are designed as a military plan to resolve the situation in the state's favour. The operations are referred to by a code name for the purpose of security.

From the Nazi Germany to the Indian borders – it covers it all. Atomic bombings in the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, terrorist incidents by South Moluccans throughout the Netherlands, Kargil War, capture raid on Bin Laden and many other such vigorous operations are presented in the most lucid language with interesting photographs and maps to support.

Although these operations add to the knowledge bank of the readers, they also provoke our nationalistic feelings and impinge our senses to feel for the deceased and the deprived war-struck families. The inevitable realisation that is forced by the destruction caused by war is something that adds to the worth of the book.

This book is a must read for those interested in the jaw-dropping inside stories of various military operations.

The Reflection of Destiny - by Mrs. Kalpana Jani

There is a very interesting story behind the birth of this book which I would like to share with all of you. 

With every client came a new story and a new angle of looking at life. Each and every new day added a new colour to the rainbow of my experience. The accuracy of my predictions would sometimes amaze me since I am the one who says this all the time, “Palmistry is a science which can go from seventy to a hundred percent accurate.” This pleasure I would sometimes share with my daughter who loved listening to my stories on our late night strolls. It was indeed a great quality time that we spent as mother and daughter. 

Ever since I have consulted and guided tens of thousands of people from different walks of life not only in India but all around the world. Studying their palms and learning their problems, sufferings and solutions landed me with a whirlwind of thoughts which disturbed me a lot. It also inspired me to present something exquisite to the world. My mind was clouded with various thoughts waiting to materialise but in vain. I desperately wanted to share my experience but I could not find the right channel which disturbed me immensely. 

On 21st of June 1998, after finishing my heavy consulting schedule at 10:45 p.m. I was too tired. I still remember it was drizzling outside and the cool climate attracted me to go for a stroll. I was all alone. All the streets were empty and there was an amazing peace in the surroundings. Even the street dogs were fast asleep. The sweet fragrance of mud touched my mind. But as I came out to walk, again the Volcano of thoughts started to burn me. How can I share my client’s joy of success and satisfaction with the world? I was very sure I wanted to present something amazing, but ideas evaded me as to how I can share this treasure of my experience with the world!! 

All of a sudden with a thunder in the sky a spark enlightened my mind. My dear readers, believe me, within fifteen minutes of stroll the birth of my ‘Golden Dream’ took shape, which I earnestly put forward to you.
