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.

The Bachelors Theorem - by Sanchit-Prateek


Midhansh and Sidhesh, coming from faces poles apart, find themselves enrolled in a theorem to experience, but the proof is not easy. It does not involve just the two of them, rather every single soul which has somewhere sometime and somehow undergone the insanely incomplete situation of life. 

‘The Bachelors Theorem’ deals with those small little aspects of you and us which tend to occupy large space and yet the tangents of life are dotted lines running through the dark and light. This is a story of two friends who once were strangers, unaware of the games of life. Their respective love lives are not perfect and their desperate attempts to make it perfect are again imperfect. They both have a hidden past, which is revealed to each other under totally different circumstances and thus they find numerous similarities in the deep meaning of the way they are actually living. The surprise given to them by life has a crucial impact and everything seems to change, but life moves on.

The Susurrus Beyond the Sky - by Junius





It is every boy's dream to kiss his teacher, and Ritwik is no exception. Only his teacher is also a boy.

Thus begins the journey of a homosexual student, and before long the college principal, Swami Muktananda, suspends him for indecent behaviour. His family, distraught by the news, sends him to Dr. John Dias for cognitive behaviour therapy. But wonder of wonders, Ritwik stumbles across an unlikely gay patient at the doctor's office: Swami Muktananda.

Stung by the revelation, he braces himself for more surprises when the Supreme Court revives Section 377 without warning. And since this law criminalises 'sex against nature', fanatical groups attack the gay community with impunity.

Only a religious force could stop such untamed religious fury, so Ritwik begs Swami Muktananda to declare his sexuality and convince the public on the need for reconciliation. But will the monk comply—or will Ritwik have to bear the cross all by himself?

Set in Chennai, The Susurrus beyond the Sky narrates the tale of two homosexuals—one a student, and the other a sannyasin—and how circumstances force them to join hands against a common foe: bigotry.

I Promise....- by Tahira Kashyap


A Story of Love and Deceit

I Promise... is a story about a perfectionist. Every job demands the same but who had ever thought of Raghunath, a pyre maker, to be a cynical perfectionist. Each pyre that he made was a masterpiece for him. Every time he built a pyre, his father's instructions used to run over and over again in his head … 

The wood should not be soft – checked; it should be dry – checked; it should be seven feet in length and two-and-a-half feet in breadth – checked; the hollow ones separated from the solid and heavy ones – checked; the hay and burning material all ready – checked; ghee – checked.


Thirty-two years of his life went by living with the dead. But then somebody's presence changed everything about his existence, for good or for worse? Let us have you decide the same….






I promise . . . brings Raghunath's life to a question. 'Is it better living dead, when life is like your mistress, or is it better getting a life right before death, like an unfaithful one?'The perfectly made pyre stood staring at Raghu. Who had ever thought of witnessing one's own pyre? But in Raghu's case, it was justified … read on to know Raghunath's story … a story never told before.

Anything Else But Love - by Ankita Chadha


'Anything else but love!'
I loved you even before I knew it,
The scent of your skin still lingers on my senses,
I can see that we are blinded by our natural magnetism towards each other,
We are dancing to each others' tunes, rhythmic beats,
And still you say that between us there can be 'Anything else but love!'




Shewali Singh is a simple, sweet and appealing girl who cares for family and its values. She has just moved to Bangalore to head a project. Always engaged in work, somewhere she has imagined a list of qualities her guy should have. But as her fate would have it, she bumps into a guy who works in the same office as hers. And not only that, he's a flirt, a prankster, who calls himself the Avi Malhotra, who not only misfits the list, but also manages to get a rise out of the generally very easy going Shewali. What follows is, daily fights, gradual friendship, sudden likeness, and then–? All the rules of the artist's sketch of their better half are thus broken.

But, what rules do you follow when you start falling in love? Will the phrase “Opposites attract” hold true for them?

Did You See The Joker?- by Saikat Baksi


The girl whispered, “I love you.”

It took a while for the words to sink in his consciousness. When they did, he broke into a brief silent smile. The trace of dismissive scorn did not miss the girl. She repeated, “I loved you . . . from the moment I saw you there at the corner table.”

He watched her with an amused mocking glint and said in a slurred voice, “It's okay. I paid you already.”

“You know, he looked exactly like you, calm, serene, simple, sitting at that corner hidden in the darkness watching me. He was the one who took my virginity.”

He stopped for a moment and listened. In a stupor of inebriation, it sounded like a true account.

“He said he loved me. He used to come every night. He bought me this gold chain you see.” The girl pointed at her neck. There was a scar at her neck and there was also a thin gold chain resting on her bare chest.





Ceaseless flow of life swirls around the bends of tears and laughter, vengeance and passion, hatred and love. Yet it flows . . . nothing can stop it. Nothing can block it. The eternal flow holds the wavering reflection of the joker . . .

Temple Of Destiny- by Neeraj Singhvi


Story of a great adventure through a person's life – a young man travelling to India in search of answers to his life's mission. He comes to a place where his mentor provides him divine guidance. The story revolves around fishes in a bowl and how these as a medium help the young man change his mission in life by making him understand the intricacies thereon. It brings out nature's gift to the world and will provide reasons for your existence on this planet. It's about life's main system – the principle of connectivity and integration of mind, body, earth and the universe. 




It was a self-evaluating experience, which with its simple language touched my soul. It tells us to bond with nature to attain peace and to stay away from exploitation led by religion and terrorism. It is like an encyclopaedia to which we need to refer at every crossroad of life. —Kanchan Srimal (60)



This book has just mesmerised me. It has been an eye opener. It has made me realise the minutest details of our existence. Faith, patience, endurance all in oneself is most important. Do read the book in solace – understand every word and line deeply. For me it is like modern version of the “GITA”.   —Vishal Himatsingka (39)

The Wife The Mother And The Man In Between- by Vaishnavi Sanoj




As the world shrinks into one global village, people are more and more inclined to easy-way of doing things and so do i-Pads replace laptops, i-pods replace radios and that is all appreciated too. But when it comes to marriage there is almost no easy way to STAY married. There is none and there will be none in any millennium. Staying united all through a lifetime calls for lot of adjustments, patience and a mind that can forgive.

And since the past two decades our television serials have been attacking on mother-in-laws; portraying them in the worst ways as possible, so much that the very thought of a mother-in-law coming into life along with the marriage triggers tension into every bride. But let us take a different route in this book, and try to understand the woman called mother-in-law and why she reacts the way she does and also what can you do not just to STAY married but be loved by your spouse and his family as well. 

About the Author: Vaishnavi Sanoj is the partner and fifth generation member of S T Reddiar & Sons family, the one to have firstly established a press for Malayalam books in Kerala. Her press successfully presents to that market a lot of astrology, Vaastu, ayurveda and Hindu-epic books since 125 years.

Fate, Fraud & A Friday Wedding- by Bhavna Rai



It's an extravagant Friday night wedding at one of the glitziest venues in Delhi. A young call center executive falls to her knees, shot by a drunken ex-boyfriend who'd been blackmailing her.


Both Anand and Neel witness the event. One is the cause, the other, the effect.


This contemporary novel traces the journeys of two men, one from India to the US, as he relentlessly chases his dreams and the other from the US to India, as he returns grudgingly, for the sake of his family.


Caught between them is Tara Mehra, the woman they both love. One is her past, the other, her future.


Can Anand's immense personal wealth and corporate success erase the scars of being spurned by the woman he loved? Will he realise that the only thing holding back his vision, is the extent he is willing to go, to achieve it? Can Neel win the multimillion dollar bid and cement his status with his overbearing boss? Will his American girlfriend be able to get a wedding date out of him or will her efforts be thwarted by his mother's matchmaking? 


Set against the backdrop of the IT industry, where aggressive growth targets and billion dollar revenues go hand in hand with the dark underbelly of Internet fraud and manipulated share prices, this is a story of crisscrossing lives and intertwined personal and professional relationships.

The Ultimate Laugh- by Pranesh Prasad



It is the story of Tim, a bookshop proprietor, his wife, Sandy – an Indian, who are left helpless when the government decides to disenfranchise Indians in their country and Michael Manmohan Ram, who hears of the injustice about to be perpetrated and decides to leave the order and comfort of life in Australia to engage in an act of 'terrorism'.

Michael stays with his childhood friend, Tim and finds that he is no longer what he thought he was; that he is now looking at the world through his Western lens. To succeed in his mission he has to try to convince Tim to join forces with him. He also needs the help of Thakur – the deposed Prime Minister, who is now more interested in listening to ghazals than getting his hands dirty in politics. As Michael goes about preparing himself for his day of reckoning he finds that he is haunted by his past – his failed romances and his life lived in both India and Australia, which has the effect of pushing him further into delusion and self-absorption.

Does Michael succeed in his act of defiance? Can he restore self-respect to a much maligned community? Is he able to save himself from extinction?

In finding the answers to these questions, the reader will be able to view the response of an individual who has found what they were looking for and their behaviour when the first serious challenge to the notion of belonging, home and happiness arises. Through this, light is shed on the process through which 'terrorism' is born and the choices made by individuals who have nothing to lose.
