Five books to read before you die.

Reading is an art for some, a hobby for some, a waste of time for few and a way to learn for some. Reading means differently to different people. Everyone has different tastes. In this post, I'll tell you which 5 books according to me, one must read before they die.
And hey, these are not the typical "Inspirational" and "motivational" books. They are books which make you go through a variety of emotions and churn, burn and turn you! If you read them all, I am sure they will change something, somewhere inside you.. each of them will give you a unique experience and enjoyment.

1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Yes! Many will say that they have watched the movies made on this one. But you must read the book. The delightful intricacy with which the characters have been described makes it worth reading. One of the oldest books written in 1813, it still adds value to our lives.*

 Lines from the book- “There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.” 

2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
It is like a classic of the modern American Literature. Written in 1960, it throws light on the controversial topic of racism through a unique vision.*

Lines from the book- “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what. 

3. The Counte of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
This book is from the same author who wrote the famous 'The Three Musketeers' written in 1844, it is a classic story of the emotion of revenge. The plot is highly interesting and the details of everything are too amazing to describe. This book will linger in your mind long after you have finished reading it.*

Lines from the book- “Moral wounds have this peculiarity - they may be hidden, but they never close; always painful, always ready to bleed when touched, they remain fresh and open in the heart.” 

4. Coma by Robin Cook
Written in 1977 this a medical fiction book and a pure thrill to read. The plot revolves around a doctor and a mystery and is interesting to read. *

Lines from the book- "No decision is easy, Sue. It only looks that way when you're young. When you're older, everything is complicated. There is no black and white, only gray."

5. Tell me Your Dreams by Sidney Sheldon
The author Sheldon has always been in controversies regarding the content of his books. This book written in 1998 will leave you shocked, horrified and perhaps a little dizzy. The 3 characters in this book are very interesting and the end will keep you thinking.*

Lines from the book- "Someone was following her. She had read about stalkers, but they belonged in a different, violent world. She had no idea who it could be, who would want to harm her. She was trying desperately hard not to panic, but lately her sleep had been filled with unbearable nightmares, and she had awakened each morning with a feeling of impending doom. Perhaps it’s all in my imagination, Ashley Patterson thought. I’m working too hard. I need a vacation."

*Note: Almost all books have movies based on them. Why?? because the books themselves are so amazing that the people who read them thought of converting them into movies!! Read the books & then watch the movies if you haven't because books give your imagination a kick which movies cannot. And if you have already watched the movies without reading the books, I would suggest you do read them so that you get the experience which I've mentioned above!! :)

Well, that was the list.I do hope you read them! Enjoy! 
:) :)                                                                 Au Revoir!

Prema's Journey...

Hey everybody! Today we have a very special person with us.

Meet Prema Malhotra.  Prema lives in the United States of America along with her family. She has two brothers.
She is just like everyone of us. A slight difference is- Prema was adopted when she was a child.
Prema has willingly agreed to open up to us & share bits of her life.
Let me tell you, after Prema came to know that she was adopted, her thirst to search for her original parents started. She travelled from USA to India, in search of her roots. She came to know that she was relinquished by her birth mother two days after her birth.
The reason was that her natural mother was abandoned and left alone by her natural father. Later on she was adopted by her current father & mother.  Prema then started to feel that she really should meet her birth mother.
The struggle Prema went through to search for her birth mother is something one cannot explain. Did she then, meet her natural mother??? She has done extensive resea…

Gaurav Ghatnekar - A candid interview with a gifted actor!

Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together to welcome none other than Gaurav Ghatnekar! Today we have with us a handsome hunk who is a talented Marathi and Hindi actor, famous for his movies like "Tujhi Majhi Love Story" and shows like "Tuj Vin Sakhya Re" among many others. He
has recently been essaying the role of Lord Krishna to perfection in a popular Hindi show called Dharmakshetra on Epic Channel.

Back after a game of squash, in a candid chat with me, he answers some of my questions-

Me: Have you always wanted to be an actor? What made you decide that you want to be an actor?
Gaurav: When I was a kid, I was fascinated by a lot of professions. One day I would want to be a bus
conductor the other day a 'pepsi-cola' seller, as I grew up I wanted to be a pilot so that I could fly a plane . Then I felt like joining the army once. I realised that if I want to be so many people at once, I should be an actor! An actor can be whoever he wants and that's…

4 simple ways to get out of the Comfort Zone.

Hello everyone!
So it's the first blog post of 2018! It's already been almost two months into the year and I hope the year is going good for all.

  I would like to bring to you 4 very simple ways to get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.

What is the comfort zone?
A comfort zone is a zone for each one of us where we feel safe or at ease, where we use only tried and tested methods which can yield only the same type of result.

Why get out of it?
Getting out of the zone, means essentially adding more value to your life, growth in terms of personal and professional life. It basically means expanding your horizons, facing your fears and doing something you have not done before, to make your life more meaningful than it is now.

In fact, writing a blog post on something like this, is me getting out my comfort zone as well, because it's different from what I usually write.

Here I am sharing with you four effortless yet significant ways to change the way you perceive …
