The Diary on the Fifth Floor by Raisha Lalwani | Book Review

Summary:

A woman leaves her infant at home but finds her on a busy street in an unexpected turn of events.
Another woman wakes up in a flight hours later, befuddled, in the strangest circumstance.

A fascinating tale of a twenty-five-year-old woman that takes hold of us from the moment she enters the fifth floor of a hospital; more precisely, the psychiatric ward. Visibly terrified, she clutches at her clothbound diary, caught in the horns of a terrible dilemma—whether or not to hand over the diary to the doctor. She fears that she will be declared insane if her tangled web of thoughts unspooling in dark mysterious stories is read by the dissecting eye of a doctor.

What does this diary contain? As the novel progresses, we are drawn into characters and stories that are toe-curling, strange and haunting in their raw intensity. What is the story of this woman? What secrets lie in the pages of her diary? And most importantly, what happens on the fifth floor?

20 Diamond Rules for Ultimate Well-being by Ashraf Haggag | Book Review

Summary:


Life is like an equilibrium, composed of an equal amount of certainty and uncertainty. People who are truly successful at this experience accept the uncertainty and are equipped to deal with whatever life throws at them.

Clarifying the different areas of our lives and looking at each of them is a way we can pull our heads out of the sand and stop pondering as to why things aren’t working out for us as we had hoped.

The Closure by Sweta Sureka | Book Review

Summary:


Aarti slid back and started staring outside the window. It was not the first time she was getting married, but this time she was making the decision after a long haul of struggle.

Sahil: "I have no intention of being physical with you again, but this can be an accord of providing for each other as companions so that you can realize the aspects of your life that you deserve."

Rishabh: "Maybe I needed her to go away from me before I could realize her importance. God! I miss her."

Ansh: "You're evil and the worst person, I've ever met. I'd like to think that you're probably dead now A.. A..Ar... Aarti..."

It's not a midlife, neither is it an existential, nor an identity crisis, but just a need, an urge deep-found in human wishes: an appeal for closure. That's what the journey of Aarti is all about, from being a happily invested mother-cum-housewife to a fulfilled, self-aware human being.

I Did It My Way by Bikram Dasgupta | Book Review


Summary:

Story of a middle-class Bengali boy whose impatience became the reason for his success.

Bikram Dasgupta has seen it all—from a boy who joined IIT Kharagpur for ‘serious fun’ to selling oxygen cylinders in his first job; from being dubbed as an ‘ideas man’ by IT doyen Shiv Nadar to co-founding India’s number one PC company of its time, and then going solo with his own entrepreneurial venture.

I Did it My Way is not a rags-to-riches story, but a fascinating insight into the life and times of someone who didn’t shy away from thinking big and, for whom, progress meant creating his own road and establishing new milestones. Bikram reveals his beliefs, ideas, influences, failures, and successes in a rollercoaster journey of over 30 years, exemplified by a single-minded, near obsessive determination to move ahead in life, despite debacles.

The book is ultimately about reiterating the belief that every person has the power to create their own destiny.

Let Him Not Sink by Samir Parikh and Kamna Chhibber | Book Review

Summary:

Identification and early treatment of mental health illnesses in children are the first steps to their future well-being.

Let Him Not Sink: First Steps to Mental Health has been written by us to enhance the knowledge of adults working with children in relation to mental health conditions. Working as mental health professionals has repeatedly highlighted for us the necessity and requirement of easy-to-implement steps that facilitate the process of identification of an illness in children and adolescents and ways to work on it. It is the lack of information and guidance that is often the cause of conditions going unrecognized, lack of timely help being provided and an inability for an adult to reach out to a child at risk. To be informed is to be empowered and that is the aim towards which this book is directed.
