Reading in Quarantine- #Birthdaybloghop

Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people – people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.” – E.B. White With the Coronavirus crisis and most of the nation quarantined inside the comfort of their homes, I can presume all the bookworms silently rejoicing, not that the world is coming to a standstill (that would be rude), but because of the reason that we will have all the possible time in the world to be reading and ticking off our TBR lists (Not precisely though). At least we thought we will have all the possible time in the world to read and read till our eyes are sore, but guess that remind yet another excuse of, ‘maybe, I will start reading tomorrow.' And, one would probably be asking, ‘why read? when we have other things to keep ourselves engaged. There are so many other things to do and catch up with- for instance, binge-watching book adapted series, attending zoom calls, video calling old friends to ch

Book Review: Love in the Time of Quarantine by Siddhartha Gigoo

  About the Book On Sunday, March the 22nd 2020, When India decided To lock herself down And send us—  Her 1.3 billion ungrateful, undeserving,  Yet beloved children— Into self-isolation To protect us From the deadly infection Of a bat-born,  Spikey ball-shaped, Gorgeous-looking Infinitesimal virus With a name  Befitting a royal, I set out to do  What all castle-builders and nighthawks do  On bright and lonesome  Sundays  That have nothing  Except dreams of hope  And fantasies of freedom  To offer. Told from multiple points of view, Commonwealth Prize-winning author Siddhartha Gigoo’s 'Love in the Time of Quarantine' clocks 30 days and nights in the lives of two lovers and a homeless family during a nation’s lock down and quarantine. My Take on the Book Hope everyone is safe at home? I recently came across this book and was really intrigued to find out what it was actually about, as we are all quarantined and I wanted t

Book Review: Humane by Ishaan Sethi

About the book This book explores masculinity in a different sense. It is like a wake-up call for everyone as it redefines masculinity in its purest form, without the stereotypes and generalization. Humane explores the negativity of the norm, “be a man.” This may only seem applicable to men, but that is the case as many women in the world are affected by the norms revolving around femininity. As humans, we are allowed to and should be allowed to freely explore our choices. For example, it is not odd or invalid that a man is sensitive or that a woman is more logical than emotional. This book is a wake-up call to all the norms we live by, for it's time to cut open our boundaries and truly explore ourselves. Being a man is not being strong, stubborn, or muscular whereas, being a woman is not being foolish, pretty, and flirty. Humane will reach out to many of the people who feel like they are stuck in a box and that is why this book is significant to readers across the glob
