The Rich Labourer - Book Review

The Rich Labourer 
By Parthajeet Sarma & Sibani Sarma 
Review By Ila Garg

The Rich Labourer, a novel by Parthajeet Sarma and co-authored by Sibani Sarma, is published by iDream. The cover shows the legs of a man walking up the stairs of ‘success’. The tag line: “A 3-Step Path to Finding Solutions: For People, Organisations and for Society” is explicit in itself and therefore, readers can easily guess what to expect inside this book.

Agniputr - Book Review

By Vadhan
Review By Ila Garg

Agniputr, a novel by Vadhan, is published by Bloomsbury India. The cover shows a palace set on fire—giving the plot a historic appeal. The title and sub title (When Agni First Spoke) adds to the feel.

With more than two decades as a litigator and consultant for legislative compliance, Vadhan turned to writing a few years ago. He is a lawyer by training, an entrepreneur and dreamer. His first book, ‘Shatru’, part of the Kronikles series, is highly praised and critically reviewed to be one of the best fantasy novels in India. Vadhan is married with two children. He aspires to be a politician and a reformist one day. Vadhan lives in New Gurgaon, India, with his wife.

Figmented Reality
By Zuko
Review By Ila Garg

Figmented Reality, a novel by Zuko, is published by Frog Books which is an imprint of Leadstart Publishing. The cover shows shadows—one of them being more prominent while the other is blurred some more—depicting reality and virtual reality perhaps.
