Just as it Happened

About The Author: Kadambari Singh, a management graduate, passionate marketing professional, exploring branding and social media marketing. As a person I believe hard work is the key to everything. A firm believer of learning from everyone in life I admire self made people. I still believe the best way to spend a day is sitting beside a window, looking at the greenery around with the sweet drizzle sound. Love watching movies, listening to songs ranging from old classics to current hot favourites. I started blogging as I wanted to write and now I want to write even more. I never knew my blog will make me find so many likeminded people and teach so many new things. A writer at heart always yearns to pen a book and I am blessed to have two.

Book Blurb: “Just as it Happened” is a love story. The story revolves around life of two very different people Meer and Meera. Meer is a young IT professional trying to find his calling and Meera a young, independent, sorted girl. They meet by chance but it’s not just coincidence on how they got close. The story moves ahead with their days together and moments that enlighten them more about themselves than the other. How the story moves and ends, keep turning the pages.
Stay tuned for an almost real yet fictional, almost predictable yet unpredictable, seen yet unseen, heard yet never heard of, story of two hearts.

Book blurb: This book is a Sufi celebration — a celebration of love, humanity and values that seem to be losing their sheen.Simple, relatable and everyday life lessons are woven around equally simple and easy to use Urdu words that can easily become a part of the reader’s day to day lingo.And since Urdu is a language of the poets and a home for some of the finest poetry/couplets (ghazal, nazm, shayari and so on), these pieces are riddled with her most favorite pieces of Urdu poetry or shayaris, many of which formed the background score of her childhood that echoed with her mother’s favorite Jagjit Singh’s ghazals.

Sarah Zama

Roaring Twenties

About The Author: Sarah Zama was born in Isola della scala (Verona – Italy) where she still lives. She started writing at nine – blame it over her teacher’s effort to turn her students into readers – and in the 1990s she contributed steadily to magazines and independent publishers on both sides of the AtlanticAfter a pause, in early 2010s she went back to writing with a new mindset. The internet allowed her to get in touch with fellow authors around the globe, hone her writing techniques in online workshops and finally find her home in the dieselpunk community. Since 2010 she’s been working at a trilogy set in Chicago in 1926, historically as accurate as possible but also (as all her stories are) definitely fantasy. She’s currently seeking representation for the first book in the Ghost Trilogy, Ghostly Smell AroundIn 2016, her first book comes out, Give in to the FeelingShe’s worked for QuiEdit, publisher and bookseller in Verona, for over ten years. She also maintains a blog, The Old Shelter, where she regularly blogs about the Roaring Twenties and anything dieselpunk. 

Book Blurb: The Roaring Twenties is a fascinating time where so many things we now take for granted first came into existence. It was both a time of change for so many people (women, but also minorities, especially African Americans) and of ideas still stubbornly clinging to the past (the Scope Trial, for example, and to some extent, Prohibition itself). These contradictions are the heart of this era.

Vadassery Thaiparambil Rakesh

The Thorough Check

About The Author: Vadassery Thaiparambil Rakesh, was born to Mr. K.A.Menon and Mrs. Rema Menon, in a sleepy village of Kerala, amidst the greenery of paddy fields, overflowing ponds and canals, croaking of frogs and the mysticism of snake worship. He remembers the gruelling travel he and his elder brother had to go through, to reach the only English medium school in the area, sometimes having to swim across the canals brimming with the monsoon waters. Like most of his generation, Kapil Dev’s bouncers and Gavaskar’s straight drives made an impression in his mind. But the financial necessity to earn a professional college degree got the better of his cricketing ambitions.

He did his B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from Government Engineering College, Thrissur. All the graduating batches are like an exploding seed pod of Balsam. Amongst the various seeds that got dispersed to the different corners of the world, he landed in the holy land of Gujarat. Having completed his MBA in Marketing from the acclaimed Maharaja Sayajirao University, he works in Surat for a respected company. Bitten by the world of magical realism of a Garcia Marquez, Thriller tales of a Maclean or an Archer, nationalistic fervour of a Tharoor or a Nilekani, he finally took his dive to the deep ocean of writing. Poetry being his first love, he find solace in its magical world. Married to Ms Nisha Rakesh, they have a son, Rishi.

This is the story of a police officer who puts his life at stake in protecting the country. Narrated at the back drop of some scintillating scenes of love, passion and adventure it keeps the readers glued to the content. The earthly appeal, scenic locales and the contemporary relevance, make it a darling for all age groups. The book creates yet another “tryst with destiny”, this time in the twenty first century. The protagonist achieves what the creators of this nation couldn’t, a change of heart of the hardliners. A must read for the world citizens of tomorrow – Vasudaivakudumbakam.
