#WisdomWednesday with @Shalz75 Decoding a Book Review

#WednesdayWisdom

I was very chuffed when Shalini from Shalzmojo asked me to guest post for her for [ #WisdomWednesday ] I have known Shalini when we met for the Breaking Barriers event organised by WomenWeb last year. She is a spirited and generous person. I really enjoy her bubbly and friendly nature, always willing to lend an ear. …

Yamini for Y #AtoZChallenge

It is here, Y! Another difficult one but then the tail end of the A to Z is tough. Even though I fell off the wagon but I am completing my posts and this is the last one left, Z is already up and before my “Reflections post” I am finishing the few posts that …

X or XXXxxx #AtoZChallenge

X has been the most worrisome and troublesome alphabet by far! I could not find a single author for X. So I decided to feature the many authors that I love, have read or have been highly recommended by friends. More books from diverse genres that beg to read and so many that I feel …

Warrdhan with a W #AtoZChallenge

We have now come to the most difficult letters of the alphabet for the #AtoZChallenge so the chances of having more than one author per alphabet are rather slim. On top of it I am too worried about X. Surly you don’t expect an Indian author by the name X? I am still searching. Do …

Venkatraman & Vohra are very V #AtoZChallenge

V is for ladies leaving a mark on the writing scene and victory for me. The end is so near, I can almost see it. I still got a couple of older alphabets to post but I hope to catch up over the weekend. Hopefully I should have good, fast WiFi too. Two lovely ladies …

Udayasankar for U #AtoZChallenge

Today is U and this author was decided the moment I decided to write about Indian Authors. I was introduced to her writing on Damyanti’sBlog whose stories were awesome last #AtoZChallenge.  I am going with Damayanti & her opinion as I have yet to read the Aryavarta Chronicles I present Krishna Udayasankar. From one creative lady …

Tripathi to a T #AtoZChallenge

After an exhaustive S yesterday I realized two things. One, I should have mixed the first names and surnames from the first alphabet so now A will be updated with another author. Second, there are so many authors to read that this list sure doesn’t do justice to all of them. I am sure I …

Murthy & Manju are M #AtoZChallenge

 As we have moved through the alphabets I have realized that a lot of women authors have done an amazing job of putting the Indian women writers on the world map. For the alphabet M, there are two women whom I feel are definitely worth your time and a must read. Sudha Murty needs no …

Lahiri & Lalit #AtoZChallenge

L is about ladies and love and life with lots of good reading. L brings to you my very favorite and beautiful Jhumpa Lahiri. Yes, I am a big fan and am cursing myself for still not having finished reading The Lowland still. She shares space with another lady whose writing has so much heart …

Hazara, Harshita & Harsh #AtoZChallenge

H brings to fore three very diverse writers. On one hand I share writer, journalist and serious novelist Indrajit Hazara. Followed by my favorite and my inspiration Simmi Harshita who writes in Hindi so should not be on this list but I tweaked it a bit! Not to be left behind is the third author …
