Book Giveaway: Men and Dreams in The Dhauladhar by Kochery C. Shibu (Paperback) – (Closed)

Tags:    

Book name: Men and Dreams in the Dhauladhar

Author: Kochery C. Shibu

Genre: Fiction

Release date: August 3rd 2015

Format: Paperback

Pages: 284

Here is a blurb of the book: 

A hydro power project in the remote Himalayas.
Three people brought together by fate. Nanda, an engineer from Kerala at the dam construction site hiding from his past, from the law, torn between the love of his dear ones and the traditional kalari code of revenge.
Khusru, a boy displaced from his native village in Kashmir, a gambit in the terror plot threatening to blow up the dam, working as a labour at the site.
Rekha, a Kathak dancer in heart, a doctor by profession, arrives at the campsite as the consort of Khusru.
A village that accepts the dictates of modernity with a heavy heart, its population steeped in superstitions and religious beliefs.
All throng the camp site like moths to a flame. Some escape untouched,successful; some miss a step and perish.
Each has a story to tell and a dream to realize. The fury of nature and hardship of project life has no mercy for the weak and time for the dead.
Like an eternal spectator the Dhauladhar watches as men risk their limb and life in their quest to full fill their dreams.

Here is my view on this book: 

I think I have never read any book which has such elaborate details of the characters and their history. The author has executed hydroelectric projects and many of the instances in this book are derived from there. The author must have done extensive research to write this book and the same reflects in the book.  Apart from the protagonist, I love the stories of Indumati, Mangu Ram and Katariina Herschel. You can find amazing stories in this one book. This book is inspiring, interesting and must read.  Do not miss it.

I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest book review. So at first, I would like to thank them. The title itself suggests that it is a story of a bride or better say a girl. 
The complications of marriage and choosing a suitable bride and groom is the interesting part of this book. .

There is nothing like reading a collection of #shortstories stories. I simply love reading them. They serve various emotions in few pages and that’s what makes short stories beautiful. This book comes as a review copy from the publisher @niyogi_books and @trisha_niyogi so at first, I would like to give them huge thanks. .

I have read this book last year but wasn’t able to write a review due to various things in personal life. The author has provided the copy of this book in exchange for an honest book review. So at first, I would like to thanks him.
.
This book has 15 chapters; each describes a lie which we tend to speak in our life. Though we don’t realize these little lazy lies are the main hurdle in our success.
.
This is a short book, enveloped with impressive life lessons! Totally recommend to those who want to get best from their life.
