There are times when one starts a book and has a few expectations about it.
The day I started this one there was one word that made its mark and that was mousetrap, cause mouse aren't people whom I like having around, even Jerry never had my love.
Then the story started unfolding and oh man I was hooked. The plot, the language and even the place where it is based in everything came together. It was like reading a high octave Bollywood thriller, only without the songs and I had rain as my background score.
In short, my rainy day was made awesome!
And since time and again I have told anyone who have lend me their ears that I hate rain trust me it's quite a feat.
Quick question- What's your spirit animal?

Growing up I am someone who heard lots of stories from my grandparents on both sides.
Be it mythology, historical stories or fictional folk tales, I have heard it all.
This book for me was like getting back a piece of that childhood.
In short I loved the book.
Special mention needs to be made of the fact that apparently Tansen's lady love too was just as much talented as he was, the perfect rain to his thunder fire.

I personally believe that one should do her best and not think about things out of one's control.
This pandemic has shown us that things change and not always work out as we want it to.
This book is a positive was to look at the results people had to face cause of it.
Job lay offs to pay cuts, people had to face tons of stuff and this book kinda gives us a picture on how to go about it all.
Give it a read, it's bound to have a positive impact on your life.
QOTD- Tell me an incident where you did your best and then let things find their own place on their own.
Answer- Well, it was during my last battle of Clash of clans… I deployed my entire army and just let them decide what they wanted to do.

It's been ages since I read a Bengali book, let alone one in poetry. Somehow with studies and work I seems haven't had the time to go for this particular delightful experience.
A friend suggested I give one a try and needless to say it was amazing.
Incidentally I should mention something, not only does the name of the book means a flower but it also is the name of the author's mother and that made the book even more special.
The only issue I had with the poems were that they were in blank verse and I like my rhymes but turns out even here me and the poet have similar tastes. All in all it was a good read for me.
Who is big fan of comics ?
Who loves the idea of multi-verses?
If you give a girl who likes different ideas about the world and how everything works, how much is she going to love it?
We have all heard about and also learnt about how everything came about in the world. How the big bang happened and slowly the world as we know of it now, came into existence. Now think of something else,like the fact that small families made up counties, then cities and then states which were followed by nations. These great nations finally made the world and are just a small part of the universe.
So many things to know, so many places to go and not enough time and mind you I am talking about pre or post lockdown, but your mind isn't tethered to anything. Grab this one a give it a try, it's bound to blow your mind. One key line in the book that made a major mark in my mind is how gravity is the ultimate unifier, like death it's the same for all living beings on one hand but it works for non living things as well so it has a bigger reach than death.
I haven't read the original Game of thrones books, and I haven't watched the series as well. I knew all the pop culture references so it was fun to read this one and find the all the little references here and there. The best part about it all is the fact that it's in modern day world. This made reading it very fun.
Looking forward to more such books
