Book Review : Duorb ~ Kavya Saroja and Shanmuga Boopathy

Before telling about the review I would like to throw light on what 'Duorb' really is. It means two worlds and DuOrbian would be a person who can travel between two worlds, more like a parallel universe while sleeping.This all is created and the thought behind is of Kate's father John who is major part of the book.

Developing Reading Habits In Students ~ #DecemberDelights

Hola people! A very Merry Christmas in advance to all! 🎅




Holiday season is fast approaching and December promises a whole lot of festive fun with Christmas and New Year celebrations happening at the same. There is no better time than the present to start planning for the upcoming holiday season.

Coming to the blog, I really have no idea when I inculcated the habit of reading. One day randomly I visited my school library, picked up a book of Enid Blyton and started reading it. Though the period was of only 30 mins, but those 30 mins turned my world upside down. I daily spent 1 hour there in library and started reading random books and finally got addicted to it. I have now my own bookshelf with lots and lots and lots of books! 😏

I have no clues that how one can develop habit in a person. But here's my take on it.

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…
