And for those who are a part of it already, they might relate to it in some way. Just read along and enjoy the short but bumpy ride…..

My Take on the Book
The title of the book caught my attention. ‘Yours Legally’ by author Sonia Sahijwani is a collection of short stories that highlight the common theme of law and courthouse. The protagonist of the novel, Sia has recently finished her graduation in law against her parent's wishes. Despite with no absolute family background in the legal profession, she goes her away to explore the various opportunities in her upcoming field of law. The book is categorized in 6 different chapters and each clearly explains more about legal matters as well as events that are inspired from a  courtroom.
Without showing any biased in the field of law, the book throws lights on the positive and negative side of a court and laws. The book is a simple read and anyone can read it without having the knowledge of the legal systems. The chapters of the books are divided as follows:
The book starts with a chapter named, 99 Vs निन्यानबे: in this chapter, it highlights on ‘The Complainant element, and it talks on "Equity follows the same" topic.
 The 2nd chapter is about, ‘The Kid on the last bench’ which deals with
 the court element. "The Practice of court is the law of court".
 The 3rd chapter narrates ‘The Wait for Item No. 25.' Here in this chapter, it talks about the case element. "The law cannot fail in dispensing justice".
Followed by the 4th chapter, which is about ‘behind those dark shades, and here it focuses on ‘The Counsel Element. "The law speaks to all with one mouth". 
The 5th chapter is aptly named as ‘Jail No. 5. Here, it discusses ‘The Confinement Element.' "That punishment may come to a few, the fear of it should affect all".
The last and the final chapter is named as Qaidi No. 90, in this chapter, the author talks about criminal element. "The Crime Carries the person".
Each chapter is intriguing and gripping in its own ways. I thoroughly enjoyed the read and I bet people who enjoys law and legal subjects will love it too.

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.

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…
