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.

Love Sutra by @urvashi_pahwa 
Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐
.

Love is a feeling which cannot be expressed in the words. From many years, poets and writers are penning about this. Over the time, the definition of love changed. If we see the present situation then there are very few people who love each other unconditionally.  Living in the modern era when the other things take importance, do we have time to explore and understand love? The author of this book tried to give us some influential love sutra through the various stories. Thank you so much dear author for giving me a chance to read and review your debut work. 😊

First of all, I would like to thank the publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The first thing which attracts the readers is the enchanting book cover, adorned with magenta colour and the palm of Buddha. This book cover can attract even a non-reader. After reading the blurb and genre, I was quite skeptical about this book but to my surprise, it turned out to be one of best non-fiction books of this year. .

I am writing a post after a long time, this month was not good for me. There were so many family emergencies. My fiance was sick and frequently admitted to the hospital. We have lost one of our close relatives. 🙁 Overall, this month was very sad and despite being a month of Diwali it didn’t go well. Only the good news is that I joined my new job and I am very much happy with my work, team, and company. Due to all these, my mind was totally occupied and reading totally got sidelined. I able to complete just 4 books, among them, two were small reads.
