Book review: The Inimitable Chaos of Life

I received this book much later than I expected. ‘The Inimitable Chaos of Life’ is a book written by Maliny Mohan. It consists of fourteen meaningful, deep, heartwarming life's stories, and much to the title of the book, it is “an amalgamation of enthralling stories borrowed from the chaotic pages of life, which allure you to relive the multitude of unique emotions humans are made of.”

The stories in the book are relatable to real life’s events, and I bet the readers are more likely to connect and bring to life the intensity, complexity and sheer beauty of human emotions. It’s true, everyone goes through the chaos in life, and somewhere along the line, chaos began and ends with us. The author has written and narrated the stories to touch upon human lives and the emotions of everyday situations. Heartbreak, pain, death, separations, and the harsh realities are all part of human lives, and one must go through the test no matter what. The book is a mix of emotions, inspiration, filled with both joy and sadness.

'The Inimitable Chaos of Life’ is a good read and it seems like the author is clear on the deeper connection of what she has written about the events, taken from the elements of other lives. The book touched me in many ways possible. Though many of the stories narrated in the book may not be relative to my life, yet I feel they are real and cannot be overlooked. It is likely to touch your heart too.
All the 14 stories have meaningful life’s lessons, the author has captured the many tricky circumstances that life throws at us unexpectedly, turning it into a powerful message for the readers to comprehend. The concepts, as well as the characters, are relatable to real life happenings.
It is written in simple language, which makes it easier for any age to understand.

One thing I loved about each story is, the endings have a different twist, which left a lasting impression on me even after I closed the book. The stories will linger in my mind for quite some time. 
The author's job is done here.

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.
