Monsoon Cravings ~ Rain Special Blog #BirthdayBlogTrain

Monsoon is one such season which is loved by everyone. Fresh air, breezy days, cloudy skies and muddy aroma. And as the dark clouds roll in, we got some enormous cravings as well.

So, lets relish some delicious delicacies from kitchens across the country which are loved by everyone...


Kachori-JalebiDeep-fried, carbs...the kachori and jalebi are guilty on all counts. The kachori filling varies - onion, green peas, a spicy lentil or potato mix are some favourites in North India. And the jalebi - a fried syrupy snack - hot and crispy from kadhai, is a perfect ending to kachori indulgence.



BhuttaMonsoons are incomplete without getting caught in the rain and relishing some charcoal roasted bhutta with a drizzle of salt and lime. The crunch of that will make the perfect and comfortable setting on windy and rainy days.





Garam adrak chaiNothing is more typically monsoon than rain soaked hair and kadak chai with extra adrak. It will also protect you with the sneezes that you got from soaked shower…

A perfect romantic comedy to chill in this hot summer. This is author's debut book and she has sculptured the story like bollywood movie. The female protagonist was not only charming and beautiful but also very bold and dauntless in her own sense.

Book Review : Where Will Man Take Us ~ Atul Jalan

This is the first non fiction book I've ever read. It explores the dynamics of the technology, how it's reinventing us, as a society and as a species. This book took my outlook to a whole new level, with topics ranging from artificial intelligence to quantum physics, genetics and nanotechnology being woven together into a contemporary and compelling narrative on the trajectory of human evolution. But, we are also forced to ask ourselves some serious questions - what is it to be human, what is self awareness, what is is consciousness etc.

The book consists of 5 sections. Each section is divided into many chapters in which author talked about the topics I've mentioned above and its impact on the society. It's started with evolution of species and moved to technology. How man made it and how it reinventing the man and other generation.

We love interpreting trends, looking at the changes that are happening around us to figure the flow of the world, life and our selves. The p…

A Letter to my Bookstagram ~ #TheBookBlogTrain

"And suddenly you know... it's time to start something newand trust the magic of beginnings."


Dear theintrovertbibliophile,
It's been exactly 4 months today since we are together and I'm glad you came into my life like a surprise and the journey has been amazing since then.
You know, I am reading books for a very long time but never had anyone to discuss them, how one feels whenever they finish some book and had no idea what to do next! But then, I stumbled upon some bookish profiles which gave me a boost up of why not to make one separate bookish account..!
After learning a bit about bookstagram, you finally came into existence on Jan 28, 2019 and since then, there was no looking back. We made many bibliophile friends, you introduced me to the new books, authors, various book clubs, buddy reading and yes, giveaways which just made me so happy and exhilarated. In short, you introduced me to a whole new world! 😍😍 
Though sometimes, you give me hard time too like, rea…

"A Girl, a stolen camera and a borrowed bike" is story of a girl #Sonali. She is bubbly, a med grad and is on a trip to Goa with her friends. In between, she discovers a camera that redefines her life and reshapes her journey.

Genre : Fiction, Drama, Romance, Travel, Mystery, Short Stories




Blurb Description 

Through the Mist’ is a collaborative book and an innovative venture to break a common belief and to validate an old saying. It is a common belief that a story can be spun from only one pen. But ‘Through the Mist’ is a bouquet of stories from a bunch of authors. The book validates that ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ because a single photograph is the only common link to all the stories of this book. Yes, a picture is worth a book!


This book has brought together five writers from diverse backgrounds. The starting point of the stories is a picture, that has been interpreted by each of the writers differently so that the stories touch many genres and have varied characters.
