Book Review: Black Warrant by Sunil Gupta and Sunetra Choudhury

About the book What is life like inside Asia’s largest prison? What happens when a man is hanged, but his pulse refuses to give up even after two hours? Did Nirbhaya’s rapist, Ram Singh, commit suicide or was he murdered? For the first time, we have a riveting account from an insider who has spent close to four decades as an officer at Tihar Jail during some of the most turbulent times in Indian political history. For the first time, he breaks his silence about all he’s seen – from the first man he met in Tihar, Charles Sobhraj, to the controversies surrounding former CBI head, Alok Verma. Responsible for carrying out ‘Black Warrants’, Gupta witnessed 14 hangings, the most recent and his last, being that of Afzal Guru. Joining him is award-winning journalist Sunetra Choudhury whose recent book Behind Bars is a bestseller and took her deep inside the maze of prisons. Read this book for the most intimate and raw account of India’s judicial and criminal justice system.

Book Review: A drop of You by Krishna Chhetri

About the Book We become overtly colourless when our hearts aren't together; only when a soul finds its body, they sing and dance together to the colours of life. Three closely knit people, Karma, Diana & Ghazal meet at the crossroads of life, unaware of the cosmic conspiracy and its comical destiny. Heart is their road, love is their journey and the soul, the final destination. Sailing on the tides of emotions, they encounter deceit, with a tinge of poison and drop of bliss. Forever love; it is a myth? Or a reality? Is it stifling pain or undying love, that makes love eternal? Come, let us explore!

A drop of you is the debut book by Krishna Chhetri, the book narrates the story of three friends, Karma, Diana, and Ghazal, who are caught in a love triangle situation. This is a tale of love,  friendship, destiny, and heartbreak. Like every love triangle, three friends find themselves in a situation they …

Sex Yoga Right to Sex Education Or a Wrong Rape Book by Korak Day- Book Review

 About the book Break free, celebrate your body, if you want, but do not commit the evil rape.  First, get educated in sex and all things related to it, then either explore or ignore as per your inner command, but be neither an ignorant fool nor a hypocrite. 23 ways of kissing, 13 forms of embracing, 12 of scratching, 9 biting ideas, 20 attitudes of a sexual union, 8 styles of blowjobs and much more would guarantee you the pleasures that you never explored.  Sex is vile only for evil people; the rest can feel the joy. My take on the book A very light read with just 84 pages, Sex Yoga is a book on how and why it is important to understand sex as a right thing, which if treated wrongly can lead to the present modern societies i.e rape, mistreatment of men and woman, etc. the book is about knowing one’s body and understanding the ecstasy in the way that comes naturally to us. This book is more like a beginner's guide to understanding sex and knowing everything before you enjoy it. Keeping …
