Set in the months right after the partition, Hyderabad is the second book in the Partition Trilogy by Manreet Sodhi Someshwar. It is a well-researched fictionalized account of historical events leading up to Operation Polo or the annexation of Hyderabad in 1948.
Unapologetic women. Inspiring women. Women who question societal norms. Women who lead from the front. Historical figures who have shaped the modern Indian woman of today who challenges patriarchy on a daily basis.
It has been a while since I shared a reading update. June started on a high note with Pride Month reads and summer picks. But it has also been an eventful summer. As always, books have come to the rescue keeping me sane through it all.
One of the highlights of summer at Blogchatter is the #BlogchatterEbook carnival. A platform for authors in the community to get published. And a delight for book lovers to sample a range of books, free for a limited time.
It’s July. Among all the things I look forward to this month (including a well-deserved long weekend), is the book freak out tag. As much as I enjoy participating in the tag, I also enjoy reading all the posts from the book community. The graphs, the statistics, and last but not the least, the recommendations.
Set in the times of the Bengali renaissance, Chronicles of the Lost Daughters explores the socio-cultural politics of 19th-century Bengal including caste hierarchies, real-life figures, and events. A thought-provoking read that will have you turning the pages.
Happy June! It has been an excellent reading month with titles across genres. And not a single DNF. As we step into the LGBTQ+ Pride Month, I plan to diversify my reads concentrating on more queer books. Particularly by Asian authors.
Hello there! Been a while. It is great to be back after a mini-hiatus of sorts. And I am all raring to go, sharing what I have been reading lately.
An illustrative symbol of women empowerment. That is what perfectly defines Aanandi by Jyoti Jha. The story of a remarkable young girl. An inspiring story of a determined woman to be self-reliant.
Happy March! February was a good reading month with a mixed bag of books in all shapes and sizes. It had me veering towards lighter reads. Always a mood booster.
