An Unnecessary Woman(Paperback) by Rabih Alameddine


Description of An Unnecessary Woman(Paperback) by Rabih Alameddine - Aaliya Saleh lives alone in her Beirut apartment, surrounded by stockpiles of books. Godless, fatherless, childless, and divorced, Aaliya is her family's 'unnecessary appendage'. Every year, she translates a new favourite book into Arabic, then stows it away. The thirty-seven books that Aaliya has translated over her lifetime have never been read - by anyone.

This breathtaking portrait of a reclusive woman follows Aaliya's digressive mind as it ricochets across visions of past and present Beirut. Colourful musings on literature, philosophy, and art are invaded by memories of the Lebanese Civil War and Aaliya's own volatile past. As she tries to overcome her ageing body and spontaneous emotional upwellings, Aaliya is faced with an unthinkable disaster that threatens to shatter the little life she has left.

A love letter to literature and its power to define who we are, the prodigiously gifted Rabih Alameddine has given us a magnificent rendering of one woman's life in the Middle East.

Description of Indias Biggest Cover Up (English) (Hardcover) by Anuj Dhar

Published in the year 2012, India's Biggest Cover Up is a book that is set to uncover the hidden mystery behind the death of the renowned freedom fighter from India, Subhash Chandra Bose.

Summary Of The Book

India's Biggest Cover Up is a sequel to Dhar's previous book, Back From Dead: Inside The Subhas Bose Mystery, which was released in 2005. Following that, Dhar and his colleagues had begun their research to find out the reason behind Subhash Chandra Bose's death, and requested extra information from the Ministry of Home Affairs, Indian Prime Minister's Office, and the Ministry of External Affairs. They also sought information from foreign governments through the Freedom of Information Act and the Right to Information Act.

This book comprises 13 chapters along with six appendices. It also has over 200 photographs, and 90 top-secret documents that provide a whole new perspective on the death of Netaji. Dhar presents the readers with insights into why he believes Pranab Mukherjee played a role in Bose's mysterious death. Dhar explains that how Mukherjee allegedly flew to Germany, and attempted to bribe Bose's wife into giving a written approval to take the ashes from Renkoji Temple, Japan, to India as Bose's ashes.

India's Biggest Cover Up also provides the readers with an original copy of the document in which the Indian government states that Bose's death occurred due to a plane crash. It also presents information about former IB Director B. N. Mullik, who lied under oath that the IB had never snooped on Shaulmari baba, who was considered Netaji by many. However, this book comprises certain top secret records of the Intelligence Bureau that Mullik had personally spoken to Jawaharlal Nehru about, concerning certain trivial matters about Shaulmari baba. He also throws light on the treasure of the Indian National Army, which includes diamonds, jewellery, and other valuables that were given by expatriate Indians. There were four men behind the looting, and Jawaharlal Nehru hired one of them even after knowing about his corrupt activities. Dhar explains that it can be regarded as the first scam that took place in Independent India.

This book was greatly appreciated by its readers, and newspapers across the country.

He reflects upon his early education, his days at the university, and his involvement with student politics.

In the next section of the book, he elaborates upon the early anti-apartheid movement with his induction into the African National Congress in 1950. He goes on to narrate the incidents that led up to his imprisonment for twenty-seven years and how he kept the fight going strong even from his prison cell.

Description of The Inheritance Of Loss (English) (Paperback) by  Kiran Desai

Kiran Desai's The Inheritance Of Loss is an award-winning novel which deals with the Indian immigrant's status in the United States. This is a fictional account that deals with Biju and Sai and their transition from colonialism to post colonialism.

Summary Of The Book

The Inheritance Of Loss is a novel by Kiran Desai that narrates the journey of an illegal immigrant Biju and the anglicized Sai living in the U.S.
The novel introduces the protagonist, Biju, as an illegal immigrant. Biju works as a cook in Sai's grandfather's household. This work juxtaposes two narratives, one dealing with Biju's life in the U.S and the other with Sai in Kalimpong, being raised by her maternal grandfather.

Set in 1986, the narrator begins the tale with Biju who has been trying to make a living in the U.S. Desai tries to trace the conflicts that are associated with immigrant groups, especially Indians. There is also a constant reiteration of the past within the present frame of narrative in the novel.

The protagonists are caught in an interesting paradigm; he rejects and resists the American culture, yet he also realizes the need to fit in in order to make a living. The prospect of going back to India and living in abject poverty is a fearful one for Biju.

The author, through this fictitious narrative, touches upon the real life anxieties of Indians living abroad that face an identity crisis. Sai's grandfather, Jemubhai Patel, faces such a dilemma despite his successful legal career. He is frustrated with those that cling on to the traditional Indian customs. He adopts the English way of life completely.

Desai also deals with the post colonial hangover which creates a sense of loss amongst one's own race as well as in the American community.
Snobbery, anger, mistrust, and a loss of traditions are some of the themes that Desai tackles in The Inheritance Of Loss. The Indians and the American Indians both struggle for a sense of self in the social space.

The author also incorporates the historic Gorkhaland Movement in the story.

About The Author

Kiran Desai is best known for her novel, The Inheritance Of Loss. Most of her works deal with social issues in post-colonial India such as the inability to transition from the past to the present and migration.

Her first published novel was called Hullabaloo In The Guava Orchard for which she was critically praised. She won the Betty Trask Award for this book. The Inheritance Of Loss was critically acclaimed and won her the 2006 National Book Critics Circle award for fiction.

She was born on the 3rd of September, 1971. Daughter of the noted author Anita Desai, she has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize several times. She was born in India but was raised and educated in England and the U.S.

Description of The Crown Prince, the Gladiator and the Hope: Battle for Change : Battle for Change (English)(Paperback) by Ashutosh

The political game in India has fundamentally changed-and in ways that are hard to pin down. The grand old party has collapsed, the crown prince has been vanquished. A right-wing government rode to power on the back of the unprecedented cult its leader has created around himself. The challenger, temporarily winded, has not lost hope. Senior journalist - and now political activist - Ashutosh has had a rare ringside view of modern Indian political history. When he started writing this book, the author was one of India's most influential journalists. By the time the book was done, he had given up a career in journalism in favor of the rough and tumble of politics. The crown prince, the gladiator and the hope emerges from the lessons learnt in that ferment. Ashutosh also provides a keen personal account of what it takes to fight an election in India, how the media was manipulated to reap huge electoral dividends and why elections 2014 was an epoch - making one, the first real twenty-first-century election centred on modern sensibilities and aspirations. A compelling narrative about the state of politics in India in the twenty first century, this is equally a hopeful book - one that believes the fight for a corruption-free nation is still on.

About the Author

From being an editor for eight years to fighting the Lok Sabha elections, Ashutosh has seen it all. One of the best-known faces of Hindi journalism, Ashutosh began his Carrier as a journalist in the print media, went on to be a part of the original Aaj Tak team that revolutionized TV news and then the editor of IBN7 from where he quit to become a political activist. This is his second book. He earlier wrote Anna - 13 days that awakened India (2012).

Description of My Clingy Girlfriend (English)(Paperback) by Madhuri Banerjee

What is a clingy girlfriend?

A clingy girlfriend will go through your phone.

She will destroy the contact numbers of every other girl on your phone.

She will delete your Facebook profile.

And will give you forty-five missed calls in the sixty minutes you put your phone on silent for an office presentation.

A clingy girlfriend will say

Carry two sets of fully charged mobile batteries so you can be in touch with me. Always.

In my dream, you were flirting with some other girl and then ended up in bed. Dreams are a manifestation of some act that is carried out in daily life. Are you cheating on me?

You have issues. You need to get therapy. Are you cheating on me?

And the worst one - why aren't we married yet?

Obrokranti Banerjee's girlfriend ticks all of these and more. Caught between wanting to break up and the fear that he'll never find another girlfriend if he does, Obrokranti finds himself doing things he never imagined - watching Shah Rukh Khan movies, having to fast with her on karva chauth and perhaps worst of all, having his girlfriend join him on a boys night out!

Bestselling author Madhuri Banerjee brings to you an uproariously howlarious account of a simple Bengali boy in Mumbai who copes, mopes and hopes to find logic and reasoning with his clingy girlfriend. It's writing Madhuri's never done before and promises to change her name if you don't laugh at least five times while reading this book!

You know you have one too. This is your story. My Clingy Girlfriend.
