Review Diaries (Celebrating Small Victories by J.V.R. Prasada Rao)

 Name of the book - Celebrating Small Victories : My Journey Through Two Decades of AIDS Response

by J.V.R. Prasada Rao 

Stars given - 5 out of 5 stars.

My take on the book-

I started this on a friend's suggestion when I said I needed to take a break from fiction, I know that is so like me.

Standing in 2021 the words AIDS is still used in a very hush-hush manner. It's a taboo of epic proportions and many people are not aware of the situations but would rather just judge and be done with it.

The Author didn't just give us a story where he took on the world and lived happily ever after. He makes everyone aware and educates people. The data provided in the book is eye-opening in a very different level. The setbacks as we see him facing in the book are heart wrenching and I would love to send many virtual hugs to him for not giving up.

Read this one, it's bound to make you a better person.

Review Diaries (Name Place Animal Thing)

 They say Old Is Gold.

They are telling the truth.

I am part of the they...

I started this book in the middle of a strenuous work day. I wanted a little break and gosh I got my wish.

I was an only child and my Ma used to keep me occupied with tons of indoor games.

This one was played during the hot summers when going out and playing wasn't really an option.

The book brought back tons of old memories and I had fun. I even tried my hand in reading the book to my Mom, lost my voice in the process but I have absolutely no regrets.

The book combines this age old game with certain life lessons.

This is where the book makes it's mark.
