Description of Can You Teach a Zebra Some Algebra? : The Alchemy of Learning (English) (Paperback) by Debashis Chatterjee

In Can You Teach a Zebra Some Algebra? Debashis writes about the age-old system of education in India.

Our present day schools churn out students who have minimum working knowledge of everything with no deep knowledge of anything. The author writes about the need for achieving mastery in what we like and are passionate about.

Description of It Happens for a Reason (English) (Paperback) by Preeti Shenoy
When Vipasha, Vee to friends, eighteen and single, makes the decision to have her baby, she does more than give up her promising modeling career. She ends up cutting ties with her family and with Ankush, the man she thought she was in love with.

Fast-forward sixteen years and she now has two unusual careers-she runs a dog-boarding facility and is a gym instructor. Aryan thinks she is the coolest mom in the world and hopes she will one day find her Prince Charming-exactly what her best friend Suchi has in mind for her. But Vee secretly has a thing for Saurabh, the quirky vet.

Then, out of the blue, Ankush comes back into their life.

But can a decision that was taken at eighteen-more in the throes of lust than love-be the basis of a lifelong relationship? Is there a future for Ankush and Vee?

Vee, Aryan and Ankush are in for the ride of their lives. No seat belts, full speed and a very bumpy road ahead.
