Welcome On Board- Book Review

It is saucy, raunchy, free-spirited, revealing, heartfelt, cheeky and downright entertaining, and it isn’t the latest Bollywood potboiler! It’s the journey of an international flight attendant over the last 12 years and not an ordinary one at that. - Welcome On Board

As I was browsing through Crossword, a light blue covered book with a travel-like image caught my eye, I thought it was pretty attractive as it stands at the crossword ‘recommendation shelf.’  I went ahead and picked it up as I was intrigued to find out what the book was about, and who could have written it. The name of the author seemed new to me, unable to make my decision after reading the synopsis, I went around the aisle, only to come back to the same book called ‘ Welcome on Board’ by Vinamra Longani.

The book is a vivid account of life 33,000 ft. above the ground. The author who was a flight attendant for decades has noted all his encounter as a cabin crew and his everyday life incident as what one would say a job where you get to see places without having to pay a penny, only that you get to travel as a standby.

The book is real, right from the author’s heart and it is funny. I enjoyed reading every bits of it. The author narrated the insights of how it feels to be a cabin crew, where you get the chance to meet and deal with different kinds of people every single day. The incidents mentioned are emotional as well as hilarious, some which nobody would believe can actually happen while one is high up in the sky. (Talking about mile high club too.)
As described, the book is every bit of what was written on the synopsis- i.e. Saucy, Raunchy, Free-spirited, and Revealing, Heartfelt, Cheeky and Downright entertaining.
Let me not disclose all the details, as you need to find it for yourself.

Maybe you should grab a copy, fasten your seatbelt, and get ready to take off on a journey from a flight attendant view of the world.

Bon Voyage!

Ahaglow Face Wash Review

Tried and Tested! For the past two months, I went through a very bad acne outburst phase. And when I say bad, it means BAD. So, with my knack for researching, I googled trying to find a cure or maybe at least some home remedies to treat my acne. But, a multiple trial and error and I gave up.  We know how pimple popping is more than just satisfying, hence the 'habit' left me with very bad scares on my forehead and chin, also I noticed more acne than I had in the first place.  Finally, a visit to my dermatologists came to my rescue. She prescribed  some medication i.e. face wash (I am coming to this), some anti-acne ointments, and a few capsules to take.  Obviously, I had to religiously follow the skin routine treatment, but in the hour of everything, there was this thing which I discovered… it was the face wash (Yep, the point of this blog, TBH) which I can give the entire credit to. AKA presenting to you my fountain of youth in a face wash (I am exaggerating a lil bit.) Ahaglow.…

Killing Time in Delhi by Ravi Shankar Etteth: Book Review

About the Book Bon vivant Charlie Seth, a privileged denizen of Lutyens’ Delhi, leads a life of idle luxury fuelled by money, drugs, sex, and parties. A cocaine overdose kills his ditzy girlfriend, thrusting him into a maelstrom of conspiracy, murder, blackmail, and promiscuity. As the world of Crazy Rich Punjabis unravels, Charlie’s future is suddenly at the mercy of an enigmatic woman, an unscrupulous swami, a society-obsessed policeman, a slippery drug pusher and a disloyal valet. The only person who can help him is his missing aunt. Holed up in the country palace that his grandfather had won in a game of cards from a raja on Diwali, Charlie plots his revenge. Killing Time in Delhi is a brutally funny look into the shenanigans of Delhi’s ultrarich who live in the fast lane and are high on hypocrisy, borrowed money, and dubious deals.
My Take on the Book You may be wondering, 'if the title of the book is really about 'Killing Time in Delhi?' then,  yes, it is. Also, it is ab…

Book Review: Pyjamas are Forgiving by Twinkle Khanna

Blurb: There sitting on that porch, that light-eyed man, a pitta like me, was my ex-husband and that woman whose inner element I was unaware of unless bitch is accepted as an undiscovered fourth dosha, was his young wife. In the serene sanctuary of Kerala’s Shanthamaaya spa where food is rationed, sex is forbidden and emotions cantered, Anshu meets someone familiar and deeply unsettling – her ex-husband. Bittersweet, funny and wise, Pyjamas Are Forgiving confirms Twinkle Khanna as one of our great storytellers. About the book: The book is narrated by a woman named, Anshu who is in her early 40’s (divorced) and is childless.  To take a well-earned break, Anshu is in a Kerala Ayurvedic Shanthamaaya spa, where food is rationed, sex forbidden, and emotions cantered, whilst on her journey to remove dosha, Anshu is met with a familiar, yet a deeply unsettling sight- her philandering ex-husband, Jay, with his much younger wife, Shalini- who is quite opposite from her, both in physical and emotio…
