Pandeymonium by Piyush Pandey

A book I randomly stumbled upon this month. A wonderful read especially if you love design and advertising. Here is a short write up of the book from Penguin Books India: What makes Piyush Pandey an extraordinary advertising man, friend, partner and leader of men? How does he manage to exude childlike enthusiasm, and bring such deep commitment to his work? You’ve seen most of the things that Piyush Pandey (…) Read more

Born Again On The Mountain by Arunima Sinha

When I first told my friends about Arunima, they were like, “Aru who?”. Most Malaysians may not be familiar with her but she has captured the hearts of thousands around the world. In April 2011, Arunima Sinha, a national level volleyball player, was thrown out of a running train by robbers who were after her gold chain. Her left leg crushed by the passing trains had to be amputated. This did (…) Read more

Fixi Launches KL Noir Yellow

Fixi has just launched KL Noir Yellow, the fourth and final installment of the KL Noir series. I’m truly happy for my friend Sukhbir, whose short story “The Lost Pilgrim”, is featured in the book. He’s a good friend for many years. I recently worked on his website, Sukhbirism. I’ll be honest. I’ve never purchased the KL Noir series bu I’ve been seeing this book on display in every bookstore I visit. So #KLNoirYellow (…) Read more

Walter Isaacon’s New Book, The Innovators

Walter Isaacson‘s brand new book was released earlier this month. The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution. Really loved his Steve Jobs book. Just got this on Kobo and hopefully it will be an interesting read too. Following his blockbuster biography of Steve Jobs, The Innovators is Walter Isaacson’s revealing story of the people who created the computer and the Internet. It is (…) Read more

The Race of My Life – Milkha Singh

What an amazing book. I’m almost done with it. Extremely inspiring. I’m probably going to watch the movie “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” next. This is the autobiography of India’s most famous track and field sprinter, know best with his nickname, “The Flying Sikh“. It’s inspiring to read this somewhat rags to riches tale and how we actually endured so much suffering during the partition, becoming a refugee, joining the army and (…) Read more

The Oath of the Vayuputras by Amish Tripathi (Shiva Trilogy #3)

This is the third and final book in the series and sadly my least favourite. Many portions of the book could have been omitted as it was too descriptive and unnecessary. Perhaps this could have been tailored to fit the movie deal the author had signed or maybe, like all great books, he just did not know how to end it properly. Despite this, the Shiva Trilogy was a wonderful (…) Read more

The Secret of the Nagas by Amish Tripathi (Shiva Trilogy #2)

Just completed the second book in the series. Amish Tripathi definitely managed to maintain the same quality and intensity with this second book. We see the introduction of new characters namely Kartik, Ganesh and Kali. The author has brilliantly brought the characters to life maintaining some aspects of the puranic story and introducing a whole new beautiful storyline. There is also a lot of philosophical discussions surrounding “evil” and a (…) Read more
