KHARmic Connection

For God loves Foolish People is our answers to many deliberations we have in life. Satbirji so effortlessly brings forth glimpses of the orchard in her vineyard, the winter laden hills of Nainital, the Independent Indian lifestyle, the cowebs of customs and traditions, the bubbly innocence of a girl, a passionate reader surrounded by her book haven. Her ardent role model of a respected and caring grandfather who instills the very seeds of wisdom and simplicity  she possesses.She dwells upon sharing her anecdotes on intimate family relationships that blossom into a close knitted one.
Her beautifully described era of  golden Bombay invites nostalgic moments  and wishing that, she helps us trace to those times along with her experiences.
She cajoles us about her tryst with destiny, her priorities, her beliefs which may have been sometimes shaken  or twisted, but Satbirji astounds us with her poise of life, her firm faith in God’s will and reflecting upon our karma that finally intercedes to our happiness.
A book that will see you wear that beautiful smile admist our conquest for life and dreams! !!!

Flights from my terrace book Review

Welcome on board pilot Santosh  Bakaya who takes you on a fun filled , mesmerizing  and enriching flight  taking off right from her Terrace. Her eagle eyes ferries us to places and moments you would probably ignore, refrain or merely sulk to celebrate, ponder and mediate into her dreams just like she does often. Her liberating,vivacious personality along with her profound wisdom reflects well in her witty phrases and dialogues.Dont be surprised if  you laugh your lungs out, find your feet in crowded buses, hold your nerve in blazing heat, fly with invisible wings alongside the birds. Feel extremely comfortable when she shares her travelogue alongside her trivia of being a mother, wife, teacher and being your friend seated right next to you in the cockpit.Her daughter Iha is the star of her life and in beautiful moments we are lucky to be part of.Also admire our beloved pilot craning her head, marching her gaze to find her muse(could be you!) in the next second right from counting the number of chins to being effective to find a grin in total chaos. The schedule of the flight may be decided by you, but the pilot takes charge from the moment you wear the seatbelt!
Please note the secret of the broken egg is marked on your next itinerary….dont miss it….till then ENJOY THIS ONE!!!

Thwarted Escape Book Review

THWARTED ESCAPE
How many can claim to have conquest love and not otherwise? Lopa Banerjee has, through her book by living that example of a life we aspire to have but do not venture into jumping over its gates for comforts of our couch suits us better. The book is not just of memoir of her childhood,womanhood and motherhood but a real contemplation of the many hoods we wear and are surrounded by in our society. According to me, Poets can ink even with a thorn of a cactus and tip of a shrub. And here, we have a extremely talented combo of a poet writer who weaves her journey tiptoeing to every crevices of her life filling it her poetic verses oscillating to the past while holding on to the present very beautifully. This book is a escape to the finest wonderland of words travelling through the shrewd threads of our beliefs,bellowing to the stingy minds, walking to the green pastures of nature, the bylanes of Kolkatta to the porch of Nebraska all woven with a lyrical play of the tanpura!!!

Review -Book Ballad of Bapu by Santosh Bakaya Maám

It all began at RS, where poets together meet,
one such honour is interacting with the Maestro Santosh Bakaya
her rhymes and tales woo everyone minds,
I feel lucky to marvel at this talent that is one of a kind.

Even better reverence is reading Ballad of Bapu,her acclaimed book,
a journey of Mahatma all under one roof.
She expresses the chronological ballet with verses each of five,
A history retold unfolded alive.

A man who stood for masses; words speak about,
some moments long forgotten or unknown, verbs spell out.
A vision that pays ode to the Father of the Nation,
who bought a revolution with Satyagraha and fight against racial discrimination.

I am just wondering
that this mystical poetic saga penned by Santosh Maám is so powerful
and is enriching; charming both old and the youth,
holding everyone’s attention with her ink that soothes,
may be even The dhoti clad man must be smiling from above,
reaching out for his spectacles to read the book himself now!!!
