A Window to Her Dreams
This is a book that is brimming over with emotions – both expressed and implied. This is a book that will leave you a little sad with the reality of Aruna’s situation. But, this is also a book that will make you believe in the proverbial silver lining, with its ending.

Gone… There is finality, absolutism in the word that cannot be denied. A child leaving the nest leaves a mother bereft. The feeling of nothingness
Tilottama at a glance
If you are a Bengali, you must read this even if it is to only reminisce over parts of the city that hold joy for you. But, if you are a Non-Bengali then you should definitely read it because it will be an eye-opening journey into the emotion called Tilottama.

The day I turned 45, it hit me that my middle-age was characterized by middle-class mediocrity. Was this going to be the blueprint of my
Leaves Of Autumn And Other Poems
The one thing that struck me about these verses is that they are the unvarnished truth. The poet has not glossed over any of the verses to make them appear more endearing. Instead she has let them stand stark against the others to leave a lasting imprint on the readers.
The People Tree

All the plotlines in the book adhere to the central theme of the book to make it a volume of stories that are about people – you and us. I am certain that as you read the book, you will identify with some of the characters.
The Legend of Lachit Borphukan
The story in the book is backed by in-depth research and for that, I must congratulate the author. I believe that it is not easy to write historical fiction because the author needs to be conscious of not distorting the history for the readers.
The Teachings of Bhagavad Gita
I would recommend this book to those who carry a love for theology, mythology or philosophy. Anyone who is spiritually inclined or likes dabbling in body restorative techniques would be able to decipher the deeper meaning of this book.

Rainbow Housing Society
If you are looking for a light read and yet a read which leaves you contemplating the vagaries of human nature, then pick this book up.
Where the Crawdads Sing
If you are a poet at heart, if you love to read by the lamplight, all snuggled in bed, holding a steaming cuppa, then this book is for you.

The Deadly Dozen: India’s Most Notorious Serial Killers
Anirban writes with a fantastic command over both language and the topic. The stories are meticulously researched. The book would have been a drab read but for the fact that Anirban peppers it with liberal doses of droll humour and sarcastic wit.
