The book was published on January 15th by Srishti Publishers and distributors and is widely available at the bookstores,kindle and online stores.The cover page of the book is very simple and subtle designed by Mishta Roy in which father is holding hand of his daughter which is totally depicting the story.

#BookReview : The Peshwa The Lion and the Stallion by Ram Sivasankaran

The Peshwa: The Lion and the Stallion

The Peshwa The Lion and The Stallion is the debut book of author Ram Sivasankaran. The book is historical fiction published on 22nd December 2015 by Westland ltd. The book is widely available at the bookstores, Online stores and in the kindle format. The cover page of the book and the illustration is by Kunal Kundu. The cover page is very attractive showing Peshwa Bajirao on his horse and is full of anger and the colours are very catchy to the eyes .
The book is set in the 18th century which has foiled the depiction of one of the major war between the Marathas and the Mughal Empire. The major characters are Peshwa Balaji Vishwanath Bhat , Bajirao Bhat , Kashibai and Nizam Ul Mulk. All the characters are very interesting and are firmly binded in the story. The book takes a turn when Peshwa Balaji Vishwanath surrenders his life to terminal illness and Bajirao Bhat takes up the title of the Peshwa and how he lives upto the title.
The narration of the events are in a very understandable manner which keeps the reader hooked up to the book . It is a perfect example displaying all the human emotions from  love, romance,joy to anger, bravery etc. The relationship shown between Balaji Vishwanath and Bajirao is so pure and clear also showing  how the  father is scared for his son. Although it is historical fiction but the author has written it in a very engrossing manner which is refreshing with various twists and turns. The storytelling is very appreciable which feel as one has just viewed a movie. The battle scenes are very very vivid. The book is very well executed and is well paced.
Overall,it is one of the best historical fiction book and I recommend it to all the avid readers who are highly interested in reading historical fiction.

About the Author 

Image result for ram sivasankaran

Ram Sivasankaran was born in Madras, India but has spent most of his life abroad, largerly in the Middle east and the United states of America. He was brought up on the stories from Hindu legend  and the great epics and the classics of both India and the West. In addition of being a passionate student of History in school, Ram has built a keen interest in stories of valour, heroism, chivalry, beauty and romance.
A day-dreamer of sorts , Ram believes deeply in the power of imagination- the mind being the canvas on which even the seemingly talentless can create new universes,resurrect eras long gone, bring the gods to life and even revive heroes and damsels of yore.

#BookReview: Graffiti by Joanie Pariera


Graffiti is the debut book of author Joanie Pariera . It is a Fiction Romance book and is available in Kindle format on Amazon. The book was first published in January 2013 by AuthorHouse. The cover page of the book shows a man standing with a graphic wall painting which can be directly linked with the story and makes a reader curious to read it. The novel is much like its title- Graffiti. 
The novel is set in two different parts of the world- India and USA. The story revolves around Vipin,an Indian techie working in the USA  who has lost his wife in  an accident and is trying to cope with her death . His friends, colleagues try providing him with solace but their attempts are a constant source of frustration. While on the other hand, Rene, living in Bangalore is trying to cope up with the fact that her boyfriend left her unannounced and is a gay. As the story progresses other characters are also introduced such as Upasana, closest to Rene and Mark who thinks that Rene is his soulmate.
The novel is narrated in third person except for the Vipin's  story which is narrated in the first person. The novel is not an easy read as in the starting  various characters are introduced which is way too confusing but later on clarity is there.
Overall, Graffiti is a very humorous ,interesting story about human relationships and romance. 
I recommend to those who are really interested in reading about relationships.

About The Author 

Joanie Pariera (Pen Name), has apparently been thinking about writing fiction since the time she learned to say the word ‘pencil’. It came to be, that that was the first word her parents taught her to say. According to them, she then made up her own word for it just to see them squirm. 

She likes to think she is a master of many things, including making up words. To start with she has two master’s degrees. She cooks, keeps house, codes and programs, and until recently used to write specifications for Information Systems for a living. Having travelled extensively, she has self-assimilated the cultural nuances of various unsuspecting anthropological groups and stealthily continues to put down her impressions in her writing.
